Let me introduce Hadron Quark, affectionately known as COLA's Resident
"Expert" on Everything - Ever®, who is without exception the most stupid
person I have ever encountered in my entire life.

And I don't say this as some offhand insult, it is a simple statement of
fact. He makes Dubya Bush look like a Nobel Prize-winning mathematician
by comparison, so I'm afraid you'd be wasting your time simplifying the
truth for his benefit.

You could liquidise the truth with a pound of bananas, and spoon-feed it
to Hadron whilst carefully wiping the dribbles from his mouth, and he'd
still totally fail to understand.
