-Wonko, you make this too easy... If it's blindingly obvious, then please, tell me in which way I've screwed things up. Either all my dimensions are now string values (which makes things FUBAR at best), or they're all undefined. Take your pick.--No, the rule quite clearly states that my dimensions can be "any real number." So now they're all "any real number." I moved along the axes,Okay, then. I change the value of my Score, Charm, BAC, Activity,Entropy, and Style to "any real number," noting that those undefinedvalues are within the limits set by the subsections of 154 that definethose dimensions. Now, this doesn't mean that I win, but it does meanthat either you didn't win either or we've got to do the SOE dance again.No, it means that you tried to use the hole I found to something morethan that hole can do, namely setting your dimensions to a nonnumerical value, whereas I did it the right way and won. Just because I found a way to change dimensions in some respectsas it were, to the point "any real number." Now where is that point?-I think you just stepped over the line from weird to absurd. "any real number" could be interpreted to mean any number that is real, or it could mean the string value "any real number"; but in this case it's blindingly obvious what the meaning is.
Or you tried to do something impossible, and thus failed. I choose that, mostly 'cause it's true, but also 'cause it's funny.
