    My bad LaH.
    Although my post was light hearted but I genuinely missed those two very important words.

    9 is the all powerful number. Take any number above 9, add it's component numbers, subtract the sum of the components from the original then add the component numbers of the result and the answer will eventually be 9.

    For example 386
    3+8+6=17
    386-17=369
    3+6+9=18
    1+8=9

    Or 26587
    2+6+5+8+7=28
    26587-28=26559
    2+6+5+5+9=27
    2+7=9

    Yes 18 pops up all the time meaning 1+8 = 9

    The brilliant satirical book Catch 22 was originally going to be called

    Catch 18, but there was another Book at the time with 18 in the title so they had to pick something else and 22 sounded funny. So that's what they went with.

    I think the real story with Santo doesn't relate to his capacity to be right.
    Oh, and Apex may have issue with your spelling.
    But just blame spellcheck, I did and totally got away with it.....

    Yossarian looked at him soberly and tried another approach. "Is Orr crazy?"
    "He sure is," Doc Daneeka said.
    "Can you ground him?"
    "I sure can. But first he has to ask me to. That's part of the rule."
    "Then why doesn't he ask you to?"
    "Because he's crazy," Doc Daneeka said. "He has to be crazy to keep flying combat missions after all the close calls he's had. Sure, I can ground Orr. But first he has to ask me to."
    "That's all he has to do to be grounded?"
    "That's all. Let him ask me."
    "And then you can ground him?" Yossarian asked.
    "No. Then I can't ground him."
    "You mean there's a catch?"
    "Sure there's a catch," Doc Daneeka replied. "Catch-22. Anyone who wants to get out of combat duty isn't really crazy."
    There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.
    "That's some catch, that Catch-22," he observed.
    "It's the best there is," Doc Daneeka agreed.

    You know some of your posts used to really annoy me.
    Then the other day I realised you were really enjoying having to fend off posters who are attacking you left right and center.
    All of a sudden your posts became enjoyable.
    You love this schitt.

    And the real story with Santo is?

    I envisage him to be a pig rolling in the mud.

    Was gold.

    And she's done it with her will and talent.

    I assume having the one partner, now husband, has given her that personal love side, so she's content that way, and then she just focuses on her running.

    Great athlete. Cones across great person too.

    Yes, she is just so switched on, and real.

    I adore her.

    (Jana, certainly drama filled, but two time world champion, only Australian athlete to represent Australia both at the summer AND Winter Olympics. Becoming a doctor. In her ways, for all her dramas she has achieved a lot. But likely held back too somewhat.)

    Oh, her injuries were big.
    Shattered her hand in a fall, hamstrings, back spasms.
    But she just focuses, works it out, gets on with it.

    Saints pretty much unable to play finals now.
    So......no chance for the player who shall not be named to debut.
    Bloody Collingwood medical team....

    What an effort.
    Wish some of our players had the heart that Sally has.
    Never down, never beaten.
    And as far as I know she no longer has a coach and is doing her training off her own back.
    Stand to be corrected on that, but if true, even more remarkable that her mental application can lift her to this level.

    See my avatar.

    Reserved for wonderful horses and very special people.

    And she is definitely one of them (not a wonderful horse; a very special person).
