    An amazing post like this one deserves our great attention. Sometimes the vagueness of a word in the title may discourage the reading of a buzz. In my case it attracted me to find out the heck what it means.
    Rheomodes for may is visualization and transformation of words and stories so that new perspectives may emerge. Thank you @Steve Brady for teaching me a new way of giving words an action by re-story them. Shared proudly

    Today's obscure contribution to the Name That Tune Hive. https://www.bebee.com/group/name-that-tune-music It's a simple game, From the lyrics, name the song and artist, no looking it up. Arbitrary points offered to winners.

    I'm as old as the King of Sweden

    I can drink in Connecticut

    You're a year older than the Princess Anne

    I don't mean it as an unkind cut

    I'll never catch King Hailie Selassie

    And you'll never catch Princess Grace

    OK, no takers. Here's the answer: Louden Wainwright III wrote "Rufus is a tit man" about his son, and now artist on his own, Rufus Wainwright.. Louden was married to one of the McGarrigle sisters, and his family includes Martha Wainright, yet another musician in the family.

    OK. Here's a hint. The same artist, performer, song writer wrote the following lyrics in another song: Marco Polo craved the spice and silk
    And Rufus craves the mamma's milk
    No moo-cow no billy-goat
    Is gonna get the baby's vote.
    Come on mamma,
    Come on and open up your shirt
    Yeah you've got the goods mamma
    Give the little boy a squirt.

    I think this may be too tough for most people, he said, flinging down the gauntlet, so if nobody tries this by tonight, I'll offer up the first hint.

    Me temo que @Sergio Martínez está en lo cierto. Son 288. Cuando no hay paréntesis que lo indiquen la división y la multiplicación tienen el mismo orden de precedencia y por tanto se aplica en orden de lectura. Se puede comprobar usando la calculadora del ordenador ;-)
