      You must explain your answers, you know, but Dog is correct.

      Old Jill, J
      Old Kim, K
      Years between Old and Now, D.

      Jill is 33 years old today.
      J + D = 33.

      This is three times as old as Kim was
      33 = 3K; K = 11.

      when Jill was as old as Kim is now.
      J = K + D.

      33 - D = K + D
      33 = K + 2D
      33 = 11 + 2D
      22 = 2D
      11 = D.

      K + D = 11 + 11 = 22.

              Dave got it right, so +1
              Also, Magna is correct about showing work, but I forgot.

              And yes, that is my copperhead display specimen.
              And it looks nothing like a corn snake or water snake. It is such a pretty snake though.
              I fed it for the 1st time today actually.

              How about another Fact or Crap (true or false) since we haven't done one in a while.

              American Indians used smoke signals to communicate long messages.

              Is that true or false, and you need to provide links to prove your answer. :D

                Crap for long range but fact for brief signals such as enemy approaching, sickness or victory after a battle.

                and links to prove it.

                      On the subject of smoke signals, be sure to read the book The Victorian Internet. It's a short read, and incredibly interesting. It talks about the history of communication from the development of electricity (which really started around 1850, very recent) and also from the use of "signaling" like smoke signals and flag and tower semaphores.

                      It also talks about telegraph-based chat systems. In those days the guys sitting in telegraph offices might sit around bored with nothing to do, so would chat in much the way we do now on Teamspeak or IRC. They were the 19th century nerds.
