Hi, Thanos

Not disagreeing with your premise, but I'm wondering how seriously we are supposed to take this account.

It's not the first time I've seen what's purportedly a historical account turn out to resemble a math puzzle of some kind.

Length 730 / height 60 = 12.166666666.

My favorite Remen = 1.216733607 ft

What to make of that?

(Note: Post corrected from "Length 730 / height 60 = 1.2166666666" to "Length 730 / height 60 = 12.166666666." Thanks Dr. T for pointing that out)

Cheers!
