|The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher|
esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.
|I do not seek the ignorant; the ignorant seek me -- I will instruct them.|

|This is the first numerical problem I ever did. It demonstrates the|
power of computers:
Enter lots of data on calorie & nutritive content of foods. Instruct

minimum level of each component, for fixed caloric content. The
results are that one should eat each day:
1 glass of skim milk
27 heads of lettuce.
-- Rev. Adrian Melott
