I'm afraid you're as mistaken as I was on that one (well, on the 'thinks
he knows everything' part). I suppose that makes you no better than me.

I'm not playing for points. I said out loud what some others didn't, and
others just solved by kill filling Shlomi without saying anything.

But eh, I managed to embarras myself, so feel free to poke a stick at
me, that's the price of my having made a incorrect default assumption.

Some other day, I can also tell you about that guy who I had to Email
and was called Fernanda, who I assumed was female after even going
through the trouble of checking with a Spanish friend that Fernanda was
indeed a female name.
