HP: You ordered me to stop talking about Hegel and to stop making intellectual references. What you quoted was my reply to your order, which you gave right after I praised you.

JB's quote: "A point = about one length at 5f and two lengths at 10f." In other words, weight costs more lengths at longer distances, which is what I had written: "Weight will cost more lengths at longer distances."

The rest of JB's quote: "WHETHER IT IS A POINT OF WEIGHT OR A POINT OF ABILITY." In other words, ignoring four pounds of weight, as you suggest doing, is the same thing as ignoring three quarters of a point of ability (actually .80), which equals about a length and one half at a mile and one quarter.

JB: You could have stopped this any time you wanted to. You chose to stop it now.
