Well, of course, it was obvious. All the clues were right there. Your own site has a very nice article on the subject.

If I am at a records store and I see a copy of Revolver for $22.98 and the store has a 20% off sale. If the sales tax is 6% how much would I pay?

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Is this a SAT question? a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

20% off $22 is roughly $5 so it'd be $17, give or take... then put in 6%... around $20 give or take.

But I flunked basic algebra in high school, so... odds are I'm way off base.

Has anyone on the forum been compared to a Beatle?

Yeah, I've been compared to John Lennon.  It's not surprising, because I grew my hair out in the first place to look like him.  Everybody seems to have some different famous person to compare me to.  I've gotten everything from Kurt Cobain to Weird Al to Rob Zombie to Jesus to Kid Rock to... (this list could go on a lot longer).

 

EDIT: Oh, on the forum.  No.  Never mind.  I thought you meant the outside world.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I think she meant the outside world. What she meant with ''on the forum'' was just us, members of this forum. That part was a bit unnecessary.

Oh, I mis-read "Has anyone on the forum been compared to a Beatle?" as "Has anyone been compared to a Beatle?" and then I mis-read it as "Has anyone on the forum compared you to a Beatle?."  I was drinking last night.
