I can tell Frolloos has been hanging out at the otter tree. He's turning into something likeable.

I may have misunderstood you, but I'd have written "someone" instead of "something", and if I really wanted to pay someone a compliment I'd have compared him/her to a grumpy hedgehog. Along the lines of "ah, you old prickly hedgehog".

The big question is how to avoid an argument with yourself? Shut of the left or the right side of the brain? Or fine tune each side to to go ambidextrous?  As we know, not good with one side dominating over the other, it leads to imaginary numbers in your head when one side dominate!

"Only about one percent of people are naturally ambidextrous."  and even much less among mathematicians?

or is it opposite? ambidextrous people cannot agree with themselves?
