I don't have [a didactic motivation]. I'm addressing comments and questions that are directed at me.

I guess if you think that my aspirations are 'be a jerk on hatrack' y'all prolly not had too many real jerks on hatrack.

True, but people were dinging me for personal attacks.
So you decided to disguise the next one as an attack on twinky's teacher instead of on him?

Blayne, an easy way to do it with your typical D&D dice is this: add the lowest number (1) to the highest number (4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 20) and divide by two.

So you get 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 10.

But which you, personally, apparently did need. Your faith in the overlap between what your classes teach you and what you need to know would be touching if it weren't so obviously a defense mechanism to cover laziness. And, by the way, these are not Riemann sums.

He holds this forum's office of Captain Atheism.

Everyone's gotta have one, it has many sacred duties.
