    The contrivance was necessary, or induction?
    Both, if you are doing boxes and lines. The lecturer specifically said if the question says just "prove" rather than "give a structured proof" you can give a more informal, shorter, prose-like proof (last page in your lecture notes).

    TheUnbeliever: Youth Hostel just does not appeal to me at all. I'm probably a bit of a snob, tho'.
    TheUnbeliever's friend: Oh, you are.

    Awesome. Incidentally, can you shed some light on precisely where to start/end the boxes? I asked my supervisor and she said she really wasn't very sure, and I really don't want to have to go look up the specific textbook the approach is from. :o: It looks like, in general terms, a box's scope is the proof of one sub-clause.

    You start a box as you make an assumption. You end the box when you discharge the assumption (i.e. you have proven what you wanted to prove from the assumption). The box is to stop you from using stuff inside it that could be not valid when the context of the assumption does not apply.

    I went up to a young lady in the park this evening and said:

    "Excuse me, I'm very sorry to trouble you but you don't happen to have seen a policeman anywhere near here have you?"

    "No" she replied with a friendly smile, "I'm afraid I haven't"

    That was when I got my knife out...

    French!
    I figured if anyone would appreciate my embarrassing French moment of the day, it'd be you :p:
    I translated "millions of viewers" as "millions de trices" in an essay about TV.
    Why "trices"?
    The dictionary said "téléspectateur/trice" :facepalm:

    To be perfectly honest, I don't know the word for viewers, so wouldn't have known there was anything wrong with that.:o:

    What does it translate back as? :p:
