    but you said earlier that -5x - 1 was right

    how did you get 5x + 1 the other way round?

    You've got me in a maths mood. :teeth:

    I honestly thought that it was correct :sadnod:

    I'll have many more sooner or later, starting my assignment now :emo:

    Do you have any maths work for your degree? (I'm sure economics has a lot of maths involved) why not take the advantage and do some for that?

    I just went over to my girlfriends, with the intention of breaking up with her.

    I get there and she's in a bit of mood and said "I've broken my hair straighteners, my laptop and this mug today"

    Saying "Well, add your heart to that list because I'm about to break that" was not the best break up sentence I've ever come out with...

    Who am I kidding? Yes it was - it was awesome!

    All you need is: (1+x)^n = 1 + nx + \frac{n(n-1)}{2!}x^2 + \frac{n(n-1)(n-2)}{3!}x^3...
