    True for very small values of "approximately".

    Only in Woke math is it true that 7*360 = 360, so we don't racially discriminate against the integer seven; it's just like all the other colonial integers.

    Unsure who originated that 1 field more or less approximates 7 fields...how woke is it make the statement, yet only depict 6?
    I might be missing the point, backwardness does that to me. Wagering a majority view things their way as well.

    Mr. Carrey did this 24 June 1990; or 30 years, 11 months, 17 days ago. He derided men participating sports where they didn't belong. One narrow agenda still campaigns this is not only OK, even underwriting it.
