Okay, Gerry, I'll bite...

Here's my answer to your questions:
1. No [unless you're referring to a 1980s American sitcom that was named 227. But, for some reason, I don't think you are referring to that] Maybe you mean two hours less than 24/7? {which came from African American slang and means "24 hours a day seven days a week". No? Well, I didn't think so.

2. Yes, but it was so long ago that I don't remember any of it.

Oh, alright. I'll confess that the word "pie" popped in my head when you said "geometry". But I don't really know what "pie" means in the context of geometry, and frankly, it doesn't bother me at all that I don't know that. I suppose that I'll get around to looking it up on an Internet search engine. But I figure I'll live if I don't ever find out what that word means in geometry.

Geometry was definitely not my favorite subject in high school. I recall that I barely passed it with a C average. And, as you can see I don't remember much of it.

Besides proving that math is not my strong suit, what this exercise suggests to me is that something that automatically means one thing to one person or to many people within the same nation or in different nations may mean a completely different thing or things to another person or many other people within that same nation or nations.

We are not all the same. And thank God for that!
