i think that it must be . Am i correct?
Doh! Yes, you are right. I have edited the post.

Well, I guess it would go something along the lines of For some reason I don't think that's the end of it though...
now remember that

Hmm... I guess that can be considered a solution? Or? If it is, can we simplify it further?
