...that a triangle has 180 degrees is that back then when them things were
assigned, a year only had 360 days; Xmas came 5 1/4 days earlier.
Methinks we morons here should team up and march on the "Mathematics
High Place" demanding that this be changed to 400; much easier to handle
100 degrees quadrants (plus create employment making up sin/cosine tables).
Our triangles would now have 200 degrees; WOWEE! Imagine that:
we will be able to have two 90 degree angles, so call on Big Pete Pythagoras
twice to solve "c"; triangles will have new "standard" sides of a,c,c !!
