If you cut a piece of string in half, do you get 2 strings or 2 half-strings?  ???

It depends on how many joints of pipe are in the hole and how may of these are collars.

You're just stringing them along and twine to confuse them. Do you drive a Honda AcCORD?

 ??? hmm... a peaice of string.... and I thought this would be about supersting theory... oh well.

x=lenth of string
(x-385748913343655555555557932465)+385748913343655555555557932465
still with me?
then divide the answer by 2 before doubling it.
AND THERE IS YOUR ANSWER!

a peice of string is ALWAYS x long

just a thought
