    16,700 points divided by 27 fish = 618.51851851851852 points per fish

    618.51851851851852 is a Pennsylvania standard known in South Philly as the Adrian Peninno constant (a "Yo! Adrian" for short)


    33,400 is known as a Creed
    66,800 is a Clubber
    133,600 is a Drago
    267,200 is a Tommy Gunn
    534,400 is a Mason Dixon

    Zen needs our collective thoughts and encouragement to kick some Goddamn Furner ass. Zen, I have attached some motivational paragraphs:

    ...In the third film, Creed appeared at the first fight between Clubber Lang and Rocky Balboa. Following Rocky's loss, Creed took over as Balboa’s manager and trainer following his former mentor Mickey's death caused by Lang. The pair traveled to Creed's old gym in Los Angeles, California in preparation for a rematch with Lang. Creed encourages Rocky not to ignore the naysayers that say he is too old, but instead refocus himself. Creed mentions that Rocky will owe him "a big favor" once he wins, which he does not specify at first. Rocky's training was geared toward making him quicker and more agile, to counter a seasoned brawler like Clubber Lang. Rocky has trouble concentrating during his training, suffering from guilt over Mickey's demise and self-doubt. Creed helps Rocky rediscover the fire inside that had won him the title-which he had clearly lost in the time leading up to the Lang fight. Creed calls this fire the "Eye of the Tiger"....(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_Creed)

    Zen, this one's for you...


    Risin' up, back on the street
    Did my time, took my chances
    Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
    Just a man and his will to survive

    So many times, it happens too fast
    You change your passion for glory
    Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
    You must fight just to keep them alive

    Chorus:
    It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
    Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
    And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
    And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

    Face to face, out in the heat
    Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
    They stack the odds 'til we take to the street
    For we kill with the skill to survive

    chorus

    Risin' up, straight to the top
    Have the guts, got the glory
    Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
    Just a man and his will to survive

    Boot,

    With all due respect, while you are a wealth of creative genius, I think you need to get out and wet a line...

    Cheers!
