19. Rush Holt won when absentee ballots were counted.

One of those was mine. I was in Italy in election day.

It came down to a few hundred votes. All we needed was a few hundred people to engage in the asinine theory "my vote doesn't matter" and I would have been deprived of the best congressperson I ever had. I note that throughout his tenure in Congress, Dr. Holt was a leader on preserving electoral integrity, particularly with respect to the issue of electronic hacking. He was of course a physicist, so he was acutely aware of the nature of computation.

He was ahead of his time.

As it happened the town council election that year in my town did come down to one vote.

In calculus, the integral represents a continuous summation of infinitesimals. The nature of the infinitesimal has bearing on the result. Change the infinitesimal as you change the result.

I'm glad despite an attitude I personally find appalling that you'll vote. I however find your statement on carbon dioxide and wear and tear on my car parts to be one of the silliest arguments I've seen here, and I can't fathom how it could be expected to be taken seriously.
