"One is the loneliest number
That you'll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It's the loneliest number since the number one..."

"The number 2 has been exceptional from the earliest times, in many aspects of human life.... It is distinguished in many languages, by the presence of dual cases for nouns, used when referring to 2 of the object, rather than 1 or many."

"Modern languages reflect the significance of 2 in words such as dual, duel, couple, pair, twin and double. The early Greeks were uncertain as to whether 2 was a number at all, observing that is has, as it were, a beginning and an end, but no middle."

"Division into two parts, dichotomy, is more significant psychologically and more frequent in practice than any other classification. The commonest symmetry is bilateral, two-sided about a single axis, and is of order 2. Our bodies are bilaterally symmetrical, and we naturally distinguish right from left, up from down, in front from behind. Night is separated from day, there are two sexes, the season are expressed in pairs of pairs, summer and winter separated by spring and autumn, and comparisons are most commonly dichotomous, such as stronger or weaker than, better or worse than, youth versus age and so on."

Ladies and Gentlemen

It is my proud duty as the Minister of Pez (MOP), to announce that VoodounGroove and ArtRimbaud shall rule this board together. Just as noted above, for night there is day, for up there is down, for ying there is yang.

For Queen Kaiti, there is King B.

For those who were under the impression that the Queen and Mr. B did not get along, FEAR NOT.

They are indeed good friends and shall rule together is perfect harmony. Two will not be as bad as one, and no one shall be lonely.

Thank you, that is all

Becky - MOP
