[Discipulus]: if i had to go to psycho i need to ask why i always end with over complex datastructure: now i have an HoHoAoH in my object

[hippo]: (asking because I'm sure you said before about learning English) Did you know there are 2 different words for smaller quantities in English? They are "less" and "fewer". Fewer applies to a number of discrete things like days.
