Also, are you double clicking when you submit posts? Try clicking just once if so.

I'll try both of those.  It seems to be just a Tapatalk issue though.  Thanks Tibs!

60 seconds/minute x 60 minutes/ hour x 24 hours per day, plus the original post.

Be warned:  If you point out an error in my maths, I shall quite probably become hysterical and resume drinking heavily, until I am nothing but a husk of my former self.

No mistake (just checked it). Smile But I don't get how you get the number 2 and why it's raised to [86400+1]th power.

RE: Posts are doubling!
Say we start with two LadyForCamus posts (leave the original one out for this purpose) at second #1. This is 2^1. The amount of new posts at second #2 is 4 (the two posts from second #1 have doubled). This is 2^2. At second #3, we have 2^3, at second #4 it becomes 2^4 and so on. Since there are 86 400 seconds in a day, I came up with 2^86 400.

I'm sure the correct maths probably involves things like factorials, derivatives, and haemophagic algorithms, but I find myself having a hard time caring.

True enough, but once you've raised two to the 86 400th power, the 1 becomes pretty insignificant.

I recall a basic science class where the teach mentioned that the temperature at the core of the sun was 15 million degrees.  The Class Snot (no, it wasn't me, oddly enough) raised his hand and asked, 'Is that degrees Kelvin or degrees Celsius?' to which the teacher replied, 'Yes.'

My posts keep doubling, but only when I post from my phone. This is killing me. Ugh.

any hotter would be dangerous
If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.

What goes on in the center of the sun is extremely well understood.  If it wasn't, our H bombs wouldn't work.
