I DONT GET IT MAN TOO HARD

I admier your teaters, they are always challenging.

I admire your typing skills.

whoa, hard. Nice job

Not "too hard", too wrong. Where in the world you get 151 (CLI) as a result for a division of 101 (CI) by 50 (L)? You divide CI by L you get II and a remainder of I, since romans don't have decimals.

By the way, I can't believe it took 7 years until anyone noticed that...

When I saw the title, I thought of the nine mythical Norse worlds...
