    Thanks for helping me prove there is no way to sign or say bubbles angrily without looking ridiculous and making people laugh. There is no way to say bubbles angrily.

    ADMIN – Hi Hope,

    Yes. Interestingly, the first recorded observation that it is impossible to communicate bubble angrily first appears in 403BC in Plato’s dialogues. But, it wasn’t till more than two millennium later when that Abrahamonovic, working in secrecy behind the iron curtain, provided a rigorous scientific proof of the bubbles conjecture.
