  •  Columbus Number (0+ / 0-)

    When I was in school, a fellow student presented the results of his student project to the class. Everything was tabulated very neatly and correlated nicely with the expected results.  But his main formulas had a factor in them called "Co." The prof asked what that was. And the answer was, "It's the Columbus number. I divided all my preliminary results by 1492 to make them come out."
