Mr. Eklöf didn't say -9 he said closer to -9. But it wouldn't matter if
he had said -300 because he was writing hyperbolically, not literally.

You're not one of those people who, if someone says "It's raining cats
and dogs," looks out the window and says "No it's not! That's just
ordinary water," are you?

No, I'm not.

Upon my initial reading, I mis-understood his comment... he was actually talking about the Iridium satellite, which certainly WOULD be closer to mag -9 than to mag 9...

well, is -9 the same as - 9, or - 9 ...
is -9 = -9 ?
or, is -9 = .0000000585657595855658 on you scale of numbnuts? How about accorns?
