Did the baseball player say, “I can do the splits”?

between the words “friends” and “Vanessa” most obviously the answer Teach wants. However I'd have writ

@iscream4juice,
Clearly you misunderstand the community on A2K. it is not an automated homework answerer.

We on A2K are people - NOT a program. if you want someone to do all of your homework, you're not paying attention to any posts. We are members just like you (only not quite as lazy)...volunteering help at our discretion...freely. You'll be likely to get some help as long as you're willing to show your making some effort.

Posting on a daily basis...dozens of questions...with no effort on your part, isn't what the community forum is about.
