    ( x_main-mmsta <> c_mmsta_32 OR x_main-mmsta <> c_mmsta_33 ) is always true, but most of the respondants couldn't understand it either. (c_mmsta_32 and c_mmsta_33 are constants with different values).

    What's a respondant? Are they similar to respondents, but with added formic acid?

    What if x_main-mmsta = null? Then it's not true (depending on your database...)

    Is any one else grateful he put the explanation on the end as it means **** all to me!
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius
