Current Topic:
Microsoft Excel is WRONG!!! Beware...
here MS is correct:
"5^2 - 5^2 = 0
-5^2 + 5^2 = 50 Does that make any sense? "

yes, it makes sense:
just ad ALL the proper math signs, and associate the sign with the following expression, the way it
should be read is:

+5^2 -  +5^2 = 0 is correct
-5^2  + +5^2 = 50 is correct

the minus in each case has a different meaning and thinking or believing that both of the "" expressions should be sero is derived from  "our" sloppy ways

studying C++, the order of operations is very well layed out and leaves no doubt to the student, meaning MS has the knowledge and capability to do it right.

Otherwise Billy would be talking down to us .......

I haven't worked on the threat initiator's problem yet
