    Well I read the posting by Jojo... and I'm still none the wiser and know this will haunt me until the day I die or increase my IQ by consuming gallons of fish oil to upgrade myself so I understand it.

    Many thanks Jojo!

    Like biker, and despite that brilliant explanation from jojo, i still don't get it. Not going to look at it today as it will only make my head even fuzzier.

    HeHe!

    It's not me who worked it out, just Googled it!

    I think what's happening is that the figures all loose a small amount of height each and wthey all get added together to make a 13th figure. I think they are all shorter by 1/12th and the 12 1/12th make up the thirtenth figure, because they are quit small anyway you can't really see the difference in heights betwenn the twelve figures and the 13th figures.....

    Something like that...:rolleyes::confused:

    I can understand the theory of making twelve men smaller and creating a 13th out of the bits but how does it happen in front of my eyes without me seeing it???
