No, you misunderstand.  Plugging in huge assumptions for multiple
unknowns will not give good numbers.  Unless you psychic.

I am not Eric, nor am I speaking on his behalf, but given the attitude
of the know-it-alls who have not been willing to share more than sound
bites and negative responses, I would only share on a private e-mail not
