I came close to having a "natural E" eighth note bounce in on the right side, but then all the "see sharp" and "be flat" jokes came to mind.

I always hated logarithms, but at least I could understand what base 10 was. How do you have a base where you don't even know what the number is? Why not 2? Why not pi? Oh, yes, because this irrational number was "natural"!
