This has to be the ultimate proof that people just…don’t understand…what “sources” are. I literally gave you a page. number.
look, here we’ve got the post, right?:
Okay now look at this part very carefully:
That’s the name of the book and all the information you need to find the book. And I give you the PAGE on which you can find this information, okay? Here:
Got it? Okay, let’s grab the book. you can get your very own copy of it here.
Got your book?
Alright. Now, let’s carefully turn to PAGE 11:
Okay, let’s look around for a minute to see if it says anything about CLEOPATRA, and if you’re using the PDF, you can use the search function of whatever PDF viewer you use to search out relevant terms!
Here we go:
