    um...maybe I am being dense but aren't they the same bloody distribution?

    Your maths is good, but your humour is slightly impaired.

    Well, technically, you can implement a Turing complete machine the just uses addition and subtraction. Once you have a turing complete machine you got access to a lot so grpah theory can indeed be reduced to just addition.

    Still doesn't stop the analogy being compelte and utter bollocks though.

    You have access to everything.
