At a party, my wife set 24 place cards on our round table, but everybody sat down randomly, and nobody was in the right place.
My wife commented: "let's turn the table round, until at least two will be in the right place."
Can this always be so, or was it just a fluke?

Thanks for all your kind words -- you all sure know how to make a newcomer feel welcome!
(For the record, I like McWorter's modular proof just fine -- much better than Quizno's...)
