1 (= the number of times you have so far sandwich-posted in a legitimate part of the sequence * all other sandwich posts you potentially made but that was mired in someone else's confusion)

Damnit people, this is why I said to keep the truce. Because now everyone's ganging up on the cats.
Also, don't forget to contact your local Eldritch Being(s), so that they can help with our mission to destroy the universe.

I've been out of college since 1988... did you use i to mean an imaginary number?
If I recall math, setting i=5 for instance, your answer would be -5*(-5)=25, so without a value of i given, it's just a guess, right?

i is the square root of -1, so i2=-1

-2 (because I don't want to go back to 0 just yet, but don't let that stop the next+1 person if it's possible)

i is imaginary, yes. Sorry, bad grammar... i am imaginary.
