Did you forget to run the test after correcting fourty_two to forty_second? ;-)

I’ve been waiting for this for ages.

This should be Array#forty_second

Ok, ok. This is funny. Thanks for reducing the overhead from your previous version.

Awesome, though now we’re missing Array#six and Array#nine.

Great, now I’ll have to alias_method_chain this to forty_second…

Don’t need Array#thirty_seven too ?

@charlieok

Um, shouldn’t test_second_through_tenth be renamed to test_second_through_fifth?

@pandemix

Does your test succeed? The method is misspelled, using a ‘u’ where no ‘u’ should be.

Cute, tho’. Nice tip o’ the hat to the late Mr. Adams. Just started re-reading those books. What about 23, 37, and all those other important numbers? ;)

BTW, who uses ‘fourth’ or even ‘third’? (‘fifth’ is right out)

  1. first makes a lot of sense, #last is useful…

@radar is right, this should be Array#forty_second.
