what's confusing me about subtraction, if I'm on polls number 4 I smashed "analogy" two polls, then I would be on the space between the poll number 2 and poll number 3 .. so it's converse to math which 4-2=2 which I must be on poll number 2

Why between two poles? (That's the spelling you want, by the way.)

Here's jumping 3 steps, from #1 to #4:
Code:
o-->o-->o-->o   o   o   o   o   o   o  ... 1 + 3 = 4
Here's jumping back 2 steps from #4:
Code:
o   o<--o<--o   o   o   o   o   o   o  ... 4 - 2 = 2
Now you're at #2.

Who or what is smashed?
