Hey man, when I ask you how is 2+2 you will answer -> 4 but when I ask you 
how is 2*3.141596535 you use a calculator. In both cases I speak with 
you(make a connection). In the first case you don't need to use calc because 
you don't have to use it.
PHP and Mysql are two standalone apps and when PHP wants to communicate with 
mysql a connection is needed.
