It's about Bible verses
(2 Timothy 4:3-4)
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Is that article about psychology or religion?

2012-09-10 05:31:55

Amen to that article! I'm pleasantly surprised that you've sent it  smile
Actually my point was ..that you were overreacting with compliments.. I know you were joking, but we must be careful with every word..
It's easy to tickle ppl's ears..

but don't worry..I'm not overestimating myself, actually I'm very self critical

That doesn't seem wise to me. … s-The-Ears

I am inclined to 'tell it like it is' or keep schtum.

Perhaps your 'super-ego' will see the wisdom in this.

words that tickle the ears

Feed your ego ?  What does it eat then ?

Are you trying to feed my ego? smile
Luckily I know you're kidding..

You have misunderstood my comment.  It wasn't a criticism.

I am in awe because you thought all that in one line.

I had to try to follow each step, spend a while doing that, then re-write it in several steps for my little brain.

I make that 1 noemi brain = 8 times a Bob brain.

Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!
Please see this and tell me if I realised it correct:

Adding OB to both sides,

------> Statement 1
In Triangle ABP:

Adding PC to both sides,

----> Statement 2

From Statement 1 & 2,


P.S: There was a little bug, I just edited this post

I agree that I should have been more detailed
I hope Agnishom is satisfied now

hi noemi

Note that your one liner took my little brain 8 steps!  dizzy

I stand in awe.  (well sitting actually)


2012-09-09 23:34:59

thank you Bob, great explanation.. I started drawing, but then I saw your post

It's an excellent proof by noemi.  I shall humbly try to explain it.

Extend BO until it cuts AC.  Call this point P.

In triangle OPC, OC < OP + PC


OB + OC < OB + (OP + PC) = (OB + OP) + PC

But B, O and P make a straight line so replace OB + OP with BP

OB + OC < BP + PC

In triangle ABP, BP < BA + AP


OB + OC < (BA  + AP) + PC = AB + (AP + PC)

But A, P and C make a straight line so replace AP + PC with AC

OB + OC < AB + AC

Brilliant, noemi,  smile

Explain step by step Please.....

How do you get this ---> BO + OC < BP + BC ?
