Re: English language puzzles

Hi;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Re: English language puzzles

WHY MUST SOME PEOPLE MAKE OTHER PEOPLE CLICK ON A HIDE BUTTON JUST TO MAKE THEM READ “I DO NOT KNOW”? THIS IS VERY ANNOYING INDEED! IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THE ANSWER TO A QUESTION, JUST IGNORE IT! DON’T MAKE A HIDE BUTTON TO SAY YOU DON’T KNOW!!

Re: English language puzzles

Hi Nehushtan;

For one thing you should not be reading my answers. That is not a good idea if you want to maintain your sanity.

For another, you have come in at the end of the movie. I have asked ganesh a long while ago when I was the only one answering whether I should answer or omit.

Re: English language puzzles

Hi;

But why does that change anything? It is ganesh's wishes, it lets him know how I am doing.  Whether the questions are too tough or not, or even if I have looked at them.

The hidden text is sort of a private message between him and I. It should not disturb anyone else, that is the purpose of hidden text. I am a little embarrassed that people are seeing how dumb I am but that is part of the learning process.

Re: English language puzzles

Hi;

That is okay, I will ask ganesh if there is some other method of me indicating I looked at the question but could not answer it. I will do that if you agree to continue to participate in thread. I wish to make you happy, do we have a deal?

Re: English language puzzles

Hi ganesh;

I have been asked to come up with another method of posting when I do not know the answer. Instead of using a hide button I will just say no answer. If that is okay with you.

1290) No answer.

This is your thread so please advise as to whether this format is acceptable to you too.
