Re: Is this cool with you?I am afraid it is too high.
Why do you feel that is posting for nothing? A wrong answer is more valuable than 5 right answers! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #1302 20120304 07:44:36

Re: Is this cool with you?Most problems will be too tough for you and for everybody else too. They are either trivial or nearly impossible. Working on them is good mental exercise. This is more important than the solution. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Is this cool with you?But why are they this hard? Why aren't they like the problems from the start of the thread?

Re: Is this cool with you?There is a new thread called "Bafflers." They will be easier. As a matter of fact, there is one there solved by both phrontister and gAr.

Re: Is this cool with you?Where do you find your problems? I don't mean the personality problems, but mathematical problems.

Re: Is this cool with you?They are mostly made up by me for me. I work on many problems per day. I only get a small number of them. The ones I think are interesting and challenging I post.

Re: Is this cool with you?Ok.

Re: Is this cool with you?Some come from other forums. Some are from books. All are modified to illustrate a principle better. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?What is ' other forums'? What does it mean?

Re: Is this cool with you?There are other forums. I am a member of several of them. Some I just lurk on. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?I still do not understand what other forums are.Are those products of your imagination?

Re: Is this cool with you?I wished they were. Then I could go and get a lobotomy and not remember them anymore. Unfortunately, they do exist and are stocked with nasty moderators who hate anyone named bobbym. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?Xexe, they will gone, and won't exist in the New World of the mighty bobbym.

Re: Is this cool with you?bobbym has been called many things. No one ever called him mighty when comparing him to his competitors. Maybe if he ever gets dropped near a hill of Liliputians the term mighty will then apply. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?No, the mighty bobbym is mighty even now.He has many followers, though he's point like Yoda judging from his former avatar.

Re: Is this cool with you?I have many enemies, even here. On other forums they want me dead. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?So what? You still have phrontister,quittyqat and me. And many others here as well.

Re: Is this cool with you?Phrontister is wary of me. He knows that I have an antiAustralia bomb. He probably has some antivegas bomb. In mathematics, you don't understand things.
