Re: Math Pick-up Lines

He never mentioned aleph-null, he says 10^10 has no meaning.

No, he said 10^10 has no meaning to him

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

He certainly was not joking. We can choose to agree with him or not. But since either him or us is smarter we are risking the S effect.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

That is immaterial.

Do you want everyone to accept that 10^10 is meaningless?

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

It does seem to make sense to me and since I am convinced that Jean is bombastically smarter I like the 9 to 1 odds the S article states.

That is not a correct idea.

1. many smart people make mistakes. E.g, Einstein added the cosmological constant.
2. just because someone is very smart in some field does not imply he is smart in every field. e.g, you are smart in computation but not in understanding fine arts

Einy was just doing what modern scientists do all the time.

There you are definitely 100% wrong.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

What then is the secret to my success. Do not laugh, I have far exceeded my intellect. How did I do it?

1) I have relatives in high places that just gave me jobs I did not deserve.

2) I have relatives that belong to a secret, reppie controlled organization that have protected me.

3) I was born lucky.

4) By using the principles of EM and by working harder than anyone else.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

Hmmm, to correctly assess yourself is the first skill of combat.

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

And i do believe you missed the point entirely. Which of the 4 is the correct answer?

Correct! My teachers were Wincor, Feynman, Venkatachala, Acton, Tucker, Petrosian, pappym, grandpappyd, and a few more. What did they teach me?
