Re: Earth

Hi MIF;

Really nice animation there!


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Earth

Think about this, if Earth were a bag of 100 M&M's:

97 pieces would be extremely salty and not fit for you to eat,
2 pieces are edible, but they are stuck in the bag where you can't get them,
there is only 1 piece of candy left in the bag that you can eat.

MIF is surely very witty. big_smile

Because the speeds are constant and never change

Nope. They are almost constant.

A wonderful page though

Re: Earth

Earth may not be based on god or goddess,but it's hindi and bangla name(prithibi) is based on a goddess.


There are 10 kinds of people in the world,people who understand binary and people who don't.
