The "Stupid" boyA young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #2 20130618 14:07:19
Re: The "Stupid" boyOr should it be called the stupid barber? 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. #3 20130618 14:50:29
Re: The "Stupid" boyThe "Stupid" Boy = The Stupid Barber 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: The "Stupid" boyCan you tell me where I can find this barber? 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: The "Stupid" boyI think he is in the state of Bihar. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: The "Stupid" boyYou still have barbers there? Here they are called stylist so they can charge 5 times as much. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: The "Stupid" boyWe have stylists here too. But we (atleast I) do not go for them. My last haircut was done by a barber for Rupees 20. 'And fun?

Re: The "Stupid" boyIt looks good but you still need a shave. 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: The "Stupid" boyReally? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: The "Stupid" boyI watched and read. Got a pair of scissors for cutting and a good brush and comb. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: The "Stupid" boy.In Vietnam they charge around 2USD per good haircut. Charge for children is half, and they charge hairwashing separately. Shaving is free bonus if asked for. #14 20130618 17:46:50
Re: The "Stupid" boyThat is a good price. last one I paid for was 7 USD and it was a long, long time ago. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: The "Stupid" boyIt is a way different condition. I live in the part of the suburbs than is in transition. I live in administrative Hanoi, which includes several countryside and mountainous area. I live in Ha Dong, an urban district, but it used to be capital for a separate province, and even now it's still not considered a 'central' area by businessmen. But they plan to be, and the whole district is full of contruction sites, new urban communities and new roads. Luckily the economic crisis and the freeze of the real estate market slowed the growth. #16 20130618 19:08:11
Re: The "Stupid" boyYou prefer the slower growth? 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. #18 20130618 19:51:01
Re: The "Stupid" boyHopefully, we all will get it. 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. #19 20130618 22:19:13
Re: The "Stupid" boyI remember this joke from a movie called "Delhi 6".

Re: The "Stupid" boyNo. This joke has been there for years, with the variation about the American president who, while was a child, was asked by people to choose between a nickel and a dime. A dime worth twice but it's smaller than a nickel. The president constantly chose the nickel, and when one traveller asks him why, he said he was investing for the long term. #21 20130618 23:37:10

Oh. I didn't know that. I got it randomly on facebook. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: The "Stupid" boyHave you watched Ashiqui 2? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: The "Stupid" boy
I liked it because the story showed the fight among people,which needs to be stopped. There are 10 kinds of people in the world,people who understand binary and people who don't.
