Re: Interesting Conversation

Experimentation is nice but observation is fundamental.


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: Interesting Conversation

Sometimes another person is doing the experiment for you. Then you only have to sit back and watch.

Re: Interesting Conversation

I might be too young, bumpkinny, ignorant, stupid, careless or emotional to know how to conduct a good experiment

Re: Interesting Conversation

What is the whole point of the site then? Is it a bot-testing playground?

There have been many cases of stalking on those type sites. Hackers, spammers, humans and reppies and their pals.

That is a choice that only you can make for you. Here there are good neighborhoods and bad ones. If someone asks me whether he should go walking through the bad neighborhood at night I just stare at him...
