Re: Interesting Conversation

Who is that guy claiming he learned it from me?


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.

Uh oh. Quoting me is like walking through a minefield with blindfolds on. Just should not be done.

Re: Interesting Conversation

Are you implying a negative impact of the consistency hypothesis?

Yes, due to the nature of the funniness of that remark.

Re: Interesting Conversation

Our Prince is a really strong, agile guy.  He can hang by his fingertips
indefinitely.  He has a vertical jump that about as high as he himself
is, and can swing from ropes and poles with the grace of an acrobat. 

Is the Prince a bumpkin?

Re: Interesting Conversation

A prince is rarely if ever a bumpkin. Do they not come from royal bloodlines? A bumpkin is a peasant.

It is democratic to judge people based on their birth?

Re: Interesting Conversation

It is a bad thing to do. When our prince entered the kingdom, people thought he was a beggar. It is not right to judge people based upon their appearance, either.

Re: Interesting Conversation

What prince are you talking about.

I am afraid whether it is right or not we do tend to judge people first by what we see.

Re: Interesting Conversation

Hi;

I have discovered a truly marvelous way to create a conversation. Do I have the permission to post a result of that machinery?

Re: Interesting Conversation

The conversation is between a bot and (probably) a human.

The bot is the machinery
