Re: Zoomable Number LineWell that's very noble of you. Such sacrifice! You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #52 20111215 05:00:45
Re: Zoomable Number Linei would give them an irrational number so they would never find it...or to be sure i would give them an octonion The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #53 20111215 05:08:44
Re: Zoomable Number LineThat is cruel! You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #54 20111215 05:15:01
Re: Zoomable Number Linenot as cruel as bobbym's and yours snail torturing!

Re: Zoomable Number LineI do not torture snails and neither does Bob. 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. #56 20111215 05:23:56
Re: Zoomable Number Linedon't lie to me i saw the whole thing.you with a miniature hammer in your hand,a snail just begging not to be hit,and you slamming it.

Re: Zoomable Number LineI understand. I have only seen a single snail and I was a child. I think I was afraid of it so I know I did not hurt it. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Zoomable Number Line
I happen to know that in Serbia, like in Italy, snails are eaten daily. 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: Zoomable Number LineIf MIF sees what has happened to his thread he might hit something other than a snail on the head with a hammer. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Zoomable Number Line
What! Only one snail in a lifetime. This I find hard to believe. Of course we know that bobbym's age is indeterminate, but we can safely conclude that he is not now a child for he says "was a child", past tense.

Re: Zoomable Number LineJust read the bit about MIF being miffed. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #69 20111215 06:16:42
Re: Zoomable Number LineIt is true I have only seen one snail in my life. Urban people do not see much wildlife. A girl I knew was convinced that an elephant was no larger than a small folding table.

Re: Zoomable Number LineI thought there was lots of wild life in Vegas. Most of what I saw was pretty wild. What about the lions in MGM? You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #71 20111215 07:47:41

Re: Zoomable Number LineHey, I just found this thread and applet. It is really fun!! When I'm in full screen in IE8, and I use my left or right shift key and click it ignores my shift key though and gets more dense. But in small mode it works fine and then I can go fullscreen whenever I get where I want to go. It is an awesome idea, since you can press PrtSc key and then paste it into mspaint.exe I imagine in XP. igloo myrtilles fourmis #74 20111221 15:56:34
