I just understood the meaning of one of my signature lines!!!

hi guys

i found this page on wiki:Argument from ignorance

somewhere in there there are two subtitles called absence of evidence and evidence of absence.i think that this might be connected to the Cowper quote! smile

Hi;

Perhaps you should change your signature?


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: I just understood the meaning of one of my signature lines!!!

I have a few pdf's of the process but they are long winded and boring. My answer would amount to copying and pasting with some clever jokes on the side. How would that help you?

here it is if you're interested:Jensenova nejednakost

Okay, then go ahead. Just make sure you mention where you got it from or else.

Hi Stefy

I misunderstood.  I thought you wanted a new sig because of what you had discovered.  Never mind.  Still interested whether you know the book.

Re: I just understood the meaning of one of my signature lines!!!

Wow, I thought it was bad that it took me 30 seconds to get it when I first read it. But now I feel quite proud of myself. (Once in a lifetime) But you know Stefy, your second line signature always makes me sad. Probably due to my father yelling the same thing at me the other day. Inspirational!

Oh, wait... she said I was hopeless. Meh, same thing basically.
