Is this supposed to be funny?
Now that is sad. 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. #2 20120203 01:45:40
Re: Is this supposed to be funny?Awesome professor! "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #3 20120203 01:48:45
Re: Is this supposed to be funny?Awesome, I was thinking the same thing. I only wish we had 10,000 just like him... We have 20,000. 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. #4 20120203 01:54:08
Re: Is this supposed to be funny?Or maybe even more!

Re: Is this supposed to be funny?Yes, all of them live here and run everything. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this supposed to be funny?Are you saying that the professor set them up with Sibebius backwards to see if someone would take the hook? or am i missing something. igloo myrtilles fourmis #7 20120204 05:09:18
Re: Is this supposed to be funny?Possibly, but there is another interpretation to this. 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.
