### Re: What do you think?

Hi;

Okay, take all the time you need but do your studying first.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Nope, you are incorrect in stating I understand you. I do not. I recommend you finish your studying otherwise you will end up a dullard like me.

But that would mean you do understand me. You are contradictory to yourself. Paradox has been discovered. MIB will take care of it!

Hi bobbym

"Men In Black". What were you referring to?

I thought you were referring to the "Math Is Boring" guys.

Hi bobbym

In that group are the ignorant bastards that never knew and don't want to know about the wonderful joys of math.

### Re: What do you think?

There is more joy in Mudville then there is in math. Math is a gruelling, mood altering endeavor.

So you don't experience joy while doing math? I remember that in a thread of gAr's you said you enjoyed a problem.

### Re: What do you think?

You do not think it is incredible? You are hard to please. Just imagine them toiling away for hours in the dark of night. 4 wednesdays in a row! Raising my rates by 4 dollars a month. Shutting down my service for several hours each time. Isn't that a miracle in itself? You expect an increase in quality?
