Re: Bafflers?I know that. But interpreting it that way gave me the chance to say something funny. 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. #527 20120521 07:15:39
Re: Bafflers?Yes,you never miss those chances. 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 #528 20120521 07:18:53
Re: Bafflers?Righto! Correct a mundo. Young people have no sense of humor.

Re: Bafflers?I can't believe you said that! 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 #530 20120521 07:24:16
Re: Bafflers?I did not say it, she did! 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. #531 20120521 07:30:38

Re: Bafflers?Yes, people do not develope a sense of humor until they hit about 35. 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. #533 20120521 07:53:58
Re: Bafflers?That was the worst insult you could've told me. 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 #534 20120521 08:03:23
Re: Bafflers?Nope, that is not an insult. If I wanted to insult anyone I would call them a weedy illbreeding miscreant! 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. #535 20120521 08:31:37
Re: Bafflers?It is an insult to me.

Re: Bafflers?What is? 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. #537 20120521 18:33:08
Re: Bafflers?"Young people have no sense of humour" is an insult to me. 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 #538 20120521 19:33:38
Re: Bafflers?Oh, okay I am sorry if it offended you. 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. #539 20120521 19:39:14
Re: Bafflers?It's okay. 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 #540 20120521 19:40:52
Re: Bafflers?No but the statement is kind of a generalization that is probably not correct to say. 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. #541 20120521 19:54:34
Re: Bafflers?That is what I thought. 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 #542 20120521 20:20:37
Re: Bafflers?But that does not mean it is not true. 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. #543 20120521 20:40:34
Re: Bafflers?I was talking about you not taking my statement seriously, like I intended it to be. 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 #544 20120521 20:42:57
Re: Bafflers?So, you wish me to take everything you say seriously or not seriously. 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. #545 20120521 20:48:51
Re: Bafflers?No, no, I am not talking generally, but for that certain post in which I said that what you said is an insult to me. That one should not be taken seriously. 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 #546 20120521 20:56:51

Re: Bafflers?I will try to remember that. 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. #548 20120521 21:04:38
Re: Bafflers?I think that could work, but I don't know how long I could keep it up.

Re: Bafflers?Until a slow learner like me has got the message. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #550 20120521 22:10:27
Re: Bafflers?It wasn't a question,but a statement. 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
