It is not what?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: So this is what was happening

I see, you object to the use of that word. I will correct that. It is nonsense.

Hi Agnishom

Ahhh... It was a joke meant for bobbym.

Yoda is a character from the famous Star Wars movie series, which I recommend to you.

No, Yoda is small and green. Bobbym had him as an avatar a while ago. My avatar is a guy called Inuyasha. He is from a manga I am reading.

Re: So this is what was happening

Hi Agnishom;

Post #24 is incorrect. When he came here he was already a very good problem solver. A very smart person. He was being generous when he said I taught him, the truth is we do some math together on this forum.

I think you have me confused with somebody. Is it because of the new avatar?

Confused? Me? No way! I already said some things about your new avatar. You did not read the posts so they are gone forever.

Re: So this is what was happening

I read all your posts. If you ever posred anything 'bout my new avatar, it was not obvious.

Re: So this is what was happening

Sorry, you may believe that but it just ain't so. Also, of course it was not obvious. Brutes are obvious. Intellectuals are just as loutish but not as obvious.
