In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

That doesn't tell me much, now does it. Your age ranges between his age and a million years.

Re: Small letters after tags

There are many people on this forum that know my exact age. Why? Because I have told them. Some have even seen my alleged picture. I fear that [blank] has also tracked down that information.

He is a very clever guy. I suspect that he works for some government agency that gives him clearance.

Re: Small letters after tags

If it is the story you told me then I must say that at first glance it does seem unconvincing and unbelievable. And as I finally accepted the fact that you are 90, you told me you were 9.
