Re: A very nice "joke"! ! !
I figured that is what you meant but as usual when you try to read my mind you are going to make mistakes. 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. #27 20121113 12:40:06

But is mind reading possible outside fiction and fantasy? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: A very nice "joke"! ! !That is the reason I first came. Uston was a great genius but a very flaky character. He was attracted by the nightlife in Vegas and I was much attracted to it.

Re: A very nice "joke"! ! !Luckily, I did not! But I did go to work for a large company in Manhattan and that is the one of the reasons for leaving that place.
Hah! How could you know it? I have never told anyone some of that. Are you an enemy agent? Or worse, a friendly one? Working for the Terrans to locate me? In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: A very nice "joke"! ! !That is one boring story! Who is that meatball? Next he will be crying over the fact that he was born in a ghetto and never had a chance because society held him back.
