Hi Nehushtan

Welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the welcome.

Now dont let my avatar fool you. Im actually a very gentle creature. I just like to hide beneath a scary mask.

I believe you have a member called **scientia**, who has been here for some time now. Im her partner in real life. We are united by our passion for science, the arts, and Harry Potter.

Hi;

Yes, I know her for a long time.

Some mathematics too I would think.

Are only babies frightened? Children are not afraid. Adults are afraid. They live in constant fear. Do people hate them? Will the economy collapse? Will I lose my job? Am I losing my hair, my youth, my vigor? How will I pay for my sons college education? Is that cough going to go away? All adult fears.

But this is supposed to be about Nehushtan not me.

Thats why I changed my avatar to scare more people!

If you really want to scare people use a math problem as an avatar.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

That comment was for Nehushtan. It was a joke. Incidentally, that username is Hebrew, it was name of the brass serpent that was made by Moses if I remember. Thusly, the teddy bear does not fit.

I'd listen to that advice, actually. It's working for me.
