Re: Nehushtan

Yikes! I am glad I have my light saber. That is one scary avatar.


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

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Nehushtan

Thanks for the welcome. smile

Now don’t let my avatar fool you. I’m actually a very gentle creature. I just like to hide beneath a scary mask. big_smile

Hi;

Yes, I know her for a long time.

Some mathematics too I would think.

Re: Nehushtan

Do you like my new avatar? I’m no longer a fierce-looking snake but a cute little teddy bear. big_smile

Re: Nehushtan

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.

That’s why I changed my avatar – to scare more people!

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

Re: Nehushtan

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 think a 1 1/2 year old is a little young for the internet.
