Re: Do you have what it takes to be an engineer in the Air Force?That is just what we need, smelly soldiers. What hideous odor do you suggest? The smell of old sneakers with old socks tucked into them? 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 20130627 01:10:38
Re: Do you have what it takes to be an engineer in the Air Force?Coconut. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #28 20130627 01:11:44
Re: Do you have what it takes to be an engineer in the Air Force?Hmmmm, there are many who delight in the odor of the coconut. 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. #29 20130627 01:22:24

Re: Do you have what it takes to be an engineer in the Air Force?Maybe because soldiers smelling like large coconuts would not instill much fear in the enemy.

Re: Do you have what it takes to be an engineer in the Air Force?
But there is always a first time 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #32 20130627 01:38:49
Re: Do you have what it takes to be an engineer in the Air Force?The ants would probably eat the entire army. 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. #33 20131106 06:19:02
Re: Do you have what it takes to be an engineer in the Air Force?I called again today and they said I am still too old, I will try again next year... 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.
