Re: FavoriteFavorite here. 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. #3 20130803 21:41:22
Re: FavoriteThere are many similar cases. I think the most well known is colo(u)r. There is also flavo(u)r of those I can remember. 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 #4 20130803 21:42:53

Re: FavoriteThat one was mentioned, I think.

Re: FavoriteI don't think administratour is a valid word.
