Topic ClosedIf I am not very much mistaken, then the links to the closed topics appeared to be grey earlier. '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?'

Re: Topic ClosedWhy do you enjoy reading closed threads? Have you read the 5 or so closed 1 = 0.999.... threads? I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.  Neumann #3 20130917 23:18:37
Re: Topic ClosedNo. I enjoy reading the ones with controversies and fights. '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 #4 20130917 23:43:21
Re: Topic ClosedI do too, but the fighters have left the forum. I would love to close more threads. 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. #5 20130918 01:39:22
Re: Topic ClosedWhy did you have to delete them? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Topic ClosedThey were particularly ugly. It is not good for the members to see squabbling. This is supposed to be a pleasant place. Also sometimes the combatants removed 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.

Re: Topic ClosedThey could occasionally see them. Besides it reveals how childish/revengeful people can be '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 #8 20130918 01:58:31
Re: Topic ClosedThat is true but what would anyone gain in seeing someone at their worst? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Topic ClosedIt's fun. I have read se7en's threads and GIB's threads which are quite fun to read. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: Topic ClosedHmmm, they were not fun for me to read or respond to, I can tell you that. 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. #11 20130918 02:04:09
Re: Topic ClosedI would expect a staff member to say that. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: Topic ClosedHe still comes in every now and then to see if he can sneak in. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Topic ClosedWhy can he not? I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: Topic ClosedBecause he was barred at least 10 times before he chose the name GiB. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Topic ClosedCan he not use another IP? I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: Topic ClosedYes, he has tried that at least 15 times after being barred as GiB. He spends a lot of time trying to get passed the defenses. It is time wasted. 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.

Re: Topic ClosedWhen was the last time he came on? And how did you know it was him? I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: Topic ClosedHe does lurk here so I do not wish to smarten him up on how he is being detected. Let's just say he has no chance. 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. #19 20130918 02:19:14
Re: Topic Closed
Whose? '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 #20 20130918 02:19:53
Re: Topic ClosedHis of course. He should use his time better by improving his math. 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. #21 20130918 02:27:51
Re: Topic ClosedDepends on how you define better '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 #22 20130918 02:29:09
Re: Topic ClosedI think I would define it as he should learn some before he begins to make up his own. 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. #23 20130918 02:34:50
Re: Topic Closedbut he's already a Genius '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 #24 20130918 02:38:44
Re: Topic ClosedThat is his problem. He is a self proclaimed genius. 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. #25 20130918 02:42:28
Re: Topic Closedself proclaimed? Do you refuse to call him a genius? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
