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 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.

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

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

Hi;

Yes, I know her for a long time.

We are united by our passion for science, the arts, and Harry Potter.

Some mathematics too I would think.

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