Merry christmasif you know what i mean Last edited by Agnishom (20131031 17:55:13) 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Merry christmasAnd a Happy New 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. #3 20131031 23:35:00
Re: Merry christmasto you too! 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Merry christmasAre we jabbering away? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Merry christmasEver read Jabberwocky? 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. #7 20131101 01:14:49
Re: Merry christmasI read but I forgot. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Merry christmasThe same thing. 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. #9 20131101 01:41:24

Re: Merry christmas
To be clearer, I would have to know what you meant exactly. 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 20131101 01:46:05
Re: Merry christmasIt means that (8^1)*3 + (8^0)*1 = (10^1)*2 + (10^0)*5 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Merry christmasHmmm, that is a sufficiently bizarre idea to make everyone misunderstand you. Wunderbar! I predict you will be a great mathematician. 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. #13 20131101 02:18:40
Re: Merry christmasI had thought that it was a joke along the lines that the shops already have Christmas things etc etc... #14 20131101 02:33:28
Re: Merry christmas
I would love a puzzle but I'm not sure what ester is. Maybe the weekend of the good friday? o.O
What is everyone understanding? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Merry christmasYou are right. I can not speak for everyone. 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: Merry christmasI was hoping when I wrote that that the two lengths would be near to being equal, but they are not that close in fact: #17 20131101 02:49:57
Re: Merry christmasOn what day or days this year would that have been an awkward puzzle? (ie half way between two Easter Sundays in the UK.) Last edited by SteveB (20131101 02:50:34) #18 20131101 08:59:50
Re: Merry christmasI am getting 9th and 10th of October 2013 for the midpoint. (ie: midnight after the 9th October) Last edited by SteveB (20131101 18:47:22) #19 20131102 00:36:42
Re: Merry christmasThe only man who will attempt this puzzle can be Phrontister... 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Merry christmasIt might be best to think of it purely in GMT converting the defined start time into GMT start time for the 2013 Easter. Last edited by SteveB (20131104 07:50:58)
