Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHopefully he will one day feel that way about it, when he is successful. Right now it is way too personal for that. And since many of his experiences are similar to my own I would not give my consent. 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. #12502 20131102 01:10:49
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWe could remove all the names and replace them with words from the girl about whom we were talking in the other thread. '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 #12503 20131102 01:13:21
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMany people do write their life story. If he chooses I would like to write the introduction. But first we must see if my advice works... 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. #12504 20131102 18:26:22
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhats your advice? '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 #12505 20131102 20:29:39
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI have been giving it. 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. #12506 20131102 21:14:41
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI've been talking a little bit with the Japanese girl I mentioned in post #12475. Going to try to arrange a meetup  I have an excuse, at least (that I have to catch up on the lecture I missed). Would give me a chance to be alone with her. #12507 20131102 21:27:49
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI missed that one because you posted right after that with the message about H. 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. #12508 20131102 21:32:56
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBut won't the difference seem bigger because it is 18 to 21 as opposed to, say, 25 to 28? #12509 20131102 21:37:20
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHas she been talking to you? 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. #12510 20131102 21:41:54
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYep, we've been sending short messages back and forth a few times. I wanted to get her number but some other guy swivelled his chair around and started talking to her, making me lose the opportunity. Luckily I found her email  thankfully, she doesn't seem to have found that creepy/stalkerish, and there have been few negative signs so far. #12511 20131102 21:42:59
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThe McDonald's coupons? What are those? 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. #12512 20131102 21:46:35
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaJust some coupons I cut out from the local newspaper to use at McDonald's. £1.99 for a cheap meal ($3.17), when it's usually twice the price. I have two of them. (The obvious caveat being the possibility of her being a vegetarian...) #12513 20131102 21:57:35
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMention that you have two coupons like that and ask her if she would like to go. How you say it is everything with girls and with people in general. If you make things sound like an adventure rather than a cheap meal you are okay. Lot's of girls are not vegans. 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. #12514 20131103 02:18:40
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHi zeta, '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 #12515 20131108 09:43:11
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula4 days later, no response from her  I presume she's not interested in meeting with me at all. I think that uses up the last of them... I will have to meet someone new, I guess. #12516 20131108 11:24:26
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMaybe she was busy or something. Shelve it for now and put it out of your mind. If she responds that is good if not, that is okay too. 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. #12517 20131108 11:48:51
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaShe was responding fairly quickly before  I assume that she just can't be bothered. It's been a disastrous start so far, with the girls being even less responsive than F. Perhaps girls at university are a step up from highschool level ones... #12518 20131108 12:12:38
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaNext time make sure you get something going a little bit quicker. 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. #12519 20131108 12:33:26
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, I will have to ask in person next time. #12520 20131108 12:55:31
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAnd at the earliest time. 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. #12521 20131108 23:12:20
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIf I can work up the confidence to do that, that is... #12522 20131109 01:12:04
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIf you do not and you delay then it will cut down on your chances. 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. #12523 20131109 09:58:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat's certainly been the case so far. My delaying has cost me, multiple times. Against adriana you could argue, for example. #12524 20131109 10:06:14
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI do not like it but I am the only person on earth with that viewpoint. 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. #12525 20131111 00:05:09
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI had to create one to join some group to download some stuff for my maths course.
