Re: Mathematics jokesDoesn't that just aggravate your adipose tissue? It does mine. 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. #227 20130704 00:26:38
Re: Mathematics jokesWhy? I think I like it '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 #228 20130704 01:23:04
Re: Mathematics jokesHmmm, it looks nasty. 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. #229 20130704 01:39:05
Re: Mathematics jokesDo you know an expression which you like? '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 #230 20130704 01:41:06
Re: Mathematics jokesThat one is my favorite series. There is so much math wrapped up in it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Mathematics jokesAn engineer thinks that his equations are an approximation to reality. A physicist thinks reality is an approximation to his equations. A mathematician doesn't care. #234 20140124 20:34:07

Re: Mathematics jokesI agree. '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
