How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?I do not know but someone might '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 #2 20131117 13:00:34
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?I would assume quite a lot but there are more than enough worldwide! 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 20131117 13:12:30
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?Answer: None. All the bobbyms will wait for Wolfram to create a better CAS '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: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?Nope, M is like a 1911 Colt 45. Some people love it and some people say it is overkill, but everyone has to agree that it will knock your socks off. 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 20131117 13:27:29
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?Can you change a lightbulb with it? Yes? '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 #6 20131117 13:29:37
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?You do not need to! An M user's mind is so bright, so sharp, so piercing, so innovative that it will cast aside the darkness. 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 20131117 13:35:38
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?Okay, good answer '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 20131117 13:42:21
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?Perhaps a better question is, how many bobbyms does it take to change a bobbym? 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 20131117 22:05:03
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?None. He changes himself all the time. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #10 20131118 01:40:33
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?I am forced to disagree, he has remained the same for a very long 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. #11 20131118 16:15:33
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?How long? '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 #12 20131118 16:23:00
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?For about 81 years. 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 20131118 23:04:38
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?Hmm, you have changed in a lot in all these years '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 #14 20131119 00:23:04
Re: How many bobbyms does it take to change a lightbulb?Yes, I grew bigger. 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.
