In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

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.

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.

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?

For about 81 years.

I did not wear shoes 92 years ago. I wore little slippers.
