Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itYear 2009 ( I remember it like it was yesterday): I was sitting behind Alokananda who was sitting with a bunch of her friends. There was some conflict about a pen which I claimed to be mine even though it was Aloka's between all of those who were present there. Aloka was not there for some reason I do not remember. When she returned she saw the conflict and saw someone was asking me, "Prove that this pen is yours". Alokananda told me to tell them that The pen is marked as a gel pen by its manufacturer but she is using a ball point refill inside it.. I did not tell them about it because I was doing the useless argument with those folks not to win the argument but the way she wanted to prove that the pen was mine was nice.
There are a few moments and quotes about her which I always remember crystal clearly. Another example is her Samosa quote. Last edited by Agnishom (20131121 16:54:13) 'And fun?

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itwho is alokananda? friendship is tan 90°. #3 20131121 20:34:38
Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itSo you sit on fences like a monkey. 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. #4 20131121 23:13:29
Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itI mean I am like a monkey not the fence. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itHalf the particles? How does he arrive at that? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itNow that was an agonizer! 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: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itWhat is an agoniser? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls it
This meant that your problems would do this because people would have to struggle hard to get them right. 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. #10 20131122 03:07:49
Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itSo, I had the correct idea of the word in my mind before
I am sorry but why does that give you a lot of pain? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itReading what a physicist thinks is agony. Seeing Carl's fat face and reading his kaboobly doo is super agony. The quote by Newton is nice. 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: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itWho is carl? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itCarl Sagan. He is on the page. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itI thought you liked him a lot? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itHe does not have a very good reputation around here. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itAre you deeply moved by Carl Sagan? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itOh yes, almost to tears. 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: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itnope. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itHe is called a debunker and his job was to go around discrediting sightings of extraterrestrial craft. He was well compensated for his activities.

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itdebunker? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itYep, a guy who does not investigate and says no to everything. 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. #22 20131122 12:37:40
Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itBut then suppose I ask him
Will he say 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 #23 20131122 12:39:27
Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itHe is assigned the job because he is a famous name. He just says no to any case that deals with extraterrestrials.

All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #24 20131122 12:42:02
Re: Agnishom's Agonisers as bobbym calls itWhy is that extra ordinary? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
