Re: Probability Problems

My Grandparents were in the teaching profession too.

Please put back Bumpkin as your title

Re: Probability Problems

It would not be wise.


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.

Re: Probability Problems

Is it because MIF would become a bumpkin too?

Re: Probability Problems

No, it would mean that newcomers would not know who I am. That could cause problems.

Re: Probability Problems

True enough, but without my title people would be confused. What is a bumpkin they would say.

Hmm, you want the newbies to be darn afraid of you?

Re: Probability Problems

How would it look if GIBBY came in here and saw that?

Re: Probability Problems

How about renaming the real member wheel something different?

Re: Probability Problems

Nope.

Something stylish like MathNerd, GeniusIsBack, Member of Euler's League or something like that

But what is Euler's League?

Re: Probability Problems

Of course, I am not one.

I have a pretty good idea. We can rename the Real Member wheel to just 'Real'

Kaboobly doo!

If Euler were around today he would make mince meat out of the guys we have. Just imagine if he had Mathematica! We would be 1000 years more advanced!

Re: Probability Problems

Could you change Real Member to Real?

Re: Probability Problems

I think I could but modifications to the forum are and should be done by MIF. It is his forum.
