Funny story...A guy from my class showed me a puzzle during physics, and wanted me to solve it. It went like this: Move one line, and make a valid mathematical expression. And then he drew something like this. But instead I moved the same line, and created \/  ≠  (6 isn't equal to 1) Of course he rushed in and said I was wrong, because he was expecting something else. The look on his face, when he realized what I had written, will stay in my head forever (I think I should mention that this is a guy who can't take loosing, being outdone, tricked, etc. ) #2 20060507 07:47:56

Re: Funny story...You should have been looking at the road. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20060507 21:31:03

Re: Funny story...Hehe. Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being saught. It always defeats order, because it is better organized.
