Look at this!Hi; 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. #2 20131210 12:07:29
Re: Look at this!It's likely due to the fact that when you google "is 0 a rational number?", the first creditable result is from MIF. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.  Neumann #3 20131210 12:41:06
Re: Look at this!Hm, it's nice that the guy had enough decency to credit MIF.

Re: Look at this!Both of you are correct! 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 20131210 22:22:01

Re: Look at this!
Well, it's either green or not green, so I'd say 50%.

Re: Look at this!That was my answer too. I fully expected to be hailed as a genius. Instead she said I was a cretin. I told her I do not feel like a cretin but she said they never do.

Re: Look at this!That's too bad. I hope she would have her own letter (F, maybe?).

Re: Look at this!Unfortunately for mankind they really exist and hold key positions. But they have many millions that are just like them. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Look at this!Not really. I'm not leaving just because of some idiots.
