Re: Brittle math 2: Generalizing is a disease.

No one has solved brittle math 2, there are 2 solutions to brittle math 1.


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

Yay! Brittle math 3 is coming. Now it's time to learn v = d/t...

Huh! I never thought smart roboticists will do that mistake. That is for middle school students. I gave up on making that error two years ago.

Why assume they are roboticists?

Re: Brittle math 2: Generalizing is a disease.

I thought they were equine technicians who'd come to observe the movements of the horse-like robot (post #12) in order to learn a thing or two about equine prosthetics.

They could be orange juice technicians for all we know. Anyway, brainy people make mistakes all the time.
