PSY versus julianthemath

PSY: I have 1 billion views on YouTube.
Juianthemath: Really?
PSY: Of course. I am very popular indeed.
Julianthemath: Let me see your Gangnam style, then.
PSY: Okay.
Julianthemath: Wow! 999,999,999 views!
PSY: Nope. Now 1 BILLION views.
Julianthemath: Wow!
Okay. What is the square root of 1 billion?
PSY: Don't know.
What could PSY say to julianthemath?

Re: PSY versus julianthemath

Hi;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: PSY versus julianthemath

It is just a question. math really does not have to have a purpose. I like it too but mathematicians insist that it does not  need too.

Hi Agnishom;

I am sure that ShivamS meant no insult and was just saying he did not understand.

Thanks. And I didn't mean that your post was an insult. By the way, I'm really slow at understanding jokes.
