As me ole brother says, he ain't been saying much lately.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.****If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.** **A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.**

Wrong grammar!

The administrator has banned him, I think

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

Wrong grammar!

Nope! That is the way a bumpkin would phrase it.

Nope.

Then why is pappym not posting?

I am 94, pappym was in his 30's when he had me. Does that answer your question?

It means that pappym is now 129 ± 5 years old.

What does 'ole' brother mean?

Ole is bumpkin for old, m is bumpkin for my.

It means that pappym is now 129 ± 5 years old.

Can you draw the obvious conclusion?

Do you have the Quadruple for bumpkin Grammar? How many production rules are there in it? What are the terminal variables? Hmm?

Not after I ran that M code.

How very machine like.

Not after I ran that M code.

How odd. When doing math you run to Logic instead of computation and when given a commonsense problem you turn to computation?!

Machine Like? That is what I found in the 'Formal Languages and Automata' book.

Written by a human machine for a machine human.

That book belongs to my aunt. She studied Computer Science some years ago

But what does it have to do with this?

I was wondering if Bumpkin Talk is a formal language and if it can be explained with a dfa or an nfa.

You do not know the M code?

Bumpkin was around way before any of those things.

Bumpkin is not stupidity. Stupidity might end when man is gone as he is currently the only stupid lifeform other than reppies and EBAs.

Well, if you had not imposed the flood limit on pappym, he would have posted twice as much productive verdicts.

In chess it means a speculative or dubious move.
