Re: Future Population (End of the world in 3136?)

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.

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.

Wrong grammar!

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

Nope.

Re: Future Population (End of the world in 3136?)

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

Re: Future Population (End of the world in 3136?)

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

What does 'ole' brother mean?

Re: Future Population (End of the world in 3136?)

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?

Re: Future Population (End of the world in 3136?)

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.

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.

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

Re: Future Population (End of the world in 3136?)

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.
