GD now contains the most inane thread I have ever seen here. Our friend Kozmik, for reasons unknown, is making it blatantly clear that he does not have a good 7th graders understanding of math. Ordinarily I’d pity him for this, since his job prospects are limited (though he’d be a good budget planner for the current administration) but he doesn’t respond to the many courteous and helpful corrections to his errors.
So, for all posters in this thread who have restrained themselves, this one’s for you.
Kozmik, you’re a fucking imbecile. Shut up, learn what a variable is, and don’t act like no one else could possible understand irrational numbers. My dog does better math than you.
Well, there are worse fates than being pitted. Legend has it that the first guy who discovered that the hypotenuse of an isosceles right triangle was incomensurable with its legs was drowned by his fellow Pythagoreans, who had based their religion on the theory that any number could be expressed as the ratio of two whole numbers.
Note to self: do not found religion based on unproven mathematical hypotheses.
