I saw this great quote on some website...forgot where...

"There are 10 types of people - those who use binary, and those who don't"

I love that quote. I saw it on a t-shirt once. :) I've confused so many people at school with that. Most of them reply like this, "There are two types of people in this world; those who can count and those who can't, STUPID. THAT WASN'T EVEN FUNNY."

Oh, something else funny: Some jock at school was being... jocky... and he heard that I was the math nerd of the school (which I am, 120d), so he's being retarded, and he says, "Hey Phil, what's 2+2?" I just turned around and said, "In what base?" I think that was the most confused look I've ever seen on that kid's face. :-D

Learn out of books. See link, as well as Albert A. Klaf's Calculus Refresher for Technical Men (both published by Dover).

Hey, I was just wondering... if I died, and somehow you guys here found out about it, would you make a news article about me? :-D

"no_one dies in car crash"

Of course, then I wouldn't be around to see the news article about me. Darn.

I'm sick and twisted...

well if the article would only be for you i'd suggest not bothering. we can assure you now that we would so you wouldn't feel bad when you died, but after you died we'd forget it. I mean, of course we would write an article about you!

Hey, I've been saving the HTML of this page almost daily throughout the time we've had this survey, and the file size is really big! It's almost 1.5MB. That's not far from the folder size of C:/Program Files/Internet Explorer

So, whoever was complaining about IE... this page alone is almost as big (and it's saved in the cache)

I wonder how big it will get? :) Maybe we can break a record or something, 120d

BTW, is there a comment counter for surveys?

There is no survey comment counter.

BTW, look at [link]. It's extremely dumb, and probably wire fraud.

"Dan W. Gaddy ... found that PI does not equal 3.1415926 but instead it equals 3.146264"

What... the... heck... 120d

Yeah, that sounds pretty retarded ;-)

If I wrote some kind of joke/comedy column, I'd pay the money to get it, just to see what he has to say. Then I'd make fun of him.

Yep. It's the topper to their whole website-UFO aliens, moon hoax theories, and a value of pi so incredibly wrong that satellites would be in a substantially wrong orbit if it was used in calculations.

3.146264 x 60316 = 189770
3.1415926 x 60316 = 189488
That's a difference of 282 miles per orbit. With one orbit per day, a communications satellite would be so out-of-phase that it would be on the other side of the Earth in (24901/2)/282 = 44 days.

Of course, his proof is self-referential. You can see it, just from the way the page is worded.

What was I saying? Of course it's wire fraud! It's mail fraud, too, because he doesn't accept online orders.

It would have been ironic if 22.7% of people had responded with 'pi = ...' instead of 22.9%. So close...
