Re: "RPS" Discussion

This commic was very very funny. Even more funny then an Oregon Trail reference!

I especially liked how there was mustard on that weiner. Ha ha Ha!

True story: this one time I accidentally set my watch to reverse polack notation and it made my sister grow a mustashe.

Re: "Oregon" Discussion

Yes I played a lot of Oregon Trail in the early 90's.

Yes, I loved the game and have fond memories of it.



No, this comic is not funny. Not even a little bit. "HAY GUYZ DO YOU REMEMBER ORGON TRAIL! HAHAH DISENTERY amirite?"

Worse than Wednesday's.

Re: "Sheeple" Discussion

Mankind has more to gain in willingly acting for the good of the community whenever it is reasonable to do so (emphasis: reasonable) than in jumping to either end of the spectrum (philosophical communism v. objectivism). The word "willingly" is the key here. If you really meant that, then...

Re: Needing a new calculator... any advice?

I majored in math at a quality state university, and I only used my calc for one class... Linear Algebra. Back then, it was only to check any homework problems involving matrices--I certainly couldn't use a calc on the tests. Besides, once you get past Calculus, DiffEq, and Linear Algebra, numbers j...

Re: "Fandom" Discussion

btw? Constitution states that CONGRESS shall have the authority to coin money, not private citizens nor the states. So, to call the Liberty Dollar tender is outright illegal. I thought xkcd readers were more logical than this. It's this sort of complete ignorance w.r.t. the American government that...

Re: Is the geometry of higher dimensions considered euclidean?

No need to wonder about the fourth dimension... three-dimensional space is already non-euclidean.

With three dimensions, the parallel postulate does not hold.


Maybe I'm misunderstanding the last sentence in the OP?

Re: Spanish help

You couldn't do a "spanish mathematical dictionary" search in Google? http://nw.pima.edu/dmeeks/spandict/ ... I just checked out the other items on the simple google search you suggested, and none of them appear to have the entries sorted in spanish. Perhaps then you should Google for &qu...
