### Re: What were your dreams last night?

In the category of strange dreams, I think I have most of you beat. In my dream I was asleep in an unfamiliar room (hotel, perhaps?) when I received a phone call from the fire department. They politely informed me that I was on fire, and I politely disagreed. We then decided to meet up in court anot...

### Re: How to feel classy

"A friend on Steam passed this along...." Puts the creditation off you at least, as you're not the jerk.. your friend is. Also fuck you, Firefox. Creditation is totally a word I just made up! I don't like the idea of "faults". Is it my fault for not asking for the source? Or is ...

### Re: Has anyone ever called you a genius?

I think what separates a child from an adult has a part in how one reacts to being called a genius by his/her peers. A child would probably politely deny the statement, but inwardly agree with it. An adult, however, would both deny the statement and disagree with it. It would be amusing if the true ...

### Using motion parallax to estimate focal length for lens

A double-concave lens. Can someone explain this to me conceptually? (By "estimate", I mean a concise calculation assuming I have measurement devices.)

### Re: What is this (math) code?

Not sure what you mean "translate" it into LaTeX, as it already *is* LaTeX... I wasn't being very rigorous with my vocabulary choice. Well excuse me then. (I had a strong hunch that it was LaTeX, but in the event that it wasn't since I'm not familiar with it, I said "translate"....

### Re: Solve for a(t) in this equation

Well, the challenge (so far as it's relevant to me specifically) isn't to understand the equation. It's to solve for a(t) assuming that t

_{0}is a constant and cis the speed of light, and that everything else is a variable. But it seems it isn't solvable. I must've missed something.- Mon Feb 21, 2011 10:30 pm UTC

### Solve for a(t) in this equation

[math]d_E=\int_{t_0}^\infty \frac{c}{a(t)}dt\[/math]

I'm lost. (This, by the way, is an equation for more advanced physics students to know. I'm not one of them. I'm just trying to solve for a(t) with no regard to physics, just math.)

### Re: What is this (math) code?

What. Ewww. Really? It's that ugly? I probably copied something down wrong... derp. Edit. No, that isn't right. I copied it down correctly to the last letter, i.e., highlight, copy, paste. This is weird. Edit. Again. Okay, I realize the ...'s are missing pieces of information, but can you clarify if...

### What is this (math) code?

I know this is something math-related, and it's a set of equations. I just don't know this specific code/format/syntax/whatever. \begin{displaymath} \mbox{RD}= \min(\sqrt{\mbox{RD}_{old}^2 + c^2t}, \; 350) \end{displaymath} \begin{eqnarray*} r' &=& r + \frac{q}{1/\mbox{RD}^2 + 1/d^2} \sum_{j...

### Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Hi guys. I read xkcd so I may as well create an account on the accompanying forum. I probably won't add much, though, since I'm not bright. But if that's okay with everyone else, I'll just sit right here. And before I'm kicked out, I'd like to first complain about the fact that my online calculus gr...
