Integrals--Substitution Rule

I copied and pasted this, hence it sounds completely impersonal and robot-like. XKCD also seems to somehow messed up the formating, so here is the original post, with better formating. It's pasted below, as well. http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-help/calculus/95023-integrals-substitution-rule.html ...

Re: What is your favourite book?

Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You by Peter Cameron Basically, it's a modern Catcher in the Rye. I like it more, though. The protagonist discusses the common banalities and platitudes we encounter each day, the seemingly-trivial nature of social interaction, and his personal tragedies, among w...

The Three Inch Golden Lotus, by Feng Jicai. It's about a Chinese woman with bound feet and how it affects her marriage, status, and perception of a changing China. It's actually very funny and captivating, and the sense of humor is unlike any I've really ever experienced. And my favorite book is Th...

Re: Buying sneakers online

I buy sneakers online all the time...however, I don't really get what the dilemma is here?

Re: Was it ever solved?

It's called Xeno's paradox. And while limits show that the arrow should hit in finite time, they don't solve the problem (And Xeno proposed a few other problems, too. It's worth checking on Wikipedia). But, his paradoxes solved by quantum mechanics and relativity. In QM, thinking of an 'instantaneo...
