Yes, and on a completely unrelated topic, I'd like to give a big, warm Monkey Island welcome to our newest member, Fealiks!

Always happens at the wrong time doesn't it?

If the wrong time is never then the right time must be always, meaning there is no wrong time, it is always the right time. If it is always the right time, it can never be the right time as there is nothing to oppose it to, so there is no wrong or right time, therefore I think an average amount.

My former math teacher would so kill you, Joshi, for using infinity in an equation...

it actually equals 1. if you do that whole multiply by 10 thing and then subtract them from each other and whatnot.

i learned that sophomore year and i was like....whooaoaaooaooaoaooooooaoaaaaaa......

Wrong. There is no such mathematical term like 0.999(9).

In "theory" it would equal 3*0.333(3), which equals 3*(1/3) which equals 1.

Even worse. According to Joshi's misled understanding of infinity, infinity=0.
This means he has just created an the runtime error: division by 0!
(TUUM-TUUUMMMM-TUUUUUMMMM!!!!)

On the other hand, and according to my perfect understanding of the infinity issue, im totally fine with this equation. ..


Ooooops, looks like I've just created some kind of paradox im my head. -Poof!-

Why should 0.999(9) equal anything but 0.999(9)?

Yeah, but I was hoping Joshi would get it... Because everyone knows Joshi is quite the mathematician

Okay, at what point, ever did I say infinity = 0? Our entire argument originated from that equation I posted above which simply suggests what is written.

By reading that post, I think we can safely say my Theory decided to go down hill when Zoom first replied after my "theory".

But now i have a new theory, Ray is phychic:

His last post was on a thread he started on these boards which proved categorically that there are no females on this board

He sleep's with your sister, McCoy. Or Neil's. Or any random sister.

No, seriously, right now, he's doing his sister.
