Other Chinese guy! :o
You’re not a mod.
You may throw around swag, but I have class.
Get on my level.
SOMEONE ELSE WHO HAS SEEN PARANOIA AGENT!
I guess now when I read it, it just seems like, “here are 4 different ways to solve it,” despite two of them are discouraged and/or wrong, and only two of them having legitimacy.
Why did you change all the text on the 48÷2(9+3) = ? entry?
The infos i had were correct and did point out some solutions as being clearly incorrect, deprecated, or discouraged.
I thought it was relevant as commentary to the problem :(
I completely forgot that existed
not sure where that came from :o
I haven’t listened to the new Gorillaz songs since Plastic Beach
oh god my username is a lie.
in all seriousness though, I really liked Demon Days because it really did have a virtual band feel. The rest seemed like it was Damon Albarn songs below a virtual band front to me ¯\(-_o)/¯
If Damon Albarn could pull that off again, then I’d be reobsessed with Gorillaz again :<
Also, psych shows that as you get to adulthood, you tend to be stuck liking the music you liked as a teen. Maybe I’m getting too old for Gorillaz’s new stuff u_u
sorry for sudden seriousness and long post
I’M DOING OKAY
SORRY FOR NOT RESPONDING
I HAD OATMEAL FOR THE FIRST TIME TODAY
IT TASTED LIKE OATS
BUT IT WAS SOMEWHAT NOT BAD I GUESS I DUNNO
I MISSED YOU
It’s from an anime called Working!!
It’s pretty funny.
Sorry for not responding :<
Cantor is a badass. I’ve always felt the same way about Godel, and that his ideas are seriously underrated. Unintuitive, brilliant, perceptive, and ballsy :D
Unfortunately, I’m not very good at crosswords. I don’t have a smooth enough broad set of knowledge on everything, just random scatter points where I have vaguely good knowledge. But if the British style crosswords are the way you describe, maybe I’d fare better there?
Also, surprised you didn’t call me out on BS here.
It ended up working for the wrong reasons.
… I’ve never taken a statistics class.
Also, never asked, but what’s your mathematics specialty? :o
You looked at my entries? o///o
They’re remnants of a young high schooler not knowing what they’re doing
Thanks though, and thanks again. Glad to see that there are many people who are interested in the historical/foreign entries too, and not on the latest popular fad :)
Yea, I agree.
I love math because it’s the only thing that’s well defined in our lives. (Nearly) all the time, you know when you’re right or not. :)
I suppose I have the modern version of GAMES magazine, which would be project euler, a series of math puzzles that you solve with programming (and brute force stops working around problem 25).
Nevertheless, I sent you the article because it provides some interesting commentary in addition to the answer, such as the applicability of the hall marriage theorem, and also if and how we can generalize the method to different types of cards. Like if we vary how many cards we show, how many cards are in the deck, how many suits there are, etc. Clearly the standard deck is really elegant (as you pointed out, it’s like it was made for the trick to work), but perhaps there are some more inelegant ways for different decks? I found it interesting.
Also, yea, I understand the grammar thing, but didn’t you formerly correct people in the forums? :o
Maybe I forgot u_u
But yea, no, good grammar on entries is really important, and I’m a stickler for good grammar in formal settings too >_>
goddamn, i suck.
Whatever, i had a grammatical error in the message.
You and I both know what’s wrong with it :o
oh and grammar nazi,
“the* problem,” not “to problem.”
I did not forget about you.
I just got really lazy and never responded to you.
I use KYM so rarely that I don’t even remember my password.
Finding out my password takes effort :T
The Math thread is long dead, but I thought I’d link you to this article. It’s where the guy who presented to problem from me got it, and the exact same example for the 5 cards is used.
Ha, yea, I mainly got bored with all my friends posting less, as well as me feeling that the direction of the website was not great. Or as PimpAbra pointed out…
I suppose if you were to understand “my hold,” I would be to DrPepperFan, as Tomberry is to RandomMan. I wrote lots of entries and was awesome :D but got bored.
And yes, I’m an undergrad at University of Illinois. We have cornfields and soybeans, and our mascot was removed for being racially insensitive :T
Also, thanks, it took me a while to figure out how to make a gif from videos on the internet
If you’re curious, the character is Poplar from Working!, and the gif comes from the awesome mashup, COOLISH MASHUP
Anyway, nice to meet you i guess :o
