What the hell? :)

Now we all know the the sqrt of -1 is illogical because its not NON (not a number (it\'s a concept)). So the probability of god existing (as an entity not a concept) is greater than the sqrt of -1 ex...Click Here | By james.vince

Now suppose you are aware that there is only one duck in the world, and you have just found an animal that quacks. Then, by golly, you have found the duck!" I quoted that from a very nice book called A Transition to Abstract Mathematics by Randall B. Maddox.

 0 Karma i demand real LaTeX ( 3 replies ) the latex implementation on shuzak is partial at best, and misrepresentative at worst... it's not jawad's fault, it's a built in encoder if i understand correctly. the point is that it doesn't listen to the same commands that latex does, which makes it very confusing for any users that are used to real latex (esp. tetex). i think it would be great to have an actual latex interface, so that you could type latex into a post and it would render it correctly. i also have n...Click Here | By jared.nance
