  1. Like a lightenting rod, I was just curious.
  2. Can a site like this be sued for slander?
  3. Thanks to timo for the headsup on wowies in the floor. This is what we get from GR, and old houses.
  4. Welcome to HELL. Save your ticket stub; I signed it.
  5. I just wondered about your wife.
  6. Phi for All may be interested in this.
  7. I do recall the vision of the Earth on the Turtle, so hey, whatever you care to put into your soup, cheers!!!¡¡¡
  8. I am fascinated to see the basic principles at work. I aspire to greater facility in 4-space. I should get my act together in 2-space, LOL.
  9. Have good new year times, Imaginary and real. Life's a complex dream. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedRow your boat steady; Gently down the swirling stream. Life is but a dream
  10. fifteen minutes of fame to DJBruce, HUZZAH, HUZZAH.. I am not here interested in the trigonometric stuff because I consider that derivative, later, understanding. I use similarity of triangles, as well as area of any triangle. First we see this as 1/2 ab, but then with the construction, it is also 1/2 c h. Further sober inspection tomorrow will hoppfuly confirm my inspcetions, and our h's. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedWow, it seems you use only the principles of similar triangles, and not the areas like I did. Good one. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedDJBruce achieved a tighter solution than I did, so I think he deserves two FIFTEEN MINUTESES OF FAME.One does not need to appeal to the triangle area formula, if you write the two similarity relations as he does. Congrats! . . To hell with my paperette. Cheers!
  11. COOL!!! I'd forgotten those. Isn't this sort of a Fermat's theorem? [sTERNLY, This is a bit off-topic because I don't really care about just these cases, but dammit I am the OP and am having fun.} OK now I see that the truth is the opposite, right, that there are always further tripletts? How cool. Thank you, my oh brother. When we are willing to feel stupid, it is possible we might learn something. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedI composed a paperette called "Monty Pythagorus" and maybe scalbers can get it into my cache in a day or two. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedSo hurry on in with your answers, kids, to carve out your fifteen minutes of fame. HINT: The line I draw is inside the triangle. I need only 'carpenters' tools'. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedI guess I am alone in my stooopidity.
  12. If bag squeals when poked, with a stick; probably is, a pig in a poke. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedHaiku fantasies Need have no relationships To real events. Moi? Thanks, Phi, for sharing Mysteries of line spacing So I look cool. Doy.
  13. I added one line to the construction. I think I then use basically two principles to write a trigonometric algebraic proof. I do not use laws of sines and cosines, per se. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedI have only started reading Penrose's monster book, The Road to Reality. He mentions Pythagorus in deep considerations of epistemology, how we know anything in mathematics in this case. I realized the problem made me feel stooopid for a couple of hours. I respect all such "simple exercises", especially when it is clear there is something to learn. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedMaybe I use the word "trigonometry" wrongly, maybe I mean to say geometric algebraic proof. These are all the things I am sorting out in my own understanding. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts merged Isn't this an amazing quirk of numbers? I think so, and don't I recall hearing there are no other such integer squares?
  14. I mean what geometric principles do you need to prove this?
  15. Yup, but prove this from a few geometric ideas.
  16. Whoa, please educate me. . .
  17. Does this ancestor worship involve soup???¿¿¿ I mean lately I have been feeling like a stranger in a strange land. GROK AND CHERISH.
  18. Smart answer I had not thought of! We are talking planar geometry.
  19. What elements of carpenters' logic do you need to demonstrate the Pythogorean relation of any right triangle, that: [math]a^2+b^2=c^2[/math]?
  20. The San Francisco Chronicle newspaper had a cartoonist, Farley, and one of his great 'toons was "Hilda the gorilla has returned from her winter stay in Louisiana and is looking glorious. Later in the afternoon she was seen flinging pooh at her cohabitants...." This was all a great takedown of the SOCIETY PAGE. . ."Have yourself a very ****** Chistmas." Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedOn a theoretic note, look for papers by Wuming and by Xuegang, if you care to check out mathematics of unification. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedJohnB, call the captain a'shore, i want to go home. . . Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergediNow, I have tried to talk with you as an intelligent equal. I give up. LET'S SING ALONG, FOLKS, WITH APOLOGIES TO LINDA RONSTADT: "You're so lame, you probably think this post is about you, ...."
  21. Nice 'tude! [bIGTEETH] Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedI own one intellectual apology. Digging up my Google Earth, Jilin China is in the far Northeast, north of North Korea (!) .
  22. What do you celebrate, Sisyphus?
  23. I find this loving Christian spirit so moving. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedStevie Wonder dot it right, and I paraphrase: 'Love will always be in need of love today. Don't delay, sent yours in right away!' My Dad died two years ago at the righteous age of 93. He was Lutheran minister. Incredibly, we agreed on 95% of what is real, and he never crammed anything down my throat. Funny, right in the middle of writing this post an email comes from my Aunt, now over 90 also, in the midWest, wishing me a happy Christmas. I answered: "It is time to honor also the solstice. We must honor the Earth even as we honor our own bodies. They are one, and one with the Spirit which infuses all."
