  1. NO! scientific developement is not something that should be left to wonder and decisions of yes vs no. we dont know what research will bring us. some seem irrelevant, others not so much, but if history shows anything, its that no research is useless in the long run. Did we need keplers laws ever really? no, we couldve done it all with newtons laws, but without it, the theory of relativity would be much harder to think of. and without relativity, no technology we rely on today would work at all
  2. not the right thinking. Its bits can be 1, 0 or a superposition of the two. can explain futher if you want. why did we need to research silicon transistors, i mean we barely were starting with electron tubes... Because technology takes time to develop, and not looking forward means you stagnate, which is never good. and literally every discovery in any branch of science will sooner or later be useful somewhere

    1 = .999?

    All of my other proofs also showed that not only it comes reaally close, but that it equals as well.

    1 = .999?

    nono, im not saying it has a last digit at all, thats my point, there is no first or last digit in the decimal notation. hence in decimal one cant write anything accurately without some standards. we all know that 1 in decimal is just how we agreed to write numbers such as 0*01.0* and 0*0.9*.
  6. LukaP

    1 = .999?

    yes but those are the standards i talked about By definition a decimal number is of this shape infinite leading zeros, integer whose value is defined through the base10 system, decimal period, a series of numbers, whose value is again described by base10, that may or may not be finite in lenght, *if finite* infinite trailing zeroes. we can omit the leading and trailing zeroes, and we can move the decimal period around as long as we then somehow note how much it has been moved (done usually with a *10n)

    1 = .999?

    except one could manually look at the molecule of his and a turtles DNA under a SEM, but one can never (actually by definition) write down any number in decimal notation without approximation or some sort of a standard (ommiting the leading and trailing 0s is one of them)
  8. LukaP

    1 = .999?

    same shit, just a different expression, as apart from defining pi, its all simple algebra yes, now i ask you to even with approximation to any degree, (ergo limiting towards infinity) show that 1-0.9* is anything but 0. if you do i will reference you in my paper, as i go pick my PhD and any awards i may get.

    1 = .999?

    i can tell you exactly what 4pi is. its 4 times the ratio of diameter and circumference (or there about not sure if its defined with diameter or radius) of a circle. I can also tell you exactly what 1-0.9999999999 is. its 0.00000000000(reccuring)00001, where 1 is the absolute last digit. but as we know, decimal numbers do not have a last digit in their notation, ergo that is impossible, and you never come to that 1. meaning the solution is actually 0.0000000* which we also shorten into 0
  10. LukaP

    1 = .999?

    no it does not. -.- have you even seen my mathematical, as well as philisophical proof? if you want i can prove it to you with a limit as well. (also if you dont believe me about limits, i suggest you read on them)
  11. LukaP

    1 = .999?

    or e being defined by a limit as well. lim(1+1/x)x = e. its the exact same thing, just a different series/function
  12. LukaP

    1 = .999?

    its just a way of typing it ffs. a decimal notation. we have 3 (actually 4) ways to type an integer in decimal. 0.9999999, 1, 1.000000000 and 1.00000(recurring)0000001. they all hold the same value, its a downside of the decimal notation. it makes sense. and no, the point of limit is not that you never reach it, the point of it is it describes how a function/series behaves for big n. and that is exactly what we care about. what does this do if n rises through the roof. (also, you do type lim(expression) = number, so there)
  13. LukaP

    1 = .999?

    it is. because it goes to infinity. imagine a function of 1/x. its limit is 0. does it reach 0 ever. of course no, not until infinity. but its limit there is 0, ergo its lowest point is 0. this is analagous just that its a series of 1/10n being summed together. the sum never reacher 1, but it limits to 1, so it must equal that at infinity
  14. LukaP

    1 = .999?

    no its not. lets go over it slower 0.9999*10 = 9.9999999 (all of this periodic) simple multiplication, alls good here right? 9.9999-0.9999 ive taken the result from above, and subtracted the original number = 9 this simple subtraction gives us this result, alls good right? = so then as we agree that we have subtracted one of the 10 factors in the original multiplication, we can also say (10-1) or as its more commonly known 9*0.9999 = and as the last two expressions are equal 9*1 ergo 0.9999 = 1
  15. LukaP

    1 = .999?

    well then my homework for you, find a series i described, and calculate its limit as n approaches infinity
  16. LukaP

    1 = .999?

    Umm youre not in high enough math it seems. below i have an algebraic proof of it equaling 1, you could also do an analytical with a series of fractions and its limit towards infinity to prove it
  17. yes the @ is just a keyword for the "interpreter" to know what BB code to use with the next bit of text im already fully there. Darth Pakul i am
  18. bb code also works without the @ sign, example Trik'Stari
  19. giggles and shit? Its all shits and giggles until someone giggles and shits (honestly what bout my deep insights into stuf *cries*)
  20. LukaP

    1 = .999?

    nope. by definition 0.9999 periodic equals 1. here is the proof 0.9999*10 = 9.9999999 (all of this periodic) 9.9999-0.9999 = 9 = 9*0.9999 = 9*1 (per above) ergo 0.9999 = 1
  21. CLASS LEADING. that does not mean it has the best battery life of all phones
  22. every review i saw said 3-4h screen on time, with some to spare at the end of the day. that is rare in a budget smart phone
  23. the camera is shit in low light, battery is class leading actually. OP if you dont mind the camera in low light and the 16GB storage its the best phine in its pricerange (and higher, it will compete with the OP2 due to the SD810 implementation), its perfect
  24. i like you too girl <3 tho @tmclelland455 is bae @virtualTune is my bro @Jogostar is jogurtstar fatass bitch @BonBon Scott is retarded and useless
