It may not be so mysterious. Danish scientists recently discovered that if you sit a bucket of fluid on a turntable and spin it rapidly, geometric polygons appear in the centre of the vortex. The faster the spin, the more sides the polygon has. No one noticed this before because no one bothered to look.

No, this thread.   laugh
I don't know if I want to get to 7,500 posts before the end of the 2010's when the nanobots would have gotten to me by then.

This thread certainly has grown quickly.  One minute, you're counting beers on the wall and ringing in 2006 with a push to 100,000... next minute, the thread's all grown and is overweight with its own child threads and all.  *sniffle* Where has the time gone?

Should I have a special box marked "OC.net Anniversaries" on my desk just for the occasion?

Random Postings- the longest thread in forum history probably!

It likely will be, unless we decide to not curtail the next pews/beards/menstruation/Macedonia/calendar/EP-MP thread.

Why not.  At least having a Kleenex is preferable than chain smoking or binge drinking when these milestones appear.   Wink

There are 10 threads with more than 1,000 posts (and one stuck at 999 about the early 2009 decision of the Synod of Antioch).

Of course, I didn't realize that it's likely not the longest-running thread (i.e. earliest in origin to be currently active).  The "What is everyone reading?" has been around for a good & long time.

If SolEX01 has 5,165 posts, how many posts does he need for 5,500 posts.

Let x represent the number of posts SolEX01 needs.

Now, add x to 5,165 to obtain the expression 5,165 + x.

Set the expression equal to 5,500:

5,165 + x = 5,500

To solve for x, the equation has to be balanced.  To do so, subtract 5,165 from each side.

5,165 + x - 5,165 = 5,500 - 5,165

5,165 - 5,165 = 0.  By the zero identity, anything added to 0 remains unchanged.

x + 0 = x

Next, subtract 5,165 from 5,500 to obtain 335.

Therefore, x = 335 and SolEX01 needs 335 posts to obtain the next level.   Wink

Why did you make use of the commutativity property of the identity element in addition? Such an action made your computation unnecessarily specific to a sub-field of algebra and negated the usefulness of the procedure for vectors, matrices, and integration with analysis. Wink

I was actually wondering why he used algebra when simple subtraction would do.  Why ask Steven Hawking to calculate the tip when a high school student will do?

Rock Hall nominees include The Stooges

When I saw the title to this news article, the first thing that came to mind was: why are they inducting the three stooges into the rock and roll (+ Pop and R&B) hall of fame? It's moments like that that makes me still feel young.  Grin

ABBA (don't care for them - they're not a R&R group anyway) gets in and KISS (don't like them at all) doesn't?  Proof positive of comedy's persistence in the world.

5,500 - 5,165 = 335.  Easy enough.

Should be doable with number theory and ring theory...you may be able to use group theory instead of ring theory, leading to a more generalized solution, but I'm not 100% certain, I'd have to look at the problem closer.

We could get rid of algebra altogether and use graph theory, of course, but the real question is whether we could dispense with number theory, the Queen of Mathematics? Perhaps an approach using set theory would work.

What do you think 'laypeople' would find easier? Algebra was never very intuitive for me, maybe the use of number theory and graph theory, minimizing with an epsilon-delta argument from analysis?

We should start a Mathematics thread.  With the intense and frequent contributions of a few people, it would be 1,000+ post material in less that 6 months.

The problem has now become a time dynamic random epsilon-delta argument.   Smiley

I never had problems with Math until I ran into a Graduate level Partial Differential Equations class which ate me alive.  After that, I stuck with 400 Level Linear Algebra classes since I found orthogonal bases a lot easier to process than Poisson's Equation.

I might just pass this thing yet! Smiley
