Here's another one from me... I know is lame, but it's about computers, so... oh well...

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer. When asked to define "great" he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!" He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.

Whoa, that's a great joke! I like that.

Edit:

I went to the doctor and he said, "Rodney, I have some good news and some bad news."

I said, "Doc, I've had a tough day. Just give me the good news."

He said, "OK. They named a disease after you." :naughty:

lol

Edit:

Bob was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was

really pissed.

She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the

driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE !!"

The next morning he got up early and left for work. When his wife woke

up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box

gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway.

Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought

the box back in the house.

She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale.

Bob has been missing since Friday.

I like that one too! That man must of been crazy... :facesjump

Edit:

Yes i did study algebra. I'm doing Degree in Computer Science and Computer Mathematics anyways.

i don't like the fact that u said that formula proves nothing other than 1 x 2 = 2. because it does not say 1x2 = 2

im sorry i shoould have said that it converges to 2.

the formula of sum to infinity of a geometric series is

If |r| <1 then r^n approaches to 0 as n approaches to infinity .

It follows that S(inf) approaches to a/(1-r) as n tends to infinity.

therefore S(inf) of a geometric series is S(inf) = a/(1-r) for |r|<1

Infinite geometric series converges and has the sum S(inf) = a/(1-r) if |r|<1

If you want the formulas to proof, it is as belowExtracted from wikipedia) i hope you understand what those expressions mean unless u want me to explain them

since

Then:

Therefore S(inf) = a/(1-r)

Peace.

Honestly, I'm doing Geometry right now, so I don't understand what all those symbols mean. I'd appreciate it if you would try and explain them to me, unless, if you don't think you could, then that's fine.

But I think that Zen-r stated in plain English what we're trying to argue over in mathematical terms: That since you can't reach infinity, you can't reach 2, and that if it were possible to reach infinity, then you would reach 2.0.

Do you agree with that?

Edit:

Alright, now I've really got to post another joke. I'm racking my brains and I'll post one as soon as I can get another good one!
