Yesterday i didn´t sleep well in the night just by think how offensive i was for you and for all the runners that i consider mediocre and average runners according the olympic statuts. That upsets me a quite a lot. Then wake up and in a portuguese newspaper i read the news of a contest.
In a mathematics contest the question is
number 1 answers 2+2=4
number 2 answers 2+2=22
number 3 answers 2+2=4756.342671
number 4 answers 2+2= E=Mc2
number 5 that´s an advanced multivariable calculus expert said 2+2= the result of the operation that´s offensive. The figures they have emotions.
Of course that the jury experts they considers number 5 the one who wins that contest. They number 5 is the new Einstein. And the jury said that to consider a figure as - positive, negative, offensive, good, mediocre, an hard effort, bad, poor, low value - all that adjectives are deep inside a number, more than any quantification try.
Ufff...I was wrong, Sergey he is right.
Gee, Antonio, I nearly missed your sarcasm (not).
I would have been with dropping the topic and continuing on, but your insistence on prolonging the argument with petty insult merits pity.
Please cease once and for all.
