  • Hee! Sionnach, I love your last post here.

  • Can't be. B & B must have sent surrogates.

  • *thinks Kostya might just be a b*
    *seriously*

  • Still bored, Pro?

  • I thought Brenneh and Bonnie were, like, so over each other.

    *hoping sionnach is enjoying this one*

  • I would also like to state for the record that Surreal was described by the witness as "non-linear" but when evidence was then presented it was, in fact, a direct response--rather linear considering the context of "non-linear" proofing. I think if Surreal had something like hot dog it would be more non-linear.

    Unless, of course, you thought we would anticipate a non-linear answer; therefore a linear answer might indeed be the perfect decoy of non-linear.

    Kostya, you real name isn't Bonnie, by any chance? Or Brenneh?

  • Well, I can't speak for everyone, Kostya, but I certainly will try to take myself a little more seriously. Thanks for setting us straight. I don't know how we managed to have any fun before you arrived.

  • No one said you were a crock, Kostya, only that your definition was. But then you went ahead and demonstrated that you were hotheaded, inarticulate, unimaginative, and indeed, probably a crock, too. You're certainly welcome to rebut Sionnach's narrow definition of the word (and a lively and interesting discussion would probably ensue, which is what Wordie is all about), but petty name-calling is just juvenile.

  • Could you all take yourselves a little more seriously please???? And yeah, if you go around telling people they are a crock, expect a nasty reply. Jerk.

  • whichbe, *snort*

  • Nice first impression, Kostya.

    February 12, 2009

  • That was, uh, rather unnecessary, Kostya...

    February 12, 2009

  • Kostya, to fully understand the meaning of that, could you retype it with clearer punctuation?

    February 12, 2009

  • oh fuck you douche bag

  • What a crock. The term "non-linear" has an extremely precise definition. Specifically, a mapping f describing a system is nonlinear if it fails to satisfy one or both of the following conditions -

    additivity: f(x+y) = f(x) + f(y)
    homogeneity: f(Ax) = A f(x).

    Nothing surreal about it.

    February 12, 2009

  • Yes, yes I am.

    February 12, 2009

  • Surreal is the very definition of non-linear.
