earlier today I saw a baby owl
I was passing by a cone-shaped ant hill when I saw this tiny thing on the grass, just standing there
I halted my movement and we exchanged stares for good ten seconds, then I went on my way
but before I could move too far I looked back at it
it was a rather beautiful image, the baby owl was just standing still with great discipline, gazing into the ant hill, which was at least four times higher

reminded me of Kero

I think SK's link dove into this topic a bit. Or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero. Anyway, here's my attempt at an explanation:

Basically the number zero was invented because it makes it easier to think about math when you have zero. It's possible to do math where you only have 1 2 3 4 etc but then you get stuck with questions like what is 4-4? And this is a question that can come up pretty easily in real life (if I have 4 apples and you steal 4 of them then how many apples do I have?) so coming up with a number called 0 allows me to think more easily about these questions.

It's really the same reason that we invented negative numbers, rational numbers, real numbers, and complex numbers. It's just that the need for the number 0 is a lot more obvious than the need for i or 7/3 or -57
It's also worth mentioning we have invented every single type of number.
Imagine trying to solve every quadratic without zero, it's impossible. So zero becomes a necessity in algerbra. Same applies for fractions and negative numbers.
Eventually they got to equations that still couldn't be solved so that's how imaginary numbers came about.

We can now solve every algerbraic equation so there's no need to invent more numbers.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

My bud got me two replacement sticks for my N64. My falcon has to get used to actually being able to move, but I'm able to do everything I want to do with most every other character. It will take some getting use to, but I'm liking it a lot.

So I went to a smashfest for Melee the other day, and I brought in my 64 on request from a couple people. They implied they weren't too bad, but then when we played I consecutively 4-5 stocked everyone who played me with my Yoshi, and after about 40 minutes everyone went back to playing Melee and the setup was abandoned. :(

I'm in that awkward place where I wreck people who don't really know what they're doing, but I get wrecked by anyone who does! What do? Maybe a practice session with someone nearby or something, since I really hate online lag.

You should have picked characters you're bad with. People aren't going to be really motivated to play 64 if one guy just demolishes everyone with his main. Maybe give tips and help to players who aren't as good and have them play each other.

In a ****ing google spreadsheet how do I write a fraction without this ************ changing it to a date? Like 6/7 being changed to 6/7/2013.

Edit: nevermind I will just write 6 since it's always 7 anyway.

On Google Documents, a ' will also work and doesn't require as much typing.

M2K in his Reddit AMA introduction said:
I play Project M and 64 too, and I currently like Project M a lot more than 64 (because the way I play 64 with Kirby makes the game lame for everybody including myself. I only use Kirby because he's cheap and I don't want to practice tech skill in that game.
...

Thoughts?

Why did you choose to come to smashboards for help and not google? You are so bad at using the internet geez.

eh, people can still invent more numbers. just the uses of these new invented numbers will be more esoteric.

More examples are cardinal numbers, ordinal numbers, hyperreal numbers, surreal numbers (first described in 1974, which is pretty recent in math terms) etc.

rutgers personal statement: tell us about yourself, your goals, why you're interested in pursuing your degree and why here, you know, that sorta thing.

iowa personal statement: why do you want to pursue graduate study? what kind of research do you want to do afterward? what kind of goals do you hold for the future?

syracuse personal statement: WHAT ARE YOUR ACADEMIC INTERESTS? WHY DO YOU WISH TO STUDY FOR THIS DEGREE? WHY SYRACUSE? HOW DO YOU PLAN TO PAY FOR THIS? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO AFTER YOU ACQUIRE THIS DEGREE? WHAT ARE YOUR GENERAL ACADEMIC PLANS? 500 WORDS OR LESS!

brown personal statement: "upload your personal statement here."

First link on google when searching "how to divide numbers in spreadsheet".

Google search: 0.28 seconds
Time from when you posted question to when reply was posted with correct answer: 32 minutes

Again, you are so bad at using the internet. You should be impeached.

Oh yeah it was totally intuitive to ask another question that what I wanted. I didn't want to "divide" a number at all, I wanted it to NOT change what I write. So thanks for your useless answer. Also you're really annoying in everything you say so I'll ignore you, don't bother answering (or do it because I know how hard it is not to answer and I won't read nor answer back).

For a moment there I wanted to read an Aesop fable featuring a fox and a samus. I wonder how that would go.
