We can all agree math is important.
I think we can all also agree solving an equation is pretty damn boring.

so like yeah and stuff.

I love doing maths.

Calculus is actually pretty cool.

I don't. Math is fun. It calms me down when I do math. Designing algorithms for programs is even more fun than that.

Gonna have to disagree on that one...Believe it or not, I loved doing math homework. I hated that one year where we got a really lenient math teacher who rarely gave homework, and if he did, it was very short.

I dunno. Back in High School I used to get a kick out of being able to make numbers do whatever I wanted them too. I enjoyed math and physics primarily for the purpose of solving the equations. And when you start to understand it all you see the world a little different.
I saw a car wreck the other day. Guy went off the road and rolled into the ditch. Everyone else I knew saw a horrible scene. I saw all of the beautiful math that went into applying torque to the car, twisting it over and resulting in two rolls before wrapping its self around the tree.
Math is awesome and you use it every day.

I have a strong urge to lock you in my basement and not let you out until you invent a time machine.

Mathematically already done. The ISS is technically a time machine. Since its launch, it's traveled a few milliseconds into the future.
User avatar #30 to #29 - chrisfloyd (02/17/2013) [-]
Indeed. Conversely, anything that moves is technically time traveling by fractions of fractions of nanoseconds.Simply by taking a step foward I have actually time traveled in the slightest way.

But what I'm really trying to say is that I want to **** Pocahontas. ;)

Anything that doesn't move is traveling through time also. At a constant velocity of 1 second/second in the " future" direction.

Although I can't actually think of anything that doesn't move, given that the Earth and the Sun and all known objects in space are basically in perpetual motion.

Well, it has to do with the relation between space and time (Special relativity ring a bell). Gravity distorts time, so as you move away from gravity, the faster time goes on the massive object seems to go relative to you. So if you could travel for 10 years and travel x number of miles away from earth, the amount of time that you've been away from Earth would be significantly more than how much you aged for instance. Theoretically, you could do a 10 year mission and come back 100 years in the future.

Yes quite. I already knew that, buuuuuuuuut I still need a way into the past.
User avatar #36 to #34 - aesguitar ONLINE (02/17/2013) [-]
Hmm, if a lack of gravity means faster relative time, then if you could somehow increase your gravity, then I guess you could theoretically go back into the past. Also, I think Pocahontas died before she was of legal age... I'm cumming with you.
User avatar #37 to #36 - chrisfloyd (02/17/2013) [-]
heh... cumming... that does actually make sense though. Have you heard the theory that if the universe every "crunched" back into its super-dense per-bigbang form that time would actually reverse in the process?

also I don't think those laws existed yet. so we're good!
User avatar #38 to #37 - aesguitar ONLINE (02/17/2013) [-]
Well at those densities and temperatures, the laws of physics breakdown. For instance, when Hydrogen is heated to hyper-extreme temperatures under extreme pressure, it turns into a sort of solid type material. Basically, there so many atoms all trying to move so much that they can't move at all.

I can't agree, I don't think solving an equantion is boring. :)
User avatar #19 to #14 - ericbeagles (02/17/2013) [-]
I wonder why some people find maths fun
#22 to #19 - bigralf (02/17/2013) [-]
well when you solve a problem you feel a sense of accomplishment. when you turn in a quest in an mmo you feel the same sense, headshot, round victory. Same sense different intensity. probably affects people differently
User avatar #23 to #22 - ericbeagles (02/17/2013) [-]
Yeah I guess
#24 to #23 - bigralf (02/17/2013) [-]
just imagine the kid who feels good from solving math and then physics problems grows up to do as a career.
