I have a hairless guinea pig, he's super cute and his name is wilber. The only thing is his balls are freaking huge and there's no hair to cover them! It's kinda gross but otherwise he's cute.

hippos look like shaved guinea pigs

Why are you showing us a picture of a baby hippo to show the resemblance then?
#105 to #2 - scouts (04/30/2013) [-]
so, you're saying if we cover a hippo in fur...
It'll look like a giant guinea pig?




how startling

Is anyone else confused by the completely impossible reflection in the second to last panel?
User avatar #66 to #27 - psykobear (04/30/2013) [-]
Wow, I didn't even think of that.
User avatar #67 to #66 - psykobear (04/30/2013) [-]
The one in the second panel makes no sense either.
User avatar #74 to #67 - cosmohill (04/30/2013) [-]
I'm amazed I was the first (Or so I think) to mention it. I thought that's what the internet was best at? I should say I DO like the comic though.

Mathematically speaking it can never be done completely.
#43 to #31 - allytiger (04/30/2013) [-]
It can but only if he goes an infinite amount of times
#60 to #31 - Rascal (04/30/2013) [-]
actually it can if the series converges

he did say it was going to take forever

Lim n->infinity 1/n ... the limit approaches Zero. Go to college before you want to start with the "mathematically speaking" crap.

User avatar #65 to #41 - psykobear (04/30/2013) [-]
The limit and the actuality are two totally different things.
Also, approaches zero, NEVER equals zero.
Go to college majoring in mathematics before you start talking crap.

How did you manage to miss that in the comic? It literally says it is going to take forever.

You're not taking into account the fact that the barber must remove entire hairs from the guinea pig's body, not fractions.

Eventually a single hair will be left, and in accordance with the conventions for rounding numbers it will be removed entirely, leaving the rodent entirely non-hirsute.
#82 to #52 - Rascal (04/30/2013) [-]
But what happens if the begins cutting the last hair by half and the by it's half and so on

By the time he reached the length of a single atom of hair, the other hairs from the pig's body should have grown at least 1 atom tall

Wow okay, now you're just splitting hairs.

"I'm now shaving this young mans head, adding hair, this young mans who's troubles are with gangs, money, sex and violence. This young man who demanded a fro instead of a buzz cut. This young man who just ran over 2 people and shot a hooker with a military shotgun... I.. am Morgan Freeman, the barber, the story teller"

Think you gotta get to a certain level by gaining green thumbs first, I believe that's why anyway.

Maybe you comment level was reset?I saw you commented a picture in march.Also i'm pretty sure recently the level required for posting pics was increased

A lot of people are saying that it will take forever. This is incorrect.
Some mention indefinite integrals. This is too difficult.

<<< It in fact only requires a summation and a limit.
Since this is the sum of everything from half a haircut on down (as described), it will take just as long as a regular haircut.

This is known as Zeno's Paradox, and has been expressed in several different ways, but it all boils down to these equations.

* Note that this doesn't include time like waiting in line, or the guinea pig looking in the mirror or other things. Mathematicians are douchebags like that. Same with physicists. It would also cost an infinite amount...

This dude is a average student :O
#100 to #85 - Rascal (04/30/2013) [-]
you are saying that it will be as long as regular haircut because you excluded most of times, such as waiting in line and some stuffs and you claimed that it would cost an infinite amount, so if you included these times, it should take forever since guinea pig has to walk outside and some stuffs infinite time.

i don't see your point...
User avatar #154 to #100 - therealtjthemedic (04/30/2013) [-]
what are you even trying to say
User avatar #115 to #85 - markertemp (04/30/2013) [-]
Under Zeno's paradox, if he keeps getting half his hair cut, he will never get it all removed. He'll get infinitely close, but never completely.

You're never actually reaching 1 with your limit there, but rather converging towards 1. The limit of the sums is 1, but the sum never actually is.

Since you're never cutting off all of what's left, but only half, you'll never reach 100% removal, because, in layman's terms, zero is not half of a non-zero quantity.
