infinityexplain (02/23/2015) [] That's not what a curve is. A curve a selction of points that fits a criteria. In order to estimate the curve's slope, you take a secant that is as close to the tangent as possible, and you find the slope of that. What this is supposed to show is that there's an infinite amount of lines But each one of them is so incredibly small that they have no length. It's a paradox. How can there be an infinite amount of lines but have no length? #46 
swimmingprodigy (02/23/2015) [] I didnt write out my full thought process. I meant to say that that's the definition of a derivative and the whole secant tangent thing on a curve like you just explained. Your paradox seems very straightforward though. You have a limited amount of space (lets say 1 unit like you said) and you want to fit as many lines as possible. Since you have a limited space which you can only fit the lines in, you can do one big line, or 2 lines twice as small so they fit, or 3 lines 3 times as small so they fit, etc etc. You keep going until eventually you have an infinite amount of lines which are infinitely small. Boom

swimmingprodigy (02/23/2015) [] Ok I reread your post much more carefully and I still don't get the big deal. Ya, as n approaches infinity you have an infinite amount of straight lines with a length infinitesimally small. This is the basic premise of what a curve is, they teach you this in the first week of calculus. #44

sketchysketchist (02/23/2015) [] The earlier episodes where fun nonsense filled stories with hilarious shit kids would do. The new stuff is funny but has something importantish to say about things, but aren't as timeless unless the issue itself is timeless. So both are good, just for different reasons. #29 
swimmingprodigy (02/23/2015) [] I guess. Some of the newer episodes are incredibly clever, but I guess I just dont like when the writers inject their own political views into the show
