Well why not, this thread has never seen good posts any way.
I should probably have posted it in harry's thread to get more attention.

p.s.: I have collected some other relevant links posted in asterisk over the time, but since apparently there is nothing to discuss about them, I will just dump them here for reference of any interested people:

Hah, yeah, it's either say nothing, say something off topic, or dispute its accuracy or promote some form of conspiracy theory. I was going to say the music in the first one was cheesier than a cheeseball dipped in cheez whiz and subsequently coated in tiny cheeseballs but decided it would be asinine. Then again the second youtube link you posted had music that made it even cheesier than that. Like cheeseballs orbiting the aforementioned cheeseball conglomeration, perhaps.

But to stay on the link-spam topic, here is everything wikipedia knows about the same day I posted this message on:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_2

And, thankfully someone at wikipedia FINALLY gained some sense, as the 1=0 article now forwards to here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invalid_proof

Yes, there are people who believe that 1=0 because they are inept and think you can use infinitely repeating decimals as equivalents to fractions.

Funny, 1=0 has no history whatsoever.

On the other hand, 0.999 still remains by itself.

Yeah, I was thinking this morning at work that I screwed that up, the article I hate is 1=.999... which I guess they changed it to just .999... I refuse to acknowledge that .999... even exists

No, they don't exist. Only fractions do. :P It's like trying to prove something with a thousand decimals of pi when you really should have just used the number pi to begin with.

Nope...I think somebody got there before us and they're decorating as they go. So as we move into the freshly decorated and sparkly parts we think it's all natural and new. I Wonder what size brushes they use?

Truly humbling....We are very very very very insignificant.....but I've always known that somewhere, somehow WE have our place in all of it!
Each of us is so very important in the great scheme of things. I definitely get the feeling that all the lumps of rock and gas jostling together out there are desperately trying to say hello! It's just a matter of time.
You make contact with one then WOW....they all want to chat!
It's just a matter of time. We may be tiny but we are giants because of our brains and computers.
Come on 22Hz.....give us something we can relate to! :idea: :shock: :D
