Another Republican gets eaten by his own.  The party is going to need to do away with open primaries and start hand picking their candidates, like in the good ol' days.

Pat Roberts is getting a primary challenge for being too liberal? The guy must think Mussolini and Pinochet were filthy communists.

We all have relatives like that.

FTFA: The Roberts campaign released a statement last night touting the high ratings the senator has received from conservative groups like Heritage Action, Americans for Prosperity and the National Rifle Association.

But the Senate Conservatives Fund, which has targeted Republicans it views as insufficiently conservative, signaled last month that Roberts will need to watch his right flank.


So what exactly *is* "righter" than that? Do I want to know?

So the guy is batshait crazy enough to write for the Moonie Times but might not be batshait crazy enough for conservative organizations? Wow!

Yes they think that.  Somehow thanks to Goldberg Tea Partiers believe Fascism and Communism are the same thing.

Wow Subby. Honestly, I don't see this as "amusing"

FTA:
"Most of you know that President Barack Obama and I are cousins," Wolf said Like I've said before, you cannot choose your family but you can choose to rise up and stop your family from destroying America."

Aside from the fact that Tea Party people don't really want an America (they want a Failed State and NO govt)--Thanksgivings for this guy must be awful, unless of course Subby thinks this a normal family dynamic?

Soon they will have to start personally driving around the poor parts of town knocking food out of hungry children's hands just to show how right wing they are.

/or maybe hire a bunch of illegal immigrants to do it for them

What's this problem with dividing by zero anyway? Anything divided by zero is infinity. Why is that so difficult to comprehend?

The only reason it's not allowed is because the reverse would prove "problematic", so why not just say that multiplication by zero is not allowed rather than shutting down dividing by zero?

I'm not too worried. It shouldn't take much for Obama to "rise up and stop" this moron from destroying America.

It's almost as if he enjoys the fame of being distantly related as long as he can use that fame for personal gain. Once Kansans find out that somebody in the family 'went behind the wood shed', this guy is toast. I am glad to see the GOP reaching out by offering a fine African-American candidate like Wolf.

As much as I love unfettered geekery (and pedantry), you sound like a blanket wetter than the shame- puddles a still-drunk John Boehner wakes up to every morning. I suggest a new fun occupation, maybe open a bar and grill, you know, learn to talk to people.

So I guess the question is: What would you do for Klom Dark bar?

No, division by zero is not infinity, division by zero is undefined. It's not "problematic", it's a direct contradiction.

If x / 0 = infinity, then infinity * 0 = x. Clearly an absurd result.

oops, that should be multiplication by infinity is not allowed.

I think it's some kind of conspiracy to make us brainwashed into being unable to do math of the type that would lead to realizing "oh, duh, free unlimited zero point energy is a basic function of time/space" and then the oil companies would be obsolete.

If you think about it logically, multiplication by zero makes perfect sense while divison by zero doesn't.

Zero, seven times still equals zero because no matter how many "times" you have nothing, you still have nothing.

However, a problem occurs when you divide by zero. Seven in one part is 7; in other words it is a whole seven. Seven in zero parts = ?; in other words, there is not a way we can quantify that concept using arthmetic. If an object is an integer, then it must have an absolute value, which is defined by its distance from "nothing." You cannot logically divide something into nothing parts because it is not an integer, it is a concept from which integers derive their value.

Saying x / 0 = undefined is a cheap way to solve the problem with our mathematical system. That anything divided by nothing is infinity is inherently true, even if the reverse does not make sense.

The true question is why IS the reverse incomprehensible? Just remember the obvious: There is no spoon

I'm not trying to solve any problems; I'm pointing out that, by the laws of mathematics, your assertion implies that infinity times zero equals something other than zero. Do you have any sort of similar logical proof to support your assertion, other than claiming it's "inherently true"?

Since someone else used 7 as an example, lets go with 7:

Dig a hole that is 7 cubic meters. Now dump a handful of nothing in that hole. How many handfuls of nothingness does it take to fill that hole? Infinity (or Endless Loop) handfuls. Ergo, you can fit infinite quantities of nothing into 7...

You can fit infinite quantities of nothing into any number, which is why it's undefined.

Also, anecdote > laws of mathematics and algebra. Lol.

Math is not a religion and should not be treated as such. Question everything. It's only a scientific theory, and parts will be disproved and improved as time goes by... Math seems to always be true, but our system of expressing mathematical concepts has some mistakes in it, mostly very elusive.

Obama's grandmother was his mother's cousin, meaning Obama and Wolf are second cousins once removed. He adds that their mothers were childhood friends in Wichita.

Summercat: Or infinity to the power of infinity?


There are multiple degrees of infiinity. The lowest of the size of the set of natual numbers (also the size of the set of intigers and rational numbers) 2^ that Infinity is the next degree of infinity which is the size of the set of Real numbers. So Infinity ^ Infinfity = the next degree of Infinity. (studied pure Math in University, only reason I do not have a degree is my school would not give me 2 B.Sc.'s)

It is a scene from the movie 'White men can't jump'. Here is there little script of it...

Rosie - How much do you love me?

Woody - I love you infinity.

Rosie - That's not enough.

Woody - Infinity's the biggest number there is.

Rosie - It's not.

Woody - What's bigger?

Rosie - Infinity plus two.

Woody - I love you infinity plus two.

Rosie - Billy. you're so stupid! You should have said infinity plus infinity.

Woody - I love you Infinity plus infinity.

Rosie - There's a bigger number than that.

Woody - I give up.

No one said math is a religion; in fact, you're the one asking for something akin to religious belief, since you're demanding that people accept something as "inherently true" without any proof. It's not my fault you don't understand the foundational concepts of algebra and are thus unprepared to apply them yourself; perhaps you should study a bit more.
