Rarely is the question asked, what if I divide by zero?

No worries, got it handled.

HomoHabilis: Rarely is the question asked, what if I divide by zero?


something asymptotic mostly. it is undefined like what is the sound of one hand clapping. it is like wondering how many clothes you can't fit in a suitcase. more troubling math questions exist like why is X^0 = 1. it is convenient but it makes no sense.

You'd think he wouldn't fight so hard to have the schools open.

Yeah, but we already knew about trump voters before they started the whole "masks kill you" thing.

Well, the world needs ditch diggers too.

If you consider Graves as a type of ditch, we are gona need a lot of them.

The quicker we get back to normal the quicker we move on from Trump's horrifying handling of this pandemic. That's all he wants.

Ah, but 0^0=1 AND -1, depending on which side it is approached from...

No, the 2016 election has caused a major learning gap.

After seeing the resultant swamp that came of my neighbors trying to dig their own ditch... and considering the thousands of dollars the neighborhood paid to have our ditches re-dug... A lot of people should wish they could qualify as ditch diggers.

Me suffering from learning gap?  That's unpossible!

Caused a major learning gap? As someone who moved to Texas from elsewhere, I can assure you that gap was well in place before the pandemic.

full year round school years to catch up. there problem fixed and kids wont forget everything during the summer

I think you have that backwards.  The learning gap caused that election.
 
2020-07-15 8:44:29 AM  
I would say a major learning gap has caused the pandemic
 
2020-07-15 8:45:50 AM  
Maybe. But video game achievements have gone way up so that's a plus.
 
2020-07-15 8:47:31 AM  
But the question remains.  Is are children dying.

Normal. Lol. Why would we allow our selfishness to spread the flu? We are already conditioned so why end it.

Yeah, you can't have one without the other.

I said it from the beginning this is going to happen.

Man, you think inner city kids had a poor education before?  It's going to be hell.

Still need to keep the schools closed.  Kids are the perfect disease vector.  They don't get sick, they don't show symptoms, and they'll spread it to every family who has a kid in that school.

That's honestly their mentality.  Anyone remember this gem?

Broke-dick skool systems in places like Baltimore, Philadelphia, DC, Detroit, Chicago, NYC, and LA have already farked over the majority of the citizens they "serve" for the past sixty years. The present crisis will just allow them to do it virtually. The consistent feeding of prole children is what will be missed the most.
 
2020-07-15 9:58:43 AM  
so americans are more stupider? sounds about rite.
 
2020-07-15 10:25:03 AM  
We're basically sending an unknown percentage of kids into our schools armed with biological weapons, and depending upon them to keep those weapons holstered with their masks. It'll be interesting to compare the school shooting and COVID body counts at the end of the 20-21 school year.

The only person who can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
The only person who can stop a bad kid with COVID is a good kid with COVID.
Don't worry too much about the backstop in either case. Nothing to see here.

The pandemic has also identified a learning gap...

No that's the current presidency. I can see how you'd confuse that with a plague though, no worries.

Turns out that you can't turn the United States into a Kleptocratic Theocracy without millions of active coronavirus infections.  Who knew.

Thinking this will be hitting every modern school system.
 
2020-07-15 1:29:58 PM  
Does it really matter at this point? The dumbest generation in eons is college educated.

chucknasty: more troubling math questions exist like why is X^0 = 1. it is convenient but it makes no sense.


Probably the simplest compelling point is to consider the identity:

xaxb= xa+b

If you let b=0, you get:

xax0= xa

Divide both sides by xa and you get x0 = 1
