    Linux is a cancer...

    Steve Balmer, CEO of Microsoft, recently referred to Linux as a cancer.

    This is incorrect - Linux was released on August 25th, 1991, and is therefore a virgo.

    Francis Bacon was found guilty of corruptly having accepted money in 1621. That was 24 years after having finished his Meditationes Sacrae. He should have known better

    Hey Terr, you know Mr. Escher ?

    And if God is a programmer, he sure forgot to debug his stuff.

    I am already well-aware of the tricks that have been played by the brilliant Mr. Escher...

    But I would point out that they violate no law, since they are 2-dimensional objects which merely trick us into thinking they are a 2-d representation of a perspective of a 3d object.

    And yes, I know what a Komodo Dragon is... but how did that get into the discussion?

    Ah, I just noticed something...
    If X , Y , Z are = angles of a triangle ;
    then X , Y , Z = 60*
    I think I see the logic, but the phrasing is VERY misleading.

    "If X,Y,Z are (equal to EACH OTHER and are) angles of a triangle"

    is not the same as

    "If X,Y,Z (represent, symbolize, are equal to) angles of a triangle."

    Actually there are triangles that can have less that 180* or more than 180* they were developed by gauss and some other guy independantly, I can't remember the second guy. imagine a *striaght* line on the surface of the earth is actually quite curved in 3d space, thus a *straight* triangle in 2d space taken from a 3d impose of a triangle would be greater than 2pi radians. one on the inside of a "saddle" would be less than one.

    Gotta love geometry don't ya?
