    How to deal with a rejection?

    Yes sometimes this is really the case. For instance, the girl in my opening post later got my number from one of her friends...

    How to deal with a rejection?

    Nice. I wonder why I've never thought about that one. It does sound a little cheesy though. And what if she didn't smile?

    How to deal with a rejection?

    Hi all, it's been a long time since I last posted on PF. I think I need some help regarding the following. Thanks in advance for the input. (I hope I'm not being awkward...) Well, I've heard a lot about the general pieces of advice about how to approach girls/women: be confident, be polite ...

    A first course in Calculus by Lang

    The new editions do give epsilon-delta proofs in the appendix, I believe.

    How do i gain intuition to learn and remember physics?

    Though Newton's laws are essential to learn physics, they are not needed in order to understand why centripetal acceleration = v2/r. This is simple kinematics and calculus (and geometry).

    Why are bugs so reckless near danger?

    To me, it sounds more like he enjoys experimenting with the bug's reactions. No need to make him feel guilty about it; there are billions of bugs out there, and he's squashing less than 0.0001% of them. :tongue2::biggrin::rofl:

    What is division?

    If you are happy with your "meaning" of multiplication but not with the one for division, why don't you view division from a multiplication perspective? For example: x/y = k is the same as saying x = ky. That is x/y is that number by which you multiply y in order to get x.

    Is mathematics for me?

    For now, I find elementary number theory, counting, graph theory (introductory), and euclidean geometry extremely appealing, so yeah I guess I might have an inclination for combinatorics. In comparison, I am uncomfortable when dealing with any mathematical object that is too abstract; to...
