    a lot about myself and that some people, who I thought were stupid, are actually much smarter than me! :)

    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:

    How not to get bored when self-studying?

    Hello PF, I hope that I'm not repeating an old thread; I've searched for this thread in here, and could not find any. So, on to my problem then: I've been self-studying from a few math textbooks for a while now. But, the problem is that I quickly get bored while working through the...

    What is division?

    This doesn't work quite smoothly for division by real numbers or fractions in general. It's still a good perspective for natural numbers nevertheless.

    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...

    Is mathematics for me?

    Whoa that's a lot to digest. But anyway, I'll take it one step at a time and at the right time. For now, I'm going to continue with the reading, and I'll keep on exploring more about math. I really appreciated all of the pieces of advice that I got in this thread, and I am relieved that my...

    Is mathematics for me?

    I agree that I should be more patient; maybe it will all make sense once I learn much more math. Thanks PeroK.

    Is mathematics for me?

    @ IGU : I only find programming so and so, and I do not particularly enjoy it. But, thanks for the advice though. @ micromass : Reading up on the history and philosophy of mathematics sounds like exactly what I should be doing. Thanks a lot for this precious advice!

    Is mathematics for me?

    I apologize for the vague title, but I'll attempt to explain better what I mean here. First of all, my background: I've already completed all of my high school math courses including calculus, and I've been considering to pursue math at university/college starting in September. And yes I...

    Girlfriend leaves me for no apparent reason

    I think what Alephzero wanted to say is that even though it might be true that she wasn't seeing anyone else, it certainly doesn't mean that she wasn't thinking about it, or considering it. And that's what maybe you failed to realize (just like you didn't even try to understand what Alephzero...

    Random Thoughts part three

    Suppose the "thief" gets famous for the stolen piece of work, but the original artist gets no credit or no recognition at all. Is that still paying homage to the original artist? :tongue2:

    Is empty set part of every set?

    {} is a subset of every set, so it is a subset of s. Therefore, {} is an element of p(s). However, it is clear that {} is not in set d. Therefore, {} is not an element of the intersection of p(s) and d. Hope that answers your question.
