I is on the 4 key on a phone keypad. So dial *4 after or 4* before?
Isn't * complex conjugation?

If the original number is imaginary with a positive imaginary component then taking the complex conjugation and multiplying by i will make it real and positive, but multiplying it with the complex conjugate of i will work as well.

i*##\cdot##[number] and [number]*##\cdot##i are both fine.

My IQ cannot be measured on the real number line. I'm just too complex!!

Does that mean your irrational?
or imaginary?

Since the Q in IQ stands for quotient, I think all IQs are rational by definition. But he could be completely imaginary.

IQ = Imaginary Quotient? Psh! Get real!

I am real. You said you weren't.

(Now we have an argument. Can anyone think how to get a modulus into this?)

All wrong. It is an element of a ##Q-##algebra. It is generated by
$$
\{\,IQ , ABQ,BBQ,Q\#,Q1,Q2,Q3,Q4,QB,QED,QLD,QM,QFT,QSO,QPR\,\}
$$

It's what you wait in when your Lasik doctor has three patients ahead of you.

Not for a mathematician.

Experimental physicist: I understand ##x\gg 1##, but what does ##x\rightarrow\infty## mean?
Mathematical physicist: I understand ##x\rightarrow\infty##, but what does ##x\gg 1## mean?
Practical theoretical physicist: I understand both, but what's the difference?

I don't know about @Drakkith , but my number of friends [itex]f[/itex] can be written as [itex]f = a + bi[/itex], where [itex]a[/itex] is my number of real friends and [itex]b[/itex] my number of imaginary friends. As long as [itex]a > b[/itex], I consider the situation acceptable. I sometimes get into an argument with my friends. It's usually resolved as [itex]arctan (b/a)[/itex].

Your arguments are so limited.

Ah yes, the classic Up Goer Five! Remeber, if parts start to fall off in the wrong order, you will also not be going to space today.
 
Carbohydrates: We are infested with hydroxides.
Biologists: OH!

What was the star rating for the book about stars?
I heard its ratings were stellar.

Caution, if you put it back on the shelf, it changes places with other books.
