    Is there a suspected crackpot somewhere, then it's time to play bingo!!
    Check the crackpot post if something in the below table occurs and then mark the corresponding square. The first to form a row, a column or all four corners wins!

    I find it odd that you guys actively make fun of and call people crackpots yet all hell breaks loose when you call someone ignorant.

    My favorite "new theories" that come through here are the ones that are explained through colorful but incomprehensible pictures and diagrams. A picture is worth a thousand words- and sometimes a whole bunch of equations, too.

    I think I almost completed the corners. :smile:

    Mod is nazi... check
    3 exclamation marks... check
    Signature with 3 theories that are not explained... check
    The time spent on those theories is not mentioned yet...

    Errr... Pengwuino, how much time did you spend thinking up your signature? o:)

    I'm no crackpot, but I checked each square just to make sure. It turns out that I am 20% of a crackpot in 4 different ways.

    Isn't Einstien spelled wrong in 2,2?
     
  15. Aug 6, 2011 #14
    No, the card is right. It is spelled Einstein.

    That's the point :wink: The card would be better if it is spelled Einstien :biggrin:

    No it wouldn't. A. Einstien really was wrong and everyone did laugh at him. His theory of phlogiston powered anti-photons would have been universally rejected if only it were more widely known.

    hahaha the "be open minded" thing happens *all the time*! It usually goes something like "you have been taught to conform only to the western way of thinking! open your mind!!"

    Ignorance is okay. Claiming you're right contrary to mainstream science and breaking forum rules is not.

    Stop oppressing me!! IM THE NEXT FEYNMEN!!

    Yes, it's funny that people call us open minded when they're the ones entirely closed minded to that idea that they could be wrong or that we demand some actual math to back up what they're saying.

    Oh and Einstein was a patent clerk, ergo, said crackpot who works at Starbucks and has a 10th grade education is the next Einstein.

    I don't get (5.4). Is it some math crackpot thing like the guy who invented base 12 to solve the world hunger problem caused by the inherent difficulty of dividing wealth in base 10.:surprised
