^-^, haha...that's good then...
It's the curse we 'scientists' have to live with...doing all the important things whilst everyone else gets all the money...^-^(Controversial)...
True, only its also thats the sientists steals my ideas!
I come up with many "good" ideas long ago when we was studying stars at school, and when i told my teacher about them she said that the sientists are already working on doing this.
It feels like i should been born 20-50 years ago when my ideas wasn't something other people have come up with already.
Just think about your ideas a bit more...get more advanced and then you'll come up with even better ideas that no-one has thought of before...
There's a poster in the Maths department here advertising research and it reads as follows:
"See what everyone else has seen before, think what no-one has ever thought before"
I like that, it's quite inspiring...
That was what i did after it, i came up with an idea how to fix the problem and how to get it working, and ofcouse the sientists is working on that too...
Well, problem with creating something new is, once you do it, everyone dismisses it as something that was "bound to happen".
Thats true, i have many times been dismissed with my ideas and teoris. The funny thing is that so long all my teoris and ideas has been some what correct. XD
I came up with a cool idea in Linear Algebra last year, it was quite an interesting bit of Maths...but it's so simple I'm sure it's been done...also I couldn't prove it...
I came up with the same general situation for a perpetual motion device.
It's so annoying, it was fun watching the answer come out the same every time...I even did it for a 30x30 matrix...
In the maths department last year, my supervisor was president of the Maths Society and there's this guy who I shall name PBIG(Proof By Induction Guy, it's what I call him) who is possibly the most annoying person ever...and he drives everyone mad...
Anyway, he was trying to prove everything by induction(Fermat's Last Theorem included), proof by induction being where you prove a statement is true for n=1 and then assume it's true up to n=k then use that to prove it's true for n=k+1, from that you can deduce it's true for all n.
And he came up to Goldbach's conjecture which states that every even number can be written as the sum of two primes, and when he came to the induction step(assuming n=k bit) he basically assumed Goldbach's conjecture and that for the primes that sum to an even number, one must be a prime double(ie. the primes have a difference of 2, eg. 17, 19) and the number in the sum must be smaller than the other prime.
Now the first counterexample to this is 38 = 31+7...and at the pub they continued to find counterexamples...and eventually they went home...and whilst drunk, my supervisor's friend(if you watched G103 when I posted it, the main character in that) saw that there was a pattern in these counterexamples and that all counterexamples to PBIG's conjecture(the prime double sum stuff) is of the form 38+6n, where n is a whole positive number.
This escalated and my supervisor was working with someone in the Maths Department to write algorithms to see whether or not it held, and they managed to get it so that they showed that that was true for the first 10 billion numbers of that form...of course they modified it slightly and it sort of linked Goldbach's conjecture with the Twin Primes conjecture(There are an infinite number of twin primes)...
It was all very interesting but I think it came to naught at the end because the guy who'd agreed to help had the mickey taken out of him for working with undergraduates...and things just tailed off...I don't know what happened...
But during the entire thing PBIG was a right t**t about it...he contributed nothing to it but a conjecture that was false and he wanted recognition for that...he drove my supervisor up the wall...
I have a big bag of crabs here...
Crabs! i love crabs! They are funny! XD Give me one!!
Also this Group is kinda "doomed" our leader has left the animesuki and it is only you, me and Otseis that is online here.
Yeah maybe if someone hadn't been such a dick and kept up the Math conversation, the leader wouldn't have left. But oh well... I hold no grudges.
