One that I read is the electronic journal of combinatorics. A few authors may even publish their own papers on their own website in addition to the journals.

Heh good one. Never heard of super factorials before.

2\$ = 2*3
3\$ = 3*4*5
4\$ = 4*5*6*7, etc.

I'm not sure if this is clear enough. For example, could I go googolplexgoogolplex? Use Knuth notation?

 10-29-2009, 03:36 PM #215 starcrazy grinder   Join Date: Nov 2008 Posts: 481 Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread Dont think it needs its own thread so.. I have a desire to be a lawyer or structural engineer and leaning towards Engineer. Is it like too late for someone that is in their 20s to learn it all? Wiki says it takes bachelors and masters to be certified, so Im like in the same boat as that guy from this thread https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/47...fessor-612251/ Although I would like to get a regular job so I can fuel my natural poker ability (I do enjoy challenging people to HU match just for fun). Im always impressed by people who have time for poker and school because you really have to work at it to be a steady winnar and play when the fish are out etc etc. I certainly wouldnt quit school for poker. Or I can just get some alcohol and forget it since things are already in motion. It would be cool to have 2+2 forum battles. Lotta know it alls out there, I like giving the smack down

Huh? Stop strawmanning me. There is no emergent point to your post, only a non-emergent one. You need to work on your reading comprehension.

Seriously, this place has gotten very hostile lately. Used to be if people were going to call you a moron, they'd at least be funny about it. Now it often feels like a competition to see who can be the most rudely dismissive of the other guy's basic intelligence - whether or not such dismissal is warranted.

The general use and abuse of the dismissive style and other examples given above simply shows a lack of imagination of the writer.

Cicero was a wise man; I read a biograhpy on him a few years ago and I have a few of his works, which I read with pleasure.

I have noted this. Unfortunately, I have been extremely busy with work and with other important personal matters which means I have less time to devote to policing the forum. I had hoped that intelligent and honest people would be civil enough to police themselves and thus limit my bashing of heads or flogging of miscreants. Obviously this only works to some extent; as is usual in dealing with the human herd, you are forced to realize only a certain minority are civilized. The rest are unruly cretins or cruel and ignorant people that poison and disrupt, whether by design or ineptitude it hardly matters as the damage is the same. Of course you must allow for free speech and the use of sarcasm and humor and irony etc to give free play to all. But enough of this, this thread is supposed to be for lighthearted fun and meaningless points while in a drunken stupor. This is getting too Serious.

Which biography? After I finish with Caesar I intend to read up on Cicero, could use a recommendation.

This one:http://www.amazon.com/Cicero-Times-R...7813304&sr=1-1

It came out about 7 years ago and is a well researched and well written bio; brings Cicero to life - he is not presented as just some cardboard cutout figure. I highly recommend it.
