To split a hair ... I own my house ... "Mister" is a minor title. and there is definitely a deed for my house which effectively makes me a deeded minor titled land holder... so you're OK with me owning "ordinance" ?

That's great until the bellhop eats a guest ...

I wish i had mod point ... +10

I saw what you did there ... good one.

For most practical purposes you can think of division (1/x) as "chopping up" the numerator into x number of pieces. in the integer domain, as the size of x shrinks towards zero the "number of pieces" of the resulting "size" required to represent the original whole diminishes.

1/4 = 4 pieces, 1/3 = 3 pieces 1/2 = 2 pieces 1/1 = 1

In the real number (float) domain it's obviously more complicated**approaches** zero

If you take the stance that any float y where y = 0 is for all practical purposes an integer and apply the rule consistently, I can't see having an issue with any typical application programming scenario. Where "typical" does not include mathematical operations beyond everyday computation for the average business user.

Possibly the stupidest thing I've heard this year .. and considering the year so far ... that's saying a lot.

Um

The "correct" answer depends on the purpose of the question ...

What does Elon really want to know ?

1) Do you think outside the box ? - North Pole is the wrong answer.

2) Are you a math geek ? - North Pole is the wrong answer.

3) Are you the sort who recognizes that the lack of a unique answer and protests the fairness of the question? - North Pole is probably still the wrong answer

4) Will you embrace the KISS principle? - North Pole is the RIGHT answer.

The form of the teaser that I originally heard is

I thought they were the same person ...

The fucking article does not ... the linked lawsuit does.

ok ... found it.

never mind ... i found it

where does it say that ?

uh ... where exactly does it say that ?

Help! I'm trapped in a PDP 11/70!
