I think you need to check your FORTH programming skills. My HP71B (mint condition) says that equation does NOT compute.

Admit it- you are using a TI-58C! (with the usual 5-6 "sticking" buttons)

I was trying to say

Octal 31 equals decimal 25...

My mistake. I was not smart enough to catch on. Apologies.




Happy Newton's Day - Eric Smith - 12-25-2007

Just think what life would be like if Newton hadn't invented gravity!


Re: Happy Newton's Day - Dave Shaffer (Arizona) - 12-25-2007

I think we'd all still be - we just wouldn't know why!


Re: Happy Newton's Day - John W Kercheval - 12-25-2007

Also Sir Isaac was the leader of the Priory of Sion during his day as well- THAT has numerous present day implications as well.

Re: Happy Newton's Day - BruceH - 12-25-2007

If Sir Isaac hadn't been so famous then his name wouldn't have been taken in order to lend credence to a
hoax.


Re: Happy Newton's Day - John W Kercheval - 12-25-2007

Actually, most Priory leaders were unknowns Sir Isaac was a rarity.

And the Priory is not a hoax. It exists today and in full force. Please don't ask me HOW I know this.

Thank you very much for remiding me of this wonderful article by Richard Dawkins.

Actually, Newton's date of birth fits in quite well in my "OCT 31 == DEC 25" joke, as

December 25, 1642 (Julian Calendar) is January 4, 1643 (Gregorian Calendar)

meaning that I or Eric can open a new thread on January 4th to wish you all Happy Newton's Day all over again! ;-)


Re: Happy Newton's Day - Walter B - 12-26-2007

Ok, John, it's not a plain hoax -- it's a well documented hoax. But that would be another thread 8)


Re: Happy Newton's Day - Walter B - 12-26-2007

Newton *discovered* the laws of gravity. Gravity ruled at least for 1.4e10 years then already, so this was no *invention* by whatever patent laws.

Hallo & Frohe Weihnachten nach Mainz! Was wolltest du sagen? Ich verstehe dein Englisch in diesem Fall nicht.

(Just asking for a translation or interpretation ;)


Re: Happy Newton's Day - Meenzer - 12-26-2007

Newton "inventing" gravity - that was a joke!


Re: Happy Newton's Day - Walter B - 12-26-2007

Thank you for the translation of Eric's post ;-)
