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.

#6

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


#7

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

Dave,

I sent you an email to the address mentioned in this site.

Cheers,

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

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


#11

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.

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

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! ;-)

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 ;)


#17

Newton "inventing" gravity - that was a joke!


#18

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