    If a light wave was travailing through a block of glass that was, itself,
    accelerated to the speed of light, would the light wave stand still?

    Of course, remember to use an airborne, “space-based”, laser
    beam, and make sure the building is stocked full of popcorn
    kernels first… See movie, Real Genius.

    To state the obvious, this guy is either an actor playing
    the part of Professor, lying, or Idiotus Stupendis.
    Elliptic Curve Cryptography at an ATM machine? –
    No software engineer, worthy of that title, would do that.
    (Not without widespread adoption of Google glasses, at
    least). To wit, when you go to an ATM, the instructions
    you see on the screen are not encrypted… Or is he referring
    to a “cloud-based, virtual ATM”? Like that found on a Blackberry
    Commerce application? ECC was specifically meant for
    low memory, low bandwidth, low processor-power applications –
    perfect when you have many-to-many transactions going through
    a server… But an ATM, is like one-to-many, or many-to-one…
    The one being “the money god, ATM, idol,… called, MCP” (see
    movie, Tron – the only decent movie, not counting Dragonslayer,
    that Disney Corp. put out)… Frankly, these students should ask
    for their tuition money back. And if they are refused, they should
    burn the building down. Why?> Because, terrorism works, Kent.
    And I think Lazlo would agree.

    Odd how the history of mathematics seems “racist”, in that
    who gets the credit, is of greater importance than, the math
    itself… Why all that ego?… But any universal truth must be attributed to
    somebody, so why not… this guy… Newton and Leibniz are both
    said to have invented the Calculus… but, there was great debate
    about whose notations should be used – Leibniz won, in that
    popularity contest… And many English mathematicians were OK,
    siding with a German one… I once read an ancient Japanese manuscript,
    that showed a simple algebraic proof of why the area of a circle is
    PI*R*squared, and not some other entity – it imployed the concept of
    a limit… and it was easy to understand… Yet, you would think that
    something like that would appear in high school textbooks, with
    credit attributed to some anonymous Japanese mathematician from
    the, I think it was, 1600s… Usually, a teacher will tell the students, you
    have to learn calculus to understand why the area of a circle is equal
    to Pi*R*squared… Algebra… El’ Jebr… an arab mathematician, who
    first conceived of using symbols to stand for letters… (The difference
    between a variable and a parameter, is subtle) … And have many
    always associated the Scots with engineering, or was it made popular
    by Scotty, the engineer on Star Trek, tv show?… Actually, it probably
    came about during the founding of the British Empire, what with the
    need for much bridge and locomotive railroads tracks, that needed
    to be built… And once a group of people develop a reputation…
    Well, consider the power of a corporate brand… It may only be sugar plus
    water, but there is a difference between Coca-Cola and Pepsi, if only in
    proportion (taste)… Pythagoras’ Theorem… and not,… Caveman Joe’s…
    Ego… No patent royalties here, but … getting the credit… how vain?
    how righteous? To give credit where credit is due… Bruce Lee, no entry
    for him in the Encyclopaedia Brittanica… One for James Dean, Charlie
    Chaplin, Elvis Presley, Adolf Hitler, Marilyn Monroe, Ginger Rogers,
    Fred Astaire… why the omission? .. I notice things… Is that, pattern
    recognition? Euler, famous mathematician – he went insane… completely
    bonkers… all, 6’s and 7’s… Aside : 6*7=42.

  • rowdy yeats says:

    I hate statistics, because there is no way of knowing what really is…
    You are merely guessing… even if there is “method to your madness”…
    For example, if you flip a coin a hundred times, and it comes up ‘heads’,
    what would the odds be if you flip it again, of it coming up ‘tails’?
    Statistics people will say, 50-50, assuming it is a fair coin… But the way
    I see it, the odds that it is not a fair coin seem so high, that betting it
    comes up ‘heads’ seems safer…

    why you tube video are not clearly played ?

  • rowdy yeats says:

    Each card in a pack has a number on one side and a
    letter on the other. Four cards are placed on the table :
    2 3 A B.
    You have to test the following hypothesis :
    A card which has an even number on one side, has a
    vowel on the other.
    You are allowed to turn over two cards.
    Which cards should you turn?
    … Wow, this sounds like a problem from statistics…
    You have a sample of 4 cards taken from a 52 card (?) deck,
    it would seem. And what you are testing for is evidence
    that the hypothesis might not hold true. But if no evidence
    is found that the hypothesis is false, that does not mean that
    there is not a card in that 52 deck that might be like a card
    with an even number on one side, but with a consonant on the
    other….

    If you have an infinitely deep bucket filled to the top with water and you
    drop a rock into it, will the displacement cause the water to overflow?
    edit: assuming of course that you ignore the fact that an infinite amount
    of any matter would want to collapse into a black hole that is…

  • rowdy yeats says:

    Perhaps a slide, with the comment : “Doing mathematics will not turn you
    into a **(&#$*(*%, but will make you really cool”… would encourage more
    boys to consider mathematics as a career?

    Yes! If you take away or add any letter or a number to this scientifically
    proven scripture it will expose easily! God challenges humans if they could
    bring only one chapter like the Quran. Check Ultimate Mathematics Generator
    of the Quran, or Ultimate mathematics of the Quran or The secret Code 19 of
    the Quran it is awesome. All those Prophets commanded to follow the Nation
    of Abraham, but we came up with 4200 fake religions! Preachers must pay
    back those billions of $ by misleading people.

  • ThankGOD4music2014 says:

    Hi, you may look for Ultimate Mathematics Generator of The Quran, or
    Ultimate Mathematics of the Quran on UT or Code 19 of the Quran or
    Message-of-god on web may check the mathematics of the Quran on this one. I
    have been following that for 25 years now it is awesome. There are about
    1500 scientific pages plus more than 40 video Tapes available.

  • ThankGOD4music2014 says:

    2 American scientists have been discovering awesome mathematical signs in
    the Quran ever since 1974. Now we have the purified scientifically proven
    Quran supported by mathematics mother of all sciences. Taking away one
    letter or a number to or from the Arabic text would easily be exposed! It
    is on the bases of #19 secret code of the Quran, and primes, composites,
    twin prim companion, quad prime, mersenne primes,,.This irrefutable
    mathematical discovery has no flaws in it. Generator of the Quran.

  • applecake122 says:

    Ancient Indian mathematicians like Baudhayana, Pingala, Brahmagupta and
    Aryabhata were great.

    In my homeland Germany, there are documentations about science in the
    Islamic world but there are no documentations about science in ancient
    India.

  • bangalore_guy guy says:

    I think it is important that credi is given where it is due. While
    westerners are undoubtedly the leaders in technology/mathematics today,
    their propensity to mis-appropriate/lay claim to everything invented under
    the sun , points to a racially motivated bias.

    I remember, as a kid, when learning physics / mathematics, coming across
    all european names, wondering why no indian had ever contributed anything ,
    and wondering if we , as a civilization , were stupid.

    White supremacy theories , of whites/ europeans being superior to everyone
    else, rest on the false impression that europeans invented everything.

    @thefetishkingfarts ok i am not believing you. people always make fun of
    others. there is nothing new in it. and they are fools because they have no
    manners to talk. even these westerns made fun of Galileo when he said, “sun
    is the center of our solar system, not our great holy earth.” these people
    themselves are pompous and delusional. even they have no manners to talk.
    they just know how to abuse others. and you are giving your attention on
    them. I don`t care.

  • GK007001 says:

    India is projected with Taj Mahal(Tejo mahal), kuthubminar , Red Fort…..
    Is this real India, is this our original culture!! our culture goes way way
    beyond this. Its high time we need to stand up to ourself . There are soo
    many 1000 of years old constructions being destroyed and fallan evey year
    in India, which is never been recognised. Original Sri Kalahisti temple
    frot monument collaped last year. Locals complied about it few years back,
    nobody cared for it. its 600 years old construction.

    The British still cant decipher the books they stole. Still rotting for
    there evil deeds. Hey Greg Rio. Caste is based on Karma. The enlightened
    one is always a Brahmin. The one who fights for the motherland a warrior.
    These days the Brahmins are no more that is why all shit flies everywhere.

  • GK007001 says:

    u mf, u ugly stinking bi**h.. Its not racism u ugly cunt…its fact…now
    you don’t make it racist comments. stfu. when most of the muslim countries
    donest allow other religion next to them, the declare a religious states,
    when d fcuk you don’t see hardcore racism…when i talk about the facts you
    term as raciest…u fking aho. stfu and gtfo u mf

  • indurnuguri1 says:

    There is a cycle of greatness which comes out from a civilisation time to
    time and India was a proud partner in its time. Some of the conclusions
    reached by Arabs during 10th, 11th century AD were postulated by ancient
    Indians centuries before. Al-Beruni, the medieval islamic scholar who had
    knowledge in various subjects wrote in his book on India, about the depth
    and greatness of ancient Indian mathematics. The Arabs should be
    congratulated for spreading that knowledge to much wider audience.
