There's fabulous stuff on youtube. That there is also shit doesn't negate the great stuff.

I'm sure there is, but like I said, I don't have time to watch them. Other than being owned by Google I have no particular problem with YouTube.

A=Pi r squared. (apologies; don't have math notations on this keyboard.)

Being as Pi is irrational, A will vary depending on how many decimals of pi you use. In fact, the answer will always be a little bit wrong.

It might be said that A doesn't equal pi r squared.

Awful example, although not what I expected you to come up with. That's just incomplete data - there's no contradiction anywhere in it.

Is the sphere really a sphere?

Yes and yes.

Just because you cannot draw a perfect sphere - which is all your argument is - has no bearing on the maths behind it. Seriously - you're just describing the difficulty of pi, because it's infinite. It doesn't change any maths anywhere.

You even say it yourself: "A will vary depending on how many decimals of pi you use". Two different inputs, two different answers.

What you need is one where using pi to 100 decimal places gives two opposing answers. (yes, with consistent rounding!)

2 hours to say that we can't calculate infinity? Fuckin' hell, I'm glad I didn't watch the videos!

There's no victory involved - you might have been going to show me something I didn't know.

Virus has had its arse kicked. A day out in the sun mowing lawns fixed it.

There are lots of things I don't know, and I've had all kinds of misconceptions removed from all kinds of angles and from the strangest people. Nothing to say this mightn't be another one.

Well, there is - a carton of delicious chocolate fish. They contain no fish, so you'd be fine with them. If you didn't eat 'em I bet Mary would. They only weigh about an ounce each. Light snack
