Is this the right room for an argument?

This is abuse!

Edit: oh. The version I'm more familiar with from a CD has the fellow walking into the wrong room, which turns out to be "abuse" where he just gets yelled at. Apparently that wasn't part of the original TV sketch.

I've been eating breakfast for dinner every night this week because I can.

Argue with that. ;D

Must I subscribe to or disprove any, or maybe several, aspects of Newtonian physics to report that I am not ill sitting here in Florida- per the title of this thread?

An abundance of your input much appreciated.

For all of you COVID-19 isolationists, Ramanujan's story was told in an excellent book called "The Man Who Knew Infinity". The 2014 movie of the same name is okay, but sensationalizes a few things, and the book of course is much better.
We saw that movie on an airplane. Very interesting!

Yes, that's the way I first heard it, also. But it was from my older brother's LP, not a CD. Here's the script:

Good morning fellow cats and dogs. I'm still here. Here is something to lighten us up a bit:

I've seen that. It's so great. And his voice hasn't changed!

I finished my math assignment.

I think I've developed PTSD.

I hope this doesn't sound snide, because I don't mean it that way at all, I'm just genuinely curious.

Why does someone who doesn't like math have a beautiful math equation as his signature line?

By the way, that math equation blows my mind every time I look at it. It's quite amazing to think that two irrational numbers could do something like that. Written in longhand it is something like (2.71828...) to the power of i times (3.14159...) is equal to -1. It's quite trippy.

Also, in one of your earlier posts you said that "infinite series suck". I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that there is no way to prove that beautiful math equation without using infinite series, so obviously they are quite useful.
