Pray for Isaac(your serving one)'s dad and his family.

I am so sore and tired now.

Activity today:

In the morning, hike up mission peak in 1 hour and 39 minutes.

Tennis racket baseball at cancer park in the afternoon.

Dodge ball in hall 2 at night.

Electric tag in the parking lot of hall 2 at night.

Now I am going to sleep so I can get up at 3 o'clock to wait in line for the after-thankgiving shopping.

I'm out.

A man wrote a letter to s a small hotel in a midwest town he planned to visit on his vacation. He wrote:

"I would very much like to bring my dog with me. He is well-groomed and very well behaved. Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?"

An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who said,

"I've been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I've never had a dog steal towels, bed clothes or silverware or pictures off the walls.

I've never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly. And I've never had a dog run out on a hotel bill.

Yes, indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel. And, if your dog will vouch for you, you're welcome to stay here, too."

We read these,and we simply had to share them.36 Humorous Methods of ProofAnyone who has ever fought with a proof will love this list. Enjoy! themathlab.com staff |
||

1 | Proof by obviousness | "The proof is so clear that it need not be mentioned." |

2 | Proof by general agreement | "All in favor?..." |

3 | Proof by imagination | "Well, we'll pretend it's true..." |

4 | Proof by convenience | "It would be very nice if it were true, so..." |

5 | Proof by necessity | "It had better be true, or the entire structure of mathematics would crumble to the ground." |

6 | Proof by plausibility | "It sounds good so it must be true." |

7 | Proof by intimidation | "Don't be stupid; of course it's true." |

8 | Proof by lack of sufficient time | "Because of the time constraint, I'll leave the proof to you." |

9 | Proof by postponement | "The proof for this is long and arduous, so it is given in the appendix." |

10 | Proof by accident | "Hey, what have we here?!" |

11 | Proof by insignificance | "Who really cares, anyway?" |

12 | Proof by mumbo-jumbo | |

13 | Proof by profanity | (example omitted) |

14 | Proof by definition | "We define it to be true." |

15 | Proof by tautology | It's true because it's true." |

16 | Proof by plagiarism | "As we see on page 289,..." |

17 | Proof by lost reference | "I know I saw it somewhere..." |

18 | Proof by calculus | "This proof requires calculus, so we'll skip it." |

19 | Proof by terror | When intimidation fails... |

20 | Proof by lack of interest | "Does anyone really want to see this?" |

21 | Proof by illegibility | |

22 | Proof by logic | "If it is on the problem sheet, then it must be true!" |

23 | Proof by majority rule | "Only to be used if general agreement is impossible." |

24 | Proof by clever variable choice | "Let A be the number such that this proof works..." |

25 | Proof by tessellation | "This proof works the same as the last." |

26 | Proof by divine word | "...And the Lord said, 'Let it be true,' and it was true." |

27 | Proof by stubbornness | "I don't care what you say-it is true!" |

28 | Proof by simplification | "This proof reduces to the statement 1+1=2." |

29 | Proof by hasty generalization | "Well, it works for 17, so it works for all real numbers." |

30 | Proof by deception |
"Now everyone turn their backs..." |

31 | Proof by supplication | "Oh please, let it be true." |

32 | Proof by poor analogy | "Well, it's just like..." |

33 | Proof by avoidance | Limit of proof by postponement as it approaches infinity |

34 | Proof by design | If it's not true in today's math, invent a new system in which it is. |

35 | Proof by authority | "Well, Ruth Kraus says it's true, so it must be!" |

36 | Proof by intuition | "I just have this gut feeling..." |
