This thread is a bit of a change of pace from most other threads in this board. I want to know, what do you guys name your ships? I goof around in game quite a bit, but I do like having decidedly more "serious" names for my ships.

Dominix - "Edge of Dawn"
Dominix #2 - "Caprica"
Brutix #1 - "Burn Down The Sky"
Brutix #2 - "Siege The Day"
Myrmidon #1 - "This Providence"
Myrmidon #2 - "Against Today"
Ishkur #1 - "Radiance"

Bunch of others I can't be arsed to look up at the moment, but feel free to share ship name's you're proud of, or think are funny, whatever. Of course, if this bombs, I'll just change the topic to "x vs y" and let everyone slug it out like normal :P

Lack of proper math symbols on the forums sucks. The "/e" is the "not an element of" symbol. Now think about it again.

Lol, at least this isn't real life, where people see I'm Asian, and automatically assume I'm good at math :P

The last one is the easy one: "A crete says: 'All crete lie.'" Classic paradox that is solved if you don't mix up the assertion with the meta assertion, means the fact over itself. For if you mix this up you get the paradox.

Basically the same paradox if you claim someone or something or a higher beeing is allmighty. Allmight is a paradox for you have a mixup of assertion and meta assertion. "Can you build a moutain, that is so high, that even you can't get over it?" If he can, he can not climb the mountain, if he can not, he can do everything but build this kind of mountain. Goedel did the same with formal systems. Magritte did it with "Ceci n'est pas une pipe", the mixing up of both levels, plain and meta.

I personally like too: "This sentence no verb" and similar variants.

But I don't see the point of your "R" statement, maybe because I don't get the symbols which are different here. While R is the the set of Real Numbers which include all possible natural, fractions and irrational numbers as well as transcendental ones, A is the set of all numbers that are the solution of a polynom with rational coefficients, is the set of algebraic numbers.

Like sqrt(2) is the solution of x-2=0, therefor an element of this set. Pi, which is element of R is not an element of A. As well as x+1=0 is an element of A but no element of R, for the result is a complex number. I don't see a way of including Pi into R with just statements about beeing part or not of A or combinations of A, for Pi is not expressable in any way by a (finite) polynom. And if you say R is all numbers that are in A and not in A then you get some numbers in, that are not part of R, like the complex ones. R is also not A without C, the complex numbers, for Pi and all other transcendental numbers would be missing.

I don't see how the definition R={A|A [element of] A} can be that. Even if I assume anything beeing "|". But of cause I'm just a stupid Sebiestor girl... This is looking for me like something elaborate version of "Pi is a real number" but not just wrong about Pi but also poisoning R with a lot of C. We got a guy in front of our university that was claiming to have "invented" Pi some years ago and who was giving everyone a flyer that, he said, proves that Pi is exactly 3.1426 with a circular prove, that came back to the statement that he invented it.

Of cause he must have been Amarr. Ah, when I remember well the guy looked highly disturbed and didn't dare to look you into your eye, speaking in a very low voice and handling the paper in a way as if he was doing something forbidden, looking around him, ancious that he is under observation and being followed. I often think about this guy and try to figure out if he was real of if that was a bitter task of one of the rare student frat, that you find more on Gallente Universities but not here. But he was too old for that. Maybe he was just an Amarr, yes.

I read "Consign to Oblivion, Thir...wait...what?"

My hangar:
Drake: Caldari Pride
Harbinger: Carus Bearus ( ratting )
Harbinger: William Tell ( sniper )
Harbinger: Blank Infinity ( spare sniper )
Crow: Nomad ( for travelling, warp speed rigs )
Impel: Carbon Fiber
Buzzard: Shadowrun
Blackbird: Bird Is The Word
Hulk: Barrel Roll

And many more...
