Draxx said:I fired one of my RA's on tuesday because she refused to do her job based on some idiotic mormon ideology. I told her to pass out flyers for an event I was interested in about a speaker coming to my school, and she made this huge deal about it. She was saying shit like I'm never listening to you again, I'm never passing out your atheist propaganda, I'm going to try and get you fired, etc.
After her little tirade of about 2 minutes, I just simply said "You're fired." It was a great moment. For insubordination, not because she's a mormon, of course.
Lacey_Lightfoot said:1/3 = .3333... in some sense, but only in terms of explaining a very complicated idea in simple terms. trying to convert that extremely complicated infinite number into a simple and finite fraction is useful for many reasons, but not this one because we are trying to examine .3333... now if you took this decimal number, and converted it into a fraction, can you make that fraction into 1/3? no you cant, because its an infinite number. now, if you understand how equality works, you should see that since it is impossible to turn the .3333... into 1/3rd, but possible to turn 1/3 into .3333.... that the idea of assuming that .333.... is equal to 1/3 is entirely untrue. you cannot simply assume that because we say 1/3 is equal to .33333... because thats what they teach, its not, but the idea of dealing with infinte decimals is extremely confusing and pointless for most cases, so we round it up by some unknown amount to magically make 3 x .333.... =1 because dealing with the fact that it infinitely approaches 1 while never actually becoming 1 is extremly confusing
