Unless she's got red hair, legs that won't quit, and is fresh and young just out of college.

(Would have added appropriate NBL, but this fucking cheapskate board says the file is too big....something I hear all the time btw...but of course, she's lying. That's why I call her "Doesn't like horses")

Must be Chaitin's Ω:
Each halting probability is a normal and transcendental real number that is not computable, which means that there is no algorithm to compute its digits.
P. – S. Sparky, rehost (e. g. https://postimage.org/), we need NBLs!

I knew someone like that, only light brown instead of red hair. Sometimes she'd dye it reddish. And legit a better mathematician than I was. I sold out and got my post graduate in the business school. She stayed in pure math, and now is a professor and sometimes heads math departments.

So not a myth!

Actually, now that I think of it, I've known two examples, though the second was just an acquaintance.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

That's what happens when a player takes his ball and goes home.

Yes because in the course of trying to solve the "link goes to wrong page" problem, I recycled a spammer account and associated all leftover "topic author" entries with that recycled account. It didn't work. I still don't know what the cause of the problem is. If deleting Abdul's account and post left gaps in the posts table that is resulting in the links not working, I may have to resort to renumbering all posts which could lead to even more glitches in the Matrix.

Couldn't you just have changed Abdul to a different name?

For example, I want to hide my identity, can you change my user name to "Skippy the happy armadillo"?

That way nobody will know it's me
