# The Proof is Trivial! Watch

1. (Original post by Zakee)
Just for anyone who's doing any late night Mathematics/Studying/Procrastination (the most likely option), here's a small meme to cheer you up:
Unfortunately that is incorrect, because the LOTF is very likely to be opposite but greater.

Personally I like "ansatz".
It's a great word. I learnt it in "The Quantum Story"

For 'every' physicist, (the summation of all physicists) there is one Lord of the Flies who is equal to them.

Then you should have used some kind of proposition involving "all" rather than "every", and even then it's still probably greater.
5. I wonder how physicsy I can make the questions before you all throw me out....

It wouldn't fit, you pernickety plop.

You're being ignominiously pedantic. Like that word? Take it! Do your dissertation. *prods*.

I actually enjoy Mathematical Physics. I'm more of an applied Mathematician than anything (if I could even call myself a mathematician with the morsel that I know. )

Is that the right context for that word?

I might walk ignominiously away from the thread after being shunned because the physics....

It can either be used for 'a shameful act'. Or 'something which deserves slander/calumny - a despicable act/one which can be reprimanded'. It is, as his views are reprehensible (those views being so pedantic).

Fair enough, I'm not sure I'd use it like that if it were me.

How would you use it? (See below).

Welcome to TSR, we are more inclined to pedantry as a guilty pleasure than most

Mwahahaha I appear to have trained an army of talented mathmos to prod you to write your dissertation.

When you get to your PhD you'll thank me. I hope.

If this still happens at PhD then perhaps the question is whether I should be in a PhD at all rather than something else.

The proposition:

It's contrapositive:
Are you sure that's the contrapositive?

The for-alls should turn into exists. Hence x=4 not satisfying your last line is no contradiction, as long as there is at least one value of x that does.

REPOSTED: Darn TSR not working.
19. edit: yeah, don't worry.. being a moron..

If a statement is "", then why wouldn't the negation be ""? I don't see how/where exists should come into it..
The negation of any statement of the form is , which is equivalent to . However here you have , which is not equivalent. Example:

"Not all students on TSR are mathematicians."

is not equivalent to

"All students on TSR are not mathematicians."
