You guys do realise that != just means "not equal to?"
actually, thats not true.

in mathematical computing "not equal to" is represented as "~="

Really?

"!=" can also be 'not equal to'.

in computing "!" means not, in boolean logic "~" means not. in pure maths "!" means factorial, where x! is the integral from 0 to infinity of e^t*t^x dt

no need to get mean now!!!

3! = 3 * 2 * 1 = 6

correct?

Yes but the integral evaluation works for any real value of x for x!

Try working out 2.4! using your method.

You probably shouldn't look at my proof that you = bumblebees then.

Yes, a small glitch was found, at which point it was a mad dash to rectify the problem, just a year later the fixed, perfect proof was published and is now widely accepted as conclusive.

its possibel to find factorial of fractional numbers usuing gamma functions

*gasp* really? Did I not demonstrate knowledge of that a few posts ago?

How's this:

Let t = time, m = money, e = evil:

t = m <= Time is money
and m = root(e) <= Money is the root of all evil

Hence t = root(e)
t^2 = e

Time Square is evil! Don't go there!
