How did a thread consisting of Bankers, a gay swimmer and a camp bloke with a dodgy beard, make Daviesee come out of the woodwork?

    mmm, this combination will take some time to crack, I think it's a + bi, where a and b are real numbers and i is the imaginary unit, which satisfies the equation i2 = −1 :D

    If 'I' is the imaginary unit, then this equation satisfies every unsolved problem.

    I do not think that a+bi will be as iconic as E=MC2 but in years to come, I will do my utmost to say it was T47b that came up with that one.

    imaginary numbers were 'thought up' during the renaissance and they allow us to do square roots of negative numbers, I don't know what they did before that.

    Anyway I always thought all numbers were imaginary, they live in our heads, which reminds me of the village I grew up in, it seemed like a huge place back then but now it's small enough to fit inside my head :D

    Why on earth would you (or to use the Royal 'one') want to find out the square root of a negative number?
    Did Ernesto Colnago think before he built the Master Olympic "You know, there is no way I can do those long point chromed lugs if I don't know the square root of -7, I might have to go back to working on the dockyardb]*[/b".?

    *'Dockyard' - metaphor for any menial, low skilled job.

    Why? To rotate a vector around a common point and possibly stretch it by multiplying a matrix of numbers, obvious really.

    I don't know WTF that means either :D

    psst, Ernesto, it is 2.64575131 i :roll:

    I've said it before but none of us is as clever as wat you is T47 :P

    That wouldn't prove intelligence, it would just prove you're a loon :wink:

    Don't inflate his ego. It was already too big to fit in the UK. Besides, he thinks he can placate me with some a+bi bollox when there is probably a very honest, perverse reason davisee crawled out from under his stone to reply to the thread in question.
    I still don't have the explanation. It will be one of the great unsolved conundrums of 2013.

    Man can work out the square root of minus one, but try it on a computer and it fails miserably.

    So T47 must have better brains than a computer!
