Archimedes Conjecture

Recommended Posts

Just guessing, but I think you put the fulcrum close to the end of the lever that is nearer the world. :D

(I know, nobody likes a smart aleck.)

I think that Mr A was smart enough to leave that decision and problem to the giver. If you can give him then he can perform.

It is easier to be brilliant on a hypothetical than on a practicaal action.

I once read something (doubtless written by an engineer) along similar lines. The engineer said that if you had several thumbs and no common sense, then you became a scientist. Engineers, on the other hand, had to be smarter than scientists because they had to create practical, WORKING solutions to the garbage posited by the scientists.

The parallels with the IRS and the actuarial/TPA community are too depressing to contemplate.
