It is quite possible he is completely unaware that the discussion rumbled on beyond that point.
Yeah. That's a given. I'm interested in his motivation for asking it. Using the wrong terminology in a group of professionals can at the last lead to a few smirks if not friendly insults, enough to challenge ones own confidence. To mean increment and use uncertainty will raise eyebrows among the knowledgeable.

Not that my basic spelling or arithmetic won't. Lol

Did you get all of your physics education in highschool because its clear that you clearly didn't get it at an Ivy League school as you'd like people to believe unless your daddy paid to get you in and keep you in.

Read a damn book on math or physics for christs sake.


Ignorant nonsense like this post make you an honorable member of my ignore list. You'll rank much much higher if you post a comment directed to me expecting to me to read it as so many crackpots in these forums do.

This is untrue.

The rest of this post has been reported for its unsavoury content.
