any of you math geniuses care to explain how this would work with larger or smaller numbers? :P

recipe for geekdom:

# of digits in left number = # of horizontal rows

# of digits in right number = # of vertical rows

left # = # of rings

right # = # of "slices" in the rings

draw equal diagonal lines to divide into groups and count # of sections in each group. If group >= 10 carry the # of 10's to the next leftmost section 1s.

Rinse

Repeat

are you new here? you just painted a gigantic fucking "kick me" sign on your chest.

recipe for geekdom? recipe for virginity...

how come the top row doesn't get any additional 'rings' ? is that because it (in this example) is a 1? and the second row is based off of the 2? which would mean if it were 23 the first row would be have 2 rings and the second row would have 3 rings if my logic is correct? :P

hey i want to actually know GOD :P

New here? No, fucktard. Far from. And I'm a little too old for that "I'm more old school than you bullshit".

Yak, this might help...
# of rings:
ABC X DE =
A A
B B
C C

D is number of sections in vertical row 1, E is number of sections in vertical row 2.

Nothing wrong with putting your geek hat on from time to time.

^ I think you misunderstood, my little jerkoff-in-a-cup... This isn't a fucking geek site, this isn't a fucking mathtard site, and we don't give free blowjobs to college kids who fancy themselves smart. I guess what i meant to say is "entertain us or fuck off."

Hey coupland, they need more fries down in front.
11 years ago
sorry fucktard, i make more than you.
11 years ago
Ok, I'll bite. I haven't been a college student in more than 14 years. And given the fact that you're offended by even small displays of intelligent curiosity, I'd say the chances you "make more" than I do are non-existent.

Tell us again what kind of site this is? That always amuses me. At least you aim high. Self-proclaimed king of someone else's creation.
11 years ago
dude, i will take a slow breath and let you bow out silently. if you really want to pursue this i'd be happy to oblige, but i highly suggest you reconsider. no, really.
11 years ago
Got your back cope, not that you need any help.
11 years ago
Pursue what exactly? Does your driver's license say "functionally retarded" on it anywhere? Where do we go now, moron. You gonna post up W2s? Ask me to post up P&L's so I can prove your dick resembles a pussy?

And if you're threrastening to kick my ass, not only are you laughable. But, you're in over your head, kid. Find a new hobby before you get hurt.

uhm, double-post? I thought we would pursue not looking like a retard, but the outlook is somewhat bleak. :\
11 years ago
Hey man lets not threrasten anyone. That is just wrong. Not to mention IT ISN'T A WORD! Sounds more like you should get me fries.

Uhm... feeling kinda self-conscious... Did I win in a single move? Never done that before, that felt weird...
11 years ago
Why are you changing the subject. I'm waiting to see what comes from me not bowing out, little man. You gonna pay m,e a visit? You gonna post up some of those impressive McD's check stubs for all of us to view? You gonna make up some shit about how you're a 4th degree blackbelt in TKD? Gonna post a menacing pic of you holding your dad's handgun?

Come on little bitch, let's have it. Put your fucking money where your pole-smoker is at or put up a closed sign.
11 years ago
Uhm, no. The fact that i made you look ridiculous in a public forum and the fact that i make 6 digits i figured was enough. No? let me know, there's more where that came from...
11 years ago
6 digits, huh? OK. Not only are you full of shit, but if you were going to add digits, why not just make it seven? Why not eight? Hell, why not just tell us you're the illegitimate son of Bill Gates.

Math offends you, are you sure you added correctly? How many fucking circles and sections do you make little man?

11 years ago
dude, you're fucking stupid. I make six digits, that's why i made fun of you. if you're gonna be a fucking tard at least know what you're talking about. shall i tell you where i work and how much they pay? You'll only look stupider but if you insist...
11 years ago
Yes anyone how makes 6 digits must be the son of Bill Gates, now that we know 6 digits is like Bill Gates money to you, I'll have a large shake.
11 years ago
How the fuck would he pay you a visit? No one knows were you live dipshit. How do you call someone out to do something impossible.
It would probably be too low to beat your ass in front of your own parents in their own house anyway.
11 years ago
Yes, I work for Bill Gates. And stuntedevolution needs to learn his place.
11 years ago
Can't believe I got sucked into that. Looking for a mindless diversion, and I find the young anti-Bill Gates.

Just a few parting words, kid. Take it or leave it.

6 figures has almost a million dollars in variation. It's like saying you live in the Northern Hemisphere. And in any case, 6 figures isn't a lot of money. Just ask anyone who actually makes six figures.

Second, I have yet to meet anyone who is succesful who thinks it's humorous to belittle someone for showing intelligence or curiosity.

Third, the only thing you have owned is a claim which you would be a complete and total idiot to try to substantiate online. I'll just say I believe you and we can move on.

Lastly, Iranian was right. If it'll make you feel better about dropping it, then..yeah. You totally owned me. Well done.
11 years ago
Hey Archman, the only thing worse than a loser who makes empty "threats" online, is his sidekick.

Later...
11 years ago
No, no you don't just get to leave with a nice parting shot. Best thing about posting is that you don't have to be here for me rag on you. For the record no one says anything serious around here. Coupland's post was funny, iranian didn't give a shit, but then fuckin hippies have to come around and spread there bullshit like plague. I'm no ones sidekick, I just happen to hate people like you. My advice, take the dick out of your mouth, move out of you parents house, stop posting hippie bullshit that makes everyone blead from the eyes and take the second dick out of you mouth.
11 years ago
Wrong to be gay? Hmm.

Well, I am number one in Iranian's fan club so fuck everyone!

Oh, I forgot to tell you, you might want to take sub-vom's tit out of your mouth aswell. You two really go well together, a stupid hippie douche bag, and a sensative annoying fat know it all whore. But we don't want to see those pictures.
11 years ago
Ahh, ok. I get it now. "Archman" is the fry-cook at the golden arches, and coupland is his "6-figure" making supervisor. It's like watching "The Office" on the internets. Is your real name Dwight, by any chance?

I wouldn't want you to "blead" from the eyes, Einstein. Lemme just grab my VW van and my peace pipe and roll on out, before you hurt yourself with witty comebacks. I'm guessing you don't even need me here, you could probably keep yourself going with only minimal Vagisil pit stops.
11 years ago
Sorry, after I droped the sub-vom insult, you really can't go any lower. I would much rather be Dwight, a McD cook and taking Vagisil pit stops then with her. So, if your gonna just build on the insults I made already or you made already, really creative by the way, there is little you can do. And since I know your a overly sensative dick that can't take a joke and you know nothing about me except for the the fact that I really want people like you to die or leave the country, you come up with something, or raise the white flag. Oh, and your right, I don't need you here, nor does anybody else.
11 years ago
Just looking at this from a third person perspective...Archman, you're a retard and Coupland's lapdog. stunt...well, good luck on ever getting laid. Don't really have anything negative to say about coupland...
11 years ago
Like Shit head said, Archman comes off looking like a real tard in this one.
And just a quick question for everyone: how does the amount of money a person makes have any relevance in an argument about "ideas?" I'm all for money, but I don't think having lots of it guarantees merit either.
11 years ago
haha, Archman you really are a retatrd.

I gotta agree with stunted on this one. Anyone can say they get 6 figure salaries.

I love how everything on this site comes down to wether or not it gets you laid. Like the mental age of 15 or something.

Yak, get some forums up, and get people to post up pics of themselves, it'd be interesting.

i really want to be a sidekick! any takers? keep it funny coup. it cracks me up!
11 years ago
Alright, if i lost, i lost, my point of view is bias anyway. I just didn't like someone calling out coupland like that, he is the funniest guy here.
11 years ago
Sorry nagh sayers. I am Inclined to side with stunted. He didn't start the fight, he was simply trying to explain this to Yak (and cudos to you Yak for not jumping back in to this squabble). I was also interested in how this "cool" math worked. P.S. I am mentally 15 and want to get laid! :)

Oh, I forgot, Coup the numbers after the desimal point don't count.
11 years ago
eh.... its the internet.. everyone is right :P
i will say its kind of retarded to discuss how much money someone makes on the internet, its not like it helps with your "e-peen"... neither does trying to "insult" someone by trying to belittle where they work, whether they work shoveling shit or McDonalds or are a brain surgeon it makes no difference to me, unless i'm ordering some fries from McDonalds or getting brain surgery... But saying someone doesn't know something based on where they work is just stupid. just as stupid as using how much money you make as a point in an argument :P

i thought this website was for the unemployed, yet we have people fighting about wages and blah blah. Why not take your fight to Washington and raise the minimum wage for everybody. It will get your jollies off.
11 years ago
I'm beating a dead horse to no end on this one, but meh, whatever. Albino, the whole point of human exsistance is to get laid and reproduce, is it not? If you do not pass on your seed and hence, put more swimmers in your gene pool, then what's the point in living. Not to mention, having sex is probably the best experience I've had in my short life. I think Fry said it best, "You have to chose between a life without sex or a horrific death? Tough choice."

choose* Fuck you and your grammer
11 years ago
What the hell did my gramma ever do to you?
11 years ago
Coup- the mere fact that you still work- regardess if for "six digits" or otherwise, tells me you are still in my wake. When you get "six digits" without lifting a finger for a manadatory job like I do, THEN I will put on my "ohhhhhh" face for you. Until then, keep getting up to your alarm clock and making money for Billy Boy. I stopped doing that 4 years ago and I probably make jut as much or more sitting on my retired ass.

Oh yeah- fuck you, Stunt.

What about the nerdy but secretly dirty gi- wait, no, they could do this in their heads in a tenth of the time and would be more interested in a strip show anyway.

I love that song. last time I heard it I was in the dentist office.
11 years ago
Archman...Your a real a-hole! Do you feel threatened by ppl whom may have a bit of smarts in there brain..? Unlike the fucking shit you got spewing out if yours! I picture your dumb f'ckin weassle ass, nerdy,BIG thick glasses,greasy hair with white heads all over your cowardly face! "How close am i..! "Right on the 6 figure digits aren't i"

I thought he was going to start drawing boobs when the circles started. Anyway, isn't it a lot easier to just multiply the numbers then draw all those circles. Plus it seems like it would be harder to keep track of unless you had paper or a good memory for shapes.

i almost got it, were it not for that fucking music. I felt like i was in the waiting area of my dentist's office... doing math!! FUCK!

um...i didnt follow...
11 years ago
that is such a fucking gay, and complicated way, to do math. Just do it the regular way...take 2 off the 12, multiply 34 by 10 equalling 340, then add 2 times 34 which would be 340 + 68 which equals 408
11 years ago
there are lots of different ways to solve a math problem, just because one way is more 'complicated' doesn't make it worse however... sometimes the more complicated way of doing things can end up teaching you more then doing it the 'easy way' :P
11 years ago
I agree with yak, this might be complicated to you but to people who learn visually, this is pretty usful.
11 years ago
regular way..or do mental math, which is the method I just used

(10a+b)(10c+d)=100ac+10(ad+bc)+bd. that's all it is. this "# of rows# and "sum of this or that" is just confusing.

yes, this is my first post. and i've been wanting to ask, why the hell did the layout change? i'm starting to get used to it, but it feels so wrong..
