Myself, I stay away from using smilies. I used to use them years ago, though I stopped since it seems inappropriate to me.

Smilies are essential for use online since there is no emotion in text. :whistle:

I see your point, though I think some people overuse them to the point it's obnoxious.

On MSFN, the only smilie I've ever used is :wacko: since I occasionally wander down the wacky road. However, I make great use of LOL, LOL!, (LOL), (LOL!) -- (note that there is a *great difference* in the meaning of these 4 versions) -- lol, lol!, (lol), (lol!), LOL, LOL!, (LOL), (LOL!), and lol, lol!, (lol), (lol!). With these 16 nuanced versions of "laugh out loud", I sometimes spend hours deciding on which one to use in a particular situation when I make a Post on MSFN. (Just kidding, I'm not that wacky.)
P.S.
I like your avatar, but I especially like your member name, "blackturbokitty", for its juxtaposition of the aggressive and forceful (i.e., "turbo") with the gentle and fragile (i.e., "kitty"). You don't have a split personality do you? (lol)
(It only took me 45 minutes to determine that this was the appropriate version of "laugh out loud" to use here.) :wacko:

A great image, Tripredacus.
I looked fixedly at it for 30 minutes and became hypnotized. I had to take a cold shower to become un-hypnotized.
LOL, LOL!, (LOL), (LOL!), lol, lol!, (lol), (lol!), LOL, LOL!, (LOL), (LOL!), lol, lol!, (lol), (lol!) !!
Here is my *static* response to your image. ( I was thinking about van Gogh's "Starry Night" as I made it.)

A cute image, jaclaz, but aren't those hamsters "humping"?

As well as humour, judging from the image in your avatar, you may be able to appreciate this one (still OT :ph34r:):

Seriously, jaclaz, I did appreciate your i and pi cartoon. (I got a good chuckle out of it.)
I had never seen a mathematical cartoon along those lines before.
If you have some other favorite links in your collection that you'd like to post -- (if it's not too much trouble) -- I'd certainly be happy to check them out. Thanks.
P.S.
Pee-Wee Herman would certainly love pi, for it indeed goes on to "infinity" !

NOT a smiley, and NOT a cartoon, BUT math related:

I often forget :blushing: how the board software parses incorrectly :realmad: links that contain brackets :w00t: .

To compensate :unsure: for the momentary :angel brain fart :} , I will supply something that is NOT smilies, AND NOT a math joke BUT a cartoon :

I always found it interesting how closely the Pythagorean equation resembles the equation of a circle centered at the origin. Of course, my Kindergarten teacher would always yell at me when I tried to fit a triangle into a circular hole. :realmad: Shows how little she knew. :whistle:

a2 + b2 = c2

x2 + y2 = r2

I presume you are joking :unsure:, if not, today's word is "trigonometry":

In any case Pi is wrong :w00t: (and this is a video, for a change):


Tau is the future! ;)
