    FlyingCar, 16^(1/2) is both -4 and 4, but sqrt(16) is 4. Roots are a function, and therefore can’t have two solutions.

    I was answering a question on Yahoo! Answers math section and somebody was supposed to find the approximate values of various square roots using a method of guessing and testing. I pointed out that most of them could be solved without guessing if you knew a few square roots.

    sqrt(75) = 5 * sqrt(3), and if you know that sqrt(3) = 1.723, why guess? But that comes from years of doing trig and looking up the roots and logs and such in the tables at the back of the book, which no one has to do any more, because there are sophisticated calculators.

    @Olongapojoe
    You pay me six figures so that I can afford to spend four hours a day at the gym, plus a personal trainer and chef.

    I guarantee you I’ll be able to take off 20 pounds per month.

    Choco Tacos are The Awesome! (Available at most convenience stores and in your grocer’s freezer.)

    It’s not a bad example to buy the kid a new ice cream. It is a bad example to make a decision and then change it when it affects you.

    Don’t forget the societal value of hot,buff guys in tight spandex.

    No one mentions Canary in a Coal Mine or Di Doo Doo Doo or Walking in Your Footsteps or King of Pain? And without King of Pain there’d be no Weird Al’s King of Suede.

    There’s a sale on our gabardine suits today. It’s the same old sale as yesterday.

    @EdwardWhite – My 2006 Ford Expedition allows you to lock all of the doors from the front passenger seat.

    Aw, man. For a moment I thought someone was actually rebooting Sliders.
