Re: Greatest Number Ever (73)

If we assume that 73 is the greatest number ever, then it follows that there exists no number n such that n > 73 . Now, without loss of generality, consider the number 85. 85 > 73 is evidently true, and so there is at least one number which is greater than 73. Thus our assumption is incorrect, and ...

Re: SO doesn't allow you to take pictures of other team's wo

My opinion is that this policy has a clause to waive compliance if the photos are intended to be posted publicly (i.e. on the Image Gallery). In other words, you can take photos and videos, but only if you post them here.

But then I might be biased.

Re: Sumo Bots C

The signature is a general thing for everyone, not just for me.

Give it a shot. If you're making sticky wheels, chances are that they'll stick to whatever mold you use too, so be prepared to extract your wheels by destroying the mold.

Again, balloons and condoms are cheap.

Re: Sumo Bots C

In response to a PM: Por-A-Mold S111 or S2020 as well as their appropriate mold release compound are available from art & crafts stores like Blick Art Materials. They're expensive and require extensive setup with molds and probably need custom wheels as well. There is also RTV (room temperature ...

Re: Staircase of Wasted Time (See how much time you waste he

I updated the data fetcher on SoWT to include the new Event Help as well as archives as useful activities, so everyone should begin to get a slight bump in their useful stats. Also, I'll probably eventually switch to monthly stats rather the cumulative stats we have running now.
