give 1 reason why
I dunno. I usually answer about 50-60% of Jeopardy questions correctly.
Draw your own conclusion
i dont understand the kestion
i'm highly intelligent
the reason?---it's an internet message board---people lie non-stop about the greatness that is them on these things
average... if my penis size is any indication
I only missed one question on Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader this week. I'm above average for somebody with the brain of a 15 year old.
eyem kwyte hi
"The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side."
You win the Internet for the day!
high compared to this forum??
I'm a fully functioning conqueror, thannnnkkk yooouu....
I know I'm at least smarter than the average bear...
...plus, I didn't vote for Obama.
that's actually incorrect. it's the sum of the squares equal the square of the remaining side
Movie Mistakes- or are they?
Note the following two movies mistakes. Or are they mistakes?
In The Wizard of Oz when the Scarecrow gets his diploma (instead of a brain) he says the following: The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side. This is incorrect. I suspect my readers spotted this mistake while watching the movie. If you type
"Wizard of Oz" isosceles into google you get over 2500 hits-- far less than I would have thought. (Though if you replace isosceles with pythagorean you get over 8000 hits.) So this error is somewhat known. But is it an error? Possibilities:
The writers and everyone who proofread the script did not catch this. Realize that this is not hard math. Wouldn't someone have noticed it?
One of the points of the movie is that the Scarecrow is already smart. Hence the writers are trying to show that he was smart (though didn't know math) both before and after getting the diploma, so the diploma didn't change anything except his confidence. And when it comes to math, a misplaced confidence.
Recall that the movie is all Dorothy's dream. The writers were making the point that Dorothy didn't know the proper way to state the theorem.
Edit:i think it's for right triangles only.
Im a god damn Einstein
considering some of the things i've done in my life, i'd have to say low.
I'm a moron, I don't wanna play
This is correct. I received "A"s across the board in trigonometry and am thus of very high intelligence. The fact that the teacher was drunk or high most of the time had nothing to do my exceptional marks.
