I think that is the "joke", that one misunderstands the mathematical formula.
I don't think I even know inf+ and inf-, but +inf and -inf only. Therefore with little to no mathematical background you could think that inf+ was something beyond inf.
Oh, the +inf and inf+ is just different notation. I've always used the former, even if it sometimes clashes a lil' bit with the arrow coming from the variable (-inf is usually a line that impaled a triangle, +inf also adds small straight segment to the brochette).
"∞ +/ infinity +" not as in the meaning of "beyond infinity" because even the enhanced editions are not beyond the Infinity Engine. But "infinity +" as in an enhanced kind of infinity.
But should Beamdog ever create their own engine then the name would fit all the more.
I spent three weeks in Norway and by the end of it I realised I could pretty much understand about 2 words out of 3... But I really had trouble trying to talk back... Everyone speaks English anyway if you shout loud enough...
@thacobell yeah, pretty much any word ending in tion is from french. Almost all of our latin roots come that way. My favourite example is that all the names for animals come from saxon but the meat from the same animals comes from french, only the lords regularly ate meat, the peasants were mostly vegetarian with the odd bird or rabbit thrown in.
"By the way, Skatan, is it true that Danish, Norwegians and Swedes understand each other without translating?"
Sorry for late reply, been working too much this week. Well it's kinda true. Some people will indeed understand but some accents within each country can be very thick and coarse, so makes it quite difficult. In most of the major cities, people talk a mixed accent making it less specific so it is easier to understand. But for people like me, who are notoriously bad at languages, I can't even understand some of the Swedish accents :-/ Especially the southerners. Their version of our common language is completely alien to me.
@Wubble: That comment about the animals and their respective meat was one of the most interresting and insightful comments I've ever read on internet. It's for gems like that I just love forums like this! Thank you!
Haha, so True Skatan. When I was really Young I met a kid from the south, who I played with. When I got home I told My mom I found a friend who spoke another language, but it Actually turned out that was just his accent. Hilarious.
About accents... The other day I was coming back home from a party and I met an englishman. Yes sir, english folk in Buenos Aires. Had to ask him around 2 times of each thing he said to understand him o.0 He invited me and my friend a beer (it was around 7am mind you) but we just wanted to go home (besides I don't drink).
