"Time is money" IS the tyranny of your corporate masters, NOT truth.

It is better to say you can spend units of time and units of energy to create units of money. Aranna's Formula: T*(E+R)=M. See math is fun!

There are SO many better ways to spend units of time than working...

Resistance is futile. You will accept "Time is Money." All will be assimilated.

Mathematical proof that women are evil:

Theorem 0.1 (Women require Time and Money) Let W be any woman, T be time, and M be money. Then W = T ∗ M.

Theorem 0.2 (Time is Money) Let T be time and M be money. Then T = M.

Proof W = T ∗ M and T = M. Therefore W = M ∗ M, and thus W = M^2.

Theorem 0.3 (Money is the root of all Evil) Let M be money and E be evil. Then M = √E.

Proof W = M^2 and M = √E. Therefore W = (√E)^2 and subsequently W = E.

I had about 25 years of muscle memory to undo, and it took me around a year until I was doing it consistently. Honestly, as long as the spacing is consistent, it doesn't bother me, but some publishers think it's some kind of unforgivable faux pas. To me it just makes more sense when using proportional fonts, given that the space between words will always be clearly denoted.

On the other hand, some more traditional editors (read: grognards/hipsters) insist on submitting manuscripts in a monospace typeface (like Courier/Courier New*, the font used for the posting/editing window on the Paizo forums) for ease of reading. In that case, consistency is usually the rule, unless you're dealing with the kind of person who calls computers "electric typewriters," in which case they'll probably want you to double-space after punctuation.

*When I was in high school, everyone would always use Courier New for term papers because out of all the default Microsoft Word fonts, it has the most amount of space between characters, thereby allowing the careful student to stretch the page count by 1 or 2 pages.

IIRC math, W = (√E)^2 has two solutions, W = E, and W = –E...

Does that mean that women are evil or good? Is G = –E, or is it not symmetrical like that? Another answer that causes more questions...


I had typewriting lesson, but thankfully, I was already well versed in writing on computer by then - primarily from writing simple programs in BASIC and other uses of computer, not text-writing, so I wasn't infected by double-spaces.

I had to take a high school keyboarding class (circa early '00s) on software from the late '80s. It was a simple switch from double-spacing with two fingers to double-spacing with all ten.

I really wish I had learned how to do coding and stuff like that when I was growing up. Here I am, pushing the big 3-0, but with the computer skills of someone twice my age.

I know you intended this as a joke but it is incredibly sexist. Would you make "proofs" that your coworkers skin color makes them evil? Or that a persons sexual preference makes them evil? Would you?

I never learned anything beyond the bare-bone basics (or more accurately BASIC) of programming*. It's about 20 years since I wrote anything resembling program, though it gives me some slight grasp of structures of programming. Learning basic bits of html was the only step further since that time.

Reduction in being taught math didn't helped. Having an obnoxious older brother who was much into programming didn't help either.

I might have been wrong on that. I am not sure if squaring the square root negates it before the problem kicks in...

For W = X^2, X can be positive or negative number. However, for results of square root to be negative, the number under the root has to be imaginative one... I don't know much else about imaginary numbers so I can't say for sure.

Coincidentally, around that time I had typewriter-writing lessons in my economic post-high school.

The square root of a negative number is imaginary. The square root of a non-negative number is real. The square of a negative or positive real number is a positive real number. The square of an imaginary number is a negative real number.

If W=X^2, then X=√W. If W is a non-negative real number, then X has two solutions, a positive real number and a negative real number. If W is a negative real number, again there are two solutions, a positive imaginary number and a negative imaginary number. An imaginary number is denoted as Ri, where R is a real number and i is the square root of -1.

It's basically a bar where everything contains bacon.
