Mathematicians spend a lot of time studying what happens when things get either infinitely large, or infinitely small. Calculus is typically the first time that students are asked to study behaviors in that infinitely small space, by taking Limits.

In short, a Limit is defined as the value a function takes when approached infinitely close. In continuous functions, say f(x)=x, the limit is simply the value of the function evaluated at that point. However, for discontinuous functions, we must study what happens when the value is approached from both the left and the right. If those values disagree, then the function is said to have no limit at that point.

Example of a limit that exists on a discontinuous function:

Consider the function f(x) = x^2. If we remove the point (0,0), then as we travel along the parabola from the left, we have a decreasing value that gets infinitely close to 0. So, the "Limit from the left" is 0. Likewise, if we travel down the parabola from the right side, then we get infinitely close to 0. Since these two numbers agree, we say that the Limit at (0,0) = 0, despite having removed that point from our curve.

Example of Limits that do not exist:


Not all discontinuous functions have limits that agree on both sides. In the case of the first graph, f(x)=tan(x), look at the point x = pi/2. On the left side, there is an asymptote that shoots up to infinity, while on the right side, it comes up from negative infinity. Sadly, positive and negative infinity do not wrap-around, so the two limits disagree and we say that the limit does not exist at that point.

In the second graph, we see that from the left our parabola approaches the value y=0, while on the right it approaches the value y=1. Again, these do not agree, so the limit does not exist.



Board Game Question:
Do you have board game limits? For example, do you refuse to play any game that takes longer than X minutes? Is there a specific play count that you refuse to game with? Any specific distance you won't travel to game?

The successor to Take it Easy...didn't really seem to be as successful/popular as Take it Easy. Adds a way to play with two boards, with light/dark small board, and higher numbers.

I had it, but felt it didn't add much more to the original or even made it more involved than such a game should be.

Limitless

While my Wife and Sister-in-law watched Cinderella on blu-ray, my Brother and I decided to watch this action adventure from 2011 on his PVR. The premise of the film is that there's a new drug, which can grant the user the ability to utilise 100% of his brain (referring to the urban legend that humans can only use about 10% of their brain)... This turns the central character, Eddie Morra, a slobbish, un-proven writer, played to perfection by Bradley Cooper, into a high flying, over-achieving financial analyst... naturally the drug wears off, so one of the first problems Eddie encounters is that of supply... finally, once he's manage to get a supply of this drug, he begins to burn too brightly and comes to the attention of some powerful people, including Carl Van Loon, played by Robert De Niro. While the film is pretty much Bradley Cooper's vehicle, there are some good supporting performances from the likes of Abbey Cornish (Morra's girlfriend), Johnny Whitworth (Morra's ex-wife's brother) and Anna Friel (Morra's ex-wife).

The idea is interesting, and it is well developed on screen, with some very nice cinematography... The modern day New York setting is believable and works very well within the context of the film, while the plot has some nice twists, and some predictable outcomes. Sadly, however, I felt the ending was very weak.

Despite the ending, the rest of the movie is very good and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a modern action adventure with a tinge of sci-fi.

Me, moments ago wrote:
I just had a talk with a friend re: trick takers, and how they were, once you played enough, a sort of language. The different games that are trick takers, are in essence dialects (some being more intelligible than others), but eventually we all start to understand and communicate in an oddly nonverbal way, and it's glorious when we do.

The most recent example of this was over the holidays, when we played 5p nyet. The bidding ended up, more often than not, in actual guffawing. Not because of any jokes we cracked, or other sort of non-card-facilitated communication, but because we knew at least several of the subtleties expressed by each bid, and some of them were cheeky, or desperate, or vindictive, or any of a variety of emotionally chargedness.

What made it even better is that it would not have been possible had we not all been somewhat proficient card players. I even forgot, not having seen my friends in a while, that they were seasoned card players, so at one point I piped up "Are you sure you meant to overtrump? Do you know what that means?" She shot me a look, and her teammate replied "Oh, I think she knows exactly what that means." And we all started laughing again.


7. Let's talk trick takers. I don't mean to be open ended, but they're just such a wonderful niche that doesn't often get the love it should on BGG. To get the ball rolling... I haaaated pi mal pflaumen. If I'm going to play a game where all you do is play to intention, I'm going to pick up nicht die bohne.

Turns out the colors in this game are really hard to mix. It looks like a bit of a mess but I had fun putting this together.
