I heard this problem earlier this year and thought it was pretty neat. Since there have been various people posting math problems recently, I thought I'd throw one into the mix:

Assume A1 indicates A_1 (it's easier to read this way):

Three segments A1A2, B1B2, C1C2 are constructed on (different) sides of an equilateral triangle. Extend the lines A2B1, B2C1, C2A1 so that they form a triangle. Prove that the lengths of A2B1, B2C1, and C2A1 are proportional to the sides of this triangle.

Wow. Sorry you guys (OP excluded) cannot enjoy the natural beauty of math and life.

Doing math is fun, but I'm not much of a fan for geometry.

I don't have a pencil...and am too lazy to find one.

I'm too lazy to use my brain right now

Soulofheaven...I remember you!

Your sn always scared me.

By Soulofheaven8 (Soulofheaven8) on Sunday, July 18, 2004 - 11:32 pm: Edit

lol yeah. I'm quite an old-timer on CC, almost as ancestral as xiggi (maybe that's an exaggeration..)

I remember you from that "I'm inviting 10000 girls to my beach volleyball party" thread; very astute comments from you.

what's this brain u speak of?

By Soulofheaven8 (Soulofheaven8) on Sunday, July 18, 2004 - 11:37 pm: Edit

you mean you don't have one?

By Magoo (Magoo) on Sunday, July 18, 2004 - 11:42 pm: Edit

no, why would i need one? come on it's just a waste of space...i like to keep more practical things up there like my wallet, my pet hamster, some times i rent out my empty head as a walking locker during the school year...also im pretty popular with the stoners...no one thinks to check for a bong inside someones head.

By Soulofheaven8 (Soulofheaven8) on Sunday, July 18, 2004 - 11:50 pm: Edit

sometimes my brain gets rather overloaded with burdensome things, mind if I rent some of your available space up there?

bahahahahaa...i charge extra for insanity, or really sad thoughts...that comes to a total of $5 a day. :)

hmmm interesting entrepreneurial venture!! :)

By Magoo (Magoo) on Monday, July 19, 2004 - 09:46 pm: Edit

hmmm...i guess we killed this thread...or it was doomed to begin with!!! (HA, math during the summer who are u kidding).

By Jenesaispas (Jenesaispas) on Monday, July 19, 2004 - 09:50 pm: Edit

Math during the summer <b>IS</b> fun. Grrr!!

IF you say otherwise I might have to add you to my collection in the basement.

By Geniusash (Geniusash) on Monday, July 19, 2004 - 09:54 pm: Edit

Math is fun ALL the time. But especially when I'm having a brain scream. Def-when my brain craves a certain activity (usually math, sometimes logic puzzles, sometimes writing) and proceeds to scream at me.

By Magoo (Magoo) on Monday, July 19, 2004 - 10:21 pm: Edit

WHOA...sorry folks

do u do this when u are bored?

By Ubercollegeman (Ubercollegeman) on Monday, July 19, 2004 - 11:59 pm: Edit

If you're not good at math, I don't see the point in responding just to be a bunch of flamers.

By Magoo (Magoo) on Tuesday, July 20, 2004 - 12:01 am: Edit

no one was really that insulting...

By Ubercollegeman (Ubercollegeman) on Tuesday, July 20, 2004 - 12:04 am: Edit

Not insulting, but the first three replies were just pointless.

By Magoo (Magoo) on Tuesday, July 20, 2004 - 12:12 am: Edit

OPINION!

i thought they were just being sarcastic and funny...its three posts to a thread that probably wouldn't have gotten off the ground in THE CAFE (take it to high school life where people are looking for those topics)
