I think everyone who gets a set of SD shocks shipped should put a "I survived the Stewart Paradox" decal on their car. probably a matching t-shirt as well.

You might want to call them early am.. If you do get connected you'll be on hold for quite a bit of time so you'll have plenty of time to finish the hw.

Well it was yesterday that I emailed him. He said he would check in on it for me. I haven't heard from him yet, so if I hear back from him today it would have been tomorrow. However, if the Stewart Racing paradox applies to weekend-racer, then the fact that tomorrow has turned into today it means I should hear back from him...

...tomorrow.

Paradoxes are tough to describe in text so i'm glad you guys are actually following along.

I'm working on calcIII and Physics homework all day. Maybe i'll come up with a mathematical model for the Stewart Paradox?

The Stewart Paradox

The Problem: Your order will always ship tomorrow. Thusly, you may become infinitely close to your delivery date, but never actually reach it.

If we take the limit of t as we approach infinity, where t=the time left until your order ships, we get:



You will notice that as t approaches zero, cos(t) approaches 1. 1/0 makes no sense nor does it make sense to continually promise something will ship "tomorrow".

Graphy of Cos(t)/t

Ohh man that had me laughing pretty hard!

Can we please somehow display this on a larger scale for all to see. Like, maybe make it the mt.net splashscreen for the next month? lol
