Who is the most intelligent human ever lived and why is it Gauß?
fundamental results in
My bachelor exam based on Disquisitiones Arithmeticae. Just recognized he was younger when he wrote the hole fucking book as me when I wrote me redicioulus paper.
Von Neumann called Gauss the greatest mathematician of all time. Also, Von Neumann's parents were very rich, and had access to the best tutors and resources for his education. Gauss's parents were working class and illiterate.
OP here. You sir are an idiot. I am German and I can ensure you that ß is still common in the german language. To write e.g. "Fuss" instead of "Fuß" is just false and would lead to irritations for the reader. Only if special characters would lead to problems it is usual to write "ss"instead of "ß". Such is the case by writing emails to an non german or at an ATM but it's the exception.
Just because you're language doesn't have any special characters doesn't mean they're outdated.
You're second statement is bullshit too. It still is "das Mädchen", see
"Die Mädchen" would be plural. There's no german in the world how would say "Die Mädchen holt sich ein Eis." It sounds completly wrong and it is also completly wrong.
I don't know where you have you're information from, but it's completly bullshit just as you.

>Hears moaning upstairs, quickly bolts up
>Guy who was fucking his wife on the table jumps out of the window, and pulls his pants up while running away
>Nobel finds a piece of crumpled paper with proofs scribbled all over it
>Hates mathematicians for all eternity
>Just because you're language doesn't have any special characters doesn't mean they're outdated
>You're second statement is bullshit too
I am language, I am statement. Hear me roar.
Also, since you are a native German, you can't truly provide insight on why certain words are certain genders. Mädchen ist ein Neutrum, weil es eine Verkleinerungsform ist. Man könnte auch behaupten, dass Mädchen so ist, denn es beschreibt ein Kind.
Eszetts are not outdated. Go to a German news website and you will see them everywhere. Also, for nouns relating to people in German, word gender often corresponds with actual gender. However, for diminutives (English examples: booklet = small book, miniwindow = small window), German uses a neuter gender. Some extra German examples: das Rotkäppchen = the little red riding hood, das Männchen = little man.
What is the Anschluss.
Oh you mean all those big nosed kikes who got all their education from the German universities and then ran off and sold all of our knowledge to the Americans and Russians. Ok.
>German scientists are German until they move to the US, at which point they become Jews
>Germany is first physical and mathematical power in the world up until the Jews leave, and then gets buttfucked
You're right actually, I can't fucking name one because it turns out all "German" scientists of value at the time were Austrian, Polish, Hungarian or Jewish. So much for the masterrace.
UK fag here. I really fucking hate when intellectual discussions (even when they are off topic) get to mentioning 2nd WW and Jews whenever a German identifies himself.
Pathetic little children, keep you bullshit in your playpens.
you live under a rock or something?
What about Gauß, Hilbert, Riemann, Klein, Hecke, Heisenberg, Hund, v. Braun, etc.
At this time there was a reformation of german spelling. Some words which was spelled with ß before, are now spelled with ss, such as "daß" and "dass". But this was no attempt to ban ß. It should only make the german language more in intuitive.
For us that aren't Nazi descendants, it matters little which one you pick. In fact, it only matters as much as one character.
My mistake, my previous image was to complex.

Bollywood is leading the world in movies in some aspects, Hollywood in others. You shouldn't be posting on /sci/ if you don't realize this. If you feel the need to "defend 'murica on the Internet" please go to >>>/pol/
I don't think anyone is eligible to officially change anyones name to something else.
You might spell it "Gauss" because it's easier to write if you don't know the "ß". Still you can't officially change a name.
Still I agree that we shouldn't be nitpicky if someone on the internet doesn't spell it correctly, because they might not have a keyboard with the "ß".
The same way, I can't write a chinese name the correct way without putting a lot effort into it.
On a similar note, in my opinion it seems very respectless how some peoples names are pronounced in other countires. Often nobody puts effort into learning the correct pronunciation.
For example "Goethe" is not pronounced "go ithi", it's "Göte". Or "de Broglie" is pronounced like "de Brai".
Ragarding the OPs question: If I had to choose I'd agree. It's unbelievable what Gauß achieved for various fields in mathematics.
The stat said leads the world in movies.
Not which country has the highest revenue per movie. I can understand your confusion.
To better understand this, take a quick look at the other countries and explain whether the information presented is concerned with an amount of something or the dollar value.
>being a self hating american or canacuck
Im not even american you mong.
Why the fuck would you measure things relatively? The most objective way to measure how well movies do is to look at the profits they make
Hermann Weyl is the correct answer
JOURNALIST: And now I want to ask you something more: They tell me that you and Einstein are the only two real sure-enough high-brows and the only ones who can really understand each other. I won’t ask you if this is straight stuff for I know you are too modest to admit it. But I want to know this – Do you ever run across a fellow that even you can’t understand?
JOURNALIST: This will make a great reading for the boys down at the office. Do you mind releasing to me who he is?
GauB lived before "masterrace" became a meme. And he didn't live during WW2, unless you believe the theory itt that he was an immortal ubiquitous alchemist. Yes, I want to believe too but that's just not serious.
Look up the names and origins of most famous scientists who fled the Nazi during WW2. Then see how long it takes you to find one that is German and doesn't belong to one of those four categories.
Protip before you start: Von Neumann was Hungarian, Schrödinger and Gödel were Austrian (though also Czeh at some point for Gödel), Pauli had a Jewish father (which is enough to make him Jewish to the eyes of mister masterrace above).
I was exaggerating to piss the other guy off, but that's no low bait, it's true for the most part.
Isaac Newton is no doubt the most intelligent human to ever grace this earth with his greatness. Also, any Einsteinfags out there should now Einstein totally had sex with a ton of chicks, which automatically makes him nowhere near autistic enough to be the most intelligent human ever.
P.S. who even cares about Gauß, or how its spelled?
Yep. He should have chosen between mathematics and politics. Can't do both. What if they could have made some bubble where he thought things worked as he wanted them to. Maybe then he would be pacified and be able to do some awesome work.
Yes, they had the most explosive growth the past few years, specifically in their tech sectors, and from Shanghai investing over there. They're doing pretty okay.
It's important to realize that economic growth on a macro scale is measured in mostly single digits, so don't expect anything particularly significant in a year, but over a few years? Better get them bootstraps, bud.
In terms of achievement, probably Euler. In absolute potenital terms probably some poor fuck who lived hundreds or thousands of years ago and died anoymously toiling away in a primitive farm or something due to lack of opportunities.
I study in Göttingen at the university where Gauß was professor. Did you know that after his dead his brain was extracted and preserved in a jar so that they could study why he was so smart.
Not long ago, they discovered that it wasn't Gauß's brain all along. Someone mixed it up with another brain, heaven knows how long ago. All the time they examined the wrong brain.
What department are you in at Goettingen? Are you a German national or an international student? I am thinking on possibly applying for a structured PhD programme in the future there (those available in English), so I hope you don't mind these off topic questions
Just got past Gauss' Lemma in my notes, and now it's all talking about torsions and shit and it's just making me think of testicular torsion and I can't stop feeling uncomfortable. Fuck Gauss.
Not noticing that there's something off about a brain for years is not something you get in studies with a reasonable N, given that you have a bunch of legitimate genius brains to compare it to. Two separate N = 1 studies are stull just two separate N = 1 studies. (Note that N is not additive: you don't analyze and draw conclusions for each datapoint separately)
I'm working on my Master now. I can't complain. Göttingen is a really nice uni, especially if I compare it to storys about other unis I heard. At least I can say that about the scientific institiutions.
The admanistration is friendly and helpful, the campus is well-equipped (at least for the needs on a mathematican) and the city is "klein aber fein".
May you should also read
Dankeschön, mein Deutsche freund. Ich bin ein student aus England und ich habe in Bremen für zwei semester gestudieren, aber mein studium ist auf Englisch. Darum meine Deutsch ist nicht so gut.
Took me embarrassingly long to write that. Oh dear. And I definitely want to improve my german, learning the language is quite rewarding. I study Biochem not maths, but I should also improve my maths if I decide on post-grad study.
Gern geschehen : )
I dont want to know how much it hurts to read my text for an englishman ; )
In math they changed the language of instruction of the higher semesters into english, so I guess they changed it in chemistry too.
