This is correct as far as I know. Usually it's written "o'clock" with the apostrophe standing in for the missing letters.

Topic: Is Mathematics a science?
Posted: Thursday, July 22, 2010 4:05:34 PM
The cool thing about mathematics is that it can be approached like a science (in which you're trying to discover things that are already there) but really, it's just a set of relationships between ideas and the study of it basically says "given that these things over here are true, what else can we prove is true?" It actually doesn't require any nature to exist at all, since it's just ideas - if nature changes, the idea of how it worked before is still the same, and all those rules are still derivable.

Really, math doesn't exist to describe real phenomena. It just turns out to be really useful for doing that.

Math is pretty cool :)

Anthony:- You frequently bring up the female goddess of the Hindu faith. Therefore, if, in the Hindu faith, it is true that there is a female goddess, then, do Indian women have the right of the DOMINANT ROLE in the family household?



My name isn't Anthony but yes you are exactly right. Indian women are dominant and fearsome and can set you on fire with their mind and all household decision are deferred to them out of fear of divine wrath.

It's just text stylization. It's not accepted in traditional written English and it's kind of a pain to read when it's in a block of otherwise easily legible text.
