See those two pins? Well today I'm going to... stick them in you.

Ok, let me come clean: Mr.Wizard is actually an alias of mine... I'm glad I can finally confess. ― Sjoerd C. de Vries

No, I'm Spatac... I mean, Mr.Wizard! ― R.M

I'm Mr.W, and so's my wife! ― acl


@Spartacus, it was not fixable. ― rcollyer

check again; I just fixed it. :-p ― Spartacus

It's not that easy to do the untangling even manually though. – Szabolcs

Maybe you could turn it into a puzzle and let other people do the untangling :-) – Heike

I could make a web based game, and feed all my graphs to the visitors.
SE is a big game, isn't it? :D – Szabolcs

I was tempted to edit your title: "Do rules rule?" But my nose is still bleeding as a result of a limerick. – belisarius

comment How can I graph an equation with five variables?
Different tools for different tasks. I assumed that expr would be reused with different values. Pre-evaluation is a nice alternative interpretation. +1

comment An argument pattern that my function can treat as Times[constant, variable]
m_goldberg, I know your edit was intended to be helpful, and the vast majority of your edits are, but I think it has been discussed that fixing syntax such as func(a, b) = . . . is a bad idea because the that is often a problem that needs to be addressed in the answers rather than "swept under the rug" as it were.

I believe several of those are part of Sage; do you use it?

comment Why does Assuming[…] work in one case but not in another?
To other users: I'm sure this is a duplicate; I don't expect any votes for my answer but it was faster to post than to search, I'm tired, and a targeted example is probably more useful to the user anyway. Please close if/when a duplicate is found. Thanks.
