JSH: My fear, consider this

It's so sad that I've tried to come up with simple examples for so long, and posters like "Nora Baron", Dik Winter and Arturo Magidin have successfully come back with their own posts and kept winning at convincing you all that I was wrong!

It's been so frustrating that I'm terrified that they will just get away with it again, so here's another angle as I desperately try yet again to get someone to care about what's mathematically correct knowing the kind of people who are out there to come right back and push incorrect math.

Previously I noted that I could use

P(x) = (x+8a)(x+b), and ab = 1, so P(x) = x^2 + (8a + b)x + 8.

And I considered 8a + b = 17, as then you have

8/b + b = 17, so b^2 - 17b + 8 = 0.

Now imagine any non-unit factor f in the ring of algebraic integers, like 1+i that might be a factor of b, and let b = fz, and substitute and you get

f^2 z^2 - 17fz + 8 = 0, so

f z^2 - 17z + 8/f = 0

and notice you STILL have that f on the front.

I don't want to hear that it isn't applicable because f isn't an integer, as if you will have to get a polynomial reducible over Q if you pick the right f, as that's just bogus.

The problem is that 17. For it to work, you need to have something even!

I'm so damned tired. I can't be sure if anyone will listen to me. Arturo Magidin or Dik Winter or "Nora Baron" or Rick Decker will come back like they have before, now won't they?

They'll come back and post something stupid, and wrong, and just plain evil, and you'll go along like you've done before.

It's so evil, so frustrating. Nothing matters in mathematics, mathematicians don't give a damn about the truth.

NOBODY FUCKING CARES ABOUT THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
