    Does calculus explain your very own time-piece, or is it not that adavanced yet?

    Why do we have to put up with time that travels around an ormamental disc?

    Why not design watches that explain integral features of calculus, "for educational purposes", as a "social design of intelligence"?


    if ever there was a time for opportunity, it is when opportunity has yet to define THIS "time"

    Watches are just meant to tell the time. Watches are made by companies, which means they must be marketable, or they company won't make them. I'd doubt there's much of a market for calculus watches. If you want to learn calculus, read a textbook. If you want to know the time, look at your watch.

    This post makes you come off as semi-arrogant, in a sort of way: ‘‘Oo, look at me, I know how to read a ‘calculus watch.’ I'm so much better than the rest of you who just want to know the time...’’

    Besides, what the f××k would you put on a calculus watch anyway? And when you were done making it, could it still be called a watch?




    Regards,
