quote:

e is the base rate of growth shared by all continually growing processes. e lets you take a simple growth rate (where all change happens at the end of the year) and find the impact of compound, continuous growth, where every nanosecond (or faster) you are growing just a little bit.

i hope this helps, op

i discovered this on my own in 11th grade and got all excited and told my teacher what i'd discovered and how and asked him to explain it, and he was like "sorry, i know it's awesome, but i can't. try harder in class, get a phd like mine but actually use it and maybe you'll get your name in a textbook."
and i was like o_O
it kinda hosed me up for a few weeks and when i caught the flu TI-BASIC code i'd written trying to figure it out swarmed my vision in sickly black on greenish lcd.
you'd think in a sane universe all these numbers would be integers.
i don't even know.

i really want a tattoo but there isn't a single tattoo that hasn't passed my 'see if i think it's stupid in a year' test

right now i think i'm just going to find a really good artist and tell them to do whatever they want as long as it isnt butterflies/skull/roses/irish poo poo. i'll see how they feel in a year.
