Probably statements like "The LIMIT doesn't give a shit about infinity." by bird brain John Gabriel show somehow that he still doesn't understand
the definition of a limit of a sequence, of course does it need infinity, in the sense that it is a statement that involves the natural numbers
Such statements pretty much show the mathematical immaturity of JG. Further I guess this "Newsflash: Division is a finite process.
It does not carry on forever." probably hints to AP brain fartos infinity border?
Hey bird brain John Gabriel, they need you in the choose cake factory, they want you to make some pi.
