Mass is neither an intrinsic property, or an element

Mass is just an accumulation, or body of matter, and inertia is its
measure.

Don, with the intrinsic property of stupidity, wrote:

Admit it, Don: You're posting here for the laughs, yeah?

Or do you really think anybody still believes you?

After you stated that "2=1" and "1/(x/y) and y/x are not equal"?

BWA-HAA-HAA-HAA-HAA-HAA-HAA-HAA!

I think that the 2=1 thing was a joke. Also, ARE 1/(2/0) and 0/2 the
same thing?

No, I think Don was serious when he wrote:

| No, it would be [(vt-vt)=s/t=ft: Written more precisely as ft^2/s;
| which makes it equal to 2w/g; which is the mass of the body with a
| weight of w.

More errors in one paragraph than you can shake a stick at...

OK, me bad. I should have mentioned: for x,y <>0. However, even with
this restrictions, Don still believes - though he's been told otherwise
untold times - this equation to be invalid:

|> The question is this: If you have a unit of the form
|> 1 X/(Y/Z) is this the same as 1 X*Z/Y?
|
|> The answer is yes, no matter what X, Y and Z are.
|
|NOT if either X, Y, or Z is a ratio.

Some other instances where Don showed his outstanding commandment of

Date Don Correct
04/11 m=w/(g/2) m=w/g
04/11 ft=s/t Ft=m*s/t
31/10 2w/g ... is the mass m=w/g
31/10 [(vt-vt)=s/t=ft v(t)-v(i)=s/t=Ft/m
04/10 ft^2/s=w/g Ft^2/2s=w/g
23/09 (vt-vi)/t^2=32'/sec^2 (vt-vi)/t=32'/sec^2
08/09 s=(g/2)t s=(g/2)t^2
05/09 (vt-vi)/t=2s/t^2=g/2 (vt-vi)/t=2s/t^2=g
27/08 ft/(vt-vi)=ft^2/s ft/(vt-vi)=ft^2/2s
23/08 a/2-16'/sec^2 g/2=16ft/sec^2
23/08 a-(vt-vi)/t a=(vt-vi)/t
12/06 g=(vt-vi)/t^2 g=(vt-vi)/t
12/06 (m)=ft/s/t m=Ft^2/2s
07/06 (m)=wa/fg m=F/a or m=w/g
28/05 1 slug = 32 ft sec^2/32 ft 1 slug = 32 lbf sec^2/32 ft
27/05 s=2(vt-vi)/t s=1/2(vt-vi)*t
21/05 1 slug = 1 lbf s^2/foot; _Not_ 1 slug = 1 lbf / (1 ft/s^2)
Don didn't even realize both equations are the same.

Personally, I believe Don is beyond any hope and lives in his own
little (and non-functional) world of physics. He won't stop posting,
so all you can do is mock him...

No; the first is meaningless WRT the reals and the second is 0. Now,
if you extend the reals then the answer will depend on just how you
extend them.

As an example, there is an extension of the reals called the two-point
compactification. Think of it as the reals augmented by +oo and -oo.
Now, if you want to extend the arithmetic operations you immediately
run into the question of whether you want 1/0 to be +oo or -oo. Pretty
much any extension of the arithmetic operations is going to violate
rules that you are used to relying on.

Here my friends is where the whole house of cards falls: According to
"dimensional analysis", we must be able to cancel the superfluous
units. It can be done with 1 slug = 1 lbf s^2/foot; but not with 1
slug = 1 lbf / (1 ft/s^2).

Don showed his lack of understanding once again and wrote:

OK, let's get this straight:

1 slug = 1 slug
can be replaced with
1lbf * s^2/ft = 1 lbf / (1 ft/s^2)
divide by 1 lbf
1 s^2/ft = 1 / (1 ft/s^2)
device by 1 s^2
1 / ft = 1 / s^2 * 1 / (1 ft/s^2)
1 / ft = 1 / (1 s^2 * 1 ft/s^2)
1 / ft = 1 / ft
multiply with 1 ft
1 = 1

Now, Don, where's the error?
