OK. But it may become undone, since IIRC it actually might mean something, which you cannot be sauteed enough to prepare for. But since I made another 2 quarts of salsa, right now my fingers smell of you... ħumanUser talk:Human 00:53, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Right now we have articles on Irrational number, Complex numbers, Negative numbers, and Zero. There's some stated denialism of negative and complex numbers, and some issues (mentioned in the talk page, but not the article) about the number 0. I plan on getting to it tomorrow, but I was planning on merging and expanding these articles. With Zero there is that a lot of people think it was invented (discovered?) by the Mayan, but it was discovered (invented?) by them and the Indians simultaneously. Noted Scholar denies negative numbers, and there are some idiots who don't understand negative numbers. Complex numbers (and i in general) has some denialism that isn't covered in the current article. With irrational numbers my plan was include a section on Pi, which, while there is no real denialism of irrational numbers or Pi that I am aware of, there are some hilarious things about it through history (like states mandating the value of Pi, a biblical reference that makes Pi 3, and a pop culture reference that has Pi as 4). As they are, most of these number articles are atleast slightly off topic (and with little linking in), but I think merging them into an article named something like "Numbers and Innumeracy" would improve things.--Logic and Empricism (talk) 21:30, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
That sounds like a good way to go. SophieWilder 09:56, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
