The answer is obvious, and describes this thread:

Stupid + half of stupid = Stupid.

is stupidity quantifiable? otherwise, stupid = infinitely stupid; thus, not valid.

on a side note....stupid is as stupid does

There we go.

Just so you're aware..

you just helped me solve an equation that is deemed unsolvable by the math community.

now i just have to figure out how to place it together and make sense out of it.

sigh I all most had it.
I think it has some thing to do with containment.
but I lost the thought as soon as I had it.
well I am playing a computer on line game and reading this!
and my dong keeps punting hit paw on the mouse.
he needs a walk. god its cold here --6.

can you explain it more?
is it number or physics or some thing else?

or some thing silly!
like a full glass and you add 1/2 a glass.
it can not contain it!?!?!?

Perhaps it is a strand of replicating DNA if you think about it. you have one strand ("something"), and when it replicates it splits and each side builds half of a strand (+1/2 of "something) as a template for the other half. When this process is complete there is still a DNA strand ("something").

A number that represents a phasor for which the frequency is such that adding 1/2 results in a full 2Pi turn of the phasor.

You cannot add any nonzero number to something and get the same number.

due to an error on my part that thread is basically meaningless.

The question still stands:

q = q + 1/2

?

According to the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy and the answer is 42.

Don't ask me to explain it though...it only works when the infinite improbability drive is engaged.

if your question would be F(q)=F(q+a), it's possible; in your case -- No
Eternity is common answer, but it will give you Nothing in any way
