sqrt(cos(x))cos(300x)+sqrt(abs(x))-0.7)(4-x*x)^0.01, sqrt(6-x^2), -sqrt(6-x^2) from -4.5 to 4.5




"Was that so hard?"

YES



I feel like I've just been rick-rolled. Don't google it unless you're a big valentine's day fan.



Today I learned, Hacker News dislikes short links. Take that bit.ly, goo.gl, t.co etc...


Cute.


It does not match any documents.


Don't use IE


I'm using Firefox.



What's wrong with having the title link to:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=sqrt(cos(x))cos(300x)%2Bsqr...


And what's wrong with a short link, sir?


How would I know where it goes? A porn site? Phishing site?


Ah, I thought there was an undeclared pledge of ethics here at HN. Never mind.


There is, but doesn't mean that people can't abuse it.

Shorteners are frowned upon because they can be used to hide nastyware, and aren't needed; HN visually truncates links that are super long anyhow.


Point noted amicably.
