Well, there's three votes for purple. If the rest of you guys want to see a different color then you're going to have to come to an agreement.

Sparkly fizzly gold.

If this can be made and looks good, I'm totally in favour.

Blacker than the blackest black times infinity! Grin
Blacker than [undefined], you say? Cool
(click to show/hide)

He probably meant "0*∞" as short for

lim[ f(x) * g(x) ]
x->a

where

lim f(x) = 0
x->a

and

lim g(x) = ∞
x->a

And then it is not necessarily undefined.
Right - it's not undefined if you specify the functions.

If you don't specify the functions, then f(x) itself is undefined.

Right - it's not undefined if you specify the functions.

If you don't specify the functions, then f(x) itself is undefined.

I think "unknown" is more precise here. We can determine whether it is defined or not once we know what the functions actually are. If, for example, a = 0, f(x) = x, g(x) = 1/x², then we have

lim x  =  0
x->0

and

lim 1/x²  =  ∞
x->0

however

lim[ x * (1/x²) ]  =
x->0

= lim 1/x
   x->0

which is undefined, as that limit does not exist.

So in conclusion, we need Dragon to define a, f and g to proceed.

If something is not defined, then it is undefined.

Well there are orders of infinity so the limits are defined.  To expound:

Infinity times infinity would seem to be larger than infinity.  In other words it's a higher order of infinity.

And also as 0 times any number is 0 and infinity times any number is infinity it would seem there is some special relation between the concepts of zero and infinity.

This implies there must be orders of zero also.  As I specified blacker than the blackest black this would imply a higher order of zero, which is to say a zero that is more zero than zero.  eg: 0 times 0 like infinity times infinity.

Now as we have a higher order zero times by a lower order infinity we're going to be left with a low order zero which in this case is our good old number line zero that equates to black.

So blacker than the blackest black times infinity is really just your garden variety shade of black Grin

Also I'd like to let the f(x) equal to a small mango...

Purple wins, but you people are crazy if you think you can keep me out of Photoshop. The purple voters did not come to an agreement on which shade of purple they wanted, so I turned purple into a magenta. Here is the result:




Every image you see other than the first one is part of an explosion animation. I made a new projectile by hand because the other one was kind of ugly.

Second one is better, first shot looks odd, like a button. Colour is also nicer in second one.

I would, but the Colour Out of Space is way cooler.
