I'm not impatient or anything... but shouldn't the counter go DOWN instead of UP?

:o

This is actually mathematically correct.

You see, in the equation:

V=t/2(e≈5) ⊃ T=V(e+5/2)

Where V equals Valve's timezone, Pacific Standard Time (Also my own), T equals Time, and e equals Energizer batteries, PST = time divided by 2, with Energizer batteries congruent to 5. Then the fancy sideways U means that you have to add 1 more hour to get the correct time.

No, no pretty sure the equation is 8<9[239]#t+38~1=952

No Own3d, that's the equation for determining the approximate release date of Episode 3, taking into account the variable of T. You were close, but you have to remember that a3/3 ≈ z. Where a is the number of letters in my last name, and z is the number of people waiting for Super Meat Boy to be released.

Following the equation through to the end nets you πδ/2, which rounded upwards equals V=t/2(e≈5) ⊃ T=V(e+5/2).

Nice try though, and I will +rep you for the attempt.

The difference between his equation and yours is that his actually uses correct mathematic symbols for calculation, and as such is actually a formula.

If I remember correctly the > means its an element from a collection right? :P

Gabe eat his chicken,
He's do NOT puke it.

VALVe time is ok.

Do you really think valve would stoop so low as to use real mathematical equations in their countdown timers?

It's all about mucky pigs, hats and Gabe's consumption of EP3.

@Deman: ⊃ would be either superset or proper superset, depending on the author of the text. there's a unique sign for each of the two already though, so you don't need to use it at all.
Also, ∈ means "element of (some set)"

V U T == []

The union of Valve Time and Real Time equals the Empty Set. They are disjoint.
