Somewhat broad category of mathematical subjects that concern discrete, rather than continuous objects. A good example of this distinction is the kind of functions you study in discrete math. Where as calculus differentiates and integrates functions defined for every value in some interval of real numbers, the kind of function examined in discrete math is often called a 'mapping', a rule that associates each members in one set with one in another. Often, these sets are finite, and so the elements are discrete, rather than continuous.more...
The topics addressed in a discrete math class vary, but it seems every curriculum has mathematical logic, set theory, formal proof techniques, number theory and probability. Other topics you might run into are abstract algebra (e.g., group theory), graph theory, linear programming, game theory
The theory that everyone is part of a league of individuals whoose dating is restricted to the league. Leagues can be determined based on a number of factors, including physical appearance, profession, income, style of dress, preferred music genre, knowledge of game, etc.
According to league theory you are sure to be rejected by someone above your league, and u would be a loser to date someone below your league.
League theory. Dat sum old bullshit fer real dawg. You can date and fuck anyone you want! This goes for everyone.
A theory to explain, when playing pool, that only one person or team can be defined as winning or losing the game.
During a game of pool, you can either win, lose, or none of the above.

Alex: "Yes, I won!"
David: "You didn't win, I just lost. Haven't you heard of the cookie theory?"
|32.||eight circuits of consciousness|
a considerable theory assumed by the philosopher Timothy Leary. The way Leary saw it, the nervous system consists of 8 potential circuits, or "gears". Four of these circuits are located in the usually active left lobe of the brain and are concerned with our terrestrial survival; the four on the right side are "extraterrestrial", reside in the usually inactive right lobe, and are for use in our future evolution.more...
This explains why the right lobe is usually inactive, and why it becomes active when one injests psychedelic drugs.
To better understand this theory, here's an in depth explaination of each circuit:
I. THE BIO-SURVIVAL CIRCUIT
This invertebrate brain was the first to evolve (2 to 3 billion years ago) and is the first activated when a human infant is born. It programs perception onto an either-or grid divided into nurturing-helpful Things (which it approaches) and noxious-dangerous Things (which it flees, or attacks). The imprinting of this circuit sets up the basic attitude of trust or suspicion which will ever after trigger approach or avoidance.
II. THE EMOTIONAL CIRCUIT
This second, more advanced bio-computer formed when vertebrates appeared and began to compete for territory (perhaps 500,000,000 B.C.). In the individual, this bigger tunnel-reality is activated when the DNA master-tape triggers the metamorphosis from crawling to walking. As every parent knows, the toddler is n...
|33.||The Axon Theory|
The Axon Theory is kind of the video game versions of Jupming the Shark and Nuking the Fridge, it means that a Video Game series that has gone into major crappy meltdown.
Mortal Kombat Armageddon was the lameest 7th sequel to hit the video game shelves because of the lame fataitlies they have < so I considered this as a part of "The Axon Theory". I also name this word after one of the hoverboards in "Unreal Tournament 3".
|34.||of course theory|
When something that could possibly goes wrong - in fact - does go wrong .
Therefore making someone say (to themselves), "of course", in a sarcastic tone.
"Badass! I just got GTA IV for PC and I have better than recommended system requirements!"
"...And its laggy as hell..." OF COURSE

The revision game is played by students in the days before a major exam, in which everyone lies about the amount of revision they have done, typically claiming to have "not opened a book".
It may be a form of psychological warfare, designed to put others off their guard by appearing to be less competitive than one really is.
An alternative theory is that the revision game is a more co-operative phenomenon, where everyone lies about how much revision they have done to boost the confidence of their peers, and their peers do the same in return.
For whatever reason, all students are compelled to play the revision game, despite a mutual understanding that it is all just a bluff.
Matt claims he's not started revising for the exam tomorrow, but I know he's just playing the revision game.
Of course I told him that I haven't opened a book either, but he won't be fooled.
