EDIT: Since the talk section wasn't very active, I decided to correct the page.

I think the definition of 'unary operation' on Wikipedia is incorrect (or rather, incomplete).

It defines a unary operation as the function f: A → A. This means a value in the set of A results in another value in the set of A when the operator is applied. So, according to this definition, a unary operation must be an endofunctor (function mapping a type to the same type).

There are well-known operators that do not conform to this definition. For example, the length operator ||v|| produces a scalar value from a vector value. The operator's operand is a value in the set of vectors, and its result is the set non-negative real numbers.

The first sentence on the Wikipedia page is correct. Unfortunately, its 'specific definition' describes a specific subset of unary operations rather than specifying the actual meaning of 'unary operation'.
In mathematics, a unary operation is an operation with only one operand, i.e. a single input. Specifically, it is a function. f:\ A\to A. where A is a set. In this case f is called a unary operation on A. Common notations are prefix notation (e.g. +, −, not), postfix notation (e.g. factorial n!) ...

Here are a couple of extensions I added to knockout.
GitHub. Download knockout.power.js. Usage. Combine observables and subscribables with or . var combined = obsA.or(obsB);. Fire once and unsubscribe. var value = 0; obsA.once(function(newValue){ value = newValue; }); obsA(1); obsA(2); // value is 1. Combine once with or for greater control.

No no, that makes sense. I don't think we have that kind of a situation. Thanks for the reply.

There's no positive evidence for an intelligent designer, but there's plenty of negative evidence.

+ChronMan24 Nah dude I'm just saying that DMT entities are a projection of the ego as a way to distract you from the formlessness and voidness of reality as well as the fact that the psychedelic experience is a setting face to face with reality. Your brain stops you from being able to see that during your regular functioning since experiencing that constantly would be pretty detrimental evolutionarily.

The psychedelic experience, by this definition, is still highly significant, it just doesn't break the laws of physics in this definition.

Which (functionally identical) line of C# code do you prefer?

return binding.Select(value => value.Trim());

or

return from value in binding select value.Trim();

Circles: I do circle back, but only if you have a non-cartoon profile pic and are not an obvious bot.

Politics: We probably disagree. My views are my own and do not represent Telerik. I try to keep it civil, but honestly, there's a reason you don't discuss religion or politics around the dinner table. So, here's the compromise on an sociopolitical posts: I'll try to keep the insults down if you do the same =).

One more thing: if you use a goto statement in C#, I will insult you without compromise.
