This resulted in a quite interesting discussion over Facebook chat (that perhaps lasted longer than it needed to), which I had screencapped and posted as an answer on math.stackexchange.

The folks at math.stackexchange were less than amused by this answer (which is reasonable on their part, given the rules of the site), as seen by their discussion here on meta.math.stackexchange. Not surprisingly, the answer was deleted.

This is possibly one of the most hilarious things related to mathSE I have ever seen. Best is the comment in the meta post: “there may be something between these users”
