comment Intuitive Understanding of the constant “e”
I enjoyed this answer very much, and I'm sorry it was downvoted. Although I don't think I would ever be satisfied giving curt replies in an elevator to someone genuinely interested in Mathematics, you pointed out user02138's answer (the velocity one) to me -- [mind blown] meets [mental satisfaction]

it's unfortunate that you cannot hug someone or high five someone through a web browser yet, but I would at least like to say thanks for this wonderful answer :D

thanks for a very cool answer, Will. Would it be more fair to say that the area under e^-t approaches 1, rather than is equal to it?

@Mike: haha, awesome. A lot of math seems to be: given a set of equations, can you reproduce the insight that lead to them? :)
