comment At what point is the phrase “couldn't go slower” true.
It’s another thing if you’re actually asking about the slowest possible speed using a car. Then you would probably have to specify the car, including engine, gears and whatnot, the road, including slope, ground, the possibly weather. I dunno. But you most certainly would have to ask a physicist or an engineer or maybe both, but not a mathematician.

This is rather a physics question. If you talk about idealised motion, then you can always go a little slower without stopping. Take your favorite unit of measurement for speed. Take your favorite candidate for “the slowest speed” (such that you can’t go slower without stopping). Measure that speed. Take half of what you got. Move that fast. There you go, a little bit slower than before.

comment Prove that a Linear-Map is surjective.
Write “Let $V = \{p ∈ ℝ[X];~\deg p ≤ 2\}$” in the beginning and change $g$’s signature to “$V → ℝ^3$”. (You mean “less or equal to”, by the way.)

What is $R2[X]$? Did you mean to write $ℝ[X]$?

I think I might just call it “steroid” …

comment Is there some sort of trick to show naturality?
@QiaochuYuan Ok, well. It’s good that you can see it, but it’s a shame you can’t describe what’s going on. If you ever find a good phrase or some sort of intuition you can convey, I would be extremely interested! It might also help for the likes of me if you could pinpoint to what sort of experience enabled you to see naturality (if there was one). (Thanks in any case.)

comment Is there a name for a monoid with a distinguished absorbing element?
@rschwieb Yes, exactly. A little background for this question: Valuations on fields $F$ are morphisms $F → M$ of such structures (with an additional requirement of some subaddivity of “$+$” and “$∨$”), where $M$ is an ordered group with an adjoint absorbing element at the bottom. Then, $M^×$ would be called the valuation group.

@QiaochuYuan Is this a joke? Seriously, I can’t tell.

comment Use of the symbol $\lneq$
Is it? Or is it just not deemphasizing that it is not not inequal?

comment Use of the symbol $\lneq$
Though I agree with you, not everyone thinks of “$\subset$” and “$\subsetneq$” as different relations.
