Pigeon hole principle

Well, this has been one of the most astounding piece of learnings I've had in my life..

The Pigeon hole principle states that if you have to fill n slots with n+1 objects, there necessarily has to be at least one slot that has more than one object.

I luv this mainly coz of its simplicity ... and more importantly coz of the amazingly profound implications it has and the wide range of math problems it can be applied in...

I read the principle and thought this must again be one of those complicated things u keep uttering. But when u mentioned its simplicity, i went back and read it again to find that yeah, it was really simple.

Welcome to the world of simplicity, Neo. And what u swallowed just now was not the red pill, but Dependesol (my favorite anti-laxative)
