Genuidox, you're a total dumbasss bro. I feel sorry for your parents.

dude, that map you drew doesn't need 5 colors. the bigger region "5" can be colored with "4" and the engulfed "5" can be either "1", "2", or "3"
there is no way you can create a counter example because EVERY map is a planar graph assuming each region shares a border and not just a point. the theorem states for every planar graph, only 4 colors are needed to color in every point. Every map can be recreated with each region as a point and each border as an edge in the graph. it is called the "map" theorem because it gives the theorem a more appealing representation. Both of you guys obviously don't know this theorem and don't know enough of this math to know that Pro is obviously wrong. Con is accepting Pro's argument as correct with a flaw but that's not the case.
Come back when you actually know what a planar graph means

That makes a lot more sense. I was wondering why a 22 year old (from his profile) was acting like that.

He's 12, in case you're wondering why I'm reciprocating childishness with him.

I'm trying to screencap my inbox too, but it isn't working apparently. Just read the message, I guess.

Sorry, ignore the first one. I meant to have this one instead http://i53.tinypic.com...

You want me to screen cap the message where I told him not to do that?

Oh, it's just your brother that votes 7-0 for you on a bunch of your debates, not your 2nd account, that's MUCH better.

My brother in Houston. At least he RFD'd. You think I'd multi-account that obviously?
