I (giantlhat) this.
It's name is squiggle and it's meant for uhh... Yeah I don't know hahaha
So that in the Spanish language, you can make año- year and not ano- anus.
It's used as "not" in logic and I think it can also be placed in front of a number that's an approximation. So about 50 would be ~50.
It means similar with triangles. A squiggly equals sign means almost in math.
Oh yeah, and it goes above an equals sign to indicate congruence.
NB: There's a special circle of hell reserved for whoever decided to differentiate congruence and equality.
I'd happily send them there personally.
Also, in logic it's called a tilda I think.
You really had to say it six times?
-_- I hate my iPod...
You can say that again!
Geez, chill out. I read it the first time. And also, amirite/366608/604784
I thought it was a tilde until I saw this. Now I'm so backwards.
I was raped once. It was terrible.
Why would you share something like that with the world and how is it relevant to this post?
I just trolled her, you didn't see my unedited post.
.........you've seen some messed up testicles, bro
What the fuck is wrong with you?
Oh har har. You got me good.
Haha I honestly don't know why my first comment is in positives but i feel kind of accomplished, this was my first trolling attempt
guys, chill out! i know what it is already! its the beard fr a smiley!! :)~ duh! :)
Tilde. It's primarly used to say approximately "~9001 power level"
But it has another use.
oh wow I really don't know what it's used for. It turns up as an ending punctuation for singing~ but that's usually just because I missed while I was trying to type a !.
I know the name but not the function~~
Try to google it. I've tried it about 10 different ways and none of them work
It's obviously just the mysterious key that everyone basically accepts as an exclamation point :P
Well, I always thought it was a tilde until that guy up there said otherwise...
But as for the use.. I think it has many. I sometimes use it at the end of my sentences to add a sort of.. Voice? Like for those of you who have watched animes subbed, have you ever noticed that sometimes when the character fluctuates his/her voice there is a tilde in the sub? I've only seen this a few times, but that's where I got it from, at least.
It's a tilde and in HDLs, it's used to denote "not."
It's for some Mexican words like pi~na colada
This is sad. A tilde I think. Spanish accent.
You say "I think." That means you don't know. So how is it sad if everyone else doesn't know?
lol. not ˜, we're talking about ~.
