Anyways I was completely clueless until very recently that "degenerate" is a nazi word and now I am very uncomfortable in math class
@socks I'm pretty sure they only use it as a noun. Using it as a verb in a math context is safe, I think.
@socks oof yeah i saw that top recently, i think in the context of triangles? and i do not like it
@socks yeah... i've been familiar with the concept of "degenerate triangles" for a long time due to graphics programming, and when i first heard someone link the mathematical term to the nazi one, i had to look up the etymology
it's unfortunately irredeemable https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/degenerate#Etymology
