What does this mean?
That I’m really nerdy and make math jokes! Basically the lim notation means that as a a variable approaches a certain value (but doesn’t reach it) the function gets infinitely close to the resultant value. So for example x^2-1/x-1 gets infinitely close to 2 as x approaches 1, but at 1 it’s undefined (division by zero). So the limit as x approaches 1 of x^2-1/x-1 is 2.
Which is all setup for the (lame) joke that as the edition of D&D moves towards 4th (but doesn’t reach it—3, 3.5, 3.75) the result is Pathfinder.
There’s also this wikipedia explanation of limits: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limit_(mathematics)
