A mathematical marvel

This short algorithm was sent to me today. It’s a perfect valentines gift or way to show someone you care.

Just type it into Google and hit ‘search’

sqrt(cos(x))*cos(300x)+sqrt(abs(x))-0.7)*(4-x*x)^0.01, sqrt(6-x^2), -sqrt(6-x^2) from -4.5 to 4.5

What’re you doing New Year’s Eve?

The internet is a big place and sometimes things pass you by. This duet from Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (yes, it really is them) was originally uploaded to Ms Deschanel’s YouTube channel way back in December 2011 but I only stumbled across it recently.

Anyway, hope you enjoy 🙂

A (Drinking) Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones parties are always fun, along with Game of Thrones drinking games (last year I made the mistake of agreeing to drink whenever Joffrey annoyed someone in the room – not doing that one again. My head the following day…) and during season 2 I was forwarded this list of cocktails. As season 3 is now under way it’s time to share it so others can partake in the fun. I shouldn’t need to say it, but please drink responsibly.

I don’t know who created this list. If anyone finds out, email us, or leave a message in the comments and it will be correctly attributed to them.

YouTube Competition Closes tonight!

Since 2005 YouTube have been collecting entries for their ‘best video online’ competition and just a few minutes ago they announced they finally have enough entries to close the competition.

At midnight tonight they will stop accepting new entries and take the site down while they begin the ten year judging process.

If you haven’t submitted yet (and why not? You’ve had 8 years!) then go! Go! Go!
