>Right. Let’s do this post!
Start off with the news.
First major thing: iPad 2!
This thing is such an awesomeness blend of rigid-standing-swallow-eating-duck-not sure where i’m going with this metaphor-AWESOMENESS. And, it doesn’t seem to be all that more expensive than the iPad 1.
2nd major thing (did you see what I did there? Hmm?): Domain name!
No longer shall this blog be CONFINED to the petty reaches of direthought.blogspot.com – FOR I SHALL HAVE DIRETHOUGHTS.COM. Pretty awesome.
Third: Double Maths and Single Maths pain?!
Not quite a gory pyschonomatic – that’s an awesome made up word! – roaring glaring description of the horrors of the dose of pain and mental torture per week that is Double maths, periods 6+7, Wednesday. No – I shall talk about a slight Philosophical element of this – bear with me. So – we’re doing some pointless “investigation” into rectangles and the number of them from a certain amount of squares. I find out the formula for it – tn = 1/2*(n^2) x 1/2*n . But oh no – this does not satisfy THE POWERS THAT BE. I must find proof that the numbers just change increasing by a set difference at the 739th number in the sequence. Prepare for geekiness.
I can’t quite remember the code, but I wrote out the code required to make a computer give the numbers of that formula, and compare it to the amount of rectangles. This, apparently, doesn’t count as proof. It could still change, for some reason, without the computer working it out. So, here we go – how do we know that what we take as normal isn’t the anomaly!?! One mans terrorist is another’s freedom fighter – let’s extrapolate this to a mathematically-based saying – One mans normality is another’s anomaly! (I sound a bit like Agent Smith from the Matrix). I dunno… I disagree with Mathematics at school – well, parts of it.
I think that’s all, for today. I’ve been busy doing stuff on Quantum Physics and Time Travel – all very fun, especially working out the goddamn hard formulae to do with relativity. Chapter 2 of in their Own is currently on hold , but if you haven’t read part 1, read it here.
P.s: I am accepting donations of iPad 1 or iPad 2, btw.
