I don't normally post these...
But this conversation with jellybeanzulu made me laugh. We're such scienceengineering geeks.



maigsy: man i'm bored.
jellybeanzulu's SN: umm
jellybeanzulu's SN: I'm thinking of a number
maigsy: pi
jellybeanzulu's SN: nope
maigsy: e
jellybeanzulu's SN: nope
maigsy: i
jellybeanzulu's SN: :-)
maigsy: i know you TOO WELL!
maigsy: ;-)
jellybeanzulu's SN: ok, so that didn't distract you very long

Current Mood: giggly giggly

It's j, damnit, j. i is for current, j is for the square root of negative one... :)

you EEs and makin' up weird numbers.

of course, us chemical engineers know that work is positive when it comes out of the system, and negative when it goes into it ;)

i,j,k are all imaginary and orthogonal when you're doing graphics work... mwahahaha... long live the quaternion...

What do you need imaginary stuff for in graphics? It's all REAL!

Unless you count all the numbers in the WORLD! :)

True.

But of all the numbers in the WORLD, only five of 'em are important.

I mean, really, when a professor asked you for an answer in class, an important number, something to demonstrate some principle or something, not just the answer to a tedious calculation that somebody was doing as an example...

how many times was the answer not one of {e, i, p, 1, 0} ?

eip + 1 = 0. ,
