PIRAAAAATES!!!! []

... oh, also, I had an awesome dream about Michael C. Hall, where he was a secret agent/assasin, and we were best friends. He "stole" me to take me on a secret mission to find Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan. []

I also saw a map poinpointing the exact location where Osama is supposed to be hiding, so now I keep trying to find different mountaneous regions of Afghanistan to see if I can find the location and then call Obama and let him know. []

Keo, that sounds a bit like a Hollywood film, surprising that no-one has actually done a film like that precisely! Not a very good Hollywood film, mind! []

Love is like pi - natural, irrational, and very important.

Ninjas would definitely win a battle, but I think pirates would still be laughing in the end. Plus they'd be drunk as hell so they wouldn't care. [] []

To Err is Human, to Arr is Pirate < I have that t-shirt.

I have no Ninja-related t-shirt. []

However, I don't really care for this competition. I'm more interested in Cavemen vs Astronauts. []

I hope astronauts know not to put an apostrophe in a plural. []

Because English imported that word from French without any changes in spelling. The French word itself comes from the Greek "Peirates" which literally translates as "the one who attacks". The root "Per-" (from which Peir- is itself derived) means "dangerous" (as in "Peril").

So in other words, they're called that way because they're considered dangerous! []

*annoying TV person voice*
And that was Prof. Nash's minute of useless culture brought to you by Spam! Hum, delicious Spam!

And now for something completely different...

... I had the craziest day. []

There was a shooter in a church across the street from my work, and the friggin' LAPD, SWAT team, police dog and 4 helicopters were there trying to capture him. This was all a result of a robbery, they caught 2 of the suspects early but the last one evaded them all day.

We saw the craziest CSI-like stuff all day, it was AWESOME!!! []

Here's the news story link. The building they're talking about, the Superior Court building, that's where I work. []
News Story!!!

γ wins. People don't even know whether it's irrational or not []

quote:

Meaning a polynomial equation with integers for coefficients. For instance, sqrt(2) isn't transcendental (but is irrational) because it's the solution of x²-2 = 0 []
You should know them, they are the most common numbers amongst R []

I understood your reply there, Inky, right up to y!

Edit: Oh, fogot to say, that sounds exciting, Keo! Mind, I expect that after a few recent incidents, the police in the US are a bit jumpy about people running around shooting guns, it could have been anything!

You have Varna, you just don't realize it!

You've had much more complicated maths than what was mentionned above interacting with your life each time you trusted a password encryption to keep your stuff from getting hacked for example... []

The one and only thing Twighlight (be it in book or movie form) achieved was to deal the final blow after Interview with a Vampire and Queen of the Damned already weakened the genre by making it swooning material... Well, series like Buffy and Angel contributed to the damage quite a bit actually.

*wonders if the pun "beating an (un)dead horse" shouldn't be used more often given the number of other blows to the genre he can think about*

I remember a time when you could, around a RPG table for example, dare say the V-word without fearing that all the adolescent girls within a one mile radius start to water at the mouth and get their look lost in the distance, all muttering something that dreadfully sounds like "awwwww" at the same time...
Each time this aw(wwww)ful sound is uttered Bram Stoker, Max Schreck and Bela Lugosi somersault in their tombs.

But each time a girl says "Ugh, gross!" because someone mentions a zombie, a future George Romero (or at least a potential Sam Raimi) is born somewhere. There is thus still hope in my heart... []
