Okay, penitential time is over. My "discipline" is put back in the closet where I keep all of my scourges and whips.

A follower of Goddard
And a rising Astrogator
Were agreed that superthermics
Was a spatial hot pertater.

The reached a Super-Nova
On a bicycle named Beta
And I'd tell you more about it
But they fused with all the data.

I quoted the previous poem wrongly! I abase myself, pouring sackcloth and ashes over my head. It should have read

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep
The radar has failed to find them.
They'll all face-to-face
Meet in parallel space
Preceeding their leaders behind them.

The shame! The shame! Oh, the horror! I was actually in error!!

I will throw myself off of a bridge!

Or something....

It's perfectly okay in multi-dimensional topology, Amos.

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep
The radar has failed to find them.
Leave them alone and they'll come home
Preceeding their leaders behind them.

With Shane, though, it isn't applied mathematics--it's indolence coupled with pathological larceny.

Shane has been trying that old gambit of taking (approximately) half of a $20 bill to the store or the bank, taking (approximately) the other half of the same bill to another place, and thus turning it into $40. Kind of like what the bankers themselves do, only he doesn't get away with it for some reason...and if he did, it would be on a much, much smaller scale.

VERY good, Amos! You get one-half of a gold star. You have to figure out the other half to get the other half (which is bigger).

Amylopectin is a polysaccharide with a varying structure; It is composed of linearly linked alpha 1,4 linked glucose units (coiled into tubular sections) with occasional alpha 1-6 glycosidic bonds which provide branching points. Each amylopectin molecule may contain 100,000-200,000 glucose units, and each branch is about 20 or 30 glucose units in length, so that these molecules are bushy and nearly spherical in shape.

The many exposed ends can have more glucose units added to them by enzyme action for storage purposes or removed from them for use in respiration.

Amylopectin is one fraction of starch (typicaly 80-90%), the other fraction being amylose (10-20%). Glycogen ("animal starch"), found in the liver and muscles, is effectively similar in structure to amylopectin, but it has shorter branches: 8-12 glucose units.

By their hats ye shall know them.

Gnu, you forget that you have to factor in the SQRT of -1, due tot he fact that the Nauga is imaginary. This produces two roots, a positive one and a negative one.

Yeah, Rap. Seen it. Great trick but their hats suck. I wear mine for sweaty work. Cat hats are much better as they don't look like a lid that was crimped on. I wear my Cat hat to formal occsions. Caterpillar rules man. Cat don't need no "tricks" to sell their shit.
German engineering is cool... Yankee engineering is coolER. And their hats are the topper.

Amos... precisely my point that the irregular number cannot be even which hoops precisely matched to the even number of sides is false no matter what truth table is attempted to be invoked in proof.

I got an A+ in basic uni philosophy and me engineering math classes but it don't take that to figger odd ain't even. Or, perhaps I simply am odd at even trying to grasp yer postualte?

Minds me of the time me and cousin Jim and me buddy were goin huntin deer... wee hours... on our way in the truck... me an Jim got into a discussion about tau shear on composite carbon fibre aircraft skins and the use of electromagnetic charges to form radar deflection (Jim is one of the foremost engineers in this area in the world... his work has been on the TV... re Iraq, etc). We were in quite the discussion when me buddy piped up and said sommat like, "I am deaf in my right ear so all this shit is going in one ear and getting stuck so let's talk about pussy eh?" Maybe that doesn't apply herein... maybe it does?

You got a cat?

In geometry, the rhombic triacontahedron is a convex polyhedron with 30 rhombic faces. It is an Archimedean dual solid, or a Catalan solid. It is the polyhedral dual of the icosidodecahedron, and it is a zonohedron.

The North AMerican nauga produces a fine-surfaced hide of exactly the proportions--due primarily to its large and unusually-formed chest cavity and irregular number of legs--needed to precisely cover a rhombic tricontahedron whose central radius is the length from the nauga's left eye to the central apex of its upper ventricle.

This is the sort of natural phenomenon that gives people pause and starts them pondering Intelligent Design.

Twin primes are pairs of primes which differ by two. The first twin primes are {3,5}, {5,7}, {11,13} and {17,19}. It has been conjectured (but never proven) that there are infinitely many twin primes. If the probability of a random integer n and the integer n+2 being prime were statistically independent events, then it would follow from the prime number theorem that there are about n/(log n)2 twin primes less than or equal to n.

Please prove or disprove this conjecture. Thank you.
