"The only way to do great work is to love what you do" (stolen from a Colin Smith comment)
Hahaha ... That's awesome!
Haha, I love him. I assume that you're familiar with XKCD? I'm curious how much crossover readership there is between your blog and Randall's cartoon, as it's less literary-geek and more comp sci-chic...but he is absolutely wonderful.In addition to arcane comics about programming, he also has some great ones about grammar and life. If you don't peruse it, you should.
Oh, my gosh, where do you come up with this stuff. *grin*Had to show this one to my geek husband.
Oy... I couldn't laugh because I was too busy having flashbacks of my high school math classes. Can't remember if that equation is Algebra or Geometry-based, lol.Proof I made the right decision to become a writer!
Butbutbut they got the number wrong! (In the translation.)The check says e^i(pi), not e^2(pi). Since the geometric series equals 1, the check is for $0.002.Okay, I'm done being a geek. Wait, not quite--imaginary numbers, yay!Now I'm done.
That will definately raise some eyebrows!
jjdebenedictis is right. The amount comes to $0.002.Very cool.
Imaginary numbers, jj? Got those in my checking account.A $536.49 check to Verizon? You may want to renegotiate your calling plan, sir.
Allison: well there's at least two cross-over readers here! I love Randall Munroe. I kind of wouldn't mind marrying him.
As long as there's a pertinent amount of info (name, amount, routing #, etc.), the check stands. Depends on if the institution wants to honor it. Doors have been used as checks in the past. Even one instance of someone writing on the side of a cow, photographing it, then mailing it in.mmmmoooooooooo
Love that check. That's awesome!
Wow. I'm going to use that exact memo line in all my checks from now on.
*falls off chair laughing*
