I know we've said we've seen it all--bread wank. Icing/frosting wank. History wank. Air wank. But.

Math Wank via [livejournal.com profile] sf_drama, because how can life be more awesome? Math wank. No, seriously. It. Is. Semantic. Wank. About. Math.

In other news, because this made my evening: along with exploration of the hobby miner, there's also the particle physics hobbyist (with particle accelerator!) and nuclear physics hobbyist (with death ray--YES DEATH RAY. YOU CAN BUILD A DEATH RAY AT HOME).

What I am saying is, the universe is beyond words awesome. I can build a particle-accelerating death-ray from easy to manufacture parts from the internet. I am pretty sure this is why my great-great-grandmother came to this country, right here. Particle accelerating death ray.

I just love it so much. And sent the link to two people that will probably start construction within a week. *beams*

You should get a death ray, and then taunt Child with it. I say this in the interest of Science, and not for the amusement it would provide your readers. /whistles innocently

DEATH RAY

I sent that link to my Dad and I am reasonably certain he is going to build one. DEATH RAAAAY. My life is so much better for knowing that such a thing is possible to build in one's basement.

LOL, you and your hobbies!

If I can get a healthy particle-accelerator death ray hobby, I will be happy.

This should totally be the next Discovery Channel Series -- Awesome Hobbies.

Mike Rowe would -totally- love to host it. It'd make a change from Fords, crabs & dirt. :)

Wouldn't that be amazing? *huge grin*

Oh, also? My grandfather built harpsichords.

Entanglement theory brought to life.

I kind of feel like this is a moment I should start crying or something. My God.

2010-05-21 02:49 am (UTC)
I know!

I wanted to post that on my journal (I sent it to Entwife), but was trying to figure out what to say about how incredibly awesome this was and what it meant and how could I ever convey that to anybody because....*flails*....so anyway, was thrilled to see your post because I thought it all fit right in.

2010-05-20 09:04 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry, you said something about math? I was busy watching my childhood dreams come to life.

. . . . .brb, off to build a death ray.

*salutes* Go with God and Einstein. And bring us pictures.

2010-05-21 08:39 am (UTC)
Imma be honest, the fact that pictures do not already exist depresses me a little bit. But yes! Lots of pictures of explosions, as soon as I am not broke.

Wow. That was scary. Lex is like Jesus in the desert.

Obi-Wan has a sort of desperate, pathetic patience in this movie. You can just see it in his eyes: "My padawan is a psychopath, and no one will believe me; I'm barely keeping him under control and expect to wake up any night now to find him standing over my bed with a knife!"
