Paul Revere never actually yelled the British are coming. :fluttershy:

1+2=3. There are three numbers in 9/11. 9. 1. 1. 9 plus one is ten, ten minus one is nine. There are nine points in a nonagon. If you cut a nonagon in half you get five points. There are five points in a star. There are fifty stars on the American flag. There are eight letters in American. There are twelve letters in the United States. Eight plus twelve equals twenty. Fifty minus twenty equals thirty. The Thirty Tyrants ruled in ancient Athens. Athens has six letters. Athens and Sparta were two big city states, and lots of our modern day things come from Rome. Rome has four letters. Six plus four equals ten. Ten divided by two is five. Five has four letters. Five plus four is nine. There are three sides in a triangle. Nine divided by three is three. The illuminati has a triangle as their symbol. That has three sides. Three equals three.

 

The illuminati is real.

I learned this the other day in history class and thought it might be cool to share:
Back in World War II, to make sure that the Japanese couldn't decipher America's messages, the US hired code talkers. They were Native Americans (mainly Navajo) who used their native tongue to create obscure codes that America's enemies couldn't figure out. (source)

In World War 1, there was a condition in combat, where a fighting person's nervous system would reach its absolute limit and snap. That condition was called "shell shock". Almost 100 years later, we know it now as "post-traumatic stress disorder".

 

And I got accepted to Baylor University last week.

A Kill La Kill cosplayer was arrested, because a woman who was attending a church service in the same convention center where there was a anime convention was offended by it and called the police. The cosplay was Ryuko in her Kamui Senketsu base form, which displays underboob

A thread reminded me of something I found recently: Graham's Number.

 

In maths there is an ongoing 'competition' to find the 'biggest' number. Of course you can simply take the previous 'biggest' number and add any given amount, or simply quote infinity, but in this context, the number has to have an actual mathematical use, is not arbitrary and is not infinity.

 

Firstly we need to learn a new method of notation: Knuth's Up Arrow Notation.

I'm going to use | in place of an up arrow for want of a symbol.

While multiplication is an iterative addition and an exponential is an iterative multiplication, the Up Arrow deals with iterative exponentials.

 

For example:

 

3|3 is pretty much the same as 3^3, and gives the same result; 27.

 

3||3 is 3|3|3. In this case 3^3^3 = 3^27 = ~7.6 x 10^12. Pretty big number right?

 

But 3|||3 = 3||3||3 = 3||(3|3|3) = etc., which turns out to be a chain of over seven point six trillion exponents. A ridiculously big number.

 

So now we arrive at 3||||3 (which is 3|||3|||3), an exponential chain of 3 repeatedly raised to the power of 3, 3|||3 times.

 

But we're not done yet.

 

Take the number that results from 3||||3 and call it G1.

 

Then create G2 which is 3(G1|)3 - that's a G1 number of up arrows in case you missed it.

 

We're not done yet.

 

Then use that number to create G3 with 3(G2|)3, and then find out 3(G3|)3 to find out 3(G4|)3, to find out.....

 

And keep going until you reach 3(G63|)3 = G64 - Graham's Number.

 

 

And the crazy thing? It's not the biggest number. Not by a long shot.

Cleopatra, the last rule of Ancient Egypt, lived at a time that was closer to man's first venture into space than the building of the Great Pyramid.

 

Crazy, right? :D

Cats often rub up against people and furniture to lay their scent and mark their territory. They do it this way, as opposed to the way dogs do it, because they have scent glands in their faces.

Under the right conditions, aluminum has been shown to "heal" minor scratches due to it's crystalline structure.  The scratch does have to be VERY minor. Practically microscopic. 


Theodore Roosevelt's family pets consist of the following: a small bear named Jonathan Edwards; a lizard named Bill; guinea pigs named Admiral Dewey, Dr. Johnson, Bishop Doane, Fighting Bob Evans, and Father O'Grady; Maude the pig; Josiah the badger; Eli Yale the blue macaw; Baron Spreckle the hen; a one-legged rooster; a hyena; a barn owl; Peter the rabbit; and Algonquin the pony.

 

I get the distinct feeling that Teddy Roosevelt would have been a brony, if the show existed back then!

I'm confused because according to the translation of both autonomous decision should be the same as free will...

If you want to put the age of the Pyramids of Giza into a little perspective. The Pyramids of Giza are to the Romans what the Romans are to us at the moment. So when you think about the Romans and the Roman Empire, you think "wow, that's pretty long ago" right? That's exactly how the Romans would've thought about the Pyramids of Giza.

Uh.. That is a day. In fact, it's two days and little bit more. A day is 24 hours long.

You are in fact, actually in a cave tied up, looking at a wall with a fire behind you and all you see is shadows of people putting statues of things that actually do exist in the outside world, but you have been tied up in the cave since you were born and the only real tree for you is the shadow of the sculpture of the tree put up by someone.
