Making George Washington Carver really proud. Look him up. He was a genius.

what is the carpist question you have ever been aksed?

me: will you marry me?

Same in my case (like 3, 4 times all in all), but these guys can really forget that cos I'll only marry the announcement speaker lady of Ostbahnhof if she turn into a hot bloke, or Perla if I turn into a hot bloke, or Zerö's single peanut, or... (not much time today, make up the rest of my list on your own) ... ;)

You don't want me, though. As far as I can tell, the more or less unanimous assessment has been that I only look good on paper. :o

New question of the day (I really enjoyed the peanut one, however):

Have any amusing phobias? Bonus points for anything really humiliating.

I am afraid of sharks. I live rather far inland now, but when I was a coastal child, my school showed us a beach safety film which apparently had not been previewed for content....it included autopsy photos of shark victims. The humiliating bit is that I am uncomfortable walking on the 6-inch-thick glass ceilings of shark tanks at big aquaria, and I don't even like to be in dark, freshwater, landlocked lakes, where there is zero possibility of marine predators. I prefer clear, flowing streams, where I can look for leeches and planarians without fear of being nibbled overzealously.

Frieda 02-14-2008 03:02 PM

oi oioi.

i'm phobic about being stuck in a drain and/or being flushed away with the water. accidently stepping on the shower drain makes me run around the house with my head full of shampoo. same in swimming pools, i am not getting near those drain holes.. if i get into the pool at all.

oh, and flying bugs that can sting freak me out.

Ha, and I'm theoretician and very, very fond of everything and everyone only looking good on paper ;)
(And anyway the person who made this assessment most probably is a liar and should be integrated out of all your equations!)

Mmh, amusing phobias :confused:
Mmh, the unamusing ones are in the phobia thread already.
Well, then maybe the phobia of not getting married by Perla when and if I'll become a hot bloke on day.

lukkucairi 02-14-2008 03:22 PM

I'm afraid of blackboard chalk

auntie aubrey 02-15-2008 01:03 AM

i'm freaked out by things with nooks and crannies. tufted leather sofas, for example. and last night i was sitting in a bubble bath and i tossed in a fizzy bath bomb and watched it as it fizzled away.... only to notice that the water pits and corrodes the bath bomb in a very disturbing nook-and-cranny way.

now i might not be able to use bath bombs anymore.

Q for Friday:

¿ Which mathematical function describes you best ?
(Some examples, i.e. the first 8 that entered my mind, given, but if yours isn't here, maybe it's there)

sine and cosine

straight line

delta function

exponential and logarithmic function

Heaviside step-function

tangent function

hyperbolic spiral


Me: logarithmic, mostly, sometimes spiraling hyperbolically onto something

Frieda 02-15-2008 10:05 AM

i have no idea

maths is the only sausage i don't speak :(

Stephi_B 02-15-2008 10:24 AM

^You don't need to! (....it's the Devil's sausage some people say :D)
Just have a look which form(s) you can relate with! :)

Frieda 02-15-2008 10:35 AM

i can't-- i get brain errors

just like when someone asks me what i want to have for dinner tonight, everything just stays blank :(

i don't relate to anything-- everything's straight lines and grids and text i don't understand that's confusing me-- so i'll just pick the hyperbolic spiral because it looks so pretty :)

Stephi_B 02-15-2008 10:45 AM

Oh :(

Can I reboot your brain with a, mmh, croissant shaped function


Stephi_B 02-15-2008 10:59 AM

More options to choose from:

Fermat spiral

cubic function


something chaotic (sin[1/x])

lukkucairi 02-15-2008 11:08 AM

I'm definitely tangential - at least today :p

Earthling 02-15-2008 01:54 PM

craig johnston 02-15-2008 02:16 PM

no, can't see any boat


i'm not sure whether i'm a hyperalcoholic spiral or chaotic sin.
can i be both?

brightpearl 02-15-2008 06:31 PM

shamelessly stolen from someone much wiser than I:

0 = 1 = ∞

12"razormix 02-15-2008 06:32 PM

i like pudding!

brightpearl 02-15-2008 06:37 PM

yes, yes, especially infinite pudding...

Frieda 02-15-2008 07:57 PM

^ looks like cat food

Stephi_B 02-16-2008 12:47 PM

You folks never ever say again you have no clue of maths - you found it!! The pudding I encoded in above graphs!!!

:D ;)

Frieda 02-16-2008 01:36 PM

wait-- there's a boat AND pudding in that image?? :p

brightpearl 02-16-2008 04:52 PM

New Q fer Saturday the 16th:

If you had a first name other than the one you have now, what would you want it to be?

Coffee 02-16-2008 04:53 PM


Frieda 02-16-2008 04:54 PM

i already have two first names in my collection

but i'd like one that doesn't rhyme with all kinds of profanities in multiple languages

i wouldn't know which one though.. :confused:
