SLIGHT WIGGLE



A slight wiggle definitely grabs your attention, even more than a big wiggle actually. :)

It is true. A slight wiggle is captivating, every time.
I just wish this particular polyhedron were somewhat more symmetric. It looks lopsided, whether it truly is or not. However, the delightful wiggle eclipses any possible  shortcomings.

That’s.
What.

nerdy post…

Work hasn’t been too challenging lately, so it’s good that I’m taking some online classes to spice things up. I forgot a lot about python already so it’s nice to be reminded of its vast usage. The unit deals w/ dealing poker hands so that’s always fun (yay math; yes stop reading if you don’t like it lol) And of course as with many things in life one would have to do with the random function, and this was stumbled upon…

random.shuffle(x[random])

Shuffle the sequence x in place. The optional argument random is a 0-argument function returning a random float in [0.0, 1.0); by default, this is the function random().

Note that for even rather small len(x), the total number of permutations of x is larger than the period of most random number generators; this implies that most permutations of a long sequence can never be generated.

which is very interesting.

This basically says that for a long ass list (http://xkcd.com/37), the space of possible permutations is much larger than what the RNG (random number generator) is capable of producing. Hence, some permutations will never appear! Is this then truly random (every permutation having an equal chance of appearing)?

More about shuffling: Everytime you shuffle a deck, it is likely that it’s never been generated before. Ever. It’s like a new born baby.

if you like math it’s probably because you’re ugly

you were saying?

probably

i love math

I thought of taking a pic with my Abstract Algebra textbook, but nvm.

Movies as Code

Absolutely brilliant. 

Pretty obvious what movies these are even if you don’t program.
