Wow, what an effort. This guy has taken a picture of himself every day for 16 years (and counting!) and displays they in creative ways. I liked watching his hair grow and disappear in the video compilation.

While looking at external battery packs on Amazon, I come across this customer question:
Q: Can I plug it into itself to charge it?
A: No. This would violate the laws of thermodynamics.

Just what we need....MORE LAWS!!!

Does anyone know if this watchface exists? It looks like the Moto 360 Pascual face with some extra buttons or notifications on the face. Original link is here:

Interesting how people in different countries argue over who writes fractions correctly. 
 
It can't be true... can it?

Yes, it is indeed true that the square root of 2 and two thirds is equal to 2 times the square root of two thirds. This particular equation is an example of a prompt on the UK-based website Inquiry maths. The website explains:

Inquiry maths is a model of teaching that encourages students to regulate their own activity while exploring a mathematical statement (called a prompt). Inquiries can involve a class on diverse paths of exploration or in listening to a teacher's exposition. In inquiry maths, students take responsibility for directing the lesson with the teacher acting as the arbiter of legitimate mathematical activity.

Remarkably, this particular prompt was found by a year 10 student of teacher Rachael Read. It is recommended for students with high prior attainment in years 10 and 11. Reportedly, students are quickly hooked in to the prompt, particularly when one of them claims it “works” after checking on a calculator. 

Relevant links

There is more discussion of the educational value of this equation, and on the teaching of surds in general, in the original blog post on this topic: http://www.inquirymaths.co.uk/home/number-prompts/surds

The word “surd”, referring to n-th roots, is a Latin translation of a term tracing back to the 9th century Persian mathematician al-Khwārizmī, after whom algorithms are named. He also invented the term algebra (al-jabr in Arabic).

Only had a small exhaust repair to be done, but the work was done quickly and inexpensively. Staff was courteous and honest.
