Branching a new blog...

Yeah, it’s been a while since I blogged. I’ve been busy. My vacation is almost over. Though I’m not sure whether I’ve made some reasonable progress, all I can say is that it feels like it went so quickly! Apart from playing games & watching TV-series, I…

How I got into a #hackathon fo the first time...

Last year, when I was a newbie coder (I still am, but for now, let’s just say relatively), I tried to get into a hackathon (conducted by “savethehacker“), and I screwed it up. Looking back at those days, I feel like I was quite stupid back then. I had no…

One hour in the exam hall...

“I told you! You should’ve listened to yesterday’s result! What happened to you? You always trust in chance! And, it did tell you that you weren’t supposed to write the exam today.” (He was pointing to my usual simulated tossing whenever I get confused in…

WTH?
Corina Marinescu originally shared to BIODIVERSITY:
 
The Gorgonorhynchus
So the strange white thing that seems to “erupt” from the worm is its proboscis. This is a tubular sucking organ that some worms use to feed.
During eversion, which takes place almost explosively, the short main trunk first appears, then this divides and the finer and filter branches appear, but since each one of these is the result of an evagination the effect is almost indescribable. It is as if a large number of lively, wriggling, minute worms had been shot out.

Paper:

Today, I read an (old, but) interesting book on “Fibonacci Numbers” (only about 70 pages). It was mathematically intense most of the time, proving theorems and other boring stuff. But, the results were nice & fun to read. A few of my old questions were…
