Let’s Talk About Math, Baby. Let’s Talk About You and Me.

And a happy Friday morning to all. I would like to start out this morning by wishing a very Happy Birthday to Prince Jazzbo. Be sure to wish him one today as well. You should try and wish him one early today before he gets blind stinking drunk. So, that said, Happy Birthday Brother.

Check out my hand.

Okay, um, let’s see what’s on the list to write about this morning? Ah, my new article is not up yet on the City Wire. My editor is a little busy with the new marketing person. That whole expansion thing. So, he’s really busy and has yet to put my article up. I’ll let you know when it is posted.

UPDATE! 10:23AM: My new article is up on the City Wire. You can read it by clicking here.

So, I finished Season 4 of Bones last night. I’ve got two words for you, Mötley Crüe. I have to give it to the writing team, that’s a Helluva way to end the season. Now, I am just going to sit and twiddle my thumbs until Season 5 becomes available on instant queue. I guess it would be the opportune time for me finish Rough Science and No Reservations. Pancake Land will wishing for Bones by the time me and Anthony get done in this house.

So I learned something totally kickass yesterday. Most of you are going to nod off before I can finish explaining it, but you Math nerds are going to love it. Okay, on a unit circle sin(theta)=y, right? Okay. If you were to graph all of sin(x) on a linear graph, where x on the graph is the angle theta on the unit circle and y on the graph is sin(theta) on the unit circle, and then you connect all the dots on the line graph, it would form a wave. Like this:

If you were to generate a sound wave identical to the sine wave it would be consider a “pure” sound. Interestingly enough, the sound used by television stations to test the network is a sine wave. If you do not know what I am referring to, because you were born post-Ghostbusters and are therefore not a real person, look at this:

Now listen to this: click here.

Now you know what the sine wave of the angle theta sounds like. Isn’t that awesome?! Anyway, I’ve said my piece today. I’m going to work now. More soon. ~SC
