Lost my cat over the weekend.
It makes no sense. She’s an indoor cat, she sometimes goes outside but only when we are with her and it’s only briefly.
We did move, so new area… but still, she’s not one to wander off.
I’m concerned because there are lots of stray cats in the neighborhood. So it’s not like it’s dangerous for cats around here. We’ve had fliers out but have heard nothing. I just made some reward fliers in hope that will draw more attention.
But I swear if someone is holding her just to get a reward they will be sorry. I hate to think that, but there are some questionable “neighbors” in the area.
I miss her so much :(
Something weird happened. Jason Regler tweeted that today, and then his twitter account has been deleted. I need an explanation.
so strange. i love jason for the xylobands, but sometimes he tweets the strangest things. maybe his account was hacked? not sure…
Last I saw he tweeted that the era is over and time to move on… then this, then it all disappears. wth?
So this year I re-watched the entire Star Trek series. Gotta say, DS9 was freaking amazing and by far my favorite. Who knew those later seasons had so many feels?
Also re-watched SG1 and SGA. Now settling down to watch SGU.
… Y’see, now, y’see, I’m looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.
So you might end up with more donuts.
But then I also think… Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?
A round donut with radius R1 occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R1. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R2 and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R2, then the area of a round donut is πR12 - πr22. The area of a square donut would be then 4R12 - 4R22. This doesn’t say much, but in general and throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.
The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R2 = R1/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15πR12/16 ≃ 2,94R12, square: 15R12/4 = 3,75R12). Now, assuming a large center hole (R2 = 3R1/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7πR12/16 ≃ 1,37R12, square: 7R12/4 = 1,75R12). This tells us that, approximately, we’ll have a 27% bigger donut if it’s square than if it’s round.
tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.
Thank you donut side of Tumblr.
