an internet musical miniseries experiment: Dr. Horrible!

13 July 2008 - 07:27 PM

Some of you may know Joss Whedon, of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Angel," and "Firefly" fame. Anyway, earlier this year, when the writers' strike was still going on, he decided he wanted to prove that the whole giant telecom corporation machinery wasn't necessary to create a damn good TV show. He called on favors from a few friends in the entertainment industry, and they've created an experiment: can this online miniseries succeed with no marketing but word-of-mouth on the internet? with no funding from giant corporations and tv networks? with just the craziness and the genius of Joss Whedon & friends?



On Tuesday, July 15th, the first episode of Dr. Horrible and the Sing-Along Blog is going to be released, for free, over the internet on its website http://www.drhorrible.com/ . It stars Neil Patrick Harris (from Doogie Houser, How I Met Your Mother, Harold & Kumar) and Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Waitress). The next two will be coming out on July 17th and July 19th, respectively.



This sounds so sweet! I can't wait for it.

Numbers, Numbers, Numbers...

05 March 2008 - 03:08 PM




Blosssom, I have no idea what you were trying to say in any of that.



Were you trying to say lim x + 1=undef as x → ∞?




Well, my presentation got a bit messed



May I take this chance to myself clear - when the value of x in the function f(x) = x+1 gets closer to closer to infinite, the value of f(x) also gets closer to infinite



This is a valid result



However, I don't think the statement "∞+1=∞" is valid. A concept (∞) cannot be added up, unfortunately



Hope that your concern will be resolved



***I'm NOT an expert so if anyone here is an maths major in university, please come out and kindly solve our problems




Never fear, for I am a math major! (I suppose that gives me some knowledge on the topic)



The lim x+1 as x approaches infinity is infinity. Why would it not be? Picture the graph in your head. It clearly goes on forever, so it is not undefined. You can add 1 to infinity, but there isn't much point seeing as it is infinite. The lim x as x approaches infinity is inifinity, so x+C(a constant) will also aproach infinity.



I hope that clears things up.




Right :) But blosssom, you had the right idea by saying that you didn't think you could add a concept; "∞+1=∞" doesn't really make sense, but it makes sense to say that x+1 -> ∞ as x->∞... and that's a more logical way to think about it, really :D



Aww, math.



Also, demonreape, never fear: you'll never see "the actual amount of numbers after the decimal it is." It has been proven that pi is an irrational number and thus can't be written as a fraction. (and any number that can be written in decimal form without tricks that rely on picking up some pattern - like, .01001000100001.... doesn't count - can be written as a fraction)

US legalizes some torture, overturns hab.corp.?

I'm curious on thoughts about this article about a recently passed bill. It makes me sick, but I'm curious what other people have to say before ranting my opinion. :)





Important edit: tip.it cut off my intended original title. It's very important to me that there is a question mark at the end - I am not saying that the US legalized some torture and overturned the writ of habeus corpus, but trying to prompt a discussion QUESTIONING whether this is or is not the case. So I apologize for the previous title, and hope this new one better suffices!

The Broccoli Award!!

20 March 2006 - 05:22 PM

Okay, I got really excited when I saw the post about the broccoli awards, because I thought for a moment that it would honor the wonder that is broccoli :D



Think about it: Broccoli is one of the most nutricious foods around. (Source: http://discworld.atu..._nutrition.html) It has ridiculous amounts of protein and dietary fiber, both difficult to acquire in your diet, as well as Vitamin C. And then it has substantial amounts of calcium, vitamin A, and iron! And very little fat (especially saturated fat).



Meanwhile, it tastes DELICIOUS. It is also so well designed; the leafy end soaks up sauce very well, so it picks up flavour easily. And the stalky end is great for dipping.



If I were a scientist asked to design the perfect food, broccoli would come close to being it.







... On that note, what are y'all's favourite foods? :D



(Mods, hope this isn't spammy - if you feel it is, feel free to delete :D Not that you'd need my permission, but y'know.)

Deep Throat revealed!!

01 June 2005 - 01:25 AM

In the early 1970s, reporters Woodward and Bernstein of the Washington Post did some major investigative reporting of the Watergate scandal... eventually leading to US President Nixon's resignation in the face of impending impeachment.







One source, high-up in the chain of command with lots of inside info, leaked information that was vital to their investigation. This source was sworn to secrecy and had been nicknamed "Deep Throat."







Now, the identity of this man has been revealed! His family thought he should reveal himself and get some recognition before he died.







His name is Mark Felt and he was #2 in the FBI chain of command.
