  2. I'll be there, along with @AnonymousDinosaur
  3. It has to do with prime numbers, specifically with sequences A050475, A090633, and A090634 of the OEIS
  4. A few weeks ago I posted on the bad news thread, now I'm here because life is funny that way. For the last 2 and a half years I have been working on a math problem and I think I finally solved it. I won't go into details because I am going to try to get paid for it but suffice to say if it works I will have my name on a Wikipedia page and a fair chunk of prize money and maybe be in a Numberphile video, who knows. (I encoded an explanation and hid it bellow in code so my partner can't double-cross me, that's what the weird white space is). I also got to interview at and subsequently tour a bronze foundry which was awesome!! If hired I would be earning almost twice what I currently make, and would be primarily blasting things with sand as well as pouring molten bronze and aiding in other parts of the casting processes. I am incredibly pumped at the prospect of working there, its basically my dream job. I also managed to get in touch with several old friends and its been a pleasure talking to them again. Life is good.25 39 43 36 36 20 35 32 4a 44 20 32 38 40 20 78 20 72 3d 32 4a 20 28 3a 3d 44 40 3f 20 35 3a 44 34 40 47 36 43 36 35 20 32 20 3f 36 48 20 3e 36 45 39 40 35 20 40 37 20 37 3a 3f 35 3a 3f

  5. There is always the cryptography route there is a basic A is 1 B is 2 method. the Ceaser cipher and Polybius square are all good yet simple number based ciphers. But that's all a bit simple, you probably want something crazy awesome. I would suggest using this to convert letters into graphs, I figure it would be pretty cool to string them all together into a massive systems equation whiten is set-builder notation or something. If you want some help I'd be more than happy to oblige They don't call me a mathematician for hire for nothing.
  6. I have had a sucky week and sharing helps me prosses it so here goes. I used to have a problem with self-harm and I had a relapse a few days ago and had to go to the hospital, It was just a bunch of shallow cuts but I had to go in anyway. My current job is ok, but I want a better one. I really want to be a salesman but I can't drive that well so it has to be close to home and the only jobs close to home are baristas and food workers, which is what I am right now, I've had to start driving more out of my comfort zone and I often drive to slow and people keep honking at me for one reason or another. I'm only 18 and have no experience in sales but I really think I would be good at it. I love talking to people and getting to know them as well as convincing them to buy things to make them happy. Currently, its just people who don't know what to order but I want to do more and better my skills. I am also an amateur mathematician and I have been working on a particular problem for the past 2 years. All I have to show for it is a box of papers and scribbles. I'm not going to stop, I'm going to solve it, but it gets discouraging at times. I also had a friend go off to college recently and he has ignored every one of my texts and emails. I kinda figured it would happen but it's still a little insulting. And my fiance dad is also being a butt head, he is highly erratic and is obsessed with a video game. when he calls her he as a 50/50 chance of making her cry or just pissing her off. I guess thats the downside of living with your parents.
  7. Hey TFA! You're the best!

      Thanks, Ark. I needed that :)

  8. YES PLEASE!! That would be awesome!!
  9. I've always wanted to be one of these fellows, it sounds so cool!! I'm from Utah BTW, welcome to the shard
  10. I dig it, great job!!
  11. That's awesome, congratulations!!
  12. Good times...
  13. I have had a bad week, but today was different. Today was awesome. I went to the local animal shelter with my fiance just to look and well... Despite having lost one eye she is a cute, cheerful, and energetic kitten. I have been playing with her all day I love her. It's good to finally win one.
  14. Its been a rough week, three days ago my cat died, we had had him for about 9 years and he was the nicest most mellow cat you'll ever meet. Two days ago I had a medication mishap which resulted in a visit to the ER, I then spent the night throwing up. Now my dog is having health problems and it's looking like she'll need to be put down tomorrow. This coupled with garden variety doubts and self-loathing has left me feeling really down. People keep telling me that things will work out and get better but sometimes it's hard to believe them.
  15. I will join this club and make my shame public, below I have attached 2 pictures of me. The first how I used to look, the second how I look now. How the mighty have fallen, I hope to one day regain my throne but until then I will dwell in squalor with the other short-haired people. Question If I still have my long hair and it's just not still attached do I count as a short-haired person, just wondering.
