  1. Have you ever had Dr pepper cream soda? It changed my life. I'm not much of a Coke or Dr pepper guy but DANG, that stuff is good.
  2. Being fairly introverted I was totally on board with the social distancing, I figured I would hang out at home, make some stuff and generally have a good time. But now things aren't seeming so great. I work on a on call basis, when someone books an escape room I come into work, but now that no one is booking I'm not working so I'm not getting paid. My laptop broke and I lost a bunch of files trying to fix it, my SLA 3D printer broke as well, and now to top it all off the power just went out. Every time I think of something to do I realize that it wouldn't work. I can't sculpt stuff because I use an bake clay and have no power, I want to print some minis but no printer and no power, how about building something out of foam, my foam cutter needs electricity Wich I happen to have none. I'm glad I'm not in a hospital with Covid 19 or anything, but life in a world ravaged by precautionary measures sucks.
  3. She is doing great!! Just this morning she brought me a present! She showed up at the back door holding a dead bird in her mouth, she was very proud and so was I. This is a rather big accomplishment seeing as she only has one eye... For best results I would use a crooked neck squash, in a pinch pumpkins can be used. If you are feeling CRAZY you can use a banana squash but I really wouldn't, banana squash are much better as soup. And to answer the question that is at the forefront of your minds, Yes I have been keeping an eye on all my friends as well as my enemies.
  4. I am absolutely blown away!! Bravo!!!!
  5. THAT'S AWSOME!! What was your project?
  6. I GOT A JOB!!!! It's at an escape room and they want to use some of my crazy ideas and to utilize my skills in 3D printing, bronze casting, foam sculpting, etc!! I never thought that I would get to use my hobbies to be useful to others and make money. I also get to play through the rooms for free so I can be qualified to run the rooms, it's awesome!!
  7. Kinda, I was never officially "here" but I do like to lurk
  8. Challenge accepted
  9. I'll be there, along with @AnonymousDinosaur
  10. It has to do with prime numbers, specifically with sequences A050475, A090633, and A090634 of the OEIS
  11. 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

  12. 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.
  13. 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.
