  1. I am absolutely blown away!! Bravo!!!!
  2. THAT'S AWSOME!! What was your project?
  3. 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!!
  4. Kinda, I was never officially "here" but I do like to lurk
  5. Challenge accepted
  6. I'll be there, along with @AnonymousDinosaur
  7. It has to do with prime numbers, specifically with sequences A050475, A090633, and A090634 of the OEIS
  8. 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

  9. 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.
  10. 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.
