Maths T-Shirt: 'Trisect: The Impossible Dream'

Here's another woofing dog t-shirt that I haven't uploaded on here before. Remember bisecting angles using Euclidean geometry at school? (That's when you had to use a pair of compasses and a ruler to divide the angle exactly into two.) Well, it's impossible to TRISECT an angle using the same techniques.

And so I thought I'd design a t-shirt in homage to this fact.

Obviously.

I've very nice.  I own one myself.  I wear it frequently.  Sometimes I sleep in it.

Very Short Stories, 24 September 2012

The Man With Two Apple Cores

"I wouldn't eat that if I were you," said Christian.

"What?"  Sandeep brought the apple to a halt halfway to his mouth.  Inspected it.  "What's wrong with it?"

"Look at it.  Do you see?"

Sandeep had already seen.  The skin of the puckered to a point on one side.  A mild mutation.  He had planned to eat around it at first, then make a judgment about how palatable it would be.

"That apple has two cores," said Christian.  He hadn't taken his eye off the apple the whole time.  "Bad omen."


While You Were Out

Alison looked down at the familiar red and white card on her doorstep, her name scribbled in the box.

"We attempted to deliver your item," it said.

"However, we could not do so because:
  [  ] you were not at home
  [x] we couldn't be bothered to ring your doorbell

"Your item is waiting for you at Your Local Delivery Office."

Alison sighed, and trudged back upstairs to fetch the shorter of her two swords.  She pulled on her leather cap and, after a moment's hesitation, picked up her buckler shield.

She wasn't going to make that mistake again...

OPTIMIST PRIME / NICK CLEGG


This one's mainly for my old school mate Gareth, whose colleague mispronounces lots of things.  And this was one of her creations.

Actually, a quick Google search brought up this rather good image for Optimist Prime, so it wasn't the first time someone made this connection.  But I couldn't resist making this all the same, and I reckon it's different enough in tone.  And if I use the same idea again, I'll keep linking to the other Optimist Prime image.

Link of the Day: The Nick Clegg apology parodies, of course.
