This is a collection of random and (somewhat) interesting things that is a little bit like Tom Scott’s series on “Things You Might Not Have Known.” I’ll be finding one thing every day and updating this post accordingly. My plan is to see how long I can go without dropping a day.
Ah yes, the obligatory monthly post. Even though my posting schedule is inconsistent, I’m never gonna give it up… just like how Rick Astley’s never gonna give you up.
Rickrolling is one of my favorite internet trolls because of its simplicity and success rate. People get “rick rolled” when “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley is played unexpectedly, whether it’s through a disguised link or an unrelated video that cuts to the song.
The subreddit r/TheyDidTheMath has a bunch of useless math calculations for real world “applications.” It’s quite similar to Fermi Questions, my favorite Science Olympiad event. Last night, I saw an xkcd that made me want to check it’s math.
Wow, no blog post in a week? What’s been going on? Well, not a lot. But also quite a bit. This is going to be less of a “normal blog post” and more of a “here’s a random list of things I did.” I’m also going to be trying out the Table of Contents, which should appear to the right above the menu.
