Thunderbolt of Pain The other day, I was walking down the street just minding my own business when out of nowhere I was hit in the gut with an emotional sucker punch. I was in a pretty good mood, I wasn’t going anywhere in particular, my eyes just kind of wandering around on their […]

## Unstable Death Wobbles

Chaos Theory One of the coolest intersections between science and mathematics is the idea of chaos theory. Mathematics can be thought of as an abstract, extremely specific realm of hallucination. A way that we can imagine things that don’t exist, like parallel lines, imaginary numbers and Euclidian geometry, yet apply those to the […]

## Math Sex Magic

Hey, Don’t I Know You? I ran into an old friend at a party the other night, and I almost didn’t recognize him. I remembered him as being really intelligent, and really introverted. He was a nice guy if you talked to him long enough to get to know him, and he seemed […]
