There are a couple (at least) theorems attributed to Thales. Their proofs are nice (and very easy) exercise using basic vector operations.
Will have to dig into that.
Reason enough not to go!
Also, I may be a native midwesterner, but that’s a bit cold for even for us!
Dude, I am SO on it! That looks stunning, and I think they might be one of our clients!
By the way, the theorem is “if and only if,” which means that if you have a circle and want to draw a diameter, you can take something rectangular (like a sheet of paper), put one corner on the circumference, and the two points where the sides of the paper hit the circle are antipodal, so a line connecting them is a diameter. This is genuinely useful.
Thanks thats good. Move it around get a second diameter centre is the intersection.
Dumbest memory of my youth: one day in the fall in 4th grade (first of our two years in Arlington, TX), a half inch of “snow” dusted the area. We were sent home from school, and the freeways knotted up. 1/2" of fluff did this. The kind of fluff you don’t even bother brushing off your car because it blows off the second you begin accelerating.
I urge you to telecommute the day it “snows” in DFW.
MY NOON MEETING GOT CANCELLED! TIME FOR LUNCH!
Not only do I love the new job, but these guys are almost too smart for a huge opportunity that they didn’t know they could target (State Medicaid, supporting the MMIS systems directly, helping with FMAP hunting, etc.) that could be worth a metric fuckton of business. (okay, so not many people know about match hunting, member juggling for budget neutrality and the like…the guys with the skills tend to stay in the Medicaid finance world)
They’ve got some AMAZING ETL guys, and their application layer is far more sophisticated than what I’d have dreamed up. They even have this nifty breadcrumb layer addition to Tableau that’s pure genius.
This is going to be fun!
Wait a sec, isn’t a metric fuckton just a fucktonnne?
It’s also a mega fuck gram.
I just had a tooth extracted. Like an hour ago.
I feel dumb for letting it go bad, but at least it’s over with!
I finally felt well enough to finish an hour of cardio on the recumbent bike and, while sore, I feel
My pops opened his eyes and squeezed my hand today. Seven days of coma were more than enough, thank you very much!
I got granted regular. I think that’s a victory.
psst we celebrate that over in the sekret clubhouse…
I am starting to get that
The first rule of … something or other.
Can’t remember the rest all of a sudden…weird.
They’re all victories, no judging or level ups allowed here!
This one is a slightly mixed bag: a family issue that has been stressing me out for literally a year (more depending on when you start counting) has finally resolved itself. I literally fell over with relief and lay on the ground for an hour when I found out. There’s still a lot of unfinished business, and now I realize I could have resolved it much sooner, but I feel like I can breathe again. It’s unbelievable.
Pro-tip people: Whatever it is. Rip off the fucking bandaid, already.
We’ve landed in Seattle. What an odyssey — not always easy or happy. I relied heavily on the bbs during the past months. Thanks to those of you who offered friendly support and advice.
