I took my girlfriend to an improv show the other night and during intermission we were passionately arguing over whether half a 5 Hour Energy shot would give you 2.5 hours of energy or 5 hours of half-assed energy so we turned around to ask the opinions of the three people behind us and one of them said “Are all your arguments like this because we heard you in the lobby earlier fighting over the right way to pronounce ‘egg’?”
… Y’see, now, y’see, I’m looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.
So you might end up with more donuts.
But then I also think… Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?
A round donut with radius R1 occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R1. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R2 and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R2, then the area of a round donut is πR12 - πr22. The area of a square donut would be then 4R12 - 4R22. This doesn’t say much, but in general and throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.
The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R2 = R1/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15πR12/16 ≃ 2,94R12, square: 15R12/4 = 3,75R12). Now, assuming a large center hole (R2 = 3R1/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7πR12/16 ≃ 1,37R12, square: 7R12/4 = 1,75R12). This tells us that, approximately, we’ll have a 27% bigger donut if it’s square than if it’s round.
tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.
Thank you donut side of Tumblr.
These ‘Gay Jeans’ Really Were Born This Way.
This crowdfunding campaign may sound like a bad April Fools joke. But it actually comes with a really poignant message.
Betabrand's 'gay jeans' look like any other pair of jeans when first purchased, but over time - through washing and general wear and tear - their true self starts to show. No, their true self starts to come out.
The five-pocket dark denim pants are, in fact, made with multi-coloured thread, so as the indigo dye over them fades, a yarn of bright colour is revealed in its place. So far, so weird, right? We’ll leave it to creator Steven B. Wheeler to explain.
"Even in early life, I was not wildly unlike any of the other boys on the playground, but as time went by, I noticed things that set me apart from the others", he told Towleroad. “The same too can be said for Gay Jeans; it takes time for them to uncover the things that makes them unique”.
"The name is a pun on the issue of science finding the ‘gay gene’ and the debate over whether or not being gay is a choice", he continues. "For these genes, it isn’t a choice. Like me, they were born this way and, like me, they’ll come out in their own time."
Sometimes it’s difficult to find the words when coming out, but with these jeans you might as well save your breath. The fabulous threads will do all the talking for you without even uttering a word. ;-)
This is the weirdest thing I have seen all week.
