I AM CAKE

I found this site that has t-shirts which feature mash-ups of band logos and scientists/philosophers/great thinkers.

Yeah, I want like twelve of these.

Here are my faves:

quine

Only downside: no Leibniz.

Take a Gauss

Every mathematician needs a site like this.

Favorites:

  • Gauss didn’t discover the normal distribution, nature conformed to his will.
  • Gauss can recite all of pi – backwards.
  • Gauss doesn’t understand stochastic processes because he can predict random numbers.
  • Gauss is an exclusive member of an empty set.
  • Gauss can calculate the determinant of a non-square matrix
  • When Gauss was thirsty, he used Banach–Tarski paradox to get more orange juice.

LIKE A GAUSS

This is the closest thing to “possible tattoo” that I’ve drawn. I need some sort of ostentatious bell curve on my body.
