Actually, my Dad and brother were Army men, but the Navy set came with a submarine that actually works in the bathtub ... I mean, that's what it said on the box.
All of which reminds me: Have a Happy Memorial Day.

But if a train went north at 80 mph and another train went west at 60 miles per hour, how long before Gomez Addams makes them crash while simultaneously blowing up the bridge?

List of Pythagorean Triples (3-50)

After a break, it's back. The last page of this section of my journal was a list of the primitive triples of each of the three basic types, but I think I've had enough of that. So here's a handy reference list for use in math class when creating problems for tests or classwork. It lists all the primitive and non-primitive Pythagorean triples, sorted by the shortest side, from 3 to 50.

Now, some of you may be thinking that I have too much time on my hands. Some of you know better. Had I had more time, I could have compiled this sooner. And it might've gone up to 100. And it might have been correct.

Well, I think it's correct, but typos and inadvertant omissions do happen.

Okay, I think I'm done now.

Why you'll never look at a flash drive the same way again...

I could link to some wiki page, but the TV Tropes entry is so much more satisfying. Hamtastic, in fact.

By the way, I know that the line is "Gordon's alive?" not "Flash's alive". Don't confuse me with facts!!

Comic Genesis still not updating

For whatever reason, the Comic Genesis page still is not updating, or if it is, it's very slow. It's three comics behind as of this writing, which is why I haven't updated the blog yet.

If it doesn't update soon, I'll update this one and start moving my "Sunday Comics" to a different server where they can be seen.

Sunday Comic: Super-Stickman 53: Super-Stick-Man and the Falling Rock Zone

Dateline: Stick-World!
In the mountains west of The City, there are treacherous roads, which means that there are Falling Rock zones. And that means trouble for passing motorists oblivious to the danger.

Click on the link to the comic and follow the exciting story!



Update: The link isn't working yet because the Comic Genesis site was down most of the day and then it had to catch up with thousands of updates. And, naturally, I made the mistake of thinking that I had made a mistake and requested an updated -- which put my request to the back of the line, from wherever it was. I hope it updates while it's still Sunday. It's killing my numbers.
