(x, why?) Mini: Sewing Circle

(Click on the comic if you can't see the full image.)

S is obviously the North-South axis, and W is obviously the East-West axis. Now, if e and i are the actual constants, it gets interesting.

Believe it or not, I actually debated whether or not to put parentheses around ng. On the one hand, if I didn't I might get comments or complaints. On the other side, nobody leaves comments any way, so maybe I should do that. On the gripping hand, I'd like to get a third mechanical arm, but that's neither here nor there.

Come back often for more funny math and geeky comics.

I always thought "ng" was the radius.

"Alawys" meaning for the last minute or so.

Yeah, but we usually don't see the radius in some kind of factored form, which would necessitate the parentheses.

But, you know, r = ng has a bit of a ring to it!
