¾-Time Entertainment?

weather: partially sunny
outside: 21°C
mood: amused
Okay, my brain is really not wanting to hop back to Work. =P

So, here: I want this t-shirt. WHAT PART OF the Navier-Stokes equation in triple-integral form for advanced fluid mechanics DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND? =D

To my glee, they have a whole Einstein section.

To my disappointment, they do not have apparel with the entire proof of the E=mc² theorem, ending with the requisite "Q.E.D."

I saw it as a banner ad on a bus once for a Cadbury Crunchie chocolate bar. I was 15 at the time and bussing to and from school every day. One side had just "E=mc²" in white chalk on a clean black chalkboard with the caption "You could eat a Crunchie bar in as little time it takes to write out Einstein's Theory of Relativity...". The other side had the whole proof derived on a dustied up version of the same chalkboard, complete with the diagram of the two conics and the caption "... or you could make it last as long as it takes to prove it." Or some such.

I phoned BC Transit and tried to buy the ad banner. I wanted it on my wall SO SO BADLY. If anyone can pull any strings, I'm still interested =D =D

...my very favorite article of clothing is a t-shirt with the Drake Equation on the back, so I'm right there with you! :D

I'm on a MathML project. The test cases are various Math equations and expressions =)

Aren't those the cutest?! They'd be so mine if I actually bothered to change earrings =)

Oh, I totally have a Pi Day tshirt. Our math club at school wouldn't spring for them, though, so my friends and I ordered them independently :) The entire back lists hundreds of digits of pi...

What you might want to do...
... is contact Cadbury, or the advertising agency handling their account at the time (might've been O&M).

Don't know if they'd sell the BANNER, but... huh. Well, depends how much you're willing to fork over, I guess.
