H2G2: making humor from science

This is a presentation I did in 2012 for an internal “Inspiration Meet” at a previous workplace, where we shared any book, movie, or whatever inspires us. I gave a presentation about Hitchhiker’s Guide to The Galaxy, the science fiction book and series by the late Douglas Adams, focusing on how he invented humorous fictional concepts and technologies based on existing science and philosophy.

The presentation went fairly well, except when I attempted to explain about the Infinite Improbability Drive. One of the audience actually fell asleep. :)) Here I added a video from the H2G2 movie which I should’ve included then. Enjoy!

Happy Pi Day!

Happy Pi Day! In case you’re wondering why, it’s because

March 14 => 3-14 => 3.14

Of course, only Chuck Norris knows the last digit of pi. But for the rest of us, there’s a website that shows pi to 1 million decimal places. The URL of the site itself shows the first 64 digits of pi: 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592.com

Have a blast and some Pi Pie!
