Thatâ€™s not how geometry works, Chris

Thatâ€™s not how geometry works, Chris

Think about it.

No, really, thanks. It feels cheesy now that I think about it, but yeah, thanks for helping out. I appreciate it. My lilâ€™bro certainly will.

So my little brother has a math problem, and one of them is this:

Iâ€™m being hyper-competitive on finally wining an autocross championship after campaigning my â€˜02 Miata for the past 3 seasons. This will probably be my best and only shot to do this before I have to start putting my job ahead of autocrossing (we sometimes have to come in on Saturdays if weâ€™re behind on work orders).

Ten years ago I bought a 3-year-old Dodge Ram 1500. I loved it, but a lingering problem with the intake caused me to get rid of it in 2009. I figured I would get another pickup someday, but it seems like prices have taken a significant turn upward in the time since.

Iâ€™ve been thinking about one of these for a while now. Now Iâ€™m just thinking out loud.

You may or may not have seen the article over on Gizmodo but I was hoping that there would be some math in this article. Undeterred, I have decided to do it myself. Below is a back of the napkin mathematical explanation of why New Horizons wonâ€™t orbit.

I should print this and give it to my professor.

Alright, so I haven't posted much about this, but I am dyscalculate. This is a learning disability where I have a huge problem with numbers and math. It is very roughly equivalent to dyslexia, only in broad strokes since math is everywhere blah blah high school teachers were right.

Anyone wanna check my math? Pretty please?

I get bored in my various mathematical lectures, so I have taken up sketching out some interesting automobiles. Ignore the Instagram aftereffects; I may have gotten a bit carried away. Here they are in chronological order:

Ever heard of Sabermetrics?
