I stumbled across this image on Tumblr I think:
I thought that looks feasible but does the equation really work? So I Googled it and up came a result at Math.StackExchange.com, which basically says yes…
To break it down the equations is made up of the following graphs stitched together (I’d write down the equations but I can’t get them to display correctly):
To Yield this:
Apparently the graphing tool the guy who answered the question was using fell over when it tried to draw the ears. It’s well worth looking at the answers to the question to see the figures in their full glory.
Isnt’ math awesome?

I figured I might as well use what little influence I have to drive traffic to PhotoQnA given that I won a competition there without even knowing I was participating.
I wom a $50 gift certificate for B&H which I assume is a US based photography store. When I got an email from Tyler who runs PhotoQnA to ask where to send it I told him he’d be better off sending it to somone else as I’d looked at B&H’s delivery costs outside the US and it would have cost $50 to send me something…
Tyler instead suggested that he get me a voucher for a retailer outside the US and off the top of my head I said Amazon.
So now I’ve got £30 to spend on photography equipment on Amazon.
Thanks to Tyler at PhotoQnA.
