For once Mind Your Decisions made a mistake with a test problem. Not a mistake in his answer, but he didn't use the fastest and most efficient method. The comments were quick to point this out. I ask you guys to pause the video at the appropriate time and find the thirty second answer that Presh Talwalker didn't.

Star Trek Deviantart Day Seven!


I don't care that it's only been two weeks!


A poster for a Star Trek/Wars mashup movie. Love the Cochrane delta on the hilt of Decker's lightsabre.


Today's big discovery is Jerantino. I'll limit myself to the Trek drawings, but he has stuff from many fandoms...

Sisko and his baseball.
Janeway looking...unimpressed? Incredulous? That's an odd expression, and I'm wondering why she doesn't have an arched eyebrow.
Bones contemplates a hypo. I wonder if there's cordrazine in there...
Uhura. I can't decide if the size of her hair is exaggerated or not...
Saavik. It almost looks like Jerantino aged her up a bit (is this how she would've looked in STVI?). She looks particularly aggressive here...


An interesting collage of characters. The art itself is well done, but the actual faces are weird. Tasha looks more like a young Nechayev, Janeway's forehead is too big, Data's face has melted, etc.


Animated Marcia Brady in a TOS Halloween costume.



Medical Officer Dr. Strange treats Engineering Officer Tony Stark. Don't ask me why Dr. Strange is a Vulcan...

It's been a few years since I've promoted pocket83. Today he repairs a hatchet using several techniques. As a Minnesotan I have some experience with using axes and hatchets to get firewood, and while I would never go to the effort this guy does, I can respect what he's doing.

Michael J. Pollard died yesterday. While is Trek connection is that he was one of the "immortal" kids in "Miri", I remember him best from Summer Magic with Hayley Mills. And of course Mr. Mxyzptlk on Superboy.

Mathologer takes the properties of Pascal's Triangle to a new level.


Wait until he shows you the triangle patterns in snail shells. I suspect that certain speckle patterns in reptile and butterfly scales come from similar rules.

It's 47 Day in the Link Thread!



47 Society home page

A poster from the 47 Society.
Old site that catalogs the Trek 47s!
Memory Alpha article
Sev Trek comic, it's 42 adjusted for inflation!
Chakotea (provider of transcripts for the retrospectives) also keeps 47 lists.
While the DS9 staff eventually tired of the gag, J.J. Abrams has carried the joke into his other works.

Today's MinuteEarth video is sponsored by my alma mater, the University of Minnesota!


Programming computers to recognize the different animals in photos reminds me of CGP Grey's video on a similar subject.
