The Council of Fifty (Minus Forty)

Rusty - December 18, 2007

No, not THAT Council of Fifty, silly! We’ve started a new Mormon political group blog called Council of Fifty where we’ll discuss all things Mormon and politics. It should be good fun and hopefully divert much of the political talk that doesn’t necessarily belong here to a place where it fits right in. And if you have something to say about politics, submit a post at counciloffifty at gmail dot com.

Hope to see you over there!

  1. Minus-forty is a fun number, because it’s the one temperature that’s identical in both Celsius and Farenheit. If you’re at minus-forty F, you’re also at minus-forty C.

  2. Nice, Kaimi!

    Not quite as good as the story about Ramunajan, the Indian mathematical prodigy and G.H. Hardy, the English mathematician.

    Ramunajan was in hospital, on his deathbed. One day Hardy entered the room, he said “The taxi I rented today had number 1729. It looked rather a dull number”

    Ramanujan replied promptly “No Hardy No!. It is a very exciting number. It is the smalled positive integer that can be written as sum of two cubes in two different way.”

    (That’s 1 & 12 or 9 & 10, by the way.)

    But, for a law professor, not bad at all!
