Math + 80s glamrock = Angle Dance. The rock group “Plane Geometry” singsplains angles in this clip from Children’s Television Workshop’s Square One Television, a show dedicated to teaching math. It ran from 1987 to 1992 (if that timeframe wasn’t already very, very clear from the video).

There’s more math in the archives. 

Thanks, Leigh.

I’ll just leave this here.

Math would be more fun to learn if we had more Glam/New Wave lessons … just sayin.

The Periodic Table of Star Wars, Episodes IV, V and VI

While they don’t claim to have every character in the original trilogy, they do have the major ones.

Via etckt:

The first thing we had to think about when designing this new table of elements was the data that was to be contained on the tile. Naturally, there is the Element ID and name but what else could we include. Working through some thumbnails, we settled on the cast order, episode number and the actor’s initials.

When working through the first drafts, it was starting to look good, but wasn’t entirely what the original concept we had hoped for delivering. After much research, we were able to find one of the alphabets used in the films, Arabesh, and decided to use that for some of the ancillary data on the tile.

The coloring of the elements comes from variations on Luke and Darth Vader’s light sabers.

FJP: Be still, our nerd hearts.

I love this idea, but Darth Vader as a noble gas? He’s far too reactive.

Sometime back, our pal Brian at Litho Shop blogged the Apathetic Ink Knife. We reblogged it and many of you did as well. 
Tonight our pal Keegan over at Serial Machinist and Keegan Meegan Press & Bindery (who has another tattoo we truly love but can’t find a photo of) made it permanent.
We love this and wholeheartedly approve.
