    This was a bit of a conundrum until I got it; nice to have a different angle (not maths!) for a change ;) https://www.26.org.uk/ btw. Completely unrelated to photography in a way - but related to art and the human spirit; bridging things enriches life. M.

    A sweet way of illustrating Pythagorean triples ... And you actually get twice 25 when proving it this way :D M.

    Researching these numbers can be fun - or scary; I suggest you do "23" for yourselves ... This, however, was nice ... Apart from the approach, I really like the Tuxes ... M.

    I blame @marlof (not really, I loved this when I first heard it some 35 years ago ... but I really didn't know that the original had 18 bottles ... so, here you go). M.

    Legendary guy (Cliff Stoll) completely going nuts about his favourite topological toy (the Klein bottle): And yes, it's about the number 17 (among other things). Talk about crazy - but in a good way ... M.

    What went wrong today ...

    Sometimes, weird and irritating things happen - they're not that bad on the grand scale of things, but they can annoy the heck out of you. Here's a thread to vent - but please, keep it civil. Please note: This is only for life's little desasters, not really serious stuff! If it's okay that...

    Day 10000 :) Four noughts - more than you'll get in any other number this month ... however, still one's leading ... M. P.S. Listening to the Kinks while writing this - seems to work.

    For us, F is not a mark (not that it ever is where I come from), but a primary colour.* Besides, it's 15 ... M. *Think RGB, folks ...

    My web search for "day 13" came up with an obscure horror movie nobody seems to know a lot about as top choice; I certainly hope that's not boding ... Anyway, I think this is much better: M.

    "Nine!" - "Doch!"* M. *The English word "nine" sounds like the German "nein" for "no"; the German retort would be "doch", which literally means "not no", used only in this way (in all other cases, "yes" would be "ja").

    Because some of us have expressed the wish to just continue with daily threads, we'll do just that. There is one single rule: In order to keep us shooting, we post one shot taken on that very day in a daily thread. Use whatever gear you want, keep shooting and posting - or jump onto the...

    The April 2020 Challenge - day 30

    I know it's early, but since it's the last day, no harm in setting things up properly ... All in all, I think we've already made this one a win, so I'll give you a very recognisable symbol of that: btw. In true nerd fashion, I didn't arrange the dice *until* I head thrown the five sixes - it...

    The April 2020 Challenge - day 29

    Second to last, and thus, a real one-off: 3^3-3^0=2^2+3^2+4^2 - a prime, even a twin prime, though this month without its twin ... singular, so to speak. Sorry, maths trivia and word play again, I'll save the last treat for tomorrow ;) M. P.S. The "nickel" thing was in fact "28" - the number...

    The April 2020 Challenge - day 28

    Four weeks in - and frankly, not much else to say. Anyhow, I think someone will eventually spot the reference to "28" in this song: Must sleep ... M. EDIT: Had to replace the video - as much as I like "The Blues Brothers", the verse I was referring to is missing from the film.

    3 cubed, and 3 more days to go. Time for a couple of nines (three, to be exact) ... See if you can spot all of them ... :) On a side note: The new 12-45mm is quite a good close-up lens; and taking a shot at 1/8s at f/8 was no problem with the E-M5 III. M.

    The April 2020 Challenge - day 26

    When researching the date (I've not had any creative ideas beyond 2x13 - a new low), I came across the fact that it's the anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear accident. Well, what to make of that? All things considered, humanity got away with some pretty major slipups - apparently, we're...

    Fun trivia: In German, we call any number consisting of the same digits a "Schnapszahl" - a "liquor number", meaning that on encountering one, you have to raise your glass and drink to everyone's health.* What better time to do that! And since we missed 11, better make that two rounds ... M...

    I could have milked yesterday's gag for what it's worth (my 21mm Voigtländer would make that easy), but: We're three weeks in, two thirds of the challenge behind us, still going strong - thanks, everyone, and let's keep it up :2thumbs: M.
