Re: Math: Fleeting Thoughts

Does anyone know of a tool which allows you to draw a curve onto a graph and will then calculate the equation of the curve you just drew?

I have no idea what I'm doing and I'm trying to calculate something which goes beyond my A-Level Maths education (which, I failed). Cheers.

Re: Today I Made:

I don't know. I don't like gloopy things, which is how tahini always seems. Not sure about the hummus side really - the concept just doesn't do much for me.

Re: Today I Made:

I shallow fried them. They came out really nice. Should it still be soft in the middle?

Neither tahini or humus appeal to me, due to texture.

I just made falafel for the first time. I'm half impressed with myself and half impressed at how bloody easy it was.

And stunned at how tasty and filling. No meat? No matter, apparently.

Re: Controversial opinions about food

Made a cast iron pan pizza based on the Serious Eats recipe last night. My oven doesn't get as hot as I'd like (maxes at 250C), but it worked well enough that I'll be making dough on a weekly basis now.

Jurassic World

It's probably sacrilege to say this here, but I was no great fan of the original movie. It came out when I was a kid, at a time when I wasn't particularly into movies. So by the time I came around to seeing it, it was overhyped and underwhelming. I was really under the impression that the new movie ...

Tbh, that's just the first suit I saw which fit my example.
I'm looking at maybe twice that price.

Poxic brings up a different but similar point - fitting well versus not fitting well, which is also a concern.

It was related to the "lifting the hammer" challenge. Stark asks "whoever lifts this rules Asgard?". Thor says yes. Stark then says the line.

I mean, it's a throwback to the fact that Thor (and Asgard, as a whole) is Viking in origin, where rules like that were actually real? If we assume Stark isn't being serious, then he's bringing up the fact that it used to exist and maybe referring to it being a negative thing, so he's teasing Thor a...
