A video about the successor to the Rolls Royce Merlin engine that was never put into production. To be honest I'd never heard of it before.It was called the Crecy.

Following on the "I love maths" series :-)

Little known fact, coherent thought can destructively interfere with itself leaving no thought at all, that’s why I prefer incoherent thought.

Unlikely. :(

Do we have to talk about Gödel's incompleteness theorem now ?

Same series has a simple description of Turing's answer to the same question that Gödel incompleteness theorem "solved".



Resisting the temptation to post the video about P and NP

My brain isn't wired for mathematics but I do work with some clever mathematics/celestial dynamics people though; a former colleague has just passed away aged 91 - his idea of a pastime in his retirement years was to calculate future eclipse dates using a pocket calculator.

Some folk do have a weird idea of what constitutes"fun".

My father, every night before going to sleep, would ask my mother to give him a random 5 digit number.

He would then mentally determine the cube root, write it down and go to sleep, only checking his answer in the morning.

I am at loss for words to express how wonderful this video is - it has put a smile on my face under the most depressing of circumstances :
