Speaking of the train, I’m sat next to a girl with a big fucking book that’s half in my seat. It’s a book on how to plan your wedding. She’s making notes and circling stuff. I want to diiiiie. There’s nothing I hate more than weddings.
Went to a taping of the Smartest Man in the World podcast tonight. Gave Greg Proops a giant blunt I’d rolled for him, which he thanked me for profusely. Pictures and details…probably like, tomorrow. I’m too tired and I’m on the train and I wanna get high and go to bed :)
At a public lecture in Pittsburgh in 1934, four hundred lucky students were privy to a lecture by Albert Einstein, in which the great man mathematically derived his famous mass-energy equivalence equation: E=mc2. What you see above is a photo from that lecture, and what is thought to be the only surviving photo that shows Einstein working on that derivation.
The photo was pulled from a halftone newspaper clipping by David Topper and Dwight Vincent of the University of Winnipeg, who discovered it in 2007. Sadly, everything is a bit fuzzy so you can’t really make out the famed equation itself. And even though the original article had a crisp picture of Einstein posing next to one of his blackboards, he’s next to the wrong one.
Here’s a closer look at the man and the math. If you look closely, you’ll see the mass-energy equivalence in the lower left hand corner of the blackboard on the right:
Fortunately, Topper and Vincent managed to take the blurry photo and reproduce both blackboards in their original paper. Here’s the math behind the magic, the derivation of mass-energy equivalence as presented by Albert Einstein.
In case you’re wondering why the famous equation says Δ

Reblogging yet again because it’s so beautiful, it’s hard to believe it’s real.

HOLY GOD BABY MERCIFUL JESUS WHERE DID YOU GET THIS??? I require a link immediately.
Are you freaking KIDDING me with those arms? How about the thighs, are you kidding me with those? Because holy mother of cheesy peas. My whole body just flushed red.
Zach Galifianakis’ character, Alan, is always doing the unexpected in the “Hangover” movies — and the actor is apparently the same way in real life.

Utah was (lucky for these fellas) quite a way down the coast from Omaha Beach, so these fellas probably encountered very little resistance.
Also, that guy right in the foreground, he’s gorgeous!
