S8.265 - Sine Us


QQuinn does want to shake up the status quo. Here was Versine’s original pitch.

<<FIRST <LAST WK INDEX NEXT WK> END>>

QHYPER: Seems that the i-Tans will pick a polynomial to run.
QPARA: i-Tans?
QHYPER: I consider them to be imaginary.
QPARA: Should we also pick a polynomial?
QHYPER: Too divisive. I’d say our best chance is with Trigonometry.
(QSINE does a spittake)
QHYPER: Besides, we'll need a trig to counter Versine.
QLYN: Who would vote for Versine?
VERSINE: (video) I will fight calculators, and restore trig tables!
QQUINN: Finally, someone else suspicious of calculators!

    1. 1) You apparently didn't notice I hadn't updated here in three weeks (now a month)?

      2) Uhm, why? Not very constructive advice there. Brings to mind the conversation from the "Star Trek" episode "Catspaw":
      KIRK: Spock. Comment?
      SPOCK: Very bad poetry, Captain.
      KIRK: A more useful comment, Mister Spock.

      Hurrah for 50 years of Star Trek.
