  1. what do you get when you cross a duck and a hippo?

  2. Hmm...i got it, does that make me a nerd? No it doesnt, because it took me a while to pronounce it :p
  3. Being merely a geek and not a nerd, I don't get it....and it frustrates the hell out of me :)
  4. I get the sin theta bit, and there might be a hypotenuse reference in there somewhere but otherwise it's all Greek to me :grin: .
  5. :? :idea: :LOL: :LOL:

    That's a rotten joke! Just the way I like them
  6. Hmm...I think an explanation is forthcoming... :?
  7. you made me remember 3u maths :evil:
  8. It should probably be │hippopotamus││duck│sin(theta)

    Now THAT's nerdy :LOL: Correct me if I'm wrong though, I suck at maths.
  9. I was about to say it should be the magnitudes :)
  10. Very good. Shouldn't that be dot product.
    otherwise, it'd be HxD

    | i j k |
    |H(i) H(j) H(k)|
    |D(i) D(j) D(k)|

    or maybe I'm looking to much into it. :p
  11. rs, HXD would be the
    | i j k |
    |H(i) H(j) H(k)|
    |D(i) D(j) D(k)|
    but when you evaluate that geometrically, you get an animal that is mutually orthogonal to the hippopotamus and the duck. that has magnitude |H||D|sinTheta
  12. Which begs the question, what would the mutually orthogonal representation of a hippo and duck look like... :p
  13. hilarious cuz we're doing vectors right now :D
  14. Vic.
  15. :p :LOL:
  16. WTF! I still don't get it...

    Nerds are fcuken weird
  17. I thought a Nerd was a Geek but with a much lower IQ
