Good news everyone...
Friday, June 27, 2008
It's good news if you like that kind of thing: first, the new Futurama movie
is very good (watch out for spoilers in this link); second, Spain won
against Russia (my prediction was, oh, so wrong); and third, an Arrested Development movie is in the works
I seem to know too much about this stuff, for a guy with no cable or satellite TV. Long live the internets...
Future predictions: the next Futurama movie will be as good as the last two; Spain will win Euro cup 2008; the Arrested Development movie will be funny (how can it not? C'MON...).
Germany vs Russia == EuroCup 2008 final
Wednesday, June 25, 2008
Yes, I'm calling it: the final will be Germany vs. Russia.
Yes, I know, Spain beat Russia 4 - 1 in the first game of the tourney, but Spain will find a way to crumble under pressure. Furthermore, there is only so much Iker Casillas can do--the man is a goal-stopping machine, but there are limits.
I may have mentioned this link before, but it's where I watch all the goals scored around the world: futvolgoles.es
Pick a number, any number. If the number is even, divide it by 2; if the number is odd, multiple it by 3 and add 1. Now, take the resulting number from the applied rule and continue the rule. Eventually, you will hit 1.
The actual problem: is it true that any number you pick, for which the rules above are applied, will eventually reach the number 1?
Seems easy enough. And it's either true or false. For example, lets start with 6. Our sequence is then 3, 10, 5, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1. If you try it with other numbers, chances are that you will reach 1.
So, it's true enough. Or is it?
This is one of those easy-to-state number theory problems which no one has been able to prove
Wow! $80 for a painting...
