A mathematician prepares Thanksgiving dinner


  1. I got exhausted just watching her make this. I can't imagine doing it myself. I think I'll just stick with turkey, thanks.

  2. Where's John Madden when you need him?!?! bobbie

  3. Is this the result of cooking with wine?

  4. Probably hard to make this comment without sounding sanctimonious. But, I think we should approach the consumption of animal foods with shame. That is, with shame being a step toward not consuming them at all, or at least far less. This video strikes me as devoid of respect for the animals involved. Animals that no doubt lived horrible lives and died horrible deaths. I can't see humanity making any moral progress without learning to tune-in to unnecessary suffering all its forms, and seeking justice for suffering people, animals and ecosystems. Ignoring a daily, 30 billion-animal holocaust seems like a lost opportunity to move the needle on moral progress. Today, we'll have an overly elaborate plant-based/vegan Thanksgiving dinner. It'll be amazing. And, no doubt, next to the mashed potatoes and stuffing there's a big bowl of sanctimony. It's in the air we breathe, being a companion on any moral slog.

  5. I liked the Pi and Tau.

  6. Isn’t the next row supposed to be 4 corpulent porpoises?

  7. Anon @12:14 ~ I remember that meme!!

  8. Actually, five corpulent porpoises

    One hen
    Two ducks
    Three squawking geese
    Four limerick oysters
    Five corpulent porpoises
    Six pairs of Don Alversos tweezers
    Seven thousand Macedonians in full battle array
    Eight brass monkeys from the ancient sacred crypts of Egypt
    Nine apathetic, sympathetic, diabetic, old men on roller skates with a marked propensity towards procrastination and sloth
    Ten lyrical, spherical diabolical denizens of the deep who hall stall around the corner of the quo of the quay of the quivery, all at the same time.

  9. Clarification for those as baffled as I am by several of the comments:


  10. I used to listen to WBZ Boston every night in '62-'64, Summer was fantastic with the password and lead in to songs that would continue a story he was telling.
