    Happy Left-Handers Day!

    About 10 percent of people write with their left hand – a trait tenuously tied to intelligence and creativity, not to mention inky pinkies. And some experts say this small but steady legion sheds light on the brain. Despite their minority status, lefties are more likely to excel in music, mathematics and athletics, according to studies.

    Guess what? It’s National Lineman Appreciation Day. Swear to God.

    Last year, the Senate passed Resolution 95, which officially designates April 18th as the day in which all sane and thoughtful Americans should pause to recognize both the profession and the individual contributions of linemen.

    Of course, the absurd thing about this Resolution, is that it only sets aside one day for said recognition. One day? Seriously? What are they thinking? This should be a month long event. A week at the very least!


    Here’s the deal - if all the linemen (and women) called in sick for just one day, things would get very cold, very hot, and very dark - very fast. If they all stay home for a week? Pandemonium. Chaos. Dogs and cats, livin’ together....


    I did this job for a day in Wyoming, and walked funny all month. These men (and women) are on call around the clock. They are fearless and dedicated and crazy brave. And they are quite possibly the toughest bunch of professionals I’ve had the pleasure to hang out with in a very long time.

    So thanks men, (and women) for keeping my shower hot, my beer cold, and my computer humming along in a (mostly) Clean and Well-Lighted Place.

    Tau Day

    49 Ways to Celebrate the Most Perfect Day of the Year

    June 28—6/28 or 28/6—is the most mathematically perfect day of the year. Celebrate by befriending a perfect number


    By Evelyn Lamb on June 27, 2016

    You may know tomorrow, June 28, as Tau Day, a celebration of the number 2π, which some people believe to be the superior circle constant. I prefer to observe the most mathematically perfect day of the year, if for no other reason than the fact that it works whether you prefer to write your dates as dd/mm or mm/dd.

    June 28 is a perfect date because 6 and 28 are both perfect numbers, numbers whose divisors add up to themselves. The numbers 1, 2, and 3 are the three divisors of 6 (other than 6 itself) and 1+2+3=6. Likewise, 28=1+2+4+7+14.

    Euclid's Elements contains the first known theorem about perfect numbers. It says that if 2n-1 is prime, then (2n-1)2n-1 is a perfect number. So 6 is (22-1)22-1, or 32; 28 is (23-1)23-1, or 74. Prime numbers of the form 2n-1, the numbers that generate these perfect numbers, are called Mersenne primes after the 17th-century French priest and math enthusiast Marin Mersenne. Almost all of the largest known prime numbers are Mersenne primes because they’re easier to find than other primes.

    Euclid knew that every Mersenne prime gave us an even perfect number, but it also goes the other way: all even perfect numbers must come from Mersenne primes. This theorem was finally proved by Euler, and it's called the Euclid-Euler theorem, possibly maximizing the chronological distance between a theorem's eponyms. The odd perfect numbers are more mysterious. We haven’t found any yet, and if we do find one, it will have to be greater than 101500, but you never know what might be lurking around the corner.

    Another mystery is whether there are infinitely many Mersenne primes, and therefore infinitely many perfect numbers, or if the Mersenne primes dry up somewhere down the number line, leaving us with only finitely many points of perfection.

    For the time being, we’ve only found 49 Mersenne primes, so we know exactly 49 perfect numbers. On June 28, find one of those numbers. Get to know it. Appreciate its exponents, make friends with its factors.

    You can start small, getting cozy with one of the perfect numbers Euclid knew: 6, 28, 496, or 8128. Or you can reach for the stars and adopt the latest, greatest perfect number (274,207,281-1)274,207,280, with its 44,677,235 digits, as your friend for the day.

    There are 49 choices. Make yours count.

    Glad I didn't see this one or I would have been busy all day. LOL
    Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's things alone, and be kind to one another.
