Lots of ideas for posts, not enough time. I have been busy with figures for the book, and some were redrawn. Here are a couple that got a makeover:
And a few oldies that I like but that didn’t make it into the book:
* This joke is for everyone who’s ever loved (or hated) the quantization of total angular momentum, J. The z-component of total angular momentum is denoted by Jz.
For a given j (the quantum number that characterizes the magnitude of total angular momentum as J=ℏ√j(j+1) ), Jz can have 2j+1 different values.
* In case you don’t really follow pop-culture, the joke refers to Jay-Z’s song “99 Problems,” which has the infamous chorus line: “I got 99 problems but a bi*ch ain’t one”.
Apropos nothing, here are some webcomics I enjoy. These are all humorous, but I am also a sucker for beautiful art, so some of the selection reveals that. (I have also contributed to a couple of Kickstarter campaigns and artists’ Patreons. )
PhD Comics (obviously)
Cyanide and Happiness (not for the easily offended; DO NOT look at the comments, or you’ll lose all faith in humanity)
Loonarbaboon (wonderful insights from life with kids)
Wilde Life (gorgeous art; the comment section is full of nice folks who enjoy puns and rhyming)
Zombie Roomie (I want to draw like this when I grow up)
The next few are smutty, but pretty tame (but here are some smelling salts, just in case) and feature beautiful art.
Eldest got Mortal Kombat X for Christmas…
Btw, wombats are real.
