Scientific Ink

In honor of March 14th, why not remind yourself of the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Perhaps maybe something more daring, like the wave equation – better yet,  the Zoeppritz equations. As for me, I’ll hold out till I invent a new transform. Meanwhile, here are some folks who think that science makes for good tattoos.

Words to the wise: When doing scientific tattoos, double check the design and make sure at least one person is sober. A classmate from my undergraduate university tattooed a stratigraphic column of the Grand Canyon on his forearm. What does he have to show for it? A mythical Bright Angle Shale, beneath the Muav Limestone and above the Tapeats Sandstone.
