Yesterday’s alphabet vs. today’s alphabet

Yesterday's Alphabet

When I was a kid getting on my two feet and learning the English alphabet, we learnt it using our ever familiar objects…

Yesterday's Alphabet

The process hasn’t changed today itself. Just the objects…

Today's alphabet

And, at least A still stands for Apple!

So have you shot his blog?

Received an email from Reno of Sho()ot My Blog.

I quote the purpose of his blog:

Take an original photo of my blog with your digital camera or mobile phone and send it to shootmyblogAThotmail.com. There’s only one requirement : your computer monitor or laptop (with my blog title/homepage visible on the screen) must appear somewhere in the photo. Be VERY imaginative and creative, and your original pic (with your link on it) will be published on Shoot my Blog : a totally bizarre photoblog… a totally bizarre way to CATCH people’s attention on your website and to promote it !

This is the first time that I came across a concept like this. He has already received 46 photos (at the time of this post) and I’m sure a lot more are going to pour in.
I think I will participate in his contest.

Now I have to think of a unique idea to sho()ot his blog!

The Beauty of Maths

My dad sent me this via email and found them really cool. Here’s for maths lovers to go all oohh.. aah about…

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888

Brilliant, isn’t it?

And finally, take a look at this symphony:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111=12345678987654321
