Hey, you know who’s still with us? As it turns out?
|It is mighty peculiar that the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church is located in Topeka, Kansas, which has many postal zip codes of the form 666**.
But while looking into this, I stumbled across something even more thought-provoking.
Some background information…
As you can verify, if a regular tetrahedron is embedded in the spherical Earth, with a vertex at the South Pole, the other three vertices will have a latitude whose sine is 1/3. This comes out to Arcsin(1/3) = 19.47122063 degrees North, which is rounded off to 19.5 degrees. Mystical sites of ancient Egypt and the Aztec empire had this latitude — and still do!
The Euler number is a coefficient of a certain equation defined in that Wikipedia article. An Euler number is not be be confused with the Mascheroni constant (colloquially, “the Euler constant”), which is .57721 56649 … .
The above-cited “holyspiritvictorious” site says, “The Euler Number begins with .577…. This should not be confused with the Euler Constant, which is different.” No, the truth is just the opposite: the Euler Constant begins with .577… and should not be confused with an Euler Number.
The square root of 1/3 is sqrt(1/3) = .577350269…, which is close to the Euler constant. And even more astoundingly, it is equal to the reciprocal of the square root of 3. Mere coincidence?
How would you determine the square root of a number? Would you use a calculator? No, that’s not scientific. Here is the recommended method:

P.S. Here’s an idea for a TV show that is bound to gain a devoted following: “Keeping Up with the Illuminati”. Whom should we get to host it?
As Mark Spahn notes, the tetrahedron must be inserted into a spherical earth; as we know, the earth is an oblate spheroid (and has been for some time; actually, it’s more spherical now than ever thanks to a slowly, almost imperceptible slowing of our rotation). Because the earth is oblate, you have to distort the tetrahedron to make this trick work. If you don’tand use the actual Earth’s dimensionsthe points of a perfect tetrahedron line up with the South Pole, Boca Raton, Florida, Awbari, Libya, and Hong Kong. This is even stranger, because if you take the central postal codes of each of those communities, multiply them by the Euler number, you wind up with Val Kilmer’s cell phone number. Check it out. Or just Google it.
On the other paw, the Czar is well-versed with Euler equations because they describe, among other things, the rotation of a thrown, bladed object. Axes and knives, for example, both of which are something the Czar throws very well. And often.
We would like to thank you, Mark Spahn, for sending us math equations in the mail, rather than sending them to GorT who would fail to appreciate them in such a symbolic manner. Worse, you could have sent them to Puter, who would have forever failed to log into his email account and reply to decades of reader mail.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
