It is blowing my mind!
It's called "art".
Ok, all you dumb dudes can chime in now.
So you think you are smarter than me huh?
I understand a little about the bottle itself. there is a page explaining how it was created. My problem is that I am horrible with anything science/math related and I was hoping someone could break it down for me. Where is Mike Money the math genius when you need him?!?!?
Am i missing something? Just looks like a funny shaped glass bottle to me!
Sorry, too drunk to explain.
Ahhhh, this is the best I can do, homes....
Did he just ask for Mike because he needs something explained to him?!
Just messin with ya MM
Back on topic.....
Cool stuff, Id be interested in having one as a novelty item if I wasnt saving up for gear.
Hey! We must be drunk together! Cheeers!!
I checked out the links and I am still really lost. I am not that great with math.
Which part is the one that you dont understand?
The trick is that if you start on a line, you go through both the inside and the outside, without leaving that line - so it looks like it only has one surface.
There is a similar thing: the Moebius-band/ribbon/ or however it is in English. that is even easier: it is like a belt (the type that you wear), but there is a half twist in it: that means, where you fasten it, the one end is in normal position, but the other end has its inside out. when oyu follow the center line of the belt, it will go on both sides (without lifting you hand or gong over an edge) - that means it' got one surface; one even weirder thing is when you cut a Moebius-band along the center line, it woont fall into two halves - instead it will be twice as big try it! (but not with your belt, if possible! )
For those of you still looking: "Zero Volume Head".
x = cos(u)*(cos(u/2)*(sqrt_2+cos(v))+(sin(u/2)*sin(v)*cos(v)))
y = sin(u)*(cos(u/2)*(sqrt_2+cos(v))+(sin(u/2)*sin(v)*cos(v)))
z = -1*sin(u/2)*(sqrt_2+cos(v))+cos(u/2)*sin(v)*cos(v)
Anymore unnecessary questions??
As if I have a clue what any of that means!!
Thanks, I got stumped right at the part: ")*(sqrt_2+cos(v)".
Is this your way of telling us you want more gear?
My favourite thread this year! An example of elementary trigonometry in a real but functionally useless form! Elegance does not equal grace.....
OK, I'll put the beanie away now...
Yipes....looks like I picked the wrong time to quit sniffing glue.
It's a bong for physics majors.
That's what I was thinking
