This joke surfaced while I was talking with Darren yesterday. He claimed that polar graphs were racist. It sounded absurd at first, but just wait and you’ll find out more about this.
After hearing that statement, I decided to Google search this. The only result I found was that “polar graphs…show patters of racism”. That was the only explanation I got, so I decided to go to the Wikipedia Reference Desk for Mathematics.
I posted my question there, and waited. After a day, here’s some comments I got:
There is nothing inherently race oriented in the definition of polar graphs. Specific instances of polar graphs might be considered racist.
Presumably because they are based on Poles – that’s as worthy of the word “joke” as the likelihood that Fermat had a solution to the Riemann hypothesis.
Did a manic-depressive invent those ?
I would have said that Cartesian graphs are more racists than polar ones.
Clearly a revolutionary approach is needed.

Peace out and ha-ha!
The answer: of course not!
Apparently, in World History class, we were doing a crossword that had to do with European Exploration and Colonization of the World. One of the questions on the cross word was:
11 (Across): Hernando Cortez conquered which Mexican tribe in 1521?
We already knew that the second letter was a “Z”, but didn’t know the answer. In fact, I didn’t even read the question. This one guy, by the name of Reggie, asked me what the answer to 11 Across was. I looked at the row and made up the word “Ezbco”. It doesn’t make sense that Hernando Cortez conquered the Ezbco tribe, but Reggie actually believed it. He even asked the teacher if the answer was “Ezbco”. At that point I broke into an uncontrollable laughter that lasted ten minutes.
Hernando Cortez conquered the Aztecs.
I made up other words for some of the crossword answers like “Macon” (Question was “Which port did Columbus sail from?”). They actually believed me a few times even though they knew they fell for the first one.
I did a Google search on “Ezbco” and guess what? It searched, and our blog was the FIRST ONE on its list of results. :-O !!!
Would someone really drink Coke with Hot Tamales? At my school, yes!
I am here to report something that happened at my lunch table.
Apparently, this one kid by the name of Eric put about twenty hot tamales into a full can of soda. Then, another guy, Ethan, took a sip of it and he could barely stand the spiciness. Then, another kid by the name of Tyrone took the can of soda and chugged it down like he hadn’t drunk in four days. His reaction wasn’t that bad, considering that Ethan had a flush-red face after just sipping a little bit.
I am Deathgleaner, and will report any future things that happen at my school.
This one is SO funny!
Game show host: “What is the capital of France?”
After all, F is the only capital letter in France.
I will try to keep updated on anything that happens around my high school.
This is one of the funniest videos ever. Most of the other videos from collegehumor are funny too.
Now, on to the Chrome part.
Google Chrome, Google’s new open source browser, only for Windows (as of this writing) looks cool.
I’m just writing about Chrome right now because I’m now actually on a Windows machine. You most likely know that I stick with OS X Leopard or Linux. But, Google hasn’t gotten those done yet. So I have to deal with *shudder* Windows to use Chrome.
Chrome is fairly fast, and has a fair amount of animation (like closing, opening and switching tabs). Also, it was fast to setup.
I plan to use Chrome on Mac anad Linux as soon as they come out.
One annoying thing is that there’s no adblocking. Google, I know you make money off those ads, but please incorporate adblocking into Chrome for the next release.
So, that’s it for this post. You have fun browsing the Internet (or crawling for those bots) but stay safe. (Use a REAL browser to look at that pr0n)
Here are some funny error messages I made up.
“Internet Explorer is a piece of crap, and has decided to close on you.”
“00x000x00 – Unreferenced decision to close.”
“Kernel Panic – Woah! You ugly freak!”
I noticed something very funny. Take a look at this source snippet (full web page is here):

Family Guy just too funny.
One funny part is:
Peter: I too will be abstinient. I’ll be as untouched as the turn signal in an Asian woman’s car.
Asian Woman: How much turn signal I need to cut across eight lane? None? I turn now! Good luck everyone!
[Asian Woman’s car hits several cars and an oil tanker which explodes.]
Then there’s the angry German kid.
