Templus:

I attended a lecture,
On the twin prime conjecture,
They, like loving mates,
Fell not for the tempting bait,
With an even mean,
Interspersed in between,,
An infinity of them we have no proof,
But we are sure, this isnt a spoof!

Here is a nursery rhyme:

Fiddle de dum, Fiddle de dee,
A ring around the moon is pi times D
But if a hole you want repaired
You use the formula pi 'r' squared

More to follow,
Mally

This has been composed in jest and not to be taken seriously.

A Tribute To Paul Zillman and his avatar.

Ride a fast plane,
And dont spare the cash,
To see the math wizard
Do sums in a flash,
Roots on his fingers,
And powers on his toes,
He carries prime tables,
Wherever he goes.

Before playing the song, the video showed a string of numbers with the primes highlighted in red. They highlighted one.

e^0i = 1^p

Thats really great Paul! I have never come across it before.
You have a happy knack of pulling the rabbit out of the bag. Hats off to you. Also the eqn. is correct by DeMoivre's theorem.
