I presume you are joking , if not, today's word is "trigonometry":
http://en.wikipedia....ki/Trigonometry

I'm joking, but the equations are related when plotting the circle on the Cartesian plane.

Tau is the future!

the way of mathematics is to make stuff up and see what happens

LOL. Couldn't agree more.

Seriously, they are NOT "related", they are EXACTLY the SAME one.

@jaclaz
@5eraph
Thanks for the great fun !
I absolutely loved the fraction cats concept and image.
Ditto for Eastwood 6 vs. 5.
The Reuleaux triangle was completely new to me (i.e., educational).
What a treasure trove of images !
That is, are all these images copyright free (i.e., in the public domain) ?

I guess you never know, AFAICU that is just a hosting site, people uploads images to it so IF the original uploader is the copyright owner of the image, then it can be considered PD, otherwise it may be a Copyrighted image uploaded by someone else but the rights owner.

I guess everything is up to you, only thing, do not, and when I say DO NOT, I mean DO NOT divide by zero:

Thanks, jaclaz, for taking time to give that detailed explanation about public domain at dump4free.
I guess you're right, "you never know".
I noticed at dump4free that a lot of the images had someone's name associated with them, but you just don't know if they were the copyright owners or not.
So, I guess one should just follow Picasso's dictum and "steal, baby, steal" (to paraphrase a bit -- lol).
Those were cute kitties. (I guess blackturbokitty should like your kitty pics.) I wonder what the kittens think about their owner putting them through all that silly mischief.
That river image was indeed spooky. I could feel myself getting sucked down.
I loved the Op Art dividing by zero. Very mesmerizing. (I love Op Art, in general.) If you like art and don't know about Bridget Riley, she was one of the founders of Op Art in the 60s. You can check out her early paintings on Google images, if interested. Her work is very subtle and highly effective.
It would take 4 monkeys and a baboon to carry THAT gun.
Pee-Wee Herman loves dividing by zero, because that takes him to "infinity" (in an asymptotic sense, of course).
Here is how Pee-Wee reacts when he divides by zero:
Reaction 1
Reaction 2
Reaction 3
Reaction 4

@jaclaz
I liked your kitten infinity, but loved your Op Art real infinity. (I'm going to do a Pee-Wee Herman infinity image like that, but instead of the infinity symbol in the "deep-space" background, it will combine Pee-Wee's image with the infinity symbol. It will be easy to do, but I can't get to it soon, as I have some other stuff to finish up first. I'll post the image on this thread as well as on my Graphics and Designing Art thread.)

We've been focusing on cats, but we mustn't forget about the dogs, in my opinion.
My favorite dog art is by contemporary New Orleans, Louisiana Cajun artist George Rodrigue.
He puts the same "Blue Dog" -- (with variations of the same basic dog image) -- in a number of different situations.
I think if van Gogh were alive today and painting dogs, he would paint something like the Blue Dog.
Blue Dog 1
Blue Dog 2
Blue Dog 3
Blue Dog 4
Blue Dog 5
Blue Dog 6
et cetera
et cetera
et cetera
et cetera
et cetera
et cetera "infinitum" (as Pee-Wee Herman would say, in Latin)

Fact is that cats are - generally speaking - more suitable to be lolised (or lollified? ).

I have both cats and dogs, but the former are IMHO much more "fun" to watch, and, with a few exceptions:.

dogs are too "good" and "serious" (and "lazy"):

Specs: 119 total frames (62 unique frames), 0.30 second display time per frame, 100x80px, 16 KB.
jaclaz, I made the animated GIF MSFN avatar size -- (knowing full well that animations can't be used as avatars) -- so that I could make some static images that you might want to use as your MSFN Avatar:
Avatar 1, http://postimage.org/image/ln22pc9bl/
Avatar 2, http://postimage.org/image/9jzgmgkhr/
I think I prefer Avatar 2, because of the "soft elegance" of the lettering.
I think these Avatars would really jazz up your Posts, but, of course, the decision on whether or not to use them is yours to make.

I am also going to Post these images on my thread at the Graphics and Designing Art Forum titled "custom avatars and signatures" (Specifically, Post # 209). For those of you who haven't checked out my thread, you can find it here. Please visit the thread. Thanks!
