My name is Matthew, I am a 20 year old acting student living in Wellington. Short, loud and slow are words that have been used to describe me. I like things and post words, pictures and videos related to these things.
If a mathematicianwants to cross a road, they will think carefully about their optimal path. The total distance of the path should be minimised, but they prefer walking on the sidewalk to the road. If there is no extra discomfort from being on the road, the best path is a straight line, but as it increases it is better to cross the road more directly. The resulting path is exactly the same as a ray of light refracting through a block of glass [with relative refractive index equal to the ratio of these ‘discomfort levels’]. Fermat’s principle says that light will want to spend less time in the glass (on the road), as it actually travels more slowly in the glass. [video] [code] [more]
That’s not how I cross the road at all. I start near perpendicular, because I want to get close to the other side, in case a car comes around a corner at me; as I get closer, I start to veer towards my destination, to take a more direct route, but still be able to jump onto the footpath if necessary.
I just cross the freaking road.
This is why we can’t hang out. I don’t even know which freaking direction you’re going to move in when you walk.
I just tend to drift towards you because you are so attractive
