Project TILT: Belphegor's prime

While reading the news yesterday, I came across an article about the Halloween episode of The Simpsons. The article focused on the third segment (Homer3) of the show wherein Mathematics was depicted to cause horrors to Homer and other members of Springfield. It (news article) then goes to mention Belphegor's prime, which did not make it to the show. The author noted that this is a "terrifying number" suitable for a Halloween episode of The Simpsons. The number is 1,000,000,000,000,066,600,000,000,000,001. Belphegor's prime "is named after one of the seven princes of hell (Belphegor), because it has 666 at its heart and 13 zeroes either side of the number of the beast" . It is a prime number, which means that except for one and the number itself, you cannot divide it without getting a remainder. By the way, the seven princes of hell are: Lucifer: pride Mammon: greed Asmodeus: lust Leviathan: envy Beelzebub: gluttony Satan: wrath Belphegor:

For My Wifey

Thank you. This is the first and foremost sentiment that I want to express to you for being the best soon-to-be-mom for our baby. And when I say best, I mean, really the BEST. From reading pregnancy books and blogs to preparing/buying all the things that our baby should have, you make sure that everything is ok before our beloved baby comes out.

It's been a while since I last posted a "real" blog entry here, which is basically because I haven't found any time to stop and do some idle thinking. Isip-isip din pag may time. Currently, most of my time are spent on work, travel (to and from work, hindi bakasyon), check-up for baby, shopping for baby, shopping with baby's  mommy (=P), preparing the house for baby's arrival, watching TV series (just finished seasons one and two of Sherlock ), playing computer games (Injustice: Gods Among Us), and sleeping, in no particular order (though my wife would probably point out the last two activities as the most time-consuming). Work is great, so I'll leave it as is. Travel is, as usual, so stressful especially during rush hours. Bakit ba kasi hindi pa palitan ang mga bus, jeep, FX, at tricycle ng mas efficient na mass transportation system? Baby shopping is wifey's favorite past-time since she became pregnant. It's amazing what having a future baby
