Octopi is not the plural of octopus. Octopus is Greek and octopi is Latin.

Octopuses is the the proper plural form of octopus.

Two obscure facts:

# is called an octotroph.

n# is the product of all the primes up to n (including n if n is prime).

Example:

10#=2x3x5x7=210

If you ingested about 1.5 grams of caffeine within a ten minute window, you'd die.

That is roughly 75 cups of coffee.

I am not a mathematician, so I don't have a good overview over all fields of mathematics. But I find complex analysis and the differential forms approach to multivariable calculus particulary beautiful. There is an excellent lecture course by Theodore Shifrin covering multivariable calculus and dif...

I do. At school I can't stop "peeling off" my eraser with my fingers. I also rub off my hair (on the head) root with my nails when I'm stressed. Do you feel an uncontrollable impulse to peel your eraser or rub off your hair? That could just be you stimming. Are you diagnosed with OCD? I t...

I was diagnosed with OCD. I believe I still suffer from OCD, but I am certainly in regression. I think I've had OCD since I was 6 years old. I can remember myself thinking that if I don't do something a certain way then something good won't happen. Like, if I don't run up the stairs without breathin...

Tie a rubber band around your wrist. Whenever you feel pissed off during a conversation, pull the rubber band back so that it hits your wrist.

That most certainly is because you are compiling Python 3 code with Python 2. The right way to compile it is python3 program.py. If you want to compile it with Python 2, you should do the following: person = raw_input ('Enter your name: ') print 'I hate the name', person This fixed it, thank you.

I have made a extremely basic program using what I learned about inputs and outputs, it is a bit crude. person = input ('Enter your name: ') print ('I hate the name', person) I saved it as program.py and in the terminal I ...

Why? Masturbation is a healthy exercise, provided you change the way you masturbate sometimes. Masturbating the same way each time could make you unresponsive to different sexual stimulation.
