Just a random observation (well, that's about 90% of my blog probably!), but this evening I'm wasting a bit of time browsing through Amazon.co.uk, on the lookout for ideas for my Xmas list and what I might be able to get for those nearest and dearest to me.
Anyway, for the first time ever, I thought I'd investigate the "Amazon recommends…" feature – of course Amazon has recorded every purchase I've ever made, and now feels it's in a position to offer me top tips for my next purchase. But some of it is just so damn surreal!
Ok, recommending a pair of headphones because I bought Shrek 2 on DVD… I can see some tenuous link there. But Sin City on DVD because I bought "A Short History of Nearly Everything"? A book called "100 Naked Girls" because I bought.. wait for it.. a memory card for my digital camera (I don't want to know what the connection is there..); and finally, a Jamie Oliver Flour Shaker because I bought a book called "Watching the English"?!?!?!?! I'm not usually one for swearing, even in acronyms, but WTF?!
And if that weren't random enough for ya
I just read that we can now include Latex in our entries…
where of course C(f) is the critical set…..
Sorry, the mathematician in me just wanted to try it out!
