The Stupid Pages 31: Magic Number

The Stupid Pages 31: Magic Number

Guest post by James Arsenault, done as a present to his sister. The pattern will become clear. Partly inspired by a little too much Schoolhouse Rock, in particular the audio CD “Math Rock”, which we are pretty sure has no connection to certain bands from a decade or so ago, largely...
