# PUN (incenter versus circumcenter)

The long-standing rivalry between the incenter and the circumcenter was permanently weighted in favor of the circumcenter when the circumcenter had the perspicacity to set up a refreshment area (with free donuts and coffee) that it designated as ‘Drop-In Center’, whose subliminal message will surely have a telling effect in the long run. keywords: [Mathematics] … Continue reading PUN (incenter versus circumcenter)

# OBSERVATION (universe of motion)

We live, as Dewey B. Larson pointed out, in a universe of motion. However, deviation from the truth is the default form of motion (which, ironically, is why credit has been accruing to him so slowly for his insight). Hence, setting the record straight, which is also a form of motion, is always an uphill … Continue reading OBSERVATION (universe of motion)
