Today the creator of the Yurito character essays pressed into my clawlike hand the draft of an awesome story he is working on with Euler as the central figure. The story is written as Euler’s diary, complete with Leonhardian mathematical scribblings winding their way around the margins. Pretty neat stuff. Once I am not under the gun of imminent comprehensive exams, I’ll figure out a way of getting the full thing up here, but for the moment you can enjoy an unfortunately scribbleless section over at the Fan Art page.
My favorite line: “It will be the most prestigious school in all the world – nay, in all of Europe, even!” The suggestion that, to a 18th century European mathematician, adding anything to Europe actually lessens Europe strikes me as remarkably psychologically accurate.
Oh! And Mark Poutenis over at Thinking Ape Blues has created a strip revolving around Falco, perhaps my favorite singer ever in the history of man (also the creator of one of the greatest music videos ever). Check out the strip, then sit back and enjoy Falco’s unparalleled ability to stylishly walk between two parallel lines of people. Why, Falco, why did you leave us?!!!
