So, as I noticed, no-one's asked in a thread before about "Music" and what your taste is. So, here we are. A place to express yourself in the musical arts.

If you wish, you can post your favourite genre of music, your favoured band or even one of your most adored song. Do what you will but keep it musical.

Any reference to "cabbage slapping" will get deleted from this topic.

Favourite Genre: Ska.
Favourite Band: (Even though contradicting the favourite genre) Queen.
Favourie Song: (One of them is) 99 Red Balloons by Goldfinger.

You and I in a little toy shop
Buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got
Set them free at the break of dawn
'Til one by one they were gone
Back at base, bugs in the software
Flash the message, something's out there
Floating in the summer sky
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it's red alert
There's something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
As ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine decisions treat
Ninety-nine ministers meet
To worry, worry, super scurry
Call out the troops now in a hurry
This is what we've waited for
This is it, boys, this is war
The President is on the line
As ninety-nine red balloons go by

Neunundneunzig Kriegsminister
Streichholz und Benzinkanister
Hielten sich für schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer hätte das gedacht?
Daß es einmal so weit kommt
Wegen neunundneunzig Luftballons
Neunundneunzig Luftballons

Ninety-nine dreams I have had
And every one a red balloon
It's all over, and I'm standing pretty
In the dust that was a city
I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
Here it is, a red balloon
I think of you and let it go

That's an awesome one, thanks for reminding!!!  Dan Howitt

Welcome, Dan ! The forum has been great so far, haven't been here long myself. The regulars here are amazingly brilliant with maths.

I "love" those shirt pics ! Where are you finding them? Various places ?

I actually recently won an award for outstanding senior in the traditional option.  As a prize, I got two books, one of which is called John Nash.  It contains his original Ph.D. thesis in game theory (economics).  I have yet to try to go through it, but the coolest thing is the way they used to type of math papers.  They would type it on a type writer, leaving space for the math symbols, and go back and write them in by hand.

Nice job!  Congratulations!

Let me know how you liked Nash's book.
