Math *IS* Fun

"Pinky, what is 'Troz'"?
"Why, it's 'Zort' in a mirror, Brain. TROZ!"

I'm still not entirely satisfied with this, but I wanted to put it to the "is it obvious what it is without me explaining it" test.

Re: Math *IS* Fun

The left image is 'fun', the right image is 'math', and they are mirror images of each other.

If someone had shown me those images out of nowhere, I wouldn't have seen it, but as I know what they're meant to be, there's definitely something there.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Ah I see it now.

I saw that "zort in a mirror" episode in Pinky and The Brain. Brain roxxors! He should be a calculus teacher.

After your explanation, I finally get it. At first, I thought they were some scribbling of something unknown to me.

Re: Math *IS* Fun

Cool. Very nice, ryos! It just took me a little bit of switching back and forth between the two pictures to get it... I think the thing that got me was the 'a' in math.

Maybe an idea for a future banner theme... smile

Thanks, guys! I'll see if I can improve it now - my computer has decided to rebel against me. Launching Illustrator might just do it in... neutral

Spot the differences! The a/u now has a loopy thing. The bottom of the pyramid looking thing is curved.

Interesting pictures. Took me a while to decipher. Thought it was written in some kind of code - Silly me. Nice images though, ryos. ^_^
