<2) How did the constipated mathematician arrive at a clever solution?>

In case you thought my answers above were bad, I should tell you I also considered an answer about pruning the solution space with prune juice, but I couldn't figure out a way to make it work.

The problems of course are not serious. Your answers are great--in some cases better than "the original" (I made none of these up myself).

1. spot on.

2. you have improved "he worked it out with a pencil"

3. spot on.

4. Traditional answer: "A large pizza will feed a family of 4"

5....

<OCF> That's a big 10-4.

btw there are a hundred of these U.S. police 10-codes.

Here's one to decipher:

<Officer Kelly here, I've just 10-41 and 10-23 of 10-16. I see 10-23 and 10-78, 10-18! Use 10-40 and 10-0! >

While a Ph.D in mathematics will do what? Become a quant on Wall Street and bring down the world economy with a flawed model for credit default swaps?

I think I don't know what that is.

Hope its not the kind of backup singers on a Justin Bieber release.

  Tiggler: <beatgiant>:<More seriously, by mathematical induction. Suppose a digestive system can output for all loads of size <= n. Now consider a load of size n+1. By the hypothesis, the system can output the first n pieces, and it can also output one piece. Thus, it can output the n+1 pieces. Now all the mathematician needed to do was to output one piece, and all the rest would follow easily!>>

Obviously you are a professional mathematician! Your proof makes me think of the proof that starts, "let n be the largest prime number ..."

  al wazir: <kellmano: Also, the UK pronunciation of 'squirreled' is very clearly two syllables.> Depends where in the U.K. you're from. Some people trill the 'r' and then it's definitely two, but some don't pronounce the 'r' at all and then it comes out as "skwəld." I think of this as the Oxbridge pronunciation, but I realize that Oxford and Cambridge aren't the oases of privilege that they used to be, so maybe that's wrong.

  Tiggler: <al wazir: <kellmano: Also, the UK pronunciation of 'squirreled' is very clearly two syllables.>>

Squirreled is definitely (at least) three syllables. Obviously you never tried to write haiku eg:

In summer rains (raynze - two syllables)
The stalks (stalkes -two syllables)of barley
Lift their heads (hedze - two syllables) aloft.

17 syllables.

  Tiggler: <beatgiant: <Tiggler> Does it have something to do with eclipses?>

Yes. Solar and lunar eclipses occur when the sun-earth radius passes through the nodes that are defined by the celestial line on which the planes intersect of the moon's orbit around earth and the earth's orbit around the sun. These node passages occur twice a year, but because of precession of the lunar orbit, it sometimes happens that a node is passed three times in a calendar year.

Eclipses only happen at full or new moon of course, but these need not coincide exactly with the passage through the ascending or descending nodes. There is an eclipse, total or annular of the sun or total of the moon, if the full or new moon occurs within a period of a little more than two weeks before or after the passage through the orbital nodes. That means that there are always two or three eclipses, separated by two weeks each, associated with each node passage: two if the passage occurs near first or last quarter of the lunar phase, and three if the passage occurs near full or total.

As a result there are always at least four eclipses per year, in which case they must be two lunar and two solar, or there can be as many as seven, with no more than four of one kind.

I'm sure that is all very plain?

Apr-18-14  weary willy: <Tiggler: Squirreled is definitely (at least) three syllables. Obviously you never tried to write haiku>

Hi - genuinely puzzled by this ... why should the inclusion of a word in a haiku change the number of syllables?! How can "heads" have anything other than one syllable? ("hey-edds??)

Apr-18-14

  Tiggler: <weary willy> The number of syllables depends on the sounds. You cannot say heads without saying hedse, because the s has an aspirate in it, which is a vowel sound.

In Japanese all syllables have equal weight, and they don't string consonants together without the vowels that have to go with them.

  al wazir: <Tiggler: There is an eclipse, total or annular of the sun or total of the moon, if the full or new moon occurs within a period of a little more than two weeks before or after the passage through the orbital nodes.> Huh?

The period of the Moon in its orbit about the Earth is 28 days, four weeks. Hence the occurrence of a full or new moon is *always* within two weeks of passage through a node.

Eclipses occur when the Earth, Sun, and Moon are lined up. This can happen only when the nodes are in line with the Earth--Sun radius -- but the Moon has to be in or very close to one of the nodes when that happens. This coincidence is relatively infrequent and most certainly does not happen four times every year.

  Tiggler: <alwazir>:<The period of the Moon in its orbit about the Earth is 28 days, four weeks. Hence the occurrence of a full or new moon is *always* within two weeks of passage through a node.>

Correct. So there are always at least two and sometimes three eclipses for each node passage.

<This coincidence is relatively infrequent and most certainly does not happen four times every year.>

Wrong. It happens at least four times every year.

Example: we had a lunar eclipse on April 15, and that was the first eclipse this year. So there has to be a solar eclipse on (on about) April 29, and there is: annular across a narrow strip of the southern ocean and Antarctica south of Australia.

The next pair will be in October this year.

Groups of three in succession are less frequent, and the next time that happens will be 2018.

Ah! You seem to know what you are talking about - thank you.

Where are the 7 syllables in: "The stalks of barley"? I see only 1 + 2 + 1 + 2

  al wazir: <Tiggler: Wrong. It happens at least four times every year.> I should have researched the subject before posting, instead of relying on my own reasoning, my pictures, and what I remembered. It seems that the line of nodes stays closely aligned with the Earth--Sun radius -- "closely" in the sense that it is within the solid angle subtended by the Moon -- for a relatively long time, long enough so that *isn't* an unlikely coincidence for the Moon to pass through it, contrary to what I wrote. Thanks for the correction.

That's easy for any nerd over 40. Cheap calculators came around the late 70s (or maybe 1980 depending on how you define "cheap"). The first spreadsheet was Visicalc which must have been a few years later, maybe 1982-3 or so?
