Yes, when I'm not making math comics, I'm wasting way too much time playing Farmville on Facebook. One of the features that they have is to take pictures of your farm and allow you to post them. Naturally, I saw the comic potential there, and I've posted some comics on this blogs as Bonus comics, not in the regular numbering, mostly because I don't own the artwork.
What makes me want to take today to flaunt Home of the Original Farmville Funnies?
Well, yesterday I was given a heads-up that I stole the name of the feature.
By someone who started using it about 8 months AFTER I first used it.
Now, someone might have beaten me to using it given that it's an obvious thing to call them, but it definitely wasn't the Anonymous poster.
So lest anyone believe that I actually stole anything, here is a listing of the five Farmville-themed comics I did before getting it out of my system:
I, personally, am on Google+. Unfortunately, when I clicked on the invitation to join, which was sent to my hotmail account, I was logged into gmail as mrburkemath and not my personal gmail account (which I really don't use because I still have the hotmail account).
Anyway, I am on Google+ as mrburkemath, but don't expect to see comics and stuff realeased or promoted regularly on it.
I bring this up because a total stranger added me to his circles. It turns out that he's an educator and probably follows either the comic or the entire blog. I have no problem with that, but you're more likely to hear me talk about science fiction or Munchkin or what a day it's been than about math or webcomics.
And, yes, it's really, really much bigger than that, but there aren't enough letters in the alphabet for all those conditions. On the flip side, the chance of being wrong is really, really small (cf. infinitesmal).
EDIT: Yes, only half the table is there. The final column uses u as if it were v, which is missing. My odds of being right just went up to 99.2%! So this comic falls into the 0.8.
Mr. Burke is a high school math teacher in New York as well as a part-time writer, and a fan of science-fiction/fantasy books and films.
He started making his own math webcomic totally by accident as a way of amusing his students and trying to make them think just a little bit more.
