Day 3 Report: Christ Is Born! Glorify Him!

Title stolen from starfish82 in venial contravention of the 8th Commandment. ;-)


Sculpture in the lobby of the Hyatt

Guess how many balls are in the above sculpture!
Closest guess wins a custom filk from banazir, Tolkien or otherwise.

The drive home was nice and quick - 01:50 thanks to yours truly. (Hey, exceeding the speed limit only counts as trasking the 5th Commandment if they're awake, kthxbye!1)

1 Oh! Speaking of which... stay tuned.

First Day of Christmas, following my personal LJ tradition (started in 2003):
'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus - Louisa M. R. Stead (lyrics) and William J. Kirkpatrick (score), 1882

Merry Christmas, everyone,
Banazir

The exceeding?

Then bully for you, it's not a problem atoll!
(Well, until you try to bluff your way out of a ticket; that probably falls under the rubric of false witness. But hey, you know better'n I, and s'not for me to judge, anyhoo! ;-))

Re: Honor thy mother and the father the speed demons
Hey, now - I've NEVER bluffed my way out of a ticket - only been pulled over once, back before JT and I were married... and I was honestly as confused as I appeared, I didn't realize he had pulled me over for speeding on the road I had just turned off of. He asked me if the speedometer was working and I answered honestly. And he let me go and told me to go slower.

JT was somewhat annoyed that I got off with just a verbal warning :)

Qualitative guesswork
First guess is....alot?
LOL, only quantitative guess count.

But...umm...15625 give or take. ;-)
Psst... I think that's a lille bit high. In fact, I'll bet that ends up being the high guess.

Looks like you had a good time!
Oh, very.

Merry Christmas!!!
Merry Christmas to you as well, Rebecca!

Ooh, see - maybe we should've stayed at the HYATT instead of the Westin when Ro and I were out there! Then maybe I'd know the answer.

Hm... may be going out again soon..... maybe it'll be Hyatt this time ;)

Ooo
Hehe, well, this contest is open until someone gets within... oh, say, 10%.

Do you know, the CWC workshop was at the Westin the first year it was in KC (2002)... they moved to the Hyatt... why? Because the Westin has that skybridge to the mall.

I'd hold forth on what a sad state the world is in when Eru Iluvatar has to vie for attention with a shopping mall, but I'd sound like preacher Bana, which I'm so not. :-D

Oh, well.

Near-cuboid
It's almost a cuboid or parallelipiped (I couldn't quite tell myself).

Rough estimate of 1330... but it's hard to tell the exact shape of this thing from the photo... how many peaks does it have? 4? 5?
banazir
Dec. 26th, 2004 10:59 am (UTC)
Peaks: about 8
I'm not sure if it is exactly 8, but it looked like 8 to me.

Re: Peaks: about 8
Oooh... I thought it's a pyramid. So it's not a regular shape? In that case, my rough estimate raises to 3000... can't be more precise until I know more about the shape...
banazir
Dec. 26th, 2004 05:30 pm (UTC)
Depends on what you mean by "regular shape"
The regular solids include the following: tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron.

It's definitely not a tetrahedron.

I'm not sure if it's a cuboid (rectangular solid) turned on its axis or a skewed solid with four parallelogram sides (parallelipiped).

Raising to 4000, in that case.
You sure 'parallelipiped' is not a kind of a bug with fat legs? ;)

Or something like that.

Well, within an order of magnitude, at least.

I think.

Hrm...
... this is shaping up to be an interesting distribution of guesses.

How did you arrive at your estimate, Nedise?

Re: Hrm...
You basically did what I did. (Seriously, I found that same picture, and calculated it out) but I liked 4242 because I origianlly joked 42, and 4242 is close enough to 4250 which is about what I calculated, I figured 4242 was close enough to my real answer it would be worth it to make a joke out of it ;)

Guess:
A countable number.
