⬐ comicehe's too humble to mention the Knuth is my Homeboy tshirts: https://geekz.co.uk/shop/ that once existed :)⬐ trompSeveral of my T-shirts feature this design:
On the back I put the 232-bit BLC version .
For math designs, it's hard to beat
Obligatory link to Donald Knuth mishearing this question as "What Makes a Good T-Shirt?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=74BfHoE66rc&feature...
⬐ simonebrunozziWhat a great find. Made me smile for a few minutes! Thanks for sharing.
Taking the opportunity to post the video of Knuth mishearing the question "What makes a good teacher?" as "What makes a good T-shirt?" at my uni.
⬐ martythemaniakI wish the guy would have let him answer as to what the CompSci equivalent of that T-Shirt is.⬐ blattimwind⬐ ravishiRight? Because of that interruption we never get to have Don Knuth approved compsci T-shirts. Think before you act!⬐ StavrosKIs there any way we could ask him? I don't wear Compsci T-shirts but I would wear a Don Knuth-designed one.⬐ bredrenThe word he used was "a t-shirt that would be an _analog_."⬐ mindgam3A few years ago, while doing a bit of a family history research project (Knuth was my father's PhD advisor at Stanford), I stumbled across a rather awesome t-shirt design. May I humbly submit "Knuth is my homeboy" as my entry to the CompSci t-shirt contest. (not my own design, to be clear, I just came across it on the internet)
And here is a shot of the recursive shirt in action: https://laughingsquid.com/jacob-appelbaum-donald-knuth-demon...That is so cool! He really liked the question!⬐ codelordI lived in Sweden for a while, Swedes are very proficient in English. Yet, they almost always pronounce ch as sh. They even have TV ads that make fun of this.⬐ glormph⬐ dgutIt took me the longest time before I understood that ad, since the sheep speaks fluent "American".
While on pronounciation topics, how does one pronounce "Knuth"? Is the k silent like in "know"?
Edit: According to Wikipedia it is kə-NOOTH.⬐ waterhouseReminds me of this ad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yR0lWICH3rY
"Mayday! ... We're sinking! We're sinking!"
"What are you sinking about?"That's funny. This is the best thing I've ever found on HN. Thank you.⬐ sus_007Thanks for sharing this. Definitely made my day :D⬐ areskiI want that T-shirt now!⬐ osrecReminds me a bit of Professor Neutron (Bob Newhart) in the Big Bang Theory!⬐ knodi123that's my favorite gag from the Firefly tv show.
Simon: Are you Alliance?
Early: Am I a lion?
Early: I don't think of myself as a lion. You might as well though, I have a mighty roar.
Simon: I said "Alliance."
Early: Oh, I thought...
Simon: No, I was...
Early: That's weird.⬐ iniminoWhat a wonderful and genuine human being! It helps explain why his books are so incredibly humane while remaining deep on a very broad topic. Thanks for sharing. ️
