Re: Death of jetZILLA Predicted

Hi Larry, Here's a possible alternative to quibbling with the Zilla Gods -- you could exercise your constitutionally protected right to parody Godzilla.

Dead Milkmen, PJs and PHS (putting the "Ram" in "Ramjet"?)

Figured I'd open up a new thread in light of the fact that "Sebastian LFT" and I apparently graduated from the same high school (and in order to avoid squatting on WebPilot's MotorPsycho's thread, where this fact was first revealed). Damn -- what a small world. There are a few quasi-famous people th...

Eat My Paisley!

Wow "The Dead Milkmen" -- I went to high school with "Dean Clean" and Dave Reckner.

What would Sir S. Froyd say ?

Synchronized oscillators etc.

Self synchronizing systems, especially synchronized chaotic systems, are one of my favorite mathematical topics. If anyone is interested in the topic, a good search phrase is "synchronization manifold". Some of the math is surprisingly accessible. A closely related topic is the Ott-Grebogi-Yorke (OG...
