That graph might be sexy, but the equation is downright fugly compared to e^{i*pi} + 1 = 0, aka "Euler's identity."

I will not allow your pedantry to detract from the fact that y = mx + b and, apparently, fishnets.


See, even y = mx + b has got nothing on y - y0 = m (x - x0). Or, ooh, ooh! (x - x0)^2 + (y - y0)^2 = r^2. Oh, circle, you've got it going on. Oh, you look so good.

Er, sorry Tim... but I'm straight.

(I just made myself laugh SOOOO hard!)

Wait, now the circle is gay? I'm confused.

The line is straight, and Robin is homolinear.

Historically, mathematical shapes are attracted to those different from themselves: cf. The Dot and the Line,
