Let's try this...
Unparseable latex formula:

[br]\Large\hspace{5}\unitlength{1} \picture(175,100){ (50,50){\circle(100)} (1,50){\overbrace{\line(46)}^{4\$\;\;a}} (52,50){\line(125)} (50,52;115;2){\mid} (52,55){\longleftar[60]} (130,56){\longrightar[35]} (116,58){r} (c85,50;80;2){\bullet} (c85,36){\large-q} (c165,36){\large q} (42,30){\underbrace{\line(32)}_{\small a^2/r\;\;\;}} }

Patch: Wow it works.. I really want to learn this stuff now.
I am going to be in Robinson on 17th! Apparently I've been invited as a "scholar"... Wow... I never thought I was a scholar.

for that surface integral it ends up that it points upwards, because all the other directions cancel out, and the answer is 2 pi. the integrals not difficult just convert to spherical polars i think it was.

If you realise that all directions can be ignored except the one point up ward... you don't even have to convert it to spherical polar to do it. use n=(0,0,1) with the vector field. Since you are just integrate it over a circular disc, you can take the value of z as 0 then you end up with $\large 2\int dS= 2\pi$ since r is 1.
I was just in my physics supervision and my physics supervisor said..."lets look at young's double slit experiment.....did you know young was a fellow at emmanuel and thought about light interference by looking at the pond in the paddock...and that the room you're sitting in right now is part of the set of rooms young lived and worked in!"

That is so damn cool!

If you take the piss out of yourself too often, you'll end up looking like me... a naked dancing baby....... Shameless.

Hehehe I'm known for having no sense of shame or embarrassment

A naked dancing baby... now a cute naked dancing man wouldn't be so bad...

Only kidding :marchmell
You'd better be kidding

That is just plain nasty.

I guess that is one thing about Oxbridge...there is a LOT of history!

I wasn't referring to Camford if that's what you mean

I read your other comment as "a naked dancing boy"...

Sorry

i finally found watson and crick's plaque last week.
I saw watson at crick's memorial ceremony:|

Sorry

Lol

Yeh I do have a tendency of saying one thing, meaning one thing, but it coming out as an entirely different thing!!!!!!! - I did that once on the phone was oh so embarrassing - had a great laugh though.

Yeh I'd originally written something else cus I was using Camford's analogy, posted it a split second before I realised it'd come out wrong so went back and editted it.

If any of you subcribers decides to see what I'd written originally - which I *think* you can do - then know that I didn't mean it like that!

subs cant see the original message:|

though i do remember seeing something rather different
Did you originally write "a male...man"? Or did I imagine it?

The trouble is, a lot of it is embellished. All that *******s about the Mathematical Bridge and the descendant of the apple tree...

Wasn't THAT tree somewhere in Lincolnshire?
despite the tale about the mathematical bridge being false....is there any truth in it being built by a mathmo? Surely it's name must have come from somewhere!

I heard that at one time it was a proper self-supporting bridge and then some curious students took it apart to see how it was done and couldn't put it back together, hence the bolts. Probably rubbish though!
There stands on my shelf is a bottle of wine from the mighty Sainsbury's. A normal bottle of wine, nothing is so special about the package, the price or the maker. It is rare, so to speak, nonetheless. It is the only bottle that's known in Pembroke to have been to two fomals and survived the greasy hands of students in the rather gloomy hall.

yes that is what i mean by a false tale. That is supposedly all made up...yet it must have got it's name from somewhere
