This legitimately upsets me.

… Y’see, now, y’see, I’m looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.

So you might end up with more donuts.

But then I also think… Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?

Hrm.

HRM.

A round donut with radius R1 occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R1. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R2 and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R2, then the area of a round donut is πR12 - πr22. The area of a square donut would be then 4R12 - 4R22. This doesn’t say much, but in general and  throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.

The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (
R2 = R1/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15πR12/16 ≃ 2,94R12, square: 15R12/4 = 3,75R12). Now, assuming a large center hole (R2 = 3R1/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7πR12/16 ≃ 1,37R12, square: 7R12/4 = 1,75R12). This tells us that, approximately, we’ll have a 27% bigger donut if it’s square than if it’s round.

tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.

{If I might be allowed to rant for a moment, I want to talk about why I love this scene so much, and why it’s probably my favorite out of the entire movie.

Up until this point in the movie, it’s been about trying to get Jack to join the Guardians, trying to show him that it’s worth it to become one of them. Yes, they’re doing other things, but it’s obvious that’s at least a secondary goal from their behavior; they WANT Jack to help them, so they’re doing what they can to make him see their side of things.

And then we get this scene, where the very people who should be most comfortable with children are…pretty much afraid of children. It’s a scene where, for once, Jack gets to show them something. He gets to show them that, even if he doesn’t have some fancy title like they do or a clear job description, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a place in the world. No, he can’t be seen in it, but he’s immersed himself so much in it that he’s completely comfortable with it, whereas the Guardians are all awkward and out of place.

Notice the way they’re all standing in this scene. Before this, they were all four clustered together, like they were a team fighting against an enemy. The minute Sophie shows up, it’s Jack who relaxes, Jack who separates himself from the group. Tooth, Bunny, and North are still clustered together, though. Bunny is scared to death that she’s going to harm his eggs, Tooth isn’t sure how to identify with her, and North is just plain confused in this whole situation. They view handling children as just another challenge, as a battle, because they’re so wrapped up in the unimportant details of their jobs that they forget who it’s all for: the children.

Jack’s the one in this scene that gets to save the day. He’s the only one who realizes that Sophie is not a threat, but just a little girl who wandered a little too far out of bed. He’s the only one who keeps a cool head long enough to show the other Guardians that they’re being silly in their behavior and there’s nothing to be afraid of. To me, that’s much more important than their journey to try and turn him into a Guardian, because the fact of the matter is that Jack was already a Guardian, and this scene proves it}

dataSTICKIES are the next generation of data portability. They are graphene-based flash drives that replace USB pen drives and hard discs.

USB-based drives can be inconvenient to use as the positioning and insertion of the drive in the USB slot needs to be done precisely. When the slots are at the rear of a device, as is the case for many desktop computers, this task becomes even more troublesome.

dataSTICKIES solve this problem by carrying data like a stack of sticky-back notes. Each of the dataSTICKIES can be simply peeled from the stack and stuck anywhere on the optical data transfer surface (ODTS), which is a panel that can be attached to the front surface of devices like computer screens, televisions, music systems, and so on. The special conductive adhesive that sticks the dataSTICKIES to the ODTS is the medium that transfers the data. This special low-tack, pressure-sensitive adhesive is capable of being reused without leaving marks like a repositionable note. When the dataSTICKIES are being read by the device, their edges light up.

"It sure is." He smiled.

Eve held her hand out as a slow, free falling snowflake landed in her palm. It disappeared as a small drop of water the second it hit her skin. She watched the snow fall for a while, watching as it melted and gathered to cover the roads and pavements.
