I just wish he'd gone the full whack and used Comic Sans MS as the typeface!

### Re: 1080: "Visual Field"

In some cases (although definitely not for 100% of people), some of the mysterious floaters are the remains of the Hyaloid Artery, which supplied the front of the eye with blood during its early development - look up "persistent hyaloid" for the associated medical diagnosis.

### Re: The perfect Chess AI engine

Unlike tic-tac-toe, chess can theoretically go on for an infinite amount of moves. With infinite computing power, (mathematicians may argue on this one) it would still take an infinite amount of time to consider all possible moves to game ending. Take a scenario where there's just two kings and two ...

### Re: x^x^x^x^x=5?

x^(x^(x^(x^x))) = 5 Using X^Y = e^(Y ln(X) ) x^(x^(x^x)) = ln(5)/ln(x) x^(x^x) = ln(ln(5)/ln(x)) / ln(x) x^x = ln(ln(ln(5)/ln(x)) / ln(x)) / ln(x) x = ln(ln(ln(ln(5) / ln(x)) / ln(x)) / ln(x)) / ln(x) ln(ln(ln(ln(5) / ln(x)) / ln(x)) / ln(x)) / ln(x) - x = 0 Then a non-linear solver (aka trial and e...
