Southpark "Math Is...Universal" Poster
For fans of the long-running Comedy Central show Southpark, above is a re-creation of that poster seen in the
background of Mr. Garrison's 4th grade classroom, the famous "Math Is...Universal" poster. The astronomical
image is known commonly as the keyhole nebula, which is a smaller part of the Carina nebula.
The font used is called arcon. I had it printed at Walgreen's photo printing services, at a size of 16 inches by 20 inches for around $25.
Download the full-sized poster, send it to Walgreens (or other printing services) print, and hang in plain sight! You never know what 4th grader will be inspired...
Below are some intersting examples of fractals created using a language called postscript, a language
known mostly for displaying fonts, and is generally generated by other programs and is not written by humans.
They are generated as you open them inside an Adobe PDF document. Below are the Barnsley Fern, the Koch Snowflake,
and the Gingerbread Man map. I think I found them
