Fun trivia: in 4th grade I bombed out of a spelling bee I was absolutely dominating when I spelled “occasion” as “occassion.” That fucking word haunts me still to this day.
John M. Henshaw’s An Equation For Every Occassion is a book I read at a clip of two equations a day. That is, this book is a collection of 52 essays about 52 equations. Some equations I knew, some I didn’t. Some equations foundational (like Ohm’s Law), some quite trite (like how to convert dog years to human years). It was light reading that I’ve been doing in the background for the past month. Weird reading, too, when I picked it up after reading a chapter of From Hell.
