Last night the Dollar Store Club met.
We were challenged by Kelly to use something from the "kids aisle" ... so off I trotted to my local Dollar Store and started looking at the selection.
My eyes went right to the Rubic's cubes -- and I immediately thought of my darling hubby *wink*. My hubby, for those who don't know him, is a true self-professed GEEK! *big smile*. He develops math software for a company here in Waterloo and is all about puzzles and general geekdom sooooooooooo I just had to create a little something for him!
Perhaps his geekdom is rubbing off on me but .... when I look at a rubics cube I think of math and geeks like him. My first thought -- doing something along the lines of "the Six sides of Sheldon" and adhering 6 fun little images of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory to each side of the cube -- BUT I opted to showcase 6 famous dead math dudes -- all Kevin's heroes in one way or another! And this is what I came up with: Einstein, Babbage, Cauchy, Pascal, Newton, & Turing
Kevin loved it.... I might even let him take it to the geek farm (aka work) to show it off. In case you were wondering -- that number 26 you see... that is "God's Number" for the Rubics Cube. Apparently, you can perfectly solve a Rubics Cube in 26 moves - or so says some big computer. Sheldon would be so proud!! :)
