Re: The Summation of Birds


Clever. Props for above average math use too. I'm not sure on the x^2 though. I think I would have gone with just x and x -> ∞ under sigma. Maybe I'm being overly critical of a shirt.

Each individual bird can be seen as one, and the square of 1 is 1. Therefore sigma is equal to the sum of squares the artist chose to put. The ^2 is unnecessary, but does not change the meaning.

Nice concept, sloppy execution. The math is rather messy here, it kind of makes sense but not if you really think about it. X has a definite value(crow) and the sum of one crow squared(one crow) is a murder?

Something simpler maybe,

(n>/=3)_SIGMA^n(crow_n)= murder

Wait that's wrong too, it would by something like,

(n=1)_SIGMA^6(crow_n)=murder

Where 6 is any number you like really since any size group is a murder.
