I guess drinking affects us all… differently?
Next episode: Monday, Oct. 17th – be here!
Hee-hee! Ol’ Kohr doesn’t know what to make of this new development!
And quite frankly, neither do I… :/
“Nesxt” episode? Is that something regular, guys, or a typo…?
My guess would be that it’s a typo. I’m amazed at how spoiled you can get by using the autocorrect features while typing on a phone, and then be so disappointed when using a real keyboard.
So, do any you fellow BillBarians know what Bill is talking about?
I’ll give 1000 bonus points* to the first person that provides the correct answer.
* – Bonus points are not redeemable for cash, and have no value whatsoever.
The pythagoreon theorem I think
it’s been a while since my high school algebra class
Ding! Ding! Ding!
We have a winner!! Here’s your 1000 bonus points, don’t spend them all in one place.
For those of you who are geometrically inclined, the Pythagorean Theorem (created by the ol’ Greek, Pythagoras) states that the squared length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the squared lengths of the other two sides.
C2 = A2 + B2
That should then conlude today’s math lesson. Sorry for those of you who I told there wouldn’t be any math.
Shoot, I was going to guess “The Nymerian Rule of 3 sided polygons”.
I was actually going to guess that he was referencing the Wizard of Oz, but getting the answer RIGHT instead of wrong. (The scarecrow named the triangle isoceles, which is wrong.)
But yes, the pythagorean theorem definitely.
The HTML encoding on the board doesn’t seem to allow for the superscript tag, so you’ll need to pretend that “C2″ above reads as C squared, etc.
What about Unicode, or copy+paste from a character map? Let’s see if it likes this… a² + b² = c²
Well done!! 100 bonus to you for getting the superscripts to display.
bill is using another one of bob hopes gag lines.
This reminds me the story of Hippasus
‘Kay — so, since Im’a day late for the geometry test, I’ll lay a mathematics mnemonic study guide on y’all:
Smiles Of Happiness (S = O / H)
Come After Having (C = A / H)
Tankards Of Ale (T = O / A)
That’s a very interesting way to remember SOHCAHTOA, but don’t forget to Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally!
Oh wow … memories! used to sing “♫♪ Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally ♪♫ doo dah, doo dah ♪♫ Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally all the doo dah day! ♫♪”
However, she becomes a bit confused with higher math, such as when you get into logs and factorials.
This is kinda’ fun, though. We spend a lot of time bashing on Bill’s intellect but, to be an accountant, you have to handle some fairly complex math. While there have been a couple of accounting jokes in the course of our story, nobody ever said Bill was an incompetent accountant. He just wanted to do something else. Just because he’s a bit dim doesn’t mean he’s stupid.
If this keeps up, I’m going to start respecting him …
Oops. That was a typo. lol. Thanks for the catch, SAGG. And Don – I easgerly await someone’s response to your question… heeheehee…
Guess this will looks right c²=a²+b²
BTW, alcohol affects us all differently ’cause it damages different cells in the brain.
Oh Bill… you continue to amaze us… XD
I wish drinking had that effect on the frat-house boys living in the house next door…
frank says ow. come on frank. do some barbarian like sweating so kohr thinks bill is swearing.
Wasn’t that what the Scarecrow said in “The Wizard of Oz” movie after the wizard gave him whatever it was he gave him?
I looked the scene up on YouTube. The Scarecrow DID quote the Pythagorean Theorem, but he got it wrong. Bill is smarter on barbarian brew than the Scarecrow was!
could this be a clue to what bill has === and speaking of clues, what is going on with the person in vanilla colored cloak
enquiring minds want to know
It’s SingleStein the Barbarian. He quotes the arcane incantation “Mass in kilograms multiplied by the speed of light in meters per second squared yields joules” on a hot Spring day when the air is scented with Siskiyou wallflowers and the madrones are already peeling. The California Pink Firs* catch fire and burn as a small portion of the reaction mass is converted directly to energy…
*a localism for a common hybrid between abies concolor and abies magnifica found on the Happy Camp Ranger District.
wish i could stand up straight with a POP! noise, id totaly abuse that
Methinks I doth perceive a hint of fear in Kohr’s good eye. But it’s okay! Bill scares me alllll the time…..He’s like a demented swiss army knife. Every time I think I’ve seen the strangest thing he could do? A new weird thing pops out! It’s wild.

It may just be uncertainty.
Me thinks Bill’s brain is not wired quite right.
wel i kind of hope bill doesnt start drinking… his braincells have it hard enough as it is!
This is AWESOME! Awww Bendito Frank.
more beer on table 17, pixie
I like Kohr(ps) comment about a “simple stout ale.” A “simple stout ale” in the Bilbaria Universe? It’s just as likely to be distilled cotton socks with fenugreek flavoring as malt. Or fermented beans, flavored with bacon and boneset. Or fermented chocolate beans mixed with linseed oil with poison oak or skunkbush for body…
How about a mix of digitalis, datura, cicuta, conium, ricinus and a touch of ground up cherry pits, all fermented together with honey and cream?
Or the equally disgusting Scot drink (in one of my mom”s cookbooks from about 1900) for “sparkling whey” that is whey in a waterskin left out to rot until it’s “bubbly.”
Frank(ly) my beer, I don’t give a square..
So him drunk is like a Discworld troll in a freezer? Interesting.
