LOL you can participate you know, just do a google search for little known facts or tell us something you found interesting. We all need to contribute to the world knowledge (whoa getting kinda deep there :P!!)

Fact: The Mona Lisa has no eyebrows. It was the fashion in Renaissance Florence to shave them off :shock:

I received this e-mail and found it fascinating:

Quote:
Did You Know?

In George Washington's days, there were no cameras. One's image was either sculpted or painted. Some paintings of George Washington showed him standing behind a desk with one arm behind his back while others showed both legs and both arms. Prices charged by painters were not based on how many people were to be painted, but by how many limbs were to be painted. Arms and legs are "limbs," therefore painting them would cost the buyer more. Hence the expression, "Okay, but it'll cost you an arm and a leg."

As incredible as it sounds, men and women took baths only twice a year!
(May and October) Women kept their hair covered, while men shaved their heads (because of lice and bugs) and wore wigs. Wealthy men could afford good wigs made from wool. The wigs couldn't be washed, so to clean them they could carve out a loaf of bread, put the wig in the shell, and bake it for 30 minutes. The heat would make the wig big and fluffy, hence the term "big wig." Today we often use the term "here comes the Big Wig" because someone appears to be or is powerful and wealthy.

In the late 1700s, many houses consisted of a large room with only one
chair. Commonly, a long wide board was folded down from the wall and
used or dining. The "head of the household" always sat in the chair while everyone else ate sitting on the floor. Once in a while, a guest (who was almost always a man) would be invited to sit in this chair
during a meal. To sit in the chair meant you were important and in charge. Sitting in the chair, one was called the "chair man." Today in business we use the expression or title "Chairman" or "Chairman of the Board"

Needless to say, personal hygiene left much room for improvement. As a
result, many women and men had developed acne scars by adulthood. The women would spread bee's wax over their facial skin to smooth out
their complexions. When they were speaking to each other, if a woman began to stare at another woman's face she was told "mind your own bee's wax."
Should the woman smile, the wax would crack, hence the term "crack a
smile." Also, when they sat to close to the fire, the wax would melt and therefore the expression "losing face."

Ladies wore corsets which would lace up in the front. A tightly tied lace was worn by a proper and dignified lady as in "straight laced."

Common entertainment included playing cards. However, there was a tax
levied when purchasing playing cards but only applicable to the "Ace of
Spades." To avoid paying the tax, people would purchase 51 cards instead. Yet, since most games require 52 cards, these people were
thought to be stupid or dumb because they weren't "playing with a full
deck."

Early politicians required feedback from the public to determine what was considered important to the people. Since there were no telephones, TV's or radios, the politicians sent their assistants to local
taverns, pubs, and bars who were told to "go sip some ale" and listen to
people's conversations and political concerns. Many assistants were dispatched at different times. "You go sip here" and "You go sip there." The two words "go sip" were eventually combined when referring to the local opinion and, thus we have the term "gossip."

At local taverns, pubs, and bars, people drank from pint and quart-sized
containers. A bar maid's job was to keep an eye on the customers and
keep the drinks coming. She had to pay close attention and remember
who was drinking in "pints" and who was drinking in "quarts," hence the
term "minding your "P's and Q's."

One more: bet you didn't know this!

In the heyday of sailing ships, all war ships and many freighters carried iron cannons. Those cannons fired round iron cannon balls. It was necessary to keep a good supply near the cannon, but how to prevent
them from rolling about the deck? The best storage method devised was
a square based pyramid with one ball on top, resting on four resting on
nine, which rested on sixteen. Thus, a supply of 30 cannon balls could
be stacked in a small area right next to the cannon. There was only one
problem...how to prevent the bottom layer from sliding or rolling from under the others. The solution was a metal plate called a "Monkey" with
16 round indentations. But, if this plate were made of iron, the ironballs would quickly rust to it. The solution to the rusting problem was to make "Brass Monkeys." Few landlubbers realize that brass contracts much more and much faster than iron when chilled. Consequently, when the temperature dropped too far, the brass indentations would shrink so much that the iron cannonballs would come right off the monkey. Thus, it was quite literally, "Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey." (And all this time, you thought that was an improper expression, didn't you?)

Strangly I always view those "origins of words" things with a certain amount of scepticism, but nice post grinch.


The phrase "fed up" comes from falconry. You convince a falcon to do tricks by feeding it treats, once it's had enough it becomes "fed up" with the performance and refuses to co-operate.

Since were on the topic of sharing knowledge, can any of you math gurus tell me how to find the degrees of rotation for object C from X,Y cordanates so to make a point at the outer edge of object C line up with both the x,y cordanates and the center of object C ?
Code: [ Select ]
  Y
  |
  |     . <---------- X=300, Y= -150
  | 
(C)---------X
  1.   Y
  2.   |
  3.   |     . <---------- X=300, Y= -150
  4.   | 
  5. (C)---------X

The center of object C is X=0, Y=0, object C has a diameter of 200.
Here's the fun part, X & Y will always be the X & Y positon of a mouse on the screen.

I think i'm trying to do the exact oppisite of this,
http://www.actionscripts.org/tutorials/ ... dex3.shtml

just don't know what to look for :?

So the center of object c is at coordinates (0,0) and I am assuming it is a 200 pixcel long arrow/pointery thing for lack of a better description.

So, mouse pinter is at points x and y:


Code: [ Select ]
    (x,y)
   /
|  /
|  /
| /
| /
|a_____
  1.     (x,y)
  2.    /
  3. |  /
  4. |  /
  5. | /
  6. | /
  7. |a_____


angle a, from the horizontal can be found with the inverse tan function

tan = opposite/adjacent

where opposite = y and adjacent=x

.'. angle a = tan-1 (y/x)

then, if the point we are looking for is (Cx, Cy), we get:

Cx= 200 cos(angle a)
Cy= 200 sin(angle a)


I'm pretty sure thats right. There's also a very silly and difficult way using vectors and stuff that I have forgotten

sorry, that tan-1 would be:

alternatively, you could do:

h^2=(x^2) + (y^2)     (pythagorean theorum)


Ch/h = Cx/x = Cy/y     (the triangles are relative)

so:

Cx = x * (Ch)/(sqrt((x^2)+(y^2)))
Cy = y * (Ch)/(sqrt((x^2)+(y^2)))


//this method would be better coded in stages:

h=sqrt((x^2)+(y^2))

Multiplier = Ch/h     where ch=200;

Cx= x * Multiplier
Cx= y * Multiplier

:lol: I was way off, I just started trying things and came up with this so far, (strangely it works as long as the mouse is exactly 500 pixels away from center of orb :scratchhead: )
Code: [ Select ]
movieWidth = 600;
movieHeight = 550;
pizza = Math.sqrt((orb._width*Math.PI)/4);
trueX_ = movieWidth - orb._x;
trueY_ = movieHeight = orb._y;
trueXY = (trueX_ + trueY_);
_root.onMouseMove = function(){
    trueXMouse = _xmouse - orb._x;
    trueYMouse = _ymouse - orb._y;
    XplusYMouse = trueXMouse + trueYMouse;
    temp1 = trueXMouse/pizza;
    temp2 = trueYMouse/pizza;
    temp = (temp1+temp2)+45;
    orbRotation = temp;
    orb._rotation = orbRotation;
}
  1. movieWidth = 600;
  2. movieHeight = 550;
  3. pizza = Math.sqrt((orb._width*Math.PI)/4);
  4. trueX_ = movieWidth - orb._x;
  5. trueY_ = movieHeight = orb._y;
  6. trueXY = (trueX_ + trueY_);
  7. _root.onMouseMove = function(){
  8.     trueXMouse = _xmouse - orb._x;
  9.     trueYMouse = _ymouse - orb._y;
  10.     XplusYMouse = trueXMouse + trueYMouse;
  11.     temp1 = trueXMouse/pizza;
  12.     temp2 = trueYMouse/pizza;
  13.     temp = (temp1+temp2)+45;
  14.     orbRotation = temp;
  15.     orb._rotation = orbRotation;
  16. }


Note some of the vars are textboxes :wink:

if all you need are the degrees of rotation then all you need is:

Code: [ Select ]
AngFromHorizontal = Math.Atan (TrueYMouse/TrueYMouse)


although I have no idea what pizza means though lol. That will give dgrees of rotation, from horizontal, going anticlockwise (counterclockwise), so you may have to adjust to give rotation in the right direction or from the correct position.

it may very well be in radians (most languages use rads) but I know nothing of actionscript.....

Not sure if the following are 100% true:
-Earth weights 6.588.000.000.000.000.000.000.000 tons
-111.111.111 x 111.111.111 = 12.345.678.987.654.321 [that's true :P]
-Americans eat 72.000m² pizza every day
-If a nuclear explosion happened on earth only cockroaches would survive
-It's impossible to sneeze with eyes opened

Here's a grizzly fact: (I can hear your groans...)

An adult grizzly bear can decapitate a moose with one swipe of its paw. When it charges it can cover 100 yards in six seconds - faster than a racehorse.

A cockroach can survive for only one week with its head cut off, simply because it starves to death.
