Christmas for my geeky friends

Repeat from last year. Don't say that I didn't warn you.

This, I loved:


Translation to follow upon request.

BTW, here is the Taylor series expansion for the natural log Euler's constant. Behold:

taylor series expansion for natural log.png

Substitute "1" for x and there you have it.

Update: As someone else noticed, the series expansion is for the root used in the natural log: e, also know as Euler's number, Euler's constant(not the Euler-Mascheroni constant), or Napier's constant. Sorry for any confusion.

Dammit, you're forcing me to try to remember classes I took in college... that I hated.

screw you and your god awful math.....

but that reminds me. post upcoming..... check your TBs

God awful math?

Your mouth is moving and sounds are coming out, but I can't understand a word that you're saying.

Erm, that's a Taylor series expansion for something, but not a natural log.

Yeah, I'm a little lost on the expansion, too. Got the Christmas wishes, but still struggling with the summation.

Feller, its a Taylor expansion for e and that's all.

My math is fine, I simply misspoke. It is supposed to be the series for e.
