MEMO #584

Spiders are never a valid reason to discharge firearms on base, nor are they justification for calling an airstrike in on your position.

The obvious exception for our Australian base is of course, always made in this case.

To be fair, the really big ones are usually harmless. It’s the little ones you have to watch out for. Hiding in your boots. Chilling in your gloves. Lurking under the toilet seat.

There was a redback on the toilet seat when I was there last night…

This legitimately upsets me.

… Y’see, now, y’see, I’m looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.
So you might end up with more donuts.
But then I also think… Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?
Hrm.
HRM.

A round donut with radius R1 occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R1. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R2 and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R2, then the area of a round donut is πR12 - πr22. The area of a square donut would be then 4R12 - 4R22. This doesn’t say much, but in general and  throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R2 = R1/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15πR12/16 ≃ 2,94R12, square: 15R12/4 = 3,75R12). Now, assuming a large center hole (R2 = 3R1/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7πR12/16 ≃ 1,37R12, square: 7R12/4 = 1,75R12). This tells us that, approximately, we’ll have a 27% bigger donut if it’s square than if it’s round.
tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.

god i love this site

can’t argue with science. Heretofore, I want my donuts square.

MEMO #586

A reminder to all employees that it is seldom appropriate or advisable to wear anything other than combat boots or other approved foot-gear on duty.

At no time, for non-undercover employees, is it appropriate to wear flip-flops or go barefoot. If anyone questions why, please watch Die Hard and take note of the condition of Mr. McClane’s feet by the end of the movie, then multiply that damage and pain levels times about three to weight for reality.

that sobering moment in which you realize you are not going to send that meme to that muse because the possibilities literally fucking terrify you.

All employees are reminded to have these filled out and on for each relationship. The reasons are outlined in you handbooks, though the short answer would be “security concerns”
