Photo Hunters: Happy



I've had a bad night. Mathematics is soothing. I found this puzzle at Let's Play Math and solved it. It's an easy one and has made me happy. I played with my demo of iWork '08 to make this slide. There is no save function on my demo, so I used Grab to make a screen shot of my work. Then I had to use iPhoto to crop it. Click on the jpeg and it will open in a new window, large enough for you to read it.

Happy Hunting. Hope you are all doing well.

  1. This might be the most unusual take on Happy I've seen so far! I've never thought of Math as soothing! lol I wish you lived next door - my daugher is starting Algebra this year in our homeschool.
    Have a Happy weekend!

  2. I was just going to say the same thing as Amy in NY. I think this will win the unusual prize for this week in Photo Hunt.

  5. Ouch! Just looking at it makes my head hurt.

    Now that I'm retired, I'm HAPPY that I don't have to deal with math much any more. I don't even do the checkbook. Karen takes care of that.

    However, it math puzzles make you happy, it's a nice and different take on the theme.

  9. What an interesting take on the theme! But I get it. Everytime I finish a puzzle or crosswords, I feel happy. :) Happy Weekend!

  10. Math makes you happy? Really? Really, really?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Wow, I haven't even looked at an equation in over 10 years!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Trust a math teacher to find such puzzles soothing. I agree with Mike & ECL above. And I have a bigger headache because, I know you're not going to believe this, I just came back from peeking in at a math quiz in my daughter's school. It had 6 teams from different schools all fighting it out to give answers to complicated (to me) math puzzles in under two minutes - with the solutions worked out in a piece of paper. No guess work accepted.
    Try this on for size: What are the prime factors of 9991 (clue there are only 2) & how do you arrive at the answer. I had no idea but the kids finished in under 45 seconds and got a bonus for being under one minute. Wow. Thank God I'm in medicine.

    And before I forget, Great idea for the theme meeyauw :)

  13. Very unusual take! oops, some others have said that too :)
    I am happy you shared that link to play with math, I might try it myself!
    Happy weekend!

  14. This certainly is different.

  15. solving a math problem does make me happy.... that was after hours of migraine and brain tortures...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yikes -- have never thought of maths as soothing! But, hey, different strokes for different folks and all that! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well, what can I say...... it's not so much that I hate Maths - rather, Maths seems to hate me (you see, Maths and I would NEVER be happy together!!). But the first thought that came into my mind when I saw your pic was: HAPPY SMILEY! And it actually made me smile LOL! So I guess, it qualifies for HAPPY.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Very cool! Sorry to hear you had a bad night. Logic or mathematics puzzles can definitely be soothing if you have an aptitude for that sort of thing! My mom says it can be very satisfying to solve a difficult mathematical puzzle or equation.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Now that's is a great take on this week's theme. Maths was never my forte.. I still have nightmares about calculus! Have a great weekend

    ReplyDelete
  20. Maths was my favourite subject in school. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. your entry is different from all i've seen

    great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have to say that Maths never made me happy, but it's an interesting take on the theme!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Right. OK. Well, it takes all sorts :) While I enjoy statistics and problem solving, I can't say I would be likely to do puzzles like that to make myself happy.

    Definitely first prize for originality!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hmmm...solving mathematical questions and puzzles indeed do make me happy too. Nice and unusual shot for the theme. Happy weekend! http://crizlai.blogspot.com/2007/08/photo-hunters-happy.html

  25. Math as soothing? Everyone has a different take on happy :) I'm terrible at math. You are my hero :) Great take on the them!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I wish Math could make me happy! But then again I haven't tried! ;-)
    Very cool and unique take on the theme!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. glad to b back here. i love the sunflowers, climbing a tree and fire post, but the other recent posts are a little beyond me :)

    have a great week ahead :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's a very original take on the theme. I like it. Goes to show what would frustrate one person (me) makes someone else happy (you). Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  29. *blink* Math makes you happy?

    You're my hero.

    Can you share your secret with my boys? lol

    ReplyDelete
  30. why is this a happy photo again? i like math but it never really made me happy! but if math makes you happy, then i am happy for you!

    ReplyDelete
  31. That was really unique, great idea for the theme!

    ReplyDelete
  32. wow, that is a great way to get happy. It probably wouldn't work for me at all but I understand the joy of solving puzzles and the happiness it brings.

    ReplyDelete
  33. thanks for visiting mine.

    wow! Math makes you happy? That's new.. =)

    ReplyDelete
  34. My Dad would have so loved you! He too found math to be very relaxing, as does my sister now, so I do understand .. :) Happy solving!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Very original! I will offer this up as proof that God made us all individuals. That wouldn't make me happy at all! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sorry you had a bad night. I'm having a lot of those, lately.

    Don't think I'd choose maths puzzles to soothe me, though. They'd drive me nuts!

    Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I could think of many other things,but hey if it work for you then i am happy

    ReplyDelete
  38. I suppose we all find happiness in different ways! =) Personally, I love algebra and geometry, but my daughter (the subject of my happy, btw) would consider this a nightmare! Thanks for making this week's theme interesting! Blessings!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Good take - some people do crosswords...

    ReplyDelete
  40. You and my dad both. (He was a math teacher until he turned computer teacher. :)) I won't even try to understand it--just kudos to you for enjoying it. Though I must say I do love classical music--especially Mendelson. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Math makes me happy too, there are rules and they always apply.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I hope one day I'll find it soothing as well.
    Great take!

    Thanks for checking mine this week!

    ReplyDelete
  43. We are glad math makes you HAPPY, cause it only caused our Mom to be sad! Wonderful take on the theme! Have a nice week!
    Your FL furiends,

    ReplyDelete
  44. Have you ever played Blokus? My husband bought it for his intermediate math teachers a few years back and then one for us too. We love it and so do the kids.

    Nice happy thoughts to you.

    ReplyDelete
  45. This would NOT make me happy!! I have never liked Math!! Never!! I must have some part of my brain that shuts down when it comes to numbers!! smile!! I am so happy for you though. I loved this word today!! HAPPY!!

  46. interesting photo! thanks for stopping by!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Amy said it all...math makes me a wreck!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Okaaaay...it's not something that would make me happy...more likely drive me crazy...lol.

    Still, I'm glad it did the trick for you.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hmm, I can't say that doing math puzzles soothes me, but I know others like you, just not sure where y'all come from. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  50. This is great! Math used to make me happy too, but I haven't thought "math" in so long that it is now becoming foreign. I always liked how tidy, and orderly, and organized it seemed. I wish life were a bit more like that. Enjoy your weekend!

    PS. Sorry the swimming there was not good this year.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Math and I aren't best buddy. I did basic algebra or now I think they call here Pre algebra and I got a D in it and it was a struggle for me.
    Letters and numbers don't go to gather.
    I'll copy off the math problem and see if one of my boys can figure it out.

    I didn't do photo hunt this time around. I just complain about a job application I fill out.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wow, you are totally my hero. You see Math and I...well, I'm just not good at it. In my mind, it's this snarling, vicious beast and you tamed it. Happy day, indeed.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Very very interesting.
    I am going to look into all the programs you used.
    Thanks for visiting me.

  54. I hope things are going better for you. As for math being "soothing," I have a math phobia - it's always been my worst subject. Very interesting take on this weeks theme!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thanks for stopping by.

    Interesting approach.
    I like to do logic puzzles for fun sometimes, so I can completely relate!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I admire people who are good in math. i am so poor. if i look at it, perhaps i will fall asleep.:)

    great take on theme! happy sunday!

    ReplyDelete
  57. The solving part would make me happy. The doing the solving...not so much! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  58. now that's definitely one of a kind. a really unique take on this week's theme :D

    ReplyDelete
  59. I like your unique interpretation for Happy. Personally, I'm not too fond of math and I admire people who do.

    Thanks for the visit.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Pi! That reminds me, I registered 314159.info years ago but have never used it. The domain that is, I use Pi all the time.

  62. I think you are the first person I know that is happy solving math-puzzles :) - Too cute. No, I take that back, our son is a 'walking' calculator.

    Thank you for sharing this week and thank you so much for stopping by yesterday.

    ReplyDelete
  63. That's definitely the most unusual 'happy' I've seen!

    Great interpretation.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Wow! How neat is that?! I'm no math wiz though! Writing is more up my alley to feeling happy! Thanks for stopping by!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I reckon challenging things can make a person happy -- different strokes for different folks. I like math but am not good with high level math anymore. . . My happiness comes from walking, like when I completed the Portland marathon.

    Come and see mine.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh my, I used to be a math whiz and even got a math award in high school, but this one looks like I may pull a brain muscle! Glad it made you happy though! Thanks for visiting.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I've never heard of anyone thinking of math as soothing!

    Thanks for stopping by. :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I wouldn't come close to finding math as soothing, but if it works, that is fantastic. We only had simple math in school, the Algebra came the year I graduated. Today I find many of the younger folks that can't even count out change right. Great take on the theme, and if it makes you happy, then happy it is!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Now that's definitely one happy moment that not many people enjoy including myself but as long as it brings you joy that's what matters :) Here's mine
