Like Thaard's crew, I'm in a geeky band - we have a curator of musical instruments, a conservator of museum collections, a magazine editor, a graphic/web designer and an HR metrics consultant (formerly design and database admin).

When I was eleven I recorded the maximum temprature of every day of the year, each entry colour-coded according to decile (we had Fahrenheit back then), then I averaged out the temps by month. No idea why. Just mad, I guess.

This band is a veritable excitement machine! Man, the punters are gunna be jumpin' once we hit the retirement village circuit!

However, not even we would perform a song about maths :)

Yes, you're right. You clearly picked up my artful use of flattened notes in variance from the expected melody ...

Equations and Theories ... sure to be a hit at the Norwegian MENSA Annual Conference :)
