Now that we've had some distance from the horrors...I used to wonder how we came up with the heart symbol. You know, like this. [He holds up both hands, thumbs and forefingers pressed together to form a <3 shape.] Doesn't look remotely like a real heart, so it had to come from somewhere.

It started with a fig or ivy leaf - if you squint, you can see it here-- [he holds up a book, and on one page, a fig leaf; he flips forward a few pages, and shows an ivy leaf] See? People were using these in art, as early as...I think the third millennium B.C.E., and by the middle ages, people had turned a leaf into a symbol of romantic, courtly love.

[He shrugs, then reaches forward - not to the device, but to his computer. He fiddles for a moment, then pulls the communicator down so that it gets a view of his computer screen.]



This is a cardioid. Actually, you could call it a lot of things, but it boils down to math being romantic. Happy Valentine's Day, I guess, a little late.

[And a couple hours later, he will add with none of the earlier levity,] David's disappeared. I assume his friends already realized. I'm sorry I didn't say something sooner.

[Private to Regina]

So...Can we just forget that whole thing happened?

[Private to Cissie]

Two years ago today. [Why yes, he's being vague to catch your attention.]

I always thought it came from a baboon's backside, because they look like hearts, and they're bright red to attract a mate.
batmanschmatman: (lol that's cute.)

Only you would find math romantic.
flashy_magic: (Smiling)

[personal profile] flashy_magic 2012-02-23 03:34 am (UTC)(link)
It would explain a lot.
batmanschmatman: (Woah wait you're giving it to me?)

[personal profile] batmanschmatman 2012-02-23 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
You wouldn't!
flashy_magic: (Smiling)

[personal profile] flashy_magic 2012-02-23 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
Yep.
batmanschmatman: (O RLY.)

But who's going to make an embarrassing speech at the rehearsal dinner now? I've been working on mine for years!
batmanschmatman: (Hair ruffle you can't resist Tim. c:)

[personal profile] batmanschmatman 2012-02-23 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
It's a surprise.
fuglyslut: (so you agree)

Forget what? That that freak Arthas made us break up?
batmanschmatman: (Mischief managed.)

[personal profile] batmanschmatman 2012-02-23 03:44 am (UTC)(link)
What? You are literally the worst brother ever.
batmanschmatman: (Should I be concerned?)

[personal profile] batmanschmatman 2012-02-23 03:46 am (UTC)(link)
I take it back?
batmanschmatman: (Prying.)

[personal profile] batmanschmatman 2012-02-23 03:50 am (UTC)(link)
Neither am I, I think your qualifications for "worst brother ever" need a little rethinking.
fuglyslut: (satisfied)

What's wrong with that? You're cute [and rich and a Warden :D], I'm me... [AKA, perfect]
batmanschmatman: (Bitch plz.)

I rank in slightly higher than the two people who tried to kill you? I'm touched.
