    I think I just learned math by accident.

    This is unbelievably awesome.

    @Zapski: HER! Her awesomeness abounds. I have no idea how that became “hew.”

    So going on her usage of “puppy sized elephant” I am going to guess that she is a nerdfighter and follows the vlog brothers.

    Woah. I love this! I know what I’m going to be doodling in my art journal today! 😀

    She’s got a bunch of vids, they’re all excellent (well, going by my sample of three >_>)

    Her name is Vi Hart. She has a blog and a Facebook page of awesomeness as well. And she looks like a baby Anne Hathaway. http://vihart.com/

    Love, love, love! Learning by accident (thanks, Brian G!) is the bestest!

    Math, infinity, and an acute sense of geekery – maximum awesomeness.

    Damn straight corners need circles! I now have infinitely unrequited brain love.

    So to speak. Er, draw 😀

    Every spare surface today got covered in apollonian gaskets!

    From her bio on her site:

    “I think the human brain is incredible and strange, so I have developed a great interest in dreaming and consciousness. As a result, I am a trained hypnotist and a lucid dreamer.”

    Uh oh.

    What’s wrong about that? Lucid dreaming is seriously studied by a lot of scientists. It’s real. As is hypnosis.

    Vi Hart is great. My favorite video of hers is the mobius strip one.

    Lucid dreaming is awesome. However, I’ve never heard of anyone being “trained” as a hypnotist in any sort of scientific way.

    But then she is just a very creative person. She might take any woo aspects of that stuff with a grain of salt.

    Holy, holy crap!! This is just wonderful! Whole new inspiration for my art journal! And maths by stealth! Does the awesome never end!
