Mathematical Fun Fact: 10-183,000
The value of this infinitesimally small number can be appreciated by this: The number is a rough estimate of the probability that a monkey, placed in front of a typewriter and provided with adequate food, breaks, and sleep throughout the process, will fully and accurately type the entire script of Hamlet on the first try. However, this is just considering the letters on their own. If you’d like to be more technical; taking punctuation, capitalization, and spacing into account, the actual probability of the monkey typing Hamlet is less: around 10−360,783.
For my more mathematically read followers, this may strike you as the Infinite Monkey Theorem.
Your plan has now been foiled. MWAHAHA
MATH HUMOR IS THE BEST.

Strange Attractors by Chaotic Atmospheres
The darkest art known as Chaos Theory is perfectly embodied in the form of its strange attractors: vast looping trajectories of variables that, when plotted, conjure gorgeous yet insidiously disruptive patterns. Chaotic Atmosphere’s Math: Rules series pays tribute to the beautiful form of chaos and its inevitable collapse of all our efforts to predict it.
A brilliant series of minimalist typographic tributes to scientists and their discoveries. I especially like the Copernicus one :)

oh god a math joke I actually got
Our Holy Lady of Fractals and Spirographs
I finished it!! Second attempt, after the first glitched the (finished!!! >:/) file past the point of all return, with a more comprehensive approach to the color scheme, designs, and clothing. She’s a goddess in that thing I’ve been working on; the first goddess, but not the only one. Her domain is not life so much as it is the way life properly plays out—she is the wheel of time and of fate, the journey from birth to death, order in all forms possible. Light, enlightenment. Basically, pure badass.
Might tweak a few more things later, but classes start again tomorrow morning so I’m outtie.
Mr/Mrs. Test Designer, you monster…
