### the sad tale of my not posting equations for months

First, let us happily acknowledge that others now are using their minds for this activity. We (that’s the royal we, of course) hope they enjoy themselves.

Second, to return to the title: Yes, I haven’t posted for months, and now it has been pointed out. Actually, it’s not a sad tale, though some might find it lame. Here’s a fresh start, in honor of tomorrow’s palindromic date:

3 + 1 = 1 + 3

And here’s one with some fancier stuff than usual:

3! = 3 * (1+1)

And, since it’s still 2/28/13, we have the pleasure of:

2 + 2 = 8 – 1 – 3

which is in order, and makes me realize that the factorial equation above should have been

3! = (1 + 1) * 3

to get those “leaving the numbers in the order in which they were already” bonus points.*
