Primed Slot

I like math. Not great with it. But, I enjoy reading things like Flatland and find the application of second derivative and the resulting slope shapes scintillating.

Hence, it should not come as a surprise that when I had to pick a slot recently at PARC, I specifically requested a prime number. 19, in case you are wondering.

Cartesian Padlock

On the other hand, I am just a white belt at PARC.

In a recent conversation, I asked for the combination of a padlock. It starts with "-2". Negative two?! Took me a split second to realize that the combination was expressed in an one dimensional Cartesian number line.
