LARRY CalSci has long proved that the slide rule is mightier than the sword. (re: model) I believe Friday night's prank will be our finest hour.

A slide rule adds the logarithms of two numbers to multiply them. Slide the C scale so that the 1 or 10 is over *x* on the D scale. Find *y* on the C scale; *x* × *y* will be underneath *y* on the D scale. You have to figure out the decimals yourself.

CHARLIE You should let me be the judge of that -- (beat) No more secrets, okay? (then) I'm late for my random matrix theory lecture...

The top left plot represents a random permutation of grays. The top right plot colors the pixels according to the memberships of sampled numbers in the cycles of this sampled permutation. Members of the largest cycle are marked black. The lower plot sorts the pixels according to cycle membership. The red numbers in the grid count the elements in the cycles; the black numbers give these cycles or the first few members of longer cycles.
