April 7 - Knot Theory... NOT

I regularly listen to CNET's Buzz Out Loud. Last week, someone emailed in about headphone cords mysteriously entangling themselves. A couple of episodes later, someone else emailed about a pair of physicists winning an Ig Nobel Peace Prize by proving that heaps of string or hair will inevitably tangle. I subsequently looked up knot theory and found it strangely fascinating.

So that's the uber-geeky setup for this appropriately silly photo of the day.


  1. I never would've thought a mess of cables could be so eye-catching. Great work!

  2. This one didn't quite pan out as eye-popping as I envisioned, but I'm glad someone likes it =)
