"Earlier in the show we met Randall. Munroe he's a physics expecting but he now. Mainly writes illustrates a really popular web comic. It's called what yes and the way it works every week. People write in questions for Randall Randall. To answer in the form of a comic so for example. What if you were playing baseball right and you were the better? What would happen? If the pitcher through the baseball impossibly fast like ninety percent the speed of light. Here's Randall's answer. So I did some calculations on the Ted Stage which normally when an object flies through the air the air will flow around the object but in this case the ball going so fast that the air molecules wouldn't have time to move out of the way the ball would smash into and through them and the collisions with these air molecules would knock away the nitrogen carbon and hydrogen from the ball fragmenting it off into tiny particles goals triggering waves of thermonuclear fusion in the air around it this would result in a flood of x rays that would spread out in a bubble along with exotic particles Senate on the pitcher's mound now at this point about thirty nanoseconds in the home plate is far enough away that late has the time to reach it which means the batter still sees the pitcher about to throw and has no idea that anything is wrong now now after seventy seconds the ball reach home plate or at least the cloud of expanding plasma that used to be the ball and it will engulfed the bad and the batter and the plate and the catcher and the empire and start disintegrating them all followed by a blast wave spreading out shredding trees and houses as it moves away from the stadium and then eventually actually a mushroom cloud rising over the ruined city so the major league baseball rules are a little bit hazy but under under rule six point zero two and five point Oh nine I think that in this situation the better would be considered hit by pitch and it would be eligible to take first base if it still existed. This is the kind of question Randall answers every week peak in his web comic. What if questions like? How fast could you visit all fifty states? or how long would a staircase to space take to climb or what would happen if all the rain and a thunderstorm dropped at once in the form of a single raindrop short answer there. Nothing good in the case of the raindrop. That's this big and falling this fast when the bottom hits there's so much more water coming and it's coming so quickly that there isn't enough time for the first part of the splash to get out of the way before the next part of the raindrop already there and this this causes a thin jet to shoot outward along the ground away from the point of contact and In sort of in all directions you'll get these jets that's of water moving at you know Much higher than the speed of sound. Yeah you would wanNA watch this from a from a safe distance away like from Yeah make sure to have a mountaintop and even if you've got a mountain between you and the raindrop you WanNa make sure you are not downstream of that raindrop How do you think how do you think you approach something unknown differently than other people do well I? I have always had a little bit of trouble. Managing my Time and just clicking random wikipedia links or reading random papers and then before I know it I spent like three hours trying to solve a question that I'm not even GonNa read an article about and I I once drew a comic about how you could use this maliciously this tendency. Science people have where I had a comic about someone who sat outside an engineering in building by the side of the road and when the physics professor was halfway across the road they would hold up a sign with an interesting problem on it and this would stop immediately to like start thinking about. Okay how do I saw this. Take the square root of and then when they buy a car and and so they invented this sport That I called nerd sniping but part of what I did with deal with what is that. I'm I'm nerd sniping myself. I'm getting all these questions sent to me. Then I will have no choice but to try to answer a a couple of years ago when he got the following question. Say All the world's known data were stored on punched cards. You know those paper cards with holes that used to be fed into computers are card punch translates words and numbers into the same information in the form of holes in cards a typist with very little extra training. Operate the Card Punch anyway. The question was if we still store data that way. How much physical space would google Google need to store? All the data that Google has Google of course wasn't gonNA tell Randall. How much data they do have so randall came up with an answer? He thought was plausible. I came up with my estimate which I felt pretty good about that was about about ten exa bytes of data across all of Google's operations and and and another maybe five x bites or so of offline storage in tape drives which it turns out. Google is about the world's largest consumer of so I came up with this estimate and this this is a staggering amount of data. It's quite a bit more than any other organization in the world has as far as we know. There's there's a couple of other contenders especially everyone always thinks of the. NSA adding all of this up. I came up with the other thing that we can answer. which is how many punchcards would this take? And and so a punch card can hold about eighty characters and you can fit about two thousand or so cards into a box and you put them and say my Whom region of New England it would cover the entire region up to a depth of a little less than five kilometers which is about three times deeper than the glacier? There is during the last Ice Age about twenty thousand years ago so this is this is impractical. But I didn't expect to get an answer from Google because of course they've been so secretive they didn't answer any questions and so I just put it up and said well I guess we'll never know but then a little while later I got a message a couple of weeks later from Google saying hey someone here has an envelope for you so I go and get it. Open it up and it's punchcards. Google branded punch cards cards and on these punch cards. They're a bunch of holes. I said thank you thank you okay. So what's on here. So I got some software and star reading it and scan them and it turns out. It's a puzzle. There is a bunch of code and I had friends to help and we cracked the code and inside that is another code and then there's some equations and then we solve those equations and then finally and out pops a message from Google. which is their official answer to my article and it said no comment so and I love calculating these kinds of things and it's not not that I love doing the math? I do a lot of math but I don't really like math for its own sake What I love is the? Let's take some things that you know and just by doing being these moving symbols around on a piece of paper find out something you. You didn't know that it's very surprising. And I have a lot of stupid questions and I love that. Math gives the power to answer them sometimes and sometimes not. This is a question. I got from reader an anonymous reader and the subject trek line just said urgent and this was the entire email if people had wheels and could fly. How would we differentiate them from airplanes? Urgent and I think there are some questions that math just cannot answer. Thank you the Monroe. His talk is Ted Dot Com and its web comic is X. K.. CD DOT com back on the show.

Big Time Jazz drummer popping in and out of the show today to explain the ideas from his Ted talk. About how math and rhythm intersect. Yeah it seems you know from the surface if you said you know math. The music that I'll we'll that wouldn't swing or groove. Yeah math is not groovy your swing a you know when I listened to other musicians sick man. He really sounds good when he does that. And now I can listen to Phil Collins Max Roach. I can listen to Tony Williams. These are all drummers famous. Drummer Elvin Jones All these in each of their styles of playing they're gonNA play different threes threes absolutely You know like the Classic Classic Rock beat Iraq failed to do to ban. So that's a group of three. That Phil wanted people not people through the well Max Roach father of bebop drumming along with another drummer by the name of Kenny Clarke. They introduced syncopation into the music. Like it never had been used before in so max used to do these this thing where he would between his his left hand and his Bass Ace trauma and assemble.

"It's not the words as the sound if I could replace your sound with a computer, would you want your mama, ever, computer as voice? No. So it's like once we took the creativity away from from the sound of drums and made it only be functional for dance beat. Took the dynamism out of about making a be a machine and started looping at the drums. I astronauts, man, you that drum here so much memory and consciousness in richness in dramas was kings. You know, max Roach Elvin Jones, buddy rich are Blakey. This goes on and on of all races drama as a king just the sound on the drums the power of a drum, the balance of drums are drums. That's that's the African retention now. You took that out of the culture. That's worse than that's like being imprisoned. Because now where you had the freedom of drummer in the consciousness of drummer in the power of a drummer majesty of drums now, you have a machine and. To know. So little about music that you don't know that that's a problem is educational crop. That's a problem. And then what about swing? That's another thing that you you you you talk about a lot that the the you're always fighting for swing and swing place in jazz swing mobile environment at the bottom when the bottom stops moving. Like, this is not swing and this is a static bottom. Boom. Boom, boom, boom, boom BB dome. Boom, boom. That base is gonna just do that. You look at his party just this. Now, I don't have to write any more music. Just copies copies copy. He's covered. This whole piece. He's gonna play the same base part over and over again. So now you start to you start to. There's no freedom in the bass and the drums as a machine. Okay. There's your to most is is important in your in your music is in your coach have your most. You're you're your most back background position. Be the freest. You want your background position to have to do all kinda slave work in everybody else's free that constricts everything. So it's swing is a mobile environment on the bottom. The bottom is moving. It allows you to create a steady stream of ideas. Once the bottom becomes static is more difficult to create ideas on the top. And I don't know if I'm expressing clearly enough, but physical law as a fact of nature's just is what it is. Once you once you constrict the thing that is your foundation. You don't you? Don't have the same type of attitude and swing is is when the bottom moves on. Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom boom boom being bone Bieber. Don't being makes you a gives you an environment which encourages you to create new ideas. All the time was the bottom income poem about feels good Bloomberg dean veto on bone. But don't. That I get to babe tune bone that now would you play has got to be bap. You have to play it in that context. Got it. I think actually got it what it is. But you don't want something as a product. You don't need this base. I don't like tight cast somebody man. I don't care. What you did you commit a crime in his movie? This is what we what we gotta blow something up in the first scene. That's just what we do. Not know we had to kill them. When we when we opened his movie there. Somebody's got to die in the first minute. We won't want people to watch it you get constricted by choice..
