Good Evening...

I've been talking with a guy on okcupid that began his first e-mail with:

There is a drawing of a one stringed instrument with concentric circles going from one end to another, measuring rational numbered fractions of the string as a whole. It is supposed to be the scale Pythagoras created when realizing that harmony is created when weights that are measurable in fractions of each other are struck. Where an anvil and one half its size are struck, the sound is pleasing. However if a third anvil that is 1.3849874644...the size of the original is struck, the sound is dissonant. This drawing of Pythagoras' first musical scale is the tattoo i want. What is yours?

How smart is that?! That's been my sentiment all week. He's freakin' smart!!! It would suck if we met and there was no chemistry. I mean, I guess it wouldn't be the end of the world but.... I'm thinking June 5th, Bands not Bombs but haven't yet mentioned it to him. After all, we're on week 1 of e-mailing.
