    So if you graph this for t from 0 to 116pi...

    Impress your math teacher! Better get to memorizing!

    Wish I could copy/paste and try it out for myself...

    Not sure what you're going to paste it in to. But maybe the attached will help?

    I found it on Wolfram Alpha somewhat randomly.

    I look forward to seeing this mentioned on the next episode of Big Bang Theory.

    Nevertheless, really cool!

    Thanks, although there appear to be some unbalanced parentheses in that text file you provided...I definitely don't get the SJ picture when I plot it.

    Edit: No, I take that back. Must be something weird I'm doing in R...

    Edit2: So, for anyone who wants to try it out themselves, I've attached some R code that works. Note that you have to source() it, and it requires the fUtilities package. R freaks out and misses parentheses if you try to copy/paste such a long string.

    There are many other person curves available if you are interested...
