Belphegor’s Prime

A one, followed by thirteen zeroes, 666, thirteen more zeroes, and then a one. It’s not just a palindrome with numbers associated with the occult, but an actual prime number. Spooky.

A much easier proof as to why 0.999999… equals 1.

I think the easiest proof is the following: the difference between 1 and 0.999999… is only 0.000000… thus no difference at all!

Have you ever noticed the refraction of light in a cup of coffee?

The envelope of light rays reflected or refracted by a curved surface is called a caustic (from the Latin causticus, “burning”); more concrete a catacaustic in case of reflection, and a diacaustic in case of refraction. The caustic is a curve or surface to which each of the light rays is tangent. In case of a circle, the resulting shape is a cardioid.

Wolfram MathWorld provides a list of famous catacaustics.
Rainbows are familiar examples of caustics as well!

These are fifth-order Bézier curves.

You can try interactive Bézier curves by using Desmos graphing calculator.
