    There is a sub-field in geometry that uses a straight edge and a compass (the kind that draws circles, not the kind that points north) to make shapes (bastardized explanation). The straight edge can be anything with a straight edge, most often a ruler, but sometimes also a textbook or a piece of cardboard. This guy uses a chair.

    Sure Danny. We believe you. <— Sarcasm

    the CHIVE must be paying people to get their content on digg. 1.3mb of page load for a 57kB picture? And then the pic is as old as the Internet…

    looks like prof. Lasocki from Politechnika Białostocka but really hard to tell. The furniture and green blackboard also matches equipment there.

    It’s very likely that this dude is a prof from Kaunas University of Technology, Lithuania.

    Please somebody confirm.
