Square thoughts

So Mrs. Nat’s TV and I are watching last week’s Flashforward, and there’s a character doing a police search for something who says “I’ve covered a five block radius, only three to go!”

And dadgummit, it was the Mrs. who noticed that. “Is that as crazy as it sounded?”

Yes. Yes it is.

For the math-imaired out there, if you’re searching an 8 block radius, and have so far searched a five block radius, you are not most of the way there. In fact, the amount of work that you have left is more than one-and-a-half times as much as the work you’ve already done.
