I said yesterday that I would figure out the equation to Jensen Ackles' ass (hereby referred to as THE ACKLES ASS EQUATION), and now I've got it! I thought about explaining how I derived this equation, but figured not enough of you care to follow, so I won't waste anyone's time (but if you want me to explain it to you, feel free to ask).
Above is a lovvvely picture of Jensen Ackles' BEAUTIFUL spinal column with a grid super-imposed atop it and a red line marking the curve of his spinal column. *TOUCH*
And here's the equation to create such a curve:
I typed that exactly as you would enter it into a graphing calculator (since I'm betting not many of you want to graph it by hand if you want to graph it at all). I'm using a TI-83 Plus, btw. Now go to your 'window' options and set Xmin to 1 and Xmax to 10 or 11 so that you can narrow down your domain and you don't get the infinite curves that come with a sine function, and make sure your Ymax is set to something higher than 10, and there ya have JENSEN ACKLES' ASS.
The right side is a little bit higher than the picture, but that's only because I had some issues transferring dimensions from the grid on the image to the graph on the calculator. But still. Not half bad, eh?
EDIT: I made icons!!! CLICK! Cuz nothing is official until it is iconned. AM I RIGHT?!
EDIT (6/21/2011): I love that people are still commenting on this over 4 years later! Anyway, a few of you new commenters have been asking me details about the equations and how I derived it, but I regret to inform you I really can't tell you much about it anymore! I did this one bored evening while I was a sophomore chemical engineering major. Presently? I'm in grad school studying English lit./Shakespeare and film studies! I think I'd break my brain right now if I went back to engineering math mode to figure this out, lol. Sorry! But thanks so much for your continued interest. :)
