O.B.'s secret formula for Love Potion No.9

No, no, no and no.
That said, I can draw parallels from all your guesses to the answer I'm looking for.

The formula to work out how much love in your heart.
Or your trousers/kilt depending on the time of the year
You use it to calculate ß (if it doesn't show up right: it's meant to be that b-like character)

You mean β?
February 7 2007 12:52 PM EST
And β equals what? ;)
February 7 2007 12:53 PM EST
Well, β should equal β... ;)

Something with viscosity?
February 7 2007 1:18 PM EST
Because of that Dirac function, the entire equation doesn't make much sense to me... β equals zero for all values of S, except when S=-1, then β is ∞

Vo = Snellen visual acuity; (6/6 normal; 6/12 just meets driving standard)
My guess (and it is purely shooting from the hip) is that it is a formula to describe reaction time (perhaps distance, but I'm thinking time) of a pilot/driver to visual stimulus.

Thanks G_Beee...your clue just basically made it a Google competition -- it was fourth link on the page when I googled it. *smile*
February 7 2007 2:59 PM EST
Oops my bad. I actually only meant to post "Vo = Snellen visual acuity" as the clue but c&p'd the rest by mistake.
Oh well, fastest on the google also wins I guess :)
February 7 2007 4:35 PM EST
That part was all I googled, along with the words "beta" and "equation". Fourth link on google. *smile* With the rest, I am sure it would have been top hit.

That link you posted messes everything up. When I click on it, another browser pops up and then anytime I click something on CB, another browser wants to open.
February 7 2007 5:13 PM EST
At least in FF, which is my current browser of choice.
yes happens to me too,
Barth, the website you got your user pic from should have been called the Joy of Techs. ;)
