A properly, conformally embedded once-punctured torus in R^3, parametrized by
with 1≤u≤2π, 1≤v≤2π, obvs.
(A surface in R^3 is properly embedded if its intersection with any compact set is compact. Thus, the puncture in this surface is placed “at infinity”. A surface is conformally embedded if angles in the intrinsic metric match angles in the ambient metric. Here, you can see that latitude and longitude lines on the torus meet orthogonally.)

How shall I begin this?
There are three topics that one is not supposed to talk about in the wardroom: sex, politics, and religion. We’ve had recent threads about both sex and politics, so it’s time for religion. To that end, here we go.
Way back when, there was a popular show called Jesus of Nazareth. Unfortunately it was canceled by the network after just three seasons, leaving behind a small but very devoted fandom. The fandom spread. Some of the fans told and retold all the episodes of the show that they had seen. Others copied out samizdat versions of the tie-in novels. Yet others wrote original fanfic.”
A friend of mine, Erik Vorhes—who knows Latin much better than I do—wrote this and posted it on Facebook (<- click for original post, with some fairly stunned responses).
So, there’s this pretend Latin conjugation of yolo floating around (thanks, Erica!). It unfortunately got me thinking — and I think the conjugation could be improved. The conjugation pattern feels like it should follow that of irregular verbs volo, nolo, and malo. It should also probably begin with an i. Here goes:
CONJUGATION OF IOLO, IOLLE, IOLUI
iolo (1s) I only live once
iovis (2s) you only live once
iovult (3s) it / she / he only lives once
iolumus (1p) we only live once
iovultis (2p) y’all only live once
iolunt (3p) they only live once
iolebam I was only living once …
iolam I will only live once …
iolui I only lived once …
iolueram I had only lived once …
future perfect indicative
ioluero I will have only lived once …
iolim May I only live once …
ioli Live only once!
iolite Live only once, y’all!
iolle To only live once
ioluisse To have only lived once
