Image Text

Maybe I should've tried Wexler?

Explanation

The joke is pretty self-explanatory, so I'll just fill in the backgrounds of Cueball's thoughts: The Bellman-Ford algorithm is an algorithm that calculates the shortest path(s) through a weighted digraph or collection of connected nodes or vertices. The “Wexler” in the image text refers to Wexler's algorithm, which is used to deal with the inverse problem of Electrical Impedance Tomography, or simply stated: the electrical conductivity of an (imhomogeneus) object.

And yes, both make terrible pillow talk, according to my significant other.

Discussion

How terrible of "pillow talk" it makes depends heavily on how geeky your significant other is. My wife has a T-Shirt that reads, "Talk Nerdy to Me!" -- mwburden 70.91.188.49 21:53, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Electrical Impedance Tomography involves attaching electrodes to things ... was he not trying to get a bit kinky? -- 147.209.216.245 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
