  • OK, call me a conspiracy theorist. Who would want/need hand written encrypted notes?

    I went an googled "rick mccormick physics" and immediatly got a Physycist specializing in "Metamaterials" from Sandia Labs who presented at a symposium in January 2011.

    Anyone else think these may be puzzle pieces that somehow fit together?

    Im just saying.... Made me say "hmmmmmm"

    • I don't really see how encrypted notes in a dead guy's pocket would relate directly to his murder (most likely something unrelated, unless there's a Hollywood summer blockbuster serial killer lurking around MO circa 1999)... but googling up a guy with the same name makes no sense whatsoever. So the guy who was killed over a decade ago didn't have a unique name. What does that have to do with anything, man?

Every nonzero finite dimensional inner product space has an orthonormal basis. It makes sense, when you don't think about it.
