And you can make that triangle a small triangle...

You don't know anything about portuguese culture.

His real name is really Tiago.

No, he's fine. Brikwarriors do not like losing ANYONE'S pieces, because that is one less piece that gets to be blown apart another day.

Another way to incorporate triangles:this is a equilateral triangle,one angle equals your budget(always 60 cp)

or: the length  of this side, in inches *10 will be the CP budget. )make the side 1-3 inches long to prevent big missiles like nukes.)

If you are a true triangle pope, you will recognize this:

"The sum of the squares of the sides of a right triangle is equal to the square of the hypotenuse."

Random facts:

In an equilateral triangle, the angles always add up to 180ยบ.

Sine, Cosine, and Tangent are all awesome.

∆ on!

Actually Doc, any triangle's angle measures add to 180. In fact there's only one kind of equilateral triangle; that is, one that has all 60 degree angles. Any other kind of triangle is not equilateral.

Sine, cosine, and tangent are awesome, but you forgot cotangent, secant, and cosecant.

Also, sine is more fun when abbreviated as sin. Everybody has to love sin.
