  • Rooibos is actually pronounced roy-boss.
  • Pico de gallo translates to rooster's beak -- a little peck of flavor.
  • For complex symmetric M, K, the expression (vT K v) / (vT M v) is more accurate than the standard Rayleigh quotient for estimating an eigenvalue from an approximate eigenvector v, assuming vT M v is nonzero.

So now you know.
