A boy lived with a mother and a father. His father was a scientist, and his mother was a mathematician. One day, his parents decided to give him a name. But unfortunately, they gave him an unexpected name.

'His name is Iron 59.', replied the parents.

The boy then looked puzzled.
What was the boy's name and why?

My brother has changed my password! That fool got into my computer, while I was in the Christmas room, and immediately changed it.

Darn it...

As he left the room, he lent me his nifty password change cheat sheet.
It simply said:

Brutally Related To Christmas
22 Characters

And on the back, it said:

A singular gram weight
enter image description here

What is the password?

A singular gram weight isn't 'a gram'. It only has two determiners in its beginning.

First Clue: this is not related to the area of a circle (pi r squared). What's interesting about pi, is that it comes in 2 forms: digital (3.14159....) and degrees of a 1/2 circle (180 degrees). And a sine wave is an incredibly beautiful curve found everywhere in nature.

Once you get the answer, memorize it and how you arrived at it. And it will serve as a reference for problem solving in wave mechanics.

Remember, according to the De Broglie Wave Equation, everything in the entire Cosmos travels as both a wave and a particle. And sine waves, or approximations to sine waves, are the standard form of travel representing everything from light waves, sound waves, to waves on an ocean.

The study of wave mechanics will then lead you to the understanding of Fourier Analysis/Transformation, noise cancellation head phones, and unlimited adventures in science and math.

Moral of the story: Sine Waves rule! And to figure out how powerful they are you must know how to integrate the area/volume.
Second Clue: "integrate".
