Snakes on Planes -- A Study by bananagram Snakes on Planes -- A Study by bananagram
I discovered three things while making this:

1) I'm a total nerd.
2) My mind wanders to very stupid places during math and physics class.
3) Snakes are fun to draw.

As an addendum, I thing it's awesome and cute and I quite enjoyed it.  It's just not very accurate wrt to math or science and I'm a bit of a stickler, if this were to be used as a teaching tool or as an example of science.

Not enough of a nerd.  Maybe spend more time listening in Math Class or just stick with art.  

#1 It's called and Inclined Plane not an Incline Plane

#2 A triangle, in a 2-D Cartesian Coordinate System, is NOT a Plane, it's just a triangle.  The entire 2-D space is the Plane.

#3  3-D plane is an Oxymoron.  A Plane by definition is 2-D.  You have simply drawn a 2-D plane in a 3-D space, and it's the same exact plane you should have drawn for your 2-D space.

#4  A 3-D Snake cannot be on (or in) a 2-D plane, as it has no third dimension.  Only a 2-D projection of said snake can be "on a plane."  So either a 2-D cartoon snake drawing or, more simply, just a squiggly line.  For a 3-D snake to be on a 3-D plane, the plane kinda needs to be an aeroplane instead as its the only 3-D plane of which I am familiar, other than an actual Inclined Plane, that you only drew in 2-D but is, in reality, 3-D and thus, a 3-D Plane.

Also, I highly suggest you read the book "Flatland", if it is science, math, physics, engineering et. al. (and not art) you wish to pursue

This is supposed to be funny. These are minor technicalities. You are being rude. And the last one is supposed to be a plain in the conventional sense.

haha 1 & 2 I share with you! And, what about snakes on an airplane?;) imagine some aerobatic maneuvers...
