 Euler's Formula
This page lists proofs of the Euler formula: for any convex polyhedron, the number of vertices and faces together is exactly two more than the number of edges.
According to Malkevitch, this formula was discovered in around 1750 by Euler, and first proven by Legendre in 1794.
Perhaps there is a proof of Euler's formula that uses these polynomials directly rather than merely translating one of the inductions into polynomial form.

Proposition XI: If c be a given recursive, consistent class of formulae, then the propositional formula which states that c is consistent is not c-provable; in particular, the consistency of P is unprovable in P, it being assumed that P is consistent (if not, of course, every statement is provable).
A set of formulae is "recursive" if there is a mechanical procedure for determining whether a given formula is in that class or not.
The formula is 17 Gen r, which is a formula that states its own unprovability.

 Formula 17: Testing a Formula for Mainstream Cinema in Taiwan
At a recent Taiwanese film festival, Formula 17 was heralded as one of the representative works of the “7th graders” generation, which refers to the 7th decade of Taiwanese born after the beginning of the republic of China in 1911, that is, Taiwanese born between 1981 and 1990.
In Formula 17, as well as the recent Taipei 21 (Alex Yang, 2003) and Love of May (Hsu Hsiao-ming, 2004), cellular phones, instant messaging, and e-mail are not just props but are media through which important communication, misunderstandings, and reconciliations are made possible (2).
Formula 17 was so popular among the Spot crowd that even after its initial three week run, the film was rolled back out for a Valentine's Day program, as well for the Tailly High festival.

 yax-380 Film censorship - Formula 17 banned
The Films Appeal Committee's reason for banning the film Formula 17, as reported by Today, was that it created an illusion of a homosexual utopia, that everyone in the film was homosexual, and that no negative aspects of the lifestyle were portrayed.
They have justified their decision to do so by claiming that the majority of Singaporeans are not receptive to homosexual lifestyles’ (a phrase that no one has yet defined).
Though I suspect that the FAC may stick to its guns simply for fear, lest it be seen as having made a misguided decision, I nevertheless strongly urge it to reconsider its decision and to retract its pejorative statement.

A silly-sweet, gay romantic comedy aimed primarily at teenage and college-age audiences, "Formula 17" placed ninth in Taiwan's 2004 ranking of highest-grossing Chinese-language films.
Partly because of its bouncy, bubblegum soundtrack and enormously appealing leads, this tiny indie has connected with a generation typically critical of homegrown talent.

 JR.com: Formula 17 (2005) - DVD in Movies: Comedies:
Directed by 23-year-old Yin-jung Chen (AKA DJ Chen), FORMULA 17 puts a lighthearted, humorous spin on gay life in Taiwan, painting an idealized portrait that contains no mention of the difficulties associated with the gay community.
Ponderous topics like AIDS, societal pressures, or coming-out issues are absent, and there are no women or straight people--only beautiful young men with hearts more or less made of gold.
There is never any real doubt as to how this love story will end, but the pleasure of the story lies in the telling.

Much of the film dawdles in stereotypical situations and poorly acted and directed excursions into the bar scenes, but the work of Duncan Lai and Tony Yang makes the film credible and well worth watching: both men are handsome, talented actors who develop a fine screen chemistry.
For all its weak points, FORMULA 17 is a film with a big heart and a gay film that manages to deal with some important issues of fidelity and honesty instead of focusing on merely the superficial.
Formula 17 was really quite a funny movie since I did not know anything about it; I was surprised that it was a comedy about homosexuals.

 Formula 17 - Movie Review
It can seem unfair to call any movie a “gay movie.”; After all, we don’t usually talk about “straight movies.”; But it must be said that Formula 17 is a really gay movie, at least in the sense that every character who appears on the screen is gay.
(His erotic dreams blend sex with math formulas.) He’s hoping to crash with his old buddy Yu (Chin King), find a summer job, and lose his virginity, perhaps with a “friend” he’s met on the Internet.
Formula 17 is consistently charming and cute, but it’s ultimately nothing more than a fairy tale of dreamy first love in which each shift of emotion is accompanied by yet another Canto-pop ballad.
