Ten Commandments, The Easter Egg - The Heston Identity

1. Turn your tv and vcr
2. Pop in 10 commandments
3. Watch on the back of one of the tablets that Charleton Heston brought down to the people, you can clearly see "sin2x+cos2x=1" carved. Therefore, this has since been known as the Heston Identity in trigonometry.

Could someone post a picture from the movie? I have this both on DVD and an early VHS tape and never saw it. I also did a search on Yahoo and google an I found no mention of it.

Here is a link to the Trig explanation: http://www.mumaugh.us/heston/trig_folder/Heston_Identity.Day%202.pdf. If I can get it right, basically the square of the sin of an angle plus the square of the cosine of the same angle equals one. If you still care.
