No, his mind is not for rent
to any god or government.
Always hopeful, yet discontent.
He knows changes aren't permanent,
but change is.

Nevertheless, the OP should have visited the OEIS first for his sequence...

comment Mathematica: How to convert scales to frequencies?
Sure, but that site you speak of didn't exist at the time you asked this question (otherwise, you'd have asked it there to begin with ;) ). Anyway...

comment Help find hard integrals that evaluate to $59$?
Ah, shoot; let me look for my notes on this... if memory serves, I trolled through OEIS and looked for generating functions.

comment Parallel to line on $f(x)=1+\sin(x)/x$
Well, since the discontinuity at $0$ is of the removable kind, I went ahead and defined the value of the function at $0$ to be the same as the value of an appropriate limit. Or, did you not tackle that limit while learning calculus?

...the function you were asking about. What else could it have been?

comment Any four points on the space curve given by the parametrization $(t,t^2,t^3)$ are noncolinear
After noting that the matrix is Vandermonde, recall particular conditions on the rows for a matrix to be singular. Interpret geometrically.
