Silly - Dirty Face


Nerds rock. Once some math geek realized that Google was turning equations that you searched on into graphs... well they had to come up with a graph for a favorite geek superhero. If you do a Google search on this equation:

y=2 sqrt(-abs(abs(x)-1)*abs(3-abs(x))/((abs(x)-1)*(3-abs(x))))(1+abs(abs(x)-3)/(abs(x)-3))sqrt(1-(x/7)^2)+(5+0.97(abs(x-.5)+abs(x+.5))-3(abs(x-.75)+abs(x+.75)))(1+abs(1-abs(x))/(1-abs(x))),-3sqrt(1-(x/7)^2)sqrt(abs(abs(x)-4)/(abs(x)-4)),abs(x/2)-0.0913722(x^2)-3+sqrt(1-(abs(abs(x)-2)-1)^2),(2.71052+(1.5-.5abs(x))-1.35526sqrt(4-(abs(x)-1)^2))sqrt(abs(abs(x)-1)/(abs(x)-1))+0.9

You get this.

Pretty damned awesome!

DIY iPhone Airplane Holder

Bwahahahaha. You have to love innovation! Here's a little tutorial (if you can't guess it just to look at the photo) on how to turn an airplane barf-bag into an iphone holder, so that you can watch a movie without having to hold your iPhone the whole time, or keep the tray-table down and have it propped up. I'm sure the method would work with other small media devices as well.

Arrr me mateys! Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day: http://www.talklikeapirate.com/

In our office we are considering having a competing day, International Talk Like A Parrot Day. It will be the same as International Talk Like A Pirate Day, just that you have to say all those piratey things in a parrot's voice. What do you think? Could it catch on? Could it be even more annoying?

Ya ho ho ho and arr bottle arr rum! Shiver me timbers! Hang em from avast (how vast?) yardarm. Walk ye landlubbers arr plank. Etc, etc, etc.

Kooking up world peace

Okay, so you want to make the world a better place, but you're just too damned lazy? Well now there is a global movement that you will enjoy participate in! Better still you only have to worry about it on one day, December 22nd 2006! Global Orgasm! Oh come on, surely you're not going to bitch about this one? Surely you have your niche here?
The mission of the Global Orgasm is to effect change in the energy field of the Earth through input of the largest possible surge of human energy. The intent is that the participants concentrate any thoughts during and after orgasm on peace. The combination of high- energy orgasmic energy combined with mindful intention may have a much greater effect than previous mass meditations and prayers.

The goal is to add so much concentrated and high-energy positive input into the energy field of the Earth that it will reduce the current dangerous levels of aggression and violence throughout the world.

Global Orgasm is an experiment open to everyone in the world. We hope the results will register on the worldwide monitor system of the Global Consciousness Project.
Yes, they do claim to have scientific evidence, so be sure to click on the science link.

It all sounds a little kooky, but what the hell, count me in. Worst thing that can happen is multiple orgasms. Hey, I get back from a three-week trip to Mississippi the night before, so of course I'm in! Oh I am sooooo in!

Hey, as the old Jewish mamas say, "Couldn't hurt!" (hurt pronounced hoit)

Realism vs. propaganda

Click on the image to see a larger view.
Those insipid motivational posters filling many of our workplaces tend to drive one crazy, as if the price of your unfailing loyalty could be measured in clichés. While this may be true of many workers out there, I don't think it's true of most of you. So you have to love the concept of demotivational posters. At despair.com they created a slew of demotivational posters to counter the corporate line. Now they are giving us the opportunity to do the same with their parody motivational generator. I've posted a link to my LJ before for a similar web page that allowed you to make your own motivational posters, but this one is meant to be contrary and it gave me the chance to make one in their theme

Thanks to debgeisler for the link.

Some odd disjointed notes

1) I am in a hotel for the week and was delighted to see I get the SciFi channel. Except when I turned it on last night they were showing professional wrestling. Huh? WTF? Sure it's fiction, but it's not science fiction... is it?

2) A UK channel is censoring smoking out of old cartoons. Um, why does this seem particularly silly to me? (Even as one whose allergies are affected by smoking and who generally supports efforts to minimize smoking in public places.) So smoking is bad but it is okay to have a character whacked in the head by a frying pan so they fall off a cliff while holding a stick of dynamite? Huh?

3) Sorry, but mice don't really like cheese. (Thanks to xsagirl for that link.)
