... and ... queue blog:
Just tagging this for when I get home. sciencehack.com
Immediately I found: Planets and Stars. Scale and The Monty Hall Problem (which is quite interesting, it is in the wikipedia Monty Hall)
This is where the Wii rocks, just watch YouTube on the TV. Sweet.
Hermie moves again
Big hermie has moved shells again. Today he is back in his football shell.
I can't figure out how they are still alive. They don't appear to eat anything. Or do poopies.
I would like to buy a planisphere (which is like an astrolabe, isn't trivia fun? And wouldn't "Astrolabe and the Astro-Babes" be a great band name?) What the hell was I saying? Oh. Yes. Buying a planisphere, I found a page that sells them, and I quote:
What? Using a planisphere won't suddenly allow me to see the stars from inside my house?
What a rip off.
The First Annual Glazebrook Games
The Beta-Beta Chapter of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity (WTF?) are holding the First Annual Glazebrook Games. They plan to have games: frisbee, card games, eating contests, arm wrestling and a Zoolander style dance off.
No alcoholic drinks please.
What a bunch of. Fucking. Queens.
Please! This totally is against the principle of the Official Glazebrook Manifesto, which clearly states in Section 2 (Parties, Social Gatherings, Down Pub, and All Types of Get Togethers With Our Friends) Subheading 2 (Food and Beverages) Sub-Subheading 3:
Also of interest are the related topics:
2.1.1: Dressing Up (Fancy).
2.1.2: Dressing Up (Womens Underwear).
2.3.1: Falling Over.
2.3.3: Being a Little Bit Sick.
Only the Zoolander dance off is, with any certainly, legal. I'm not sure about arm wrestling. I think arm wrestling man on man is just wrong. Man vs woman, and woman vs woman is OK, but I will put it to the board and amend the Official Glazebrook Manifesto.
Is a land hermit crab, that is.
Since taking this photo, this particular hermie has changed his shell, twice. First he moved into one of our painted shells, it was decorated like a football. We moved his old shell out of the tank and put in some other new ones (in case he changed his mind.)
But I started to notice that every morning all of the shells had been moved around, most had been left upside down. So one of the hermies was looking for a new home. I put the old shell back into the tank and the very next day hermie was back in his old shell. Aaaah. Poor puppy, he just wanted to try the new shell for a bit, then move back.
I'm upping my blog rate but by upping the post volume I must drop the quality (this is the law.)
Did anyone watch the Dr Quantum video? Good huh? Matter acts like a wave, and that wave interferes with itself. A superposition of states. And these states collapse when observed. Tricky.
Here is some more trickyness, did ye know that 1.000... = 0.999...? Here is proof.
edit: Actually I started browsing round that maths site and it's all quite interesting. Want to impress your friends down the pub with the next number in the sequence ( 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 ) from the series Lost? Well now you can.
Carcassonne is a fun little board game that me and Tray used to play occasionally. There are a bunch of little card squares with bits of town or countryside printed on them, you split the tiles between the players. Then they take it in turns taking a tile and placing it next to another tile on the board. The idea is to make a nice city with farms to provide food, and score is based on this idea.
Norvig plays a Carcassonne co-op, heh, cool.
