Darwin

January 4th, 2020 Comments off

This is low-level programming, energy efficiency, geometry and Darwin.

People (humans) always seem take the shortest route. The gain in this particular location? It must be less than 2 metric meters (I probably could, if I remembered it correctly – use Pythagoras to calculate the distance more precisely)?

– What on Earth are you talking about?

Please pay attention to the non-existing grass, the cone in the back of the picture and where the pavement is actually located, never mind the many objects (cigarette stubs) in the front left corner of the picture.

It is humanity. Funny. And it is in fact the shorter route according to Pythagoras…

37 °C + Hands

January 3rd, 2020 Comments off

The title is a reference to temperature*.

The previous post was about temperatures and the periodic table that was constructed by several people but is largely attributed to the Russian chemist: Дмитрий Иванович Менделеев, Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev (1834 – 1907).

How can this be remotely related?

Well, you will need to read the previous post: 1052 °C; think about melting points, possibly Barcelona but you must not look into the looking glass.

The venue is the same: Color + Sachet; a different day and This Is A Ride that is at times parked right outside was not present.

The final reference is one of my favourite d’n’b albums of all time 37 °C And Falling and the label to booth.

But hey, that’s just a bonus!

* Average body temperature.

Aesthetics are nothing but convention(s); either they are hard to change or have been the same and will remain so or they’re just recurring?

The figurine pictured is at supposedly at least 12000 years old… does its shape not seem somewhat familiar? Kim K. anyone?

Climate Chg Is A Hoax II?

December 10th, 2019 Comments off

I don’t know much about insects, but I do believe that this is some sort of mosquito and not a regular fly. It has spotted wings, so it is not a regular mosquito either…

I found it moving/flying in my kitchen on the 10th December 2019.

And regardless of if it’s in fact a mosquito or not – the outside temperature is currently 5 degrees centigrade below zero as opposed to 5 degrees centigrade above yesterday.

I wonder, where did it come from? Are there more?

It’s Plain To See That I’ll Be…

December 7th, 2019 Comments off

It is an actual bonafide rather large (165×235 mm) and not uncommon orange SL-sticker*. I could simply not resist taking home with me. For one thing I really do like signs, pictograms and visual information items. Especially the amusing ones…

* SL (AB Storstockholms Lokaltrafik), it the Greater Stockholm Local Transit Company, formerly known as: AB Stockholms Spårvägar (SS) [sic!]. There was a name change in January 1967. However, you can still see the old logo here and there in the fair town of Stockholm SL. The adherence to the actual time table does not come close to Japanese or any other minimum requirement.

A related item (105×148 mm). It translates to: “Be so kind as to remove this object!”. In my mind that can be literally anything including myself or someone else?
