Some quick fun

Alright so I've been pretty bored of late. My options are either study more or do nothing... And do nothing tends to win those battles... So here's what I've found. While I love the picture of the week section, that's just not enough. Only once a week? With the amount of time I spend looking at cool things?! An insult! So here we go, get ready for some of the 'would be pictures of the week that I didn't have time for': (OH and sorry about the stupid pictures being ridiculously too large. Just click on any of them and they will redirect you to the link of the actual picture. I really tried to make it look good... but... alas... I failed... Oh well.)

And here's a movie that's pretty cool too! Kind on the same idea as the picture above:

Of course most importantly... Here are the renders of what I've been working on for my Computer Graphics Class... I think they're not half bad!

And Finally... Just because it worked, and my entire FHE and Kendall joined in: here's proof:

Hope you guys have enjoyed! (Most all of these pictures were found on http://www.ffffound.com)

On Food (and Acetominophen)

Dearest Loitrons, I have failed you. I have not written a true blog post in over a month. My only excuse is that my final exams are currently going on right now, and I barely even have time to expel bodily waste these days. I currently have a persistent headache that I can only assume is the result of repeated attempts to comprehend special relativity. No seriously, I have to learn that by Wednesday. Anyway, said headache is preventing me from sleeping, so I thought I’d finally update the blog until it (hopefully) subsides. Therefore, today’s blog is brought to you by Extra Strength Tylenol. Lots of it...

Kills the pain (and the liver)

When I’m not sketching light cones on a spacetime plot, I keep myself entertained with two things; psychoactive stimulants, and food. Since I’m pretty sure Nick isn’t too big on the first thing, I guess I’ll talk about the second thing.

Some molecules are more equal than others.

Food is like most things in life; you take it for granted until you don’t have it. Plus, you can also die if you don't have it, so it's a bit of a double whammy. It’s also interesting that as starving sensations increase, foods that normally don’t look edible begin to look extremely appetizing.


On the opposite end of the spectrum, sometimes people enjoy food too much. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for eating. Every meal is a personal challenge to see how much food I can shove into my stomach. After the third or fourth Whopper, though, the stomach tends to retaliate. But if you eat way too much food, it tends to show. And with some people, it shows so much that you wonder why they don't hibernate for 4 or 5 years until they can actually get out of bed and walk to Burger King.

Some foods are more accepted in different places. You’d be hard pressed to find a place that serves grilled sea lion in Colorado, and most Americans have never even heard of poutine. It’s really a shame, sea lion has such marvellous flavour.

Poutine is known to induce tonguasms as well

Anyway, I myself am currently starving, and I can only hope that I can fall asleep despite this still present headache, and have dreams of juicy sea lion steaks. Peace.
