We Call Them Animals

Okay, this is completely insane.

I very much doubt that this is how elephants actually see the world.

BUT: someone was able to train an elephant to do this. And the precision and alacrity with which the elephant completes the work suggests to me that this complex task is being done with willingness and care, if not necessarily comprehension of its indexical meaning.

C'mon, no matter how you slice it, this is mind-boggling.

Stuck at home, sick, bored...

And... here ya go.

Alchemy Records book cover

Typefaces: Tom's Headache and Handwriting-Dakota.

Who's The Dummy Now?

Do not be fooled by this ridiculous IQ Test.

It's just a scam to get you to subscribe for $9.99 a month (!!!). Shameful.


Awesome "Evolving" Algorithm

Ooo this is spiffy!

Looks like the beginnings of a new compression scheme... among other interesting possibilities.

Where have all the acorns gone?

It's hard not to feel apocalyptic when you learn that oak trees seem to be on strike. Read the Washington Post article.

Steady, steady, steady...

Be like the chicken.

If this did not make you laugh hysterically, well, I just don't know.
