Science - Unfortunate sex lives of bananas

I don't really have much to say about this asides from the fact that it's pretty damn interesting (source).
So forget about the tawdry sex lives of fictional characters from your favorite TV shows for a moment and click on the link to get the inside scoop on bananas or, alternatively, you could split. At any rate, there's no need to go ban... Enough banana jokes. : j
Click here to read a well written articles about bananas! It's a good read, hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Infographic -Logical fallacies

I don't remember where I found this, but this is where it is from.

I find it interesting how clever or trained people know how to use these to manipulate conversations, whilst others fall into these unwittingly and actually weaken their position in a discussion because of them, but only if the people they addressing have critical and analytical minds.

I name no name and point no fingers, but amongst a human history of examples, a current example of a place rife with logical fallacy (and repeatedly, though ineffectively called out for it) would be a certain vulpine TV network. ; j

Art - Mengyu "Jenny" Chen

So this neat artist/photographer/designer/all-around-creative person is getting around the net...
Her name is Mengyu "Jenny" Chen. Her website is here.

I first saw her work over on laughingsquid, and she's been cropping up all over the place for the following gifs:

 Which are all neat, but there's a lot more cool stuff on her website.

She's apparently a part of a project to save the last Polaroid production plant to keep instant photography alive. So they made ads for magazines that are to be realized on card-stock imitating the look and feel of actual Polaroids, here's one below.

Or you could check out her illustrations:

Or her photography, or crafts etc.
Basically, check out her website, you might enjoy it!

By the way. New mail link is on the top left.
Feel free to ignore or use it as you see fit. : j

Photography - Simulator

I found this neat little app via IZ Reloaded (source).
It essentially lets one experiment with camera settings and see what happens.
I would have loved to have had this back when I was first learning to take pictures, and when, of course, I had to buy film and have it developed to do so.

 At any rate, it's fun to play with, and even more so if you aren't used to having control over your shots.


In other news, the format of this blog is going to be changing soon.
Basically, I'm going to turn comments off and add a email link for those who absolutely want to get back to me.

Thanks for reading.
In conclusion, here is a picture of a sleeping kitty:
