3D Printed Sculptures Look Alive When Spun Under A Strobe Light | SF Globe
"This series of 3D printed sculptures was designed in such a way that the appendages match Fibonacci's Sequence... When the sculptures are spun at just the right frequency under a strobe light, a rather magical effect occurs: the sculptures seem to be animated or alive! The rotation speed is set to match with the strobe flashes such that every time the sculpture rotates 137.5º, there is one corresponding flash from the strobe light.

"... the sequence starts with two 1's, and each following digit is determined by adding together the previous two. Therefore, Fibonacci's Sequence begins: {1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89...} etc.

"What makes Fibonacci's Sequence so incredibly fascinating is that it manifests in nature in countless places, such as in the branching of trees, the arrangement of leaves on a stem, the flowering of baby broccoli, a nautilus shell, or even the spiral of galaxies; and that's just to name a few... One of the reasons that Fibonacci's Sequence appears in so many plants is because its particular arrangement of leaves along the stem allows for the most sunlight to hit each and every leaf."

傍白:日本に住んでいた間に、あたしが一番恥ずかしいながら誇らしげな瞬間は、2008年の秋の東京ブックフェアで、会場を出て外で立っていて、まだ自己紹介してないのに、ダーティさんとババさんは私の格好について「キャスリーン・ハンナそっくり!」って言ってた…ということです。
とにかくビキニキルは本当に本当に大切なバンド。これは面白い講談で是非読んでね。

Dear Media, Penn State Is Not A 'Sex Scandal,' It's A Rape Scandal | Mediaite
"The nomenclature surrounding 'sex crimes' is already hopelessly sterile, and the media routinely refers to cases of rape and sexual assault as 'sex scandals,' but that makes it no less important to call them out every time they do it.

"Sandusky is not accused of 'having sex' with little boys, he is accused of raping them. In our civilization, 'sex' with a child is not possible, since a child cannot consent to sex."
