More recursion after last week’s recursive map post

on August 3, 2021 in Creativity, Humor, Visualization

Last week I posted The most amazing “You Are Here” map you’ve ever seen, which featured a map that referred to itself. In the closing paragraph I referred to a book—Godel, Escher, Bach—on recursion. I’d read and reread the book in the 1980s and it stuck with me. Not sure if anything would come of it, I wrote the author, Douglas Hofstadter, with a link. Beyond writing back that he[…] Keep reading →

Comedian Bill Burr on Overpopulation

on June 13, 2021 in Humor, Nature

On the one hand I prefer posting my own work here. On the other, I find Bill Burr funny and insightful and he took on population, which few do. Readers from before the pandemic know I performed open mic standup. I couldn’t think of how to joke about it. Some of Burr’s humor is dark, yet I couldn’t help laughing out loud. So I’m posting the bits of his I[…] Keep reading →

I see people agreeing on its importance regarding sustainability and even existence, but disagreeing on how to view it or respond to it. The other day I posted Our environment is getting biblical about how we’re causing fire and brimstone to rain down from the skies and other situations like in the Bible. I thought about another biblical passage. When[…] Keep reading →

Our environment is getting biblical

on March 1, 2021 in Humor, Nature

You’ve heard of fire and brimstone. The Bible refers to them plenty. Here’s a typical passage, from Luke: But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Do you know what brimstone is? Sulfur. Do you know what makes acid rain? Sulfur! What did the ozone hole do if not let in fire? We’re seeing fire and brimstone[…] Keep reading →

How about helping polluters reduce pollution this way?

on October 26, 2020 in Humor

I pick up a lot of litter these days. The stuff I pick up, I usually carry to a trash can and put it in. Some of the main producers I see are McDonald’s, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, pizza shops, other cafes, and other doof stores. When we know the source of the garbage, what do you think about putting the waste back into the place it came from? For example,[…] Keep reading →
