Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

You bet!! Depicted here is a:

  • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
  • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
  • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
  • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

Not just satellites.
The EMP would destroy everything more sophisticated than a spoon.
Anything that runs on electricity: computers, phones, cars. Some older cars that pre-date electronic ignition (1970) might survive, but you’d have to replace their batteries & light bulbs.
Hardened military systems would be okay, as well as anything stored deeeeeep underground — like mining equipment.
Anyone with metal in their bodies (hip/knee replacements, pins, pace-makers, surgical staples) would burn from the inside. Your piercings might spark and/or burn you severely.
It would — literally — return us to a pre-industrial civilization overnight. Billions would die in the chaos that follows.
And it could happen at any time.
In fact, it could have happened eight minutes ago and we wouldn’t know it yet, since that’s how long it takes light from the sun to reach us.

The first time in my life I ever called bullshit on a cartoon was when Mr. T punched through a concrete wall (in one punch). I knew that such power was reserved for the Hulk. 
This, though…I could believe it. 
(other weird things that happened on that show: Mr. T and his gymnasts slew a cobra and ate it. I believe the head survived.) 

If that can’t really happen, why be alive.

HOLY F&%$!!!!! Despite the fact that Stephen and Mike were sucking balls - possibly each other’s (??) - this was one for the history books.

Yes, that is the rainbow coalition there. 1 Lawyer, 1 Irishwoman, and 1 idiot wearing one of the greatest shirts ever conceived (available here: http://skreened.com/thighswideshirts/) and thank you Mike for the amazing birthday present.

Okay, the usual stroll down memory lane of the CPM days, but then Gamal just freaking opened the floodgates and showered us with genius. Like a bukkakke of awesomeness!  

Ya see…. Gamal used to be a lawyer at Marvel Comics back in the days right after Toby Maguire was Spiderman and $115 million opening weekend was considered good. Well, Gamal had the lowdown on all the deals and the back-end (awghhhhh) deals that have come to shape our concept of summer entertainment. And now we know why… Spider-Man rebooted so damned quickly, why Green Lantern can suck so hard, why Stan Lee shows up as a cameo in every freaking thing, and why there will never be an end to the Marvel summer movies. (Alas, Gamal was unable to explain why Zak Snyder blows and sucks simultaneously and how Sucker Punch even exists.) 

It went into psychological breakdowns of superheroes and their creators, super villains, and it was a freaking amazing fascinating insight into the creation of what is arguably modern mythology. (Although Tim still prefers STAR WARS mythology.) An amazing time.

And I didn’t even mention the gay comics! Holy YAOI!!!!

Be Beautiful people, happy Memorial Day, and enjoy your Sesame Chicken!
