Mindfart No. 4

Okay, it's high time for a new update to the site.

Here it is.

I probably shouldn't leave it as just an image and two sentences. So here's an explanation of the picture....

Well, basically, I was having a really bad day at the time, and everything was going wrong, hence the annoyed/irratated look on old Dark Aqua's face. But then, along comes optimistic friend! Well, not just one, basically everybody else in the entire WORLD was in a good mood that day, besides me. And that's that.

Oh, and then there's the alternate meaning, pointed out to me by one of my friends quite some time later. Which is that of guys always being wrong (hence the arrows surrounding the male Mindfart) and girls always being right (hence the female Mindfart holding up the "right" sign).
Yeah, I wasn't a big fan of that interpretation either.

You may have noticed this is Mindfart No. 4 and not Mindfart Week 4. Well... They've hardly been updated every week so far, have they? So an irregularly updated approach is needed.

FortyK out.

Mindfarts Week 3

You can really start to see the age of these now. XD

As you can tell, or at least I hope you can, this one is from Valentines day. The balloons are representions of the actually ones that were being handed around and stuff.

Basically there's grumpy old Dark Aqua in the middle, having no idea what all the fuss is about, just another occasion to spend money for no reason. In fact, there's so much "love in the air" that it's raining down on him in painful shards.

I'm rather fond of the text in this one myself, being on a different layer to the cloud and balloons. And ergh, how I hate JPG's... I normally never make the mistake of saving as one, but alas, I saved it, and without saving a base file version of it as well. And so that's why the picture quality is so crappy in this picture.

Ah, yes, about the last post saying this post would be the day succeeding said previous post. Yeah, deal.

Okay, seeing as I haven't posted anything in just about two weeks, I figure I may as well give you guys (lol, like there's anybody but Sam that reads this, and she's away. XD) another Blog post.

Which brings me onto the topic of Confectionery, and what to call it. Now, there's the obvious, correct choice of "Sweets", as said in England. Which, as far as I'm concerned, is where Confectionery was born. No, not created, not invented, born! Basically all I'm trying to say is that we have the best sweets. I mean, Cadbury's, English. Erm... Lemme think of something else... Here's a picture to keep you occupied.Mmmmm, Chocolate. Don't you just want some now? :P What's that? More english confectionery? A quick Wikipedia search concludes that Cadbury owns Bassetts, Maynards, Trident and Trebor, all great sweets! Not to mention Thorntons.

Anywho, what's with candy and lollies? Well, okay, Candy I can understand. I mean, America being independent and all, they want their own name for sweets. But lollies. Australians, this is a lolly.
Or even this is a lolly (albeit an ICE lolly):
But these are NOT lollies, they are clearly sweets:
Anybody who calls those lollies should be shot. Kthxbai.

Mindfarts Week 2

Okay, been a little over a week since I last posted one of these. Alright, almost two weeks. Look on the bright side, this means that you get one tomorrow!

In other news, I sort of have no idea what this one means. The aqua-ish one is usually the main Mindfart, and the blue one is just some random. Suppose it coulda been me moving to Australia and sorta being a loner for the first week or so at school...

Not much else to say... See ya.

Mindfarts Week 1

One day, in Geography, I was bored (Surprise, surprise) and looked at the board. There was an arrangement of lines, half-rubbed off, which, when looked at in a certain way, resembled a face. Like the one depicted on the Mindfart shown above. So in my School Diary, I drew it. I drew one for every week so far in the year, and then when I got home, I drew them again on the computer. The one above is the first Mindfart I drew.

They're basically all meaningless to anybody but me, being almost abstract in composition. This one was supposed to represent me looking forward to Australia, but thinking of England. The sun was just random when I thought that the thought bubble resembled a cloud.

Anyway, these guys should be regularly updated. Okay, like that would work. Make that irregularly updated. Theoretically there should be one for every week, but the chance of me sitting down regularly to draw one each weak is slim. I'll draw them when I want to draw them.

Well, in all truth, there's actually quite a backlog of these guys that I drew before I created this blog. So there should be a time where they're updated every week, up until I run out. Then it's just gonna be updated whenever I draw them. :P

Christianity and Hoverfrogs

Look who's back!

Yep, that's right, I got bored of the report again. I mean, I wrote like two whole extra paragraphs since last time I posted.

Anyway, I'm here to detail a little something I found whilst searching around and mucking about earlier.

First Topic: Which day starts the week? Monday or Sunday?
Well, this came up when I was talking to Sam when she mentioned that it was Sunday and hence the start of the week. I believe that Monday is the start of the week, and so told her that. She denied it. I argued back, I quote "It is. It so is."

A quick search on Wikipedia saw this statement come up. "According to the Christian count, Sunday is the first day of the week. This is the standard format in the United States, Canada, and Japan.
But in many other cultures, Monday is held to be the first day of the week. For example, Monday is xingqi yi (ζ˜ŸζœŸδΈ€) in Chinese, meaning day one of the week. The international standard, ISO 8601, defines Monday as the first day of the week. Its name in Georgian, Greek and Syriac means "first day". Quakers also traditionally refer to Monday as "First Day" eschewing the pagan origin of the English name "Monday"."

Not only am I slightly worried about the "pagan origin" part of that, I'm also slightly worried about Christians and their hypocrisy. Doesn't that story about God creating the world END on Sunday and START on Monday?

Second Topic: Hoverfrogs

After proving to Sam that my opinion was valid, I moved on to search for something relevant to my report and so typed "Physics" into the Wikipedia searchbox. I found this:
It's a picture of a magnet hovering above some sort of superconductor thingymajig. Of course, the realness of stuff on Wikipedia is questionable, but I was captivated by this picture. Maybe using this method, called the "Meissner Effect" we could develop hovercars? (Yeah, silly I know, just the hopeful dream of a nerdy teen). (EDIT: In fact, I remember now hearing about something similiar to this being used in Japan on trains...). I decided to investigate. I then found this:
It's hard to tell, but it's a picture of a hovering frog. That's right. A. Hovering. Frog.
I don't care HOW it works, but it's the levitation of an organic lifeform. Forget Hovercars, we have Hoverfrogs!

And that's that. Back to the report.
