A Sign from God

As of this posting, a signed picture of Jesus is worth about 2 cents. Must be very disappointing.

Hurricane History

There aren’t any more hurricanes these days than there were in the past, but they do seem to be more intense. Which may or may not have anything to do with global warming.

Backronyms

While some are amazed at the genius of “Stuck on Stupid,” Exploding Aardvark points out that it’s an established military backronym for SOS. Wikipedia has a list of that and other backronyms.

My favorites:

  • H2SO4 (sulphuric acid) – Hot Hot Searing! Ouch Ouch Ouch Ouch!
  • Yugo – You’ll Usually Get Out
  • Nike – Needs International Kids Employed
  • KMFDM – Kenobi Made Farmboy Do Magic
  • RESPECT (George Galloway’s party)- Recently Expelled Scottish Politician Endorses Communist Tyranny
  • USA – Unbelievably-Sized Arsenals

Virtual Sounds from Virtual Objects

If a musical instrument has never been built before, how can you know what it will sound like? That’s the question UC Berkeley graduate student Cynthia Bruyns is answering with Vibration Lab, software she’s designing to simulate the sound of any percussive instrument, real or imagined, in a computer. Her system could someday enable musicians to play instruments that exist only on the screen, enable the interactive design of new physical instruments, and even boost the realism of immersive virtual environments for education and training.
