pancake day

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

on tuestag it was pancake day! blodgett made 8 pancakes but consumed only 7. the remaining pancake blodgett carefully dried and preserved for later scientific examination. it now present to you results of rigorous analysis.

note on general methodology: pancake drying reached steady state by fritag, but was kept under observation for a further 2 days in case of surprises

evidence 1:



observation 1: entirety of pancake warped, note well that there are FIVE (5) raised edge sections.
conclusion 1: all pancakes inherently desire to be pentagons.

evidence 2:



observation 2: some parts of pancake wrinkled up. is common knowledge that fingers and toes wrinkle up in the bath.
conclusion 2: all pancakes inherently desire to be in the bath.

evidence 3:



observation 3: edges are highly crispy.
conclusion 3: all pancakes inherently desire to be crisps.

blodgett thus present what is theorised to be the happiest pancake in the world!

happy pancake

after blodgett contemplating this picture:

it thought that it would be good if babies were called gerbils. they seem to have many gerbil-like qualities, the word gerbil also suits well the concept of sprog.

at last! scientific proof that chips cause happiness!

pure green

Monday, February 8th, 2010

blodgett have completed work on a most useful utility, it determine which of your pictures are most green.
vague apologies this amazing feature currently *nix-only as blodgett rather lazy with file paths

cods they are here:

to use:
0) save script to disk, e.g. into home directory
1) open terminal
2) type without the quote marks the following:
“python [image folder] [output folder]”
where the part [image folder] should be replaced by the path to the image folder you want scanned
and [output folder] should be replaced by the name of the folder you want the results in.

note! all subdirectories of [image folder] also searched!

for example, say blodgett has pictures in
and wants to put the sorted ones into a folder called ‘green’ in its home directory. blodgett would type:
python pictures/artwork green

whereupon the folder called green would be magically created and filled with artworks, greenest first! yay!

exemplary conductance

while we at the musica thing, whole of new year’s concert was awsum, partly because georges pretre is a DUDE of the highest degree. blodgett offers the following evidence to support this opinion:
