Applying mathematics to Escher's Print Gallery
"This project aims to visualize the mathematical structure behind Escher's Print Gallery. This mathematical structure answers some questions about Escher's picture, such as: "what's in the blurry white hole in the middle?" By a five step process a wide variety of different pictures have been made, such as a straight picture, and a picture twisting the other way."
This is amazing stuff! Don't miss the animated zooms...
I can't believe it. I am, again, sans bicycle.
I had a great time at Meat last night. Great party, fun people, and netik and baconmonkey made us breakfast afterward. So that was all going nicely, up until the part where I wandered out to find that some time between 4AM and 6AM, someone had stolen the handlebars from my bicycle. Not the whole bike. Not the seat, or the front wheel. Just the handlebars. They clipped the cables and took the bars, but left everything else.
So I unlocked it, and when I picked it up... the fork fell off, since the handlebars were what held it on. So they could have taken the whole fork and front wheel as well, but they didn't. Huh?
What the hell is the resale value of a fucking handlebar! How much crack can you get for a shift lever?
I seem destined to not have a bike. It's a curse.
