Magpie Blogging

Shiny things I have found today:

1. The Internet has a diameter of about 10,000 pookies.

Take a look at their graphics and find out just what a pookie is.

2. The Random Surrealism Generator

Can never get enough surrealism in a day, or enough random engines for that matter. Their random Shakespear quote generator is quite lovely as well.

3. Akiyoshi's Illusion Pages

Not recommended for those sensitive to anomalous motion illusions.

4. The Philosophical Lexicon
desousaphone, n. A musical instrument, descended from the harmanica (q.v.); like the bassoon, it is often used to provide comic effects in program music.

foucault, n. A howler, an insane mistake. "I'm afraid I've committed an egregious foucault."

jerry-mander, v. To tailor one's metaphysics so as to produce results convenient for the philosophy of mind. E.g. "Paramecia don't have mental representations; therefore the properties they react to are nomic." Hence jerry-rigged, adj. said of an argument proceeding from jerry-mandered premises. "Paramecia only react to nomic properties; therefore, they don't have mental representations."
