Iceberg - 氷山



欄外の声: But then how did it interact with the ordinary baryonic matter in the Titanic's hull?

Normal Matter(通常物質)
Dark Matter(暗黒物質)

My hobbyu: Refusing to understand the iceberg metaphor

Alt-text: 90% of the iceberg is hidden beneath the water, but that 90% only uses 10% of its brain, so it's really only 9%.

UFO Evidence - UFOの証拠


UFO Evidence(UFOの証拠)

白ハット: You scientists aren't willing to take my UFO evidence seriously!

男: I once spent a whole day trying to confirm the existence of a director's cut of Cats (2019) where the cats had anatomically correct CGI butts.

男: It's honestly embarrassing how fast I'd do a 180 if your evidence seemed promising.

Alt-text: [Decades in the future] "Well, the good news is that we've received definitive communication from aliens. The bad news is that they're asking about Cats (2019)."

Marble Run - マーブル・ラン


Marble Run(マーブル・ラン)

女: Check out this cool video of a Rube Goldberg marble run.
男: No! Not yet.

男: I've always known I'm doomed to eventually become one of those people who builds elaborate marble runs in their garage.
男: I can feel the pull.
男: So satisfying.

男: I just want to do as many other things as I can before I give in and disappear into that world.

女: So you know where you're going to end up, but you're trying to take a really interesting and circuitous path to get there.
男: Exactly. Bounce around, maybe go off a few jumps.

Alt-text: I have so many plans. It would incorporate a Galton board, a Ranque-Hilsch marble vortex tube, and a compartment lined with pinball bouncers with a camera-and-servo Maxwell's Demon that separated the balls into fast and slow sides.
