The Infinite Cat

Ok, one more. You can’t leave the party without meeting Otto. He’s an infinite cat. That’s it! Thanks for coming, be it in person or virtually, and most especially, thank you for reading, commenting, and helping ScienceBlogs reach 1,000,000 comments!

A Surreal Playground

Suppose you’re not really the social type at all, and would rather play around in some serene playground. Well, we have something for you, too! Take a break and chill out in Vector Park. They have all sorts of weird things to click on, like three-legged headless acrobats, an odd assortment of objects to be…

Since this party is being held in my house, I imagine someone is certain to mention the giant squid in the bathroom. If you can’t make it, it won’t be you–but you can still have that same sort of undersea experience. Here’s a game review I wrote a while ago for JayIsGames, that was never…

Political Party Favors and Fun

It’s probably very common right now… you go to a cocktail party during the election season, and you end up discussing politics. Who said what? Who agrees with who? Hopefully, after comparing responses at the Science Debate 2008, you should have a good idea of where our candidates stand, and would be prepared for any…

Friday Fractal LXXX: ScienceBlogs Party

Ok, I’ll confess–school has been blowing my f*$#!^& mind this past week–but in a good way, really. I’m studying a variety of interesting subjects which are all tying together in surprising ways… which has lead me to do quite a bit of extra reading and writing. Not that I mind. I just wish I had…

Superpositioned Crows: Fractal LXXX

After blogging about my experiences earlier this week, I had crows on the brain. So, as I went drifting through fractal sets, trying to come up with something for this week’s Friday Fractal (now a Saturday Set), I kept running across crow-like shapes. One in particular stuck out, perhaps because I found it while adjusting…

Stalked by a Murder of Crows

It was a little like Hitchcock; an unconventional dark encounter on an unremarkable monochrome day. My dachshund and I were trailing down the same belt of green lawn, mud, and concrete as the summery day before, and the day and days before that. The skies were cast over with thick clouds, so we didn’t bother…

Speaking of Sarah Palin…

I love it when other people say exactly what I’m thinking, but in better words. Take Gloria Steinem on Sarah Palin for instance: Women have become so politically powerful that even the anti-feminist right wing–the folks with a headlock on the Republican Party–are trying to appease the gender gap with a first-ever female vice president.…

A Delayed DNC Report

Oh, what a couple of weeks. Between preparing for the DNC and hosting out of town guests, my plans to return to blogging were somehow delayed. Now the excitement has passed and I’ve run out of excuses to avoid my computer. So, as I turn to this giant pile of bloggable stuff, I am wondering…
