Saturday Matinee – Doodling With Some Zees

Saturday, 11 December 2010

Doodling in Math Class is an awesome series with great commentary. (There are more here, here and here.) I did a lot of n-pointed star studies and other similar graphics, but teh Utoobage hadn’t been invented yet to record the brilliance.

One of the great modern animators, Bruno Bozzetto has done it again.

What the heck, here’s another Bozzetto classic.  Now how do I transition from Bozzetto to a music video? …got it.

Bozzetto to Bozzio. Double zees. Which takes us to you-know-who:

1980’s vintage ZZ Top. Now we’re gonna take away one more Z…

Zappa’s “Bamboozled By Love/Owner of a Lonely Heart.”

And with that, have a great weekend folks and be back here tomorrow for more fun.

Climategate Summarized

Tuesday, 1 December 2009

Norwich, England (Strutts News Services) – Since all of the raw data regarding climate change  has been finally released to the public for scrutiny after many years of cooperation by the keepers of such proprietary knowledge and research, we at Tacky Raccoons believe it is our duty to present this data in a form that is easily understandable to all sentient beings.

(Click on any graph to enlarge it.)

This first graph illustrates the Vapors Constant. It reflects the ideal average temperature of the globe, without meandering from the mean average.

This graph shows the Vapors Constant, and adds the values purported by the Bieber-Naughton studies as well as the Moholy-Nagy data.

Here we retain the Vapors Constant while showing the results of Zager & Evans/Fooser-Bieber Conundrum. Note that they diverge.

Combining all four studies and retaining the Vapors Constant, results in the graph above.

Using the Strutts-Crumbler method, and overlaying the previous data sources, the results coagulate into a recobinizable pattern.  This pattern can be simplified further.

Once the data are resolved and mushed around a bit, the patterns become intuitively obvious to the casual observer.

It’s the elusive “Hockey Puck” of global warming.

We’re doomed.
