Stop the madness.

Wednesday, 3 January 2018

The hole diameter shrank 5/8″ in 10 years, 4/8″ the next decade. At that rate, donut holes should have disappeared by 1958 and should be negative 7/8″ in diameter by now.

π [(7/8″)/2]^2 = .60 sq. inches, so 7 decades later, donuts should have no holes and be larger in diameter, but if you define the circumference of the section of the torus as a constant k you realize that donuts don’t come in uniform sizes, yet they should be significantly larger than they were 70 years ago. Hostess and Little Debbie got some ‘splainin’ to do. Cake donuts typically weigh between 24 and 28 g (0.85 and 0.99 oz), whereas yeast-raised donuts average 38 g (1.3 oz) and are generally larger, and taller (due to rising) when finished. Say a donut weighed an ounce in 1927. That means the volume of the torus would be Oh nevermind.


This is what a lot of Californians are discussing now that pot is legal.

Desert Breath

Desert Breath 1

Located near the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt, Desert Breath is an impossibly immense land art installation dug into the sands of the Sahara desert by the D.A.ST. Arteam back in 1997.

It reminded me of and predates Louis Sachar‘s 1998 novel “Holes” that I read as a parent at the insistence of my youngun’s. I liked it, and the movie wasn’t bad either.
