46 Random Questions to Answer in Random… Randomly

Okay, so I may need to expand my vocabulary beyond the word ‘random’… unsystematic, perhaps? Unmethodical? Slapdash? Anyway, here is a list I found floating around on Tumblr and I figured hey, I should answer them but not right away — I could totally have each questions head a blog post or two. And thus, the challenge of 46 Random Questions to Answer in Random Randomly (or 46 RQARR for short ) is born. I urge you, my dear readers, to participate in the fun!

I can see that several of these questions are quite personal, i.e. numbers 8, 21 and 44 and I do plan to answer the questions I choose as honestly as I can. However, I reserve the right to skip over certain numbers and just post a funny joke instead, like so:

Oh look, I seem to have found my new calling! It’s a long time coming seeing as I’m well on my second year of being a Media student, but the time has come at last: I have tasted the delicious … Continue reading

That Awkward Moment When Robots Are Better Than You At Drawing

I mentioned last week that over the summer holidays, I went to the Science Museum in London. Well, the museum had a cool section dedicated to the Internet and other wireless-related technologies called the Chrome Web Lab. Clearly, it’s powered by the big men in Google. I had fun trying out all the little activities, but what stood out was when the robotic arm drew my face. You can watch the little clip below:

Apparently, what happens is that the camera takes your picture and then some computer program locates the ‘main’ lines of your face. This becomes the set of instructions that the robotic arm follows, and hey presto! your face appears in the sand.

Isn’t it awesome what we can do with technology these days? I mean, the outline of your face into the sand seems completely pointless to me, but the face recognition software is definitely cool to watch. I felt like a little kid seeing a lava lamp for the first time…

Over and out.

Summer Lovin’ (Had Me A Blast)

Yes, it’s officially the end of summer. Let the mourning begin!

School starts in less than nine hour’s time and, once you subtract the time spent sleeping, it’s not that far away. Knowing me, I’d stick by my usual body schedule and sleep for ten hours. Yes, I know it’s physically impossible… and yes, I have timed myself over several occasions. (Ten hours is the average amount of hours I ought to sleep in order to feel happy and refreshed.)

Moving on… As school begins again (I dread to think of the workload I’m sure to have), the better half of my brain activity focuses on the summer just past. The summer of 2012 has just been absolutely, positively fantastic. The highlights have been, in chronological order:

  • my first job, which is epic in and of itself
  • a tour to see Stonehenge — yes, the Stonehenge
  • random museum hopping that one day in London
  • after five years, I finally saw my childhood best friend again, and
  • more castle visits!

This summer has definitely been action-packed. Continue reading

Caine’s Arcade (Or, What A Kid Could Do With Cardboard Boxes, Imagination and Perseverance)

The answer to that question is this: $74,665.

So apparently some little kid in East LA spent his summer vacation building an arcade from just cardboard boxes and Scotch tape. Sound interesting? You bet your bottom dollar it is! Watch the video below to find out more:

Seeing Caine impact so much people by doing what he loved — and being such a kid about it! — simply brings me to get in touch with my emotions (buried deep, deep under rubble) and just go “Awww…” :3 <— see that? That’s a cutsie face. That’s what I looked like watching this documentary.

I remember when I was a kid (well, more of a kid than I am now), I used to climb into cardboard boxes and pretend I was travelling from country to country and saying hi to various family members and friends. I can also recall, very vividly, packing a rucksack and imagining that the stairs connecting the first floor to the second floor was some sort of mountain and climbing up would mean I was scaling a dangerous forest terrain… And then I’d grab the laundry basket, plop myself inside, and slide back down the stairs.

Ahh, fun times. Fun times.

If I try sliding down the stairs now, I’d most likely get a broken bone than a thrilling experience of sledging down the Alps. To be a kid again, eh? The world was limitless. For a child, you can do anything you want without leaving the safety of your den — in Caine’s case, his father’s shop.

So good on ya, Mr Caine! You’re a genius and a mighty inspiration for those who forgot the real meaning of fun. Who needs TV when you can have a cardboard box?

I Have Tumblr!

This is what happens when you have too much time in your hands: you get yourself a Tumblr account, despite the fact that you already have Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Formspring, YouTube… the list is endless (figuratively speaking, I hope).

I’ve heard of Tumblr before, but I never really got the energy to make one until recently. It took me days to figure out what Tumblr is in the first place, how to use it and what the heck does reblog mean? I finally got the hang of it, though — eventually. Now, to connect my WP to it… *strokes imaginary beard*
