Asta’s Easter booty
The above is the Möbius-obverse to Molyneux’s problem: A blind person might hold the centermost egg in the photo and describe its shape, then hold another basketed egg and describe it’s shape, and yet another and so on and so on, but be unable to discern inscriptions. Then we would miraculously restore sight to our disabled subject. Would he then, by tactile memory alone, be able to pick out the egg wax-crayon etched: “Why is the rum always gone?” 1
The Bletchley is a spy-themed London bar where you have to crack codes to order drinks.
To do that, you use imitation World War 2 Enigma machines which generate a unique code for every “agent.” Orders are then transmitted via radio to the bar.
The venue is inspired by Bletchley Park, the site where British mathematician and codebreaker Alan Turing and his team used to crack German codes during World War 2.
Maybe don’t make it so bleedin’ hard to get soused?
These were created so long ago, how is it that they’re not already in every office building in America? 1
An interactive sculpture by Yarisal and Kublitz. Experience the most satisfying feeling when a piece of China breaks into million pieces . All you have to do is insert a coin, and a piece of China will Slowly move forwards and fall into the bottom of the machine, breaking, and leaving you happy and relieved of anger.
Sunday will be the fourth appearance of a blood moon over the last two years, in what is known as a tetrad series. The last time was in 1982; the next will be in 2033.
If some religious leaders are to be believed, none of us will live to enjoy that next blood moon. Most such leaders are of groups on the fringes of organized (sp) belief, although this week leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints felt moved to reassure those among its followers who are worried.
Irvin Baxter runs Endtime Ministries in Plano, Texas. He posts regular YouTube videos speculating over whether this series of blood moons could signal the end of the world.
“Some prophecy teachers are declaring boldly that this tetrad just ahead signals that something is getting ready to happen, which will change the world forever,” Baxter said on his website.
To warm you up for the event, here’s some CCR. Have fun.

- We’ve always wondered why an omnipotent god has spent the last couple thousand years being incredibly vague and cryptic about when he was going to destroy the world. Why doesn’t “s/he” use something similar to the Emergency Broadcasting System? We’ve always believed it’s because there is no god, n’est-ce pas? Which means you have to go to work tomorrow.. Yeah, we know it sucks. ↩
