Here’s the 50th Friday Post!
OK, I have taken the “Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test“. You can too.
Here are my results:
“Fishing” as “searching” parable
(Apologies to John Steinbeck)
” There are good things so in the tide pools and interesting thoughts to be generated from the seeing. Every new eye applied to the peephole which looks out at the world may fish in some new beauty and some new pattern, and the world of the human mind must be enriched by such fishing. “

Here is a nerdy-librarian transposition of such an elegant statement about marine life and cephalopods:
” There are good things so in the tide pools databases, and interesting thoughts to be generated from the seeing searching. Every new eye applied to the peephole Google, which looks out at the world, may fish in some new beauty and or discover some new pattern [of relational knowledge], and the world of the human mind must be enriched by such fishing knowledge retrieval. “

Anyone who reads this blog might recall that I’m fond of cephalopods. However, even I am very doubtful about this unusual video (dialog in Japanese) called Baby Octopus (claymation), circa 1960’s:

My goodness, what happened to the baby octopus? Is that anyway to treat a cephalopod? No.
That’s the Friday Post #50 for May 21 2010, folks.
Enjoy this beautiful weather.
