The whole Proust and nothing but the Proust.

Bird is the Word

Harmonious pandemonium
Beaks squawking
A thousand wings flapping
Undulating waves of black
Navigating through seas
Of air

Spacetime Pillow

The idea for this pillow came from the diagrams used to explain gravity and the curvature of spacetime. When you rest your head on this cosmic pillow, the indentation mirrors the effect of an object on spacetime.

Corporate smells?

A few days ago I was thinking about how and why certain stores smell the way they do. A thought popped into my head: What if they (smelly stores) specially developed scents, perfumes if you will, that they use to scent their stores. Eau de Shoppers Drug Mart, anyone? Anyways, that thought led me to wonder what would happen if, in an effort to promote and increase customer loyalty, stores jumped on the celebrity perfume bandwagon. The result would be room sprays scented like each store. Are you a Starbucks fan? Spray Starbucks scent in your kitchen, brew up a pot of coffee or a latte (extra hot, skinny, no foam), and it's the closest you can be to a Starbucks without actually being in the store.

Lecture Hilarity

I've often kept track of funny professor quotes. This year my 17th Century Philosophy class has kept me thoroughly amused. From our discussions on Descartes:

"You think you see your best friend Larry in the distance. Then you get closer and realize its not Larry...its not even a man." (On why the sense are unreliable)

"You can watch your profs eat pizza and dribble cheese down their shirts and elbow patched corduroy jackets." (on a meet-the-profs event)

"Name something is metaphysics that ISN'T wacky!"

Student: "Why does God cause evil?"
Prof: "Evil? What evil?"

Student 1: "The volcano erupting over Pompeii was a bad thing."
Student 2: "Was it? Look at how much fun we have going to Pompeii today!"

"The furniture of the mind...its getting crowded in my mind..."


"Thats just the way we teach Hobbes. Asdfjlafei IM HOBBES Ajkfas;feinae"

"Like a chicken with lips...or a unicorn"
