Tetris Behind the Scenes

Let the Game Continue (04.10)

This image by Eduardo San Gil explains what is happening behind the scenes when you play a game of Tetris to generate the seemingly random stream of blocks. It was designed for a Threadless T-Shirt which I can’t seem to find anymore. But I did see that someone (Profound Whatever to be specific) had made a simulacrum of the image in Lego:

I also noted this pretty cool Kill Bill Princes Peach crossover image:

Adele Lyrics Taken Literally

Found this on reddit as far as I can tell the original is this post on Tumblr, I want more pop songs taken literally… I don’t even know the Adele song this is referencing, but I can imagine it’s all just as ridiculous.

Useless Superpower: Selective Telepathy

I had an idea this morning of a super power that would not only be completely useless but would also be a little annoying. What if you were telepathic but the only thoughts you could hear were other people’s earworms?

For the uninformed here is the definition of an earworm from Wikipedia:

An earworm is a piece of music that sticks in one’s mind so that one seems to hear it, even when it is not being played. Other phrases used to describe this include musical imagery repetition and involuntary musical imagery. The phenomenon is common in normal life and so may be distinguished from brain damage which results in palinacousis.

I think it might be an amusing aside to a character in a story, they experience some really weird incident and gain a super power but it’s completely rubbish… Maybe I’ve been watching too much Misfits…

Can anyone see any benefit to this super power? Or can you think of a more rubbish/pointless power?

Feel free to leave comments.
Incidentally the reason I put the definition of an earworm in this post is because when I told one of my colleagues of the idea he thought I was talking about this:

Geology Cake

"Geology" Cake

This cake by Kholla showing the different geological layers was based on a Threadless T-Shirt. I like it I’d eat it…

The same person also made this lovely steak cake also based on a Threadless T-Shirt, my two favourite things, meat and cake wrapped into one!
