Ze Aluminium Analogy

This is Chemistry Philosophy at its finest. Well, perhaps not finest, but it is it nonetheless.

But first, a bit of a background story. This was my instant thought when Sir Shaheer mentioned Aluminium and its Aluminium Oxide layer to us concerning the physical appearance of Al.

But first, a bit of Chemistry 101. Otherwise the brilliance of this analogy won’t be recognized. First, Aluminium is a metal. Basic knowledge, that is. And as a metal, you expect it to be shiny, which it is. Its a shiny silver metal that has luster. But due to Aluminium’s reactivity, it reacts with oxygen present in the air. The product to this is called Aluminium Oxide, Al2O3, and it forms a grey layer on top of all exposed surfaces of the shiny metal. So now there’s a shiny silver metal, with a coat of grey on top of it, encasing it. So, when aluminium reacts with oxygen, it looses it’s initial luster. Make sense so far? Great. If not, go reread it or google it.

Aluminium’s soft, the lab type, and you can slice it with a knife. If you do, you expose the inner shiny metal. The positive (speaking in terms of how the luster represents hope, naivety, pureness. Positive is not in terms of ions here… =P )aluminium, when exposed to the the world, to reality, to the cruelness and harshness of the world, is over powered by it, and soon, very very soon, it looses that luster, and loses that hope. It becomes grey eventually, and inevitably, just as the aluminium on the original outside was. It became just as grey and dull and non-porous as the aluminium (that reacted to form the outer aluminium oxide layer) before it.

The sound of your mind being blown right now.

The Great Gatsby- Gatsby’s Green Light

I was thinking about The Great Gatsby…both the book and the movie (although I haven’t read the entire book yet. Still stalled on Chapter VII =P =/ ) when I started to try and literary analyze the green light.

I thought- if I’m going to literary analyze anything, might as well record the thought. Maybe I’ll laugh at it later, for being so off or for thinking something so naive (perhaps that would be possible if the future-me was ever mature. Hah. Now that IS a laugh.). Maybe I’ll nail it on the head. Maybe I’ll just do it for fun. Maybe all three.

At first, I just thought it to represent something like the unattainable, or the desires that are just out of reach. But then, the scene from the movie came in, the MOTION of the green light and this thought just struck me-

It’s like a Lighthouse. It’s necessary. It guides you home, it’s a beacon of hope, it lights the way in darkness, its light is so appealing and beautiful compared to the bleak, pressing darkness, and on top of it all- If you get too close too it, it’ll harm you, rather than help you. You can’t sail your boat too close to it, or your boat will crash and sink.

And all that, all that, is what Daisy is to Gatsby.

We need to go deeper!

I had to, I just did =P I couldn’t possibly resist xD …

ahem. So anyways, I could go deeper to take the light to represent Daisy’s house, not her. But that would also end up involving Tom, and the estate, and it’s location, in comparison to Gatsby’s. Meh, no, that’s TOO deep, and confusing, and not worth getting into. Imma leave it at my initial idea.

I wonder if that made any sense at all… Or if my opinion was totally off ^_^ I wanna ask my seniors who analyzed this book in Literature now, to see where my idea stands to the opinion of Khilji/KillJoy, the Scholar of Literature, and the Great-Grandmother of the Furies.

Literature IS all that. Lyrical Literature keeps you lively and dainty.

#EmphasisthroughAlliteration. Mhmm. It’s a thing. xD

Just a tad more Philosophy

Just a tad more Philosophy

I shall do what i shall do, and what i wanna do. so yeah =P heres a picture of something to be remembered, ladies! and men, too. since there are loads of people, from both genders, that just dont do this and even think about it. huh. well, lets change that one step at a time, now shall we? step one, share this picture or show it to other people too. Or, you could be lazy and just, you know, share this post…hahaha, just kidding, i dont care about the views as almost anyone knows =P ok, yeah, i need to type out another post and then i shall get to actually sleeping ^_^

^such true shit. This dude and his kid, Junior i believe…, freaked me out SO MUCH as a kid. and even when i was older and supposed to go ‘hah, lol’ at the violence and creepiness, i still was atleast disgusted by loads of their stuff. If not still scared. I admit to nothing.

Hey, i like art. thats no secret. But Cow-art? NO, art ON cows? thats new. and this is brilliant. i love it. its so random and still sooo pretty.

am1ap6r_700b (1)< grr, i wish it were bigger…just click on it, then zoom in by clicking on it again. i just tested and it works. fool-proof. no chances of getting your hair stuck in the ceiling fan whatsoever.

there was a comment at the bottom when i clicked on the picture on 9gag. it was funny-ish so i shall put it here. i have no idea who commented this though. oh well. But it went something like ‘so now all you need to be an artist is paint on cows. nice.’ haha. no, just me? ok.

dammit. the rest of the pictures are saved on the family laptop… -_____- so i guess ill just have to post them later. oooh weeeell.

and thats all, folks~!

i know, i havent rambled on this in AGES, but i dont feel like it right now. so i shall later, some other time, vagueness vagueness.

The Question to Life, the Universe and Everything Else

Everyone philosophical and thoughtful has pondered the meaning of Life, the Universe and Everything Else at atleast one point in their lives. Be it in the shower, just before drifting off to sleep, in their Physics/Math class…either way, it happens.

But i ask you, as the author to Hitchhiker’s Douglas Adams brought up to me, what exactly is the question as to you are finding the answer?

If there is no question that you are answering…what good is an answer to that? Even if the answer is BRILLIANT and makes total sense, it becomes like Math. You get it wonderfully for about five seconds before it stops making sense anymore. It confuses you. But no matter what kind of simple and making sense kind of answer you give or think up, it WONT make sense if it doesnt answer a question.

Afterall, an answer is made an answer only if it answers a question. So without a question, it is nothing. :O

so…whats the QUESTION to Life, the Universe, and Everything Else?

That’s what you should be thinking in your next shower. Good luck there. And if you come up with an answer (joke or not, serious or not, simple or complex) do let me know. id like to see what anyone’s guess on such a deep topic would be. We could even debate it through if i disagree, and who knows, you might convince me as to it being the real question of all time.

So let’s think up some intelligent questions before we get ahead of ourselves and start trying to make up answers to questions that havent even been asked yet. Lets not get overeffecient, now shall we?

A Quote on Fairy Tales

‘Fairy tales are more than true; But not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that they can be beaten.’
-Neil Gaiman

Now, isnt that just brilliant? i love it =3

but i just have one other question to ask.

So if i have a dragon, that makes my life a fairy tale..?

Sounds good to me ^_^

*poof*

im pretty satisfied with how much ive recorded here, and so glad i didnt give up on this blog, cuz at some point last year, after the summer break, i totally disappeared. im glad i picked up the ball again, otherwise i wouldve regretted it ^_^

my motto is to do what you wont regret, and never walk away from somthing if youre gonna regret it later. i hate regret. a most terrible emotion indeed =P

and and, i actually am surprised at how ive come across other blogs and people and ideas and perspectives and commplements by starting this blog..

(small shout out to mudkipsandrainbows.wordpress.com =) )

But seriously, i like my blog ^_^ and in honour of this anniversary and it being all summerifically wonderful im gonna change my theme to my initial/original artsy summery fun and colorful one =D

So to keeping this Internet Journal going, hope all keep reading =3 if i have any readers, that is (dont get ahead of yourself, wattson….)

To having fun, and bringing more, to recording the past and traveling to the future, to slaying Math the Dragon of Evil in my dreams, and to smiling and laughing whenever i read this craziness,

Just Add Some Sugar to that Mocha.
