So I was at a thrift store and I see this little cat lamp.
I was like “Aye yo, no homo, but ya’ll are fuckin’ adorable.”
So I bought the lil’ guy and took him home to plug him in.
Then I was like “No.”

you have a fundamental misunderstanding of how math works
This came up on my facebook feed just now. I thought it was appropriate.
Neil Harbisson is the first person on the planet to have a passport photo that shows his cyborg nature — in his UK passport, he’s wearing a head-mounted device called an eyeborg. The color-blind artist says the eyeborg allows him to see color, and he wants to help other cyborgs like himself gain more rights.
Harbisson was born with a condition called achromatopsia, which means he sees everythingin shades of gray. It’s kind of like watching the world go by on a black-and-white monitor when everybody else has full color HD screens. He’s missing out on safety cues like the color of traffic lights, but more importantly he felt like he was missing an aesthetic sense of his environment. As an artist, he’s acutely aware of how aesthetics affect people’s moods and behavior — and so, nearly a decade ago, he set out to augment himself to see what other people see.
The result is that he sees in a way that nobody has seen before. His eyeborg attachment converts colors around him into soundwaves, which are transmitted to his inner ear via a vibration mechanism on the back of his skull. Essentially, Harbisson hears and feels colors:
"Each colour has a specific frequency that I can hear because of the Eyeborg. Infrared is the lowest sound and ultraviolet is the highest sound. I hear them through bone conduction. Basically, the sound goes to the back of the head and then my inner ear hears the different sine waves."
You need to watch his TED Talk:http://www.ted.com/talks/neil_harbisson_i_listen_to_color.html
"I make flowers out of napkins. No tape, no glue, no wire. It’s just a hobby that has turned into a business." He told me all about his business World Paper Flowers and how he uses Japanese Ikebana techniques in his flower making. "Oh I love them. What’s your name?"
"World. Arnold World."
"Oh, wow, I thought your business name was just referring to the fact that you’ve been all over."
"Nope. You know, only 2% of black slaves that were brought to America kept their names? I am in that 2%. I’m a 9th generation World."
