Nothing is Arbitrary

December 19, 2008

Well, if somebody made a decision about something, they necessarily had to chose between options. The act of choosing itself depicts an understanding. If you were truly deadlocked, you could not act.

Music Theoried

December 16, 2008


At some point, some dude came along and determined that a certain frequency of sound would be known as an “A”. This was a completely arbitrary decision of course, there are an infinite amount of tones possible- also for whatever reason it was decided that there were 12 other such “notes” out there.

Basically, to preserve, you either cook the shit out of something or hit it with radiation, and then immediately throw it into a perfectly sealed container. If there is absolutely no bacteria in the packaged food, then there is no possibility of bacteria growing and making people sick.

I started thinking, I’ll bet there are further applications for a devise that reliably wipes out all living organisms within a certain space. (more…)

Food Supply

October 22, 2008


In the old days John raised cows, Joe grew wheat and Jennifer fished: individuals produced food and traded it.

Our supply of food has been whittled down to fewer and fewer sources. The grocery stores have amalgamated into 2-3 giant companies. Farms have been sewn together to form massive food machines. Even the struggling independent variety store owner is forced to get many of his supplies from costco and walmart. Naturally big (more…)
