Fractal thongs are a biohazard

At least, somehow “G-string/thong” and “biohazard warning sign” crossed my mind when I looked at the fractal title of the latest edition (1/08) of the magazine Spektrum der Wissenschaft (German edition of Scientific American)…:

SdW 01/2008 title

The magazine itself – which I’ve been reading for many years now – is, of course, more serious and respectable and much less crazy than my thoughts sometimes are. And more worth reading. ;)


Help, the monster is loose!

Aaaahh! A few days ago, it appeared for the first time, this *gulp* horrid monster with its glowing eyes and the *shiver* terrible mouth! And almost every evening it briefly looks around. It will surely catch me on Halloween! *shriek*

(Okay, that could be fraud. So: don’t use that, or instead sell it honestly :angel: – people who’d spend lots of money on such things either have a useless oddity museum or are nuts. And you don’t have to rip them off in addition to that.) :devil:

ComputerWorld. Review has 7 pictures (no, they just stole the pictures) From Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories who have more pictures and descriptions of their device.


Update: For believers in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, they also made the matching toast (and offered it on eBay for the fun of it – sold for $26.99):

Why phryganeidolia? According to the Altavista translator, toast means “φρυγανιά” (phryganiá) in Greek, and “eidolon” = image, as in “pareidolia”, so you could call the result by that name…
