🤯 Dustin Yellin creates famous artworks like his Psychogeographies. I recommend listening to this interview with him. The really interesting life of a somewhat crazy guy. He spent the money his mother awarded him because he stayed clear of drugs in his youth, ahem, on … drugs. Especially his story about his mental breakdown in New York is just crazy.
😷 If you had worn no face mask in Disney Land, the camera system would have added a mask on the final image. They did this to incentivize people not to take their maks off. You will wear a mask anyway in the resulting picture. Reddit thread.
The coastline paradox is the counterintuitive observation that the coastline of a landmass does not have a well-defined length. Since a landmass has features at all scales, from hundreds of kilometers in size to tiny fractions of a millimeter and below, there is no obvious size of the smallest feature that should be taken into consideration when measuring, and hence no single well-defined perimeter to the landmass. The smaller the features are that were taken into account the accuracy does not increase, but the measurement only increases in length; There is no way to obtain a maximum value for the length of the coastline. In three-dimensional space, the coastline paradox is readily extended to the concept of fractal surfaces whereby the area of a surface varies, depending on the measurement resolution. Wikipedia
