castiron: cartoony sketch of owl (Default)
1. Listen to Cabin Pressure episode in car en route to dentist.

2. While teeth are being cleaned, attempt to visualize 100 otters.

3. Ten asterisk-like figures of ten otters each works pretty well.

4. From this geometric figure, branch out to platonic solids with otter edges.

5. Ponder how to get otters to form a dodecahedron.

6. Decide that the only way to do this in practice is by using large acrylic tubes to contain the otters.

7. Remember that "if I should ever become so rich that blowing a few hundred K is nothing" plan to build an octopus Habitrail at ceiling level throughout the house. Wonder if otters and octopuses could coexist for more than ten minutes. Decide probably not. Also, much larger tubes would be needed, and presumably sea otters rather than river otters, and general upkeep would be too much even for theoretical level of filthy richness.

(At this point, the dental visit ended. No drugs were involved in this routine cleaning. No otters or octopuses were harmed, even hypothetically. Remember to floss your otter.)

On a complete tangent: 2011-11-02. Nice.
