humour or delight

Proof-Text for Sleeping In Sunday Mornings

Ps 149:1 Praise the Lord.
Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.
2 Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
3 Let them praise his name with dancing
and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
4 For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he crowns the humble with victory.
5 Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
and sing for joy on their beds.

Flying over Mars

Jan Fröjdman’s wonderful video, based on high-resolution NASA photos … crank the vimeo HD setting up to 2K and watch it full-screen on the best screen you can find. Just try not to stop yourself signing up for that one-way trip.

As Moses wrote…

“As Moses wrote in his book on the Transfiguration….”

There should be some kind of law about what jobs people can go into that takes their names into account. (And surely his first two initials should be B.C., not A.D.)

Scribal Pressure

Just back from trip to Italy, and found this inscription in one museum.

inscriptionPoor guy. He’s trying really hard to stay in the margins and comes up with some great ways of raising the top of Ts to squeeze more letters in, but after about half way down, well… there’s just no way to stay inside the lines.

Augmented Reality and Pokémon Go

pokemonpI read on the Internet the other day that just as The Matrix made it so that people could understand virtual reality, the great gift of Pokémon Go is that you’ll never have to explain Augmented Reality again. Well maybe, but someone yesterday said “What’s Pokémon?”

But I do think it’s worth trying Pokémon Go for a few days (don’t sign up via gmail, or at least not with your regular gmail account) just to experience augmented reality for yourself. I mean how unusual is it to be walking around, knowing that there are valuable things and dangerous things around you — realities that most people just can’t see. …oh wait…
