The creepy/cool spectrum

Cool: What fire looks like in zero gravity

Cool but makes my head sort of want to explode: Some infinities are bigger than others

Creepy but also still cool: A lyre made out of a human skull

Creepy and really, really not cool: Major fantasy/sf author Marion Zimmer Bradley (Mists of Avalon, etc.) allegedly abused her own daughter for years; see here and here. So disappointed and sad...*

*Edited for clarity, sorry for the ambiguity of original sentence

I know -- I have such love for her Mists of Avalon that I hardly know how to process this :(

Second the brain explosion with Infinity. I haven't had to think about that kind of logic since I graduated. I mean, it's an okay tool when working with limits, but if I try to think about the logic behind in any kind of depth my brain short-circuits -- the poor thing... Some problems I leave to people smarter than me :D

the math-- she is trying to confuse things. =) Infinity is equal to infinity. -sighs-

As for that writer..how awful.

Fire- very cool.

The fire is fucking awesome. And yeah, the infinities thing sort of rings a bell from the days I foolishly attempted to be a physicist.

That infinity video went way over my head. I'm definitely not a mathematician lol.

I have been engrossed in searching out articles about Marion Zimmer Bradley, and it's just disgusting and horrific.
