Just found out that a friend passed away unexpectedly this morning. He was 36.
Funny business, this life thing.
Clips from the construction of the Jungle Cruise in Disneyland. From “Disneyland Goes to the World’s Fair” (1964). I love the crocodile surfing! More vintage Disney.

Chaos Theory is a very important area of mathematics which can explain a lot of what we see in the real world. A pendulum with one mass is relatively easy to explain mathematically, and it behaves nicely. However if you put another mass in there, it behaves chaotically. Technically, this means that if you change the starting positions only slightly, the state of the system a short time later can change drastically. The weather is chaotic- a small error in measuring it today could be the difference between rain and no rain in a weeks days time. Watch these two pendulum systems quickly diverge, though they both start off with nearly the same settings. [more] [code]
Love me some chaos theory.
