Typepad is the world's first quantum internet platform

The penny dropped the other day while I attempted for about the tenth time to upload a photo to a boj post.

Back came all manner of error messages, two of which appear above and below.


[FunFact: it took six FAILs before I was able to successfully upload the error message above.]

Nevertheless, I persisted, and the image finally made it.

This sort of thing happens all the time.

You may have noticed occasionally that images are broken on boj: they were fine when I uploaded them because I always confirm that's the case before publishing.

Yet somehow Typepad takes a perfectly fine image after I publish it and breaks it en route to its scheduled appearance in real time.

That means that I just can't post stuff and forget about, but rather I have to check on each and every post to make sure it's appeared on schedule and in the form I wanted it, sort of like having to make sure a kid's done their homework or washed their hands before dinner.

The quantum aspect is the echo of tunneling:


most particles hit a functional wall and bounce off yet occasionally one goes right through and appears on the other side even though classically that's impossible.

Cyclist Michael Guerra Unclips

Using his knowledge of physics and aerodynamics to gain a competitive advantage, cyclist Michael Guerra unclips from his pedals, lies down on the seat, and stretches out his legs to achieve ultimate aerodynamic efficiency.
Fair warning.

From The Prepared: "This is a review of an 857-hour documentary movie, which traces a piece of consumer electronics (a pedometer) backwards from Stockholm to Shenzhen. This is a 72-minute fan cut of the same film."

YouTube caption:

The Logistics Art Project is known as the longest film of all time, clocking in at 35 days and 17 hours in length).

The film itself is a reverse-chronological order, real-time recording of the journey of a pedometer from its point of sale in Stockholm back to the factory it was made at in China.

This version is a 72-minute edit of the footage which is taken from the project's website.

It was made to create a single edit of the 37 individual (roughly) 2-minute clips taken from each day of recording, in order to offer interested viewers a more standard movie length version.

The original footage is mute — however, a score has been added for this edit.

If you wish to watch the footage unaltered in that regard, you can mute the video.

Score: "Bull of Heaven — Our Light Is a Voice"
