A phrase oft-uttered, in anything from a restrained growl to an infuriated scream, by my partner.
Who works with those strange computery things, and the networks connecting them, every day.
A phrase he uttered once again today, while we were chatting through some of our other favourite science related phrases*.
Which led us to a wonderful idea! We think the phrase it’s not computer magic, it’s computer science (add any emphasis of your choosing) is ripe for some sort of drawing/photoshopping/image/typography mashup competition thing. Yes, we could make something, but we bet that all of you could make this at least a trillion times better if you did it, too :P
So, go for it! Prizes? Erm, we will be most amuse. The picture will, no doubt, do the rounds. Hell, we can probably do a ‘favourites’ roundup or some such thing.
And how knows?! Maybe it will do the rounds on the hoodie/tshirt set. In fact, if it’s awesome enough? We’ll have a hoodie/tshirt printed FOR THE WINNER (judged by us, possibly, or by general vote), featuring THEIR DESIGN.
Have a read of the article which started the entire thing today — this remarkable one about the Ike Jime method of processing raw fish (for sushi etc), and the scientific basis (possibly) behind it.
* Which contain profanity, so they’re available in the original post of this, but not here on Sciblogs :)
