Did I forget about this post until the last minute? Yes. Was I purposely procrastinating? No. I’m just really busy.
Happy 100th birthday to Claude Shannon! Don’t you love that it’s 100? So nice and neat.
Okay so apparently I was not aware but the Raven King was published three days ago. However, I haven’t gotten the book to arrive yet. Still waiting, library. Still waiting. Have you ever seen Maggie Stiefvater’s tumblr? It’s a work of art. And the library has not yet bought copies of Crooked Kingdom. Unfair.
More reason to love the 100: binary only has 1’s and 0’s. 100 is binary for 4. For all we know, Claude Shannon is actually four.
This makes no sense.
Anyways, I’d die for that animation. It’s so perfectly looped. I am in love.
If you ever want to waste hours and hours of time, google perfectly looped animated gifs. But make sure your Internet isn’t slow like mine because that’s frustrating.
Okay, call me stupid, but I just realized the reason he’s throwing around a 1 and two 0’s is because it’s 100. Shannon’s 100th birthday.
I thought it was just more binary stuff. In that case, four.
