S is for… SANS ENNUI

Day 19 of the April 2013 AtoZ Challenge… enjoy…

I may have forgotten to mention my theme – it is fractals, fractal art, everything fractal up to and including my new book Fractal Dreams! Have a look around my pages and such to see lots more fractals. Also, every Friday I post a FridayFractalFeature (fff, for short) for all to enjoy! Thanks for stopping by and engaging in the A to Z 2013 Challenge! This is my FIRST ever, so I’m pretty excited! So every day I will post a fractal whose title starts with the letter of the day… and perhaps other things fractal related.

B is for….
Buddhakat – why, that’s me, of course. Or, more specifically our family name, the Buddhakats. Our family currently consists of myself – the fractal artist, of the genus felinus humanus (Janet, head cat), Mama – all gray long hair (meow – mother to Mimi) and Mimi, all black short hair (meow – daughter to Mama). They used to be Michelle (Mama) and Miriam (Mimi), but when they moved in they wanted to change their names. So we did. They seem to like their new names just fine!
Book – as in my new book FRACTAL DREAMS currently available at RedmundPro
Benoit – as in Benoit B Mandelbrot, the mathematician for developing a “theory of roughness” in nature. He also coined the word “fractal” and wrote the defining book on the science of fractals, Fractals: Form, Chance and Dimension in 1975. It was translated to English shortly after that.

the fractal for B is: Behind Bars

The world’s a frustrating place sometimes, made all the more frustrating by the fact that so many of the annoyances we deal with every day don’t have to be that way. We’ve talked before about scientific reasons behind everyday nuisances, and that’s all well and good. But what happens when the unthinkable happens, and science fails us? What happens when the world is Complete Bullshit, and the only reason for it is human stupidity and selfishness?

Why, Cracked makes a list of it, of course! Below we’ve documented six everyday annoyances that exist for wholly legitimate yet completely infuriating business reasons.

#6. Wrap Rage
Here’s an example of clamshell packaging: You hate it. Everyone hates it. It’s impossible to open by hand, and even with a pair of scissors, massive, hand-shredding chunks of plastic are left sticking out of it at odd angles. It’s the war crime of product packaging, and there’s even a term used to describe the frustration lightbulb wrapped - 173723people experience when opening it: Wrap Rage.

So why, you shout, shaking your bleeding hands at the sky, would anyone in the world design packaging that’s impossible to open?

The Reason: Package Pilferage

To make it impossible to open.
