Fuzzy Science!

Hello Folks! It’s me, Dr. Fuzzbrain, with today’s scientifical tip! If you ever look at your carpet, chances are you will wonder, how old is it? Elementary my dears! All you do is count the growth rings. There is one ring for every year of your carpet’s life! Of course, to do this you must first chop the carpet down, as I have just done. Look out below!

Next time just give him a paper towel tube, jpockele.

    *particularly enjoying the “fuzzy science” and the term “scientifical”.

    Related (?) one of my brothers refers to me as a Librariologist.
    I’ve always rather liked that.

    Carpet, or vortex?

  11. Fird Birfle says:

    Srsly, it puts me in mind of the whirlpool at the end of Moby Dick:

    I was then, but slowly, drawn towards the closing vortex….Round and round, then, and ever contracting towards the button-like black bubble at the axis of that slowly wheeling circle, like another Ixion I did revolve. Till gaining that vital centre, the black bubble upward burst…
