Triangle Puzzle

I'm sure that most of you have seen that infamous triangle puzzle, in which you must remove all but one of the pegs by jumping over the others. I've known the solution (or at least one of them) for quite a while, and, since I haven't posted in a while, I decided to make an animated GIF that shows how it's done. Here it is:

And there it is. Fairly easy to memorize, too.

Some of you may have noticed my reply to Matt's comment, in which I said:
"Right now, I'm working on improving my tennis skill level...

Just wait till you see how high I've gotten it..."

Well, now I get to show you. Take a look at this:

You read that right... 2200
My skill level is SO high, it's literally off the charts!

I thought that was pretty funny. Once you hit 1800, you go into the gray area, and after 2000, you completely come off the chart! lol

Unfortunately, I now only get around 10 points for a single game, and my opponents are level 2000 and 1900 (that's as high as they get). Oh well. It's worth it.

I'm going to get it up a little higher and then send the pics to Nintendo. :)

The Master Sword

Okay, so, a few days ago, Matt showed me this cool website with swords for a LOT cheaper then you could find anywhere else. So, I obviously checked it out when I got home, and I noticed this sword for only $26. I was stunned at such a low price, so I bought it. 3 days later, it arrived, and it is REALLY cool. As always, I had to take some pictures:

Pretty cool, no? It's going to look AWESOME in my room, right above all of my paper models. :)


I played Wii Sports the other day, and I decided that I should try to perfect my bowling. So, after a LOT of practice, I got to the point where most of the time I can get a strike. So I played with this for a while, but then, an amazing thing happened. By some stroke of luck, I was able to bowl a 257. I got 7 strikes in a row at the beginning, and another on the 9th frame. Here's a picture:

Needless to say, I was stunned, and I think that definitely, with a little more practice, I could get a perfect game.

For those of you that don't know what Blender is, let me explain it.

Blender is an open source (free) CGI program that is very awesome! I'm not going to go much into detail, because you can just go to their website to find out more.

Anyway, I've been doing that for about 2+ years now, and I feel like showing off some of my projects:

The Classic Impossible Triangle

Doodlesworth (Day)

Doodlesworth (Night)

Doodlesworth (Noon)

Cartoon-style Flowers

A Clock

A Plastic Cup

A Solar Eclipse

A Glass Monkey

Those are some of my best ones, but compared to the professionals, I've got a lot of work to do!

I just wanted to say, I've done a bit more work on Doodlesworth since I got those screenshots. It's looking quite nice now.

Paper Models

Well, some of you may already know this about me, but I love to do pepakura (that is, papercraft in English)

Here are some pictures of what I've done so far:

Dragon Illusion

This one is all over the internet (so I don't know where it originally came from) but you can find one here.

Arcade games

You can find these (and more) here.
I would have made more, but my shelf doesn't have that much space.

Nintendo models

Oh boy...
Yoshi, Mario, Kirby, Toad, Luigi, Panda Jimba, Mr. Saturn, Ness, Pikachu, Mario (64 version), Shy Guy, Boo, Goomba, Bowser, and Goron can ALL be found here.
Jack Sparrow's compass can be found here. (Ignore the CD ad.)
You can also find other models on that site, but I haven't done them yet.
Young Link, Zelda, and Majora's Mask (plus many more) can be found here.
Paper Mario was created by me, (as a gag, mostly,) and can be found here.

The Moon

Well, the old file can be found here, but it's missing a page, so if you want it you'll have to specifically ask Red Yoshi for the newest version.

Pretty cool, no? I love doing them. I have sometimes stayed up past midnight doing them because they're so addicting.

Sulfur Hexafluoride

I thought this was pretty cool. Apparently, there is this gas called "Sulfur Hexafluoride" (a.k.a. SF6). It's about 5 or 6 times denser than air, (meaning that you can float lightweight things in it,) it's invisible, (increasing the "cool" effect,) and it has some strange effects on your voice.

Here are some cool videos with Sulfur Hexafluoride.
I recommend "Invisible Water" and "The Tonight Show: Jay Leno and Josh Duhamel sniff some gas", but there are some other cool ones as well...

The Wikipedia article on it is also interesting.

Now I just want to know if there's a way I can buy some of this stuff...

Well, okay. Here it is. I know you all have been waiting to hear my wisdom (I jest) so I finally decided to make a blog. If, on occasion, I have some random thing to show you, I will put it here.


Most likely, if you've come to this blog, you know me personally, but if you were just randomly searching, I hope you find something here that makes you laugh. :)
