To Aru Majutsu no Index ep. 05 & Perfect Memory

November 4, 2008

Well, after five episodes, Touma finally figured out that there’s no way Index’s brain would explode (or implode?) because she has too much stuff memorized. I admit that I didn’t think anything about Index having too much information, but that was only because this is anime.

So after watching this episode, I started wondering how much information the brain could hold. From my high school days, I learned that we only use about 10% of our brains and that geniuses still only use a maximum of 15%, but this information was for processing power rather than information storage. A search on google for brain capacity turned up results ranging from 100MB (~10^8 bytes) to 10^8432 (that’s a 1 followed by 8432 zeroes). With such a wide range of predictions, it’s obvious that no one knows how much information the brain can hold. (more…)

Penguin Musume Heart ep. 15 & Code Geass Ending

September 28, 2008

Well, I just finished watching ep 15 of Penguin Musume. This episode involved Etorofu hijacking the Nankyoku time machine and going back in time to get rid of an embarrasing event. Of course, with any show that involves time travel there are unwanted consequences. At the end of the episode it appears that Pen-chan (Sakura) is no longer the main character and the anime is now called Shirokuma-ojousama Heart. I guess this is how Shirokuma gets her fortune/company back after going into bankruptcy.

So, after watching this ep, I started to wonder what I would do if I could go back in time to change something. If someone gave me a time machine right now, I would travel back a few years and tell the producers of Code Geass R2 to change the ending ^.^

Misdialed Calls

September 17, 2008

I don’t know if it’s just me or if this happens to other people, but for some reason I tend to get a lot of calls from strangers who have misdialed a phone number. This year I’ve gotten calls from people looking for Tom, Daniel, Rob, Ben, John (x3), Ryan, and their mom. The call looking for their mom was understandable since it was just a kid, but people should really learn how to punch in some numbers on a phone. (more…)

Morning Jogging

September 10, 2008

Wow, it’s been nearly a week since I made my last post. Classes started last week so my life has been pretty hectic getting school supplies, lining up for textbooks, and figuring out what my professors are talking about. One of the good things about being back in school now is that not all of my days begin at 8am. That leaves a couple hours in the morning to go for a jog, and with fall just starting, the weather is nice and cool so you don’t get too sweaty and it’s not so cold that you start shivering.

Train Station Girls

September 2, 2008

I’ve been taking the train a lot recently (several months now), and as such I see a lot of people. During all this time I’ve seen pretty much all the types of people you would expect at a station, such as: the young intellectual reading his/her book (usually on learning a new language), the teenager with their ipod turned up so loud that everyone can hear, the guy with the headphones dancing near the edge of the platform, the cute girl sitting on the bench, the businessman standing and looking at his watch every few seconds, the single mom trying to keep her children under control, the drunk that trips over his own feet, the couple smooching in the corner, and of course all the regular people just sitting/standing around.
