The REDWOOD

A little blog of the REDWOOD, my beloved forest...
in which you will find what is mystery even to me :)
but mostly there is a little comedy behind a bush, fandoms growing like trees, art as birds in the wind, foodporn for hungry of these things and some sweet dreams behind doors on trees.

↳ Hypnos and Thanatos

Hypnos (Ὕπνος) and Thanatos (Θάνατος) are, respectively, the personifications of sleep and non-violent death; the twin sons of the goddess Nyx, they live in the Underworld, in a place where the rays of the sun and the moon will never touch. Out of the two, Hypnos is said to be the gentler one, although both are ruthless in their own right.

Irish Whiskey Marmalade
Ingredients:
3 lb Seville oranges
Juice of 2 large lemons
13 1/2 cups sugar, warmed (no that is not a typo, it says 13.5 cups)
1 1/4 cups Irish whiskey
Scrub the oranges with a nylon brush and pick off the disc at the stalk end. Cut the oranges in half and squeeze the juice, retaining the seeds. Quarter the peel, cut away and reserve away thick white pith (the stringy white stuff), and shred the peel (thickly or thin slivers, depending on how you like it).
Cut up the reserved pith roughly and tie it up with the pips in a square of muslin (cheesecloth) using a long piece of string. Tie the bag loosely so that water can circulate in the bag during cooking and will extract the pectin from the pith and pips. Hang the bag from the handle of the preserving pan. (If you’re using a large saucepan, put a skewer or wooden spoon across the top and hang the bag from that.)
Add the cut peel, strained juices, and 15 cups water to the pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, or until the peel is very tender (it will not soften further after the sugar is added).
Lift the bag of pith and pips and squeeze it out well between two plates over the pan to extract as much pectin as possible. Add the sugar to the pan and stir over a low heat until it is completely dissolved.
Bring to a boil, then boil hard for 15-20 minutes or until setting point is reached. To test this, put a spoonful of marmalade onto a cool saucer. Allow it to cool slightly, then push the surface with your finger. If a skin has formed, the setting point has been reached. If not, it needs to boil a little longer. Keep testing until the marmalade sets.
Skim, if necessary, and leave to cool for about 15 minutes, then stir to redistribute the peel. Divide the whiskey among 8 - 10 warmed, sterilized jars and swill it around. Using a small heatproof jug or pitcher, pour in the marmalade.
Cover and seal while still hot. Label when cold and store in a cool, dark place until required. The marmalade will keep well for at least 6 months. Refrigerate upon opening.
Makes 8 - 10 lbs of marmalade.

I took a couple of hours out of my day to be on a panel for Young Author’s Day, an event put on by the Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association. I was invited to join by John Lustig, who I feel very lucky to call my friend and mentor. We answered the usual questions about the writing process and how we broke into comics, but I was even more intrigued by the audience. Notice something about them?
Yeah. GIRLS. Very. Young. Girls.
So I asked THEM some questions. “How many of you read comics?”
All hands went up.
"How many of you want to make comics some day?"
Most of the hands went up.
Here’s where it really got interesting. “How many of you BUY comics?”
Only one hand raised. I asked her where she buys her comics. She said, “At the comic book store.”
"Do you have a comic book store you like going to?" I asked.
She hesitated. “It’s complicated.”
That’s 10 year-old speak for “I have to go there to get comics but the store makes me uncomfortable.” The rest of them read webcomics. None of them had heard of Comixology before, but they knew all about it by the time the panel was over. What comic would they like to see most? Minecraft. Only Steve needs to be a girl.
It was a fascinating experience, especially in the wake of this article detailing why girls in the 1980s (like me and one of the moms nodding eagerly in the audience) stopped buying comics for 20 years.
The future of comics is bright indeed.

This is absolutely wonderful.

This legitimately upsets me.

… Y’see, now, y’see, I’m looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.
So you might end up with more donuts.
But then I also think… Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?
Hrm.
HRM.

A round donut with radius R1 occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R1. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R2 and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R2, then the area of a round donut is πR12 - πr22. The area of a square donut would be then 4R12 - 4R22. This doesn’t say much, but in general and  throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R2 = R1/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15πR12/16 ≃ 2,94R12, square: 15R12/4 = 3,75R12). Now, assuming a large center hole (R2 = 3R1/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7πR12/16 ≃ 1,37R12, square: 7R12/4 = 1,75R12). This tells us that, approximately, we’ll have a 27% bigger donut if it’s square than if it’s round.
tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.
