Things 5: Maze, Look Around You, Cats

(Originally sent December 2007)

Special Christmas bumper edition! Kind of.

Next week’s film:
I’m going to see I Am Legend some time after Christmas. Mainly because I have a strange obsession with films about being the last man on earth. I think it might be a metaphorical way to deal with one’s own mortality.
Imdb rating:   7.7/10
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 62%


Prognosis:  It’s a big-budget last-man-on-earth film! And he has a dog! I don’t see how this can go wrong.

A Puzzle:
The image below is an incredibly elegant non-abelian maze. It should be pretty self-explanatory. (Click to view printable size).

Answer to last week’s puzzle:
Half way.

A Quote:
My favourite quote of this year is one I overheard on IRC:
[13:22] <ChocoJon> just being nice
[13:22] <ChocoJon> is there something wrong with that?
[13:22] <Norgg> Yes.
[13:22] <Norgg> Nice people killed my parents.

A Link:
I was trying to work out what would be the ultimate link for the Christmas bumper version of this thing, and then I realised it was probably my own meta-site, from where you can find all things that are cool according to me – comics art and videos I’ve made, photobucket with every image I’ve ever needed to share with someone on a forum, and my geocities site with everything I thought that the net needed to know in 1999.

A video:
Look Around You, episode 1: Maths. Episodes of this series are only about 9 minutes long. The first two at least are well worth seeing.

A picture:
For a Christmas bonanza of image fun, I’ve put together my 10 favourite cat-caption pictures from 2007, starting with the cat that inspired the most popular blog on wordpress, I Can Has Cheezburger. You can see them here.
