For those of you who enjoy (and I know you’re out there) the show Avatar, it’s back.AA The third season is probably about to be off the hook.


I’ve downloaded Avatar 1st Ep of the third season~~!!!
I think Avatar The Last Air bender is considered as anime too, right?

Ninja Math Disambiguation Page


I hope you enjoyed Design Tuesday yesterday, the day on which of course we feature design in many forms and formats. I know it’s quite general, but taking a look around our dojo it’s evident that us ninjas have a multifarious approach to blogging.

As an admin of this page, I just wanted to hip you to what some of us might be doing when we’re not blogging. Personally, I’ve been watching this anime called Bleach.

The plotline is simple. Soul reapers or shiginami are sent to help souls pass over from the land of the living to the dead. The soul reapers are spirits that wield samurai swords and come from a place called the soul society. The soul society’s function is twofold. Firstly, they help all souls pass over to the land of spirits, the soul society. Two, they kill spirits that have turned into ‘hollows.’ A hollow is what becomes of a spirit who lingers on earth too long before passing over. Anyways, this redheaded kid who can see spirits somehow gets tied up with this chick and becomes a substitute soul reaper. Thus begins a series of madcap adventures climaxing in a trip to the spirit world.

The manga series has been adapted into an animated television series, two OVAs, two animated feature films, a rock musical, numerous video games and a TCG (Trading Card Game). Compilation volumes of the manga have sold over 40 million copies in Japan, and have reached the top of manga sales charts in the United States. The manga received the Shogakukan Manga Award in 2005, and the anime has been nominated for several American Anime Awards.

This show is kinda ill because it’s a tight mix of humor and action. At times it’s totally silly and there are entire episodes that will have you laugh out loud or get one of those little sweat bubbles. Okay, I confess, I can’t actually say it’s ‘good’ per se, but it’s hella addictive. The best thing about it is you can watch all 116 or so episodes online (with a little bit of ninja math of course). Here’s a link to get you started. And here’s more if you really get serious with it. Pick your poison, subbed or dubbed.


I must say that I was warned against watching these by my homie DJ Dialect, and so I will pass along the same warning to you. By the honor of the ninja, don’t get into this, it will consume your soul.

1974 DUTCHER, Form of Power: Steam

The California State Assembly in November 1972, contracted with two companies to develop steam-engine vehicles. One company, Aerojet Liquid Rocket Company of Sacramento, installed a steam turbine engine in a lengthened Chevrolet Vega. The other company, Dutcher Industries, Inc. of San Diego, constructed their steam car from scratch. Its custom built fiberglass body housed a four-cylinder reciprocating engine that was fed by a steam generator built and designed by the Solar Division of the International Harvester Company. The Dutcher car was completed in 1974 and tested with fairly satisfactory results. Steam has not captured the interest of the public, however, and none of the experimental models have gone into production.

Reinventing the Shipping Container Part 3

bienvenido otra vez a "design tuesdays." i was talking with a lasted entrepreneur on a spiral gulf and learned that supply chains and shipping containers are not as simple as people like to describe them..we can’t transfer existing jobs/materials very effectively with the launch of an information war. and containerization is definitly an enabling-disrupter of the cost of shipping. these confirmations push me to believe that the internet protocol is as solid as that 2006 past hype.

we can arm up and brush off our toes, but the shipping container is the pharaoh of the boxes. rude to think and murder to speak - but we let the world fiction our garbage into recyclable trees. and thats kinda hard to do. so we now have designer packaging that the rest of the world has been throwing out for the first time in abundance- is Bob Villa the only dude on TV/internet that isn’t coming at shipping containers from a economic/metaphorical viewpoint?

shipping containers can help explain what could be called the "french fry effect."

one fry for us - one for you, two fries for you - one and one fries for us, three fries for you and one and one and one fries for us. given this assumption of how trade is working shipping containers become a lot more important in creating affordable housing for all. uniformity of these rubbish wrappers will allow global parties to trade their Yugo for a greened out Cadilac if ISBUs are considered a material for construction and not just a substitute to permit progressive design.
