The dumbest things fascinate me

Cups.

No, not the Common UNIX Printing System that no one can get working in order to print in Linux. That’s too frustrating to fascinate me.

I’m talking about cups. Tea cups, for example. The liquid receptacle.

It was maybe 5 years ago that I was carrying a drink from my basement fridge to my computer when it dawned on me – there’s so little between the contents of this can and the space around it. This tiny membrane of aluminum is all that it takes to enable this barely viscous liquid to float through the air.

Weird, eh?

About Brian Damage:

Who is Brian really?
I live in Toronto, Canada, and work for an IT firm. That's about as much real-world info I'm comfortable divulging here. What you read on my blog is the real Brian, but, for the sake of freedom of speech, I feel most comfortable leaving a gulf between my cyberspace and meatspace personae.

Who is Brian at work?
My ridiculous job title is "Marketing Specialist" since I wear so many hats at work. I'm a technical writer, a specialist in enterprise search technologies, an electronic forms designer, a newsletter author, system administrator... but I'm in the Marketing department so for the time being I'm stuck with this inauspicious title.
