Sometimes I think things….

Random thoughts on gravity

From “Thunderbolts of the Gods”(

– If things like the sun are simply confluences of forces acting on each other, then gravity seems like it would be a natural product/effect from things being pushed together.
– Like a breeze as something goes by you fast.
– Or the vacuum left when something is suddenly moved away

So, if gravity is the after effect of a force moving past you, then anti-gravity would be the creation of an opposing force, or at least a force moving in the opposite direction faster/stronger than the one you are currently experiencing.

This would mean that creating such a force in any direction would be the way to control “gravity”.

Since f=ma, m=f/a, a=f/m.  If there is no force, there is no mass or acceleration.  If the “empty space” is just energy (potential?) Without anything acting upon it, all that is needed it one of the three parts to the equation, then results will happen.

Frequency is mentioned a lot in electrical experiments.  Vibrations are mentioned in both science and spiritualism.  I think a rightly applied frequency to an electrical current will evoke a response from this “empty space”.  Maybe this is what is really “dark matter”?

Oh the things you find randomly…

So recently I’ve been playing with Sugru (see here for details) and wanted to check something on their site.  I mis-typed it and found a pretty funny page.

My Unusual Genetically-Related Uncle

My UGRU Matt, wearing his incognito clothesThis is the story of my UGRU Matt, who is:

Unusual (to say the least!)
Genetically-Related (a blood relatve)
Uncle (mine, my dad’s brother)

Now, if you want to use this website domain for some other purpose, I’m certainly open to suggestions. For a reasonable sum it can be yours! Just send your proposal to

My UGRU Matt is quite a character. He is about 8 ft. tall (that’s less than 3 meters, but not that much less). Matt, who I will henceforth refer to as UGRU, is a mystery flyer for commercial airlines. He flies incognito and evaluates the flight attendants and cabins of the airlines that he flies.

Matt is Usually Genial and Rarely Unhappy.

Of course, since UGRU is so tall, his presence is hardly a mystery to the airline staff. They all know him, and greet him when they see him. “Hey, Matt, good to see you! Are you mystery flying with us today?”

UGRU always acknowledges that he is working as a mystery flyer. So, the airline staff are on their best behavior when he is aboard. He writes a glowing report, he gets paid, the staff keep their jobs, and everyone is happy.
Money that my UGRU receives for each mystery flight
This is the normal amount of money that UGRU Matt gets paid for every flight that he takes. He accepts cash only.

Random post – Feb

I like to take pictures of things I see here.  Easy to do with the plethora of technology available to everyone.  And since no one picture is an entire post to itself, allow me to share this month’s group of pics.

First, winter sucks.

Moped in snow

It doesn’t master where you are in the world, of you get snowed in, it is a bad day. After hearing how bad North America just got hit recently, I don’t feel so bad being here.  Still, -20 weather (even for a day or two) sucks.

What happens when you move and there doesn’t seem to be a mail forwarding system here?

Stuffed Box

Korea has one of the best and cheapest mailing systems I have ever experienced.  It is simply ridiculously cheap and fast to mail things around this country.  Heck, I’m not sure how they do it but even sending from here back to Canada is pretty damn quick.  Still, there are times where someone moves out, or maybe just plainly ignores his mailbox, and you get the above picture as a result.  I wonder what happens when you simply can’t physically fit any more into that little box?


It is always an adventure

I feel a little sad for those English teachers who come here and do nothing but work, drink, party, work. They are missing out on soooo much adventure. I don’t mean just the typical cultural things, such as temples or Festivals. I’m talking every day things that you see and would normally ignore in your own country but here it stands outs and impossible to ignore.

Like the Crazy Religious Guy.

I spent an hour in McDonald’s just observing this guy making his collage of articles and notes on each page. It was something I can’t really explain how I felt. I was like in some sort of alternate universe while I was eating my fries beside this guy. I tweeted everything he was doing and created a blog entry on it. I felt like I was witnessing something and compelled to stay less this experience be lost. Still, part of the adventure that I am sure the vast majority of Waygook‘s will miss out.

Up next is WTF Art:

Maybe I am no true artist because I just don’t get this type of art. While I am amused that they have such a thing in the Hongdae Trick Art Museum, I really have to question the reason for this to be here, let alone the person who made this. I was disappointed by not being able to get my camera ready quick enough when a couple let their little girl (and by little, I mean 3 years old) walk up to the statue and stick her finger ‘where the sun don’t shine’.

Ever seen an Inflatable wall? Well you can’t say that any more!

Korea has some interesting ideas on construction safety. Not only is there already a giant metal wall surrounding this site, but they felt the need to add in the wall from a jumping room.

Speaking of safety, check this guy out:

At first glance you just see a guy(barely) doing some exterior maintenance or window cleaning(he’s right above the tree). Until you look a bit closer..

The guy is basically sitting on a swing! Don’t see any safety harness there, do you?

But don’t scream, you’ll wake the Subway Troll!

I don’t even know how to begin to describe this. I’ll just leave this here and not say a word.

So, if any of you have text-character bodies, this plastic surgery place is the spot for you!

I think I would prefer real life examples.

Even PedoBear gets a Brazillian!

Itaewon is the place where you can get A-N-Y-T-H-I–N-G. Don’t worry, I’m staying Au-natural.

Korea is a place where you will see all kinds of fashion. I don’t really know what to make of this jacket but I just had to stop the guy and get a picture. I’m sure he just thought I was some crazy Waygook tourist and complied.

I can’t wait to see what the spring/summer will bring me this year for adventure!
