Q&A: How Would You Describe Color to Someone Who is Blind?

Friday, August 31st, 2007

I’ve seen a lot of blogs that have interesting sets of questions and answers lately. Maybe we can start something of our own. ^_^

Here’s the idea… Post a question and invite people who read your blog to answer the same question. People who answer the question posted in your blog are encouraged to post a reply, link, or send a track back to where the question originated.

So here’s the Q&A:

How would you describe color to someone who is blind?

Rukia’s Answer: I would probably use their other senses to describe color. Something like… “Red is a hot color, the same as when you feel the sun on your face…” or “Blue is a cold color, the same as when you drink a glass of ice cold water.”

To be totally honest, I can’t imagine a life without sight… To be enveloped in total darkness is extremely scary for me. :( I remember watching Oprah interview a soldier who lost his sight in battle. She asked him “can you still see when you sleep in your dreams?” There was total silence, and the teary-eyes soldier said, “yes…”

That really hit me hard… T_T

Alrighty guys, it’s your turn to answer this in your blogs! Let me know what you think! (~*3*)~ And if you have question you want me to answer, just email or leave a comment..! ^_^ Cheers~~

It’s Cosplay… Everywhere..!

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

There are blogs that amuse me in Sanriotown… Especially those that talk about the administrators. =3

Ok, technically, Nanao is not talking about the administrators themselves, but she is talking about Kuchiki Rukia… Sometimes… 3 times when you count it all… XDDD


Nanao’s Research has a vast collection of cosplays around the world. If you don’t know what a cosplay is, Nanao explains it here:

The term “cosplay” is a merge of 2 words: costume and role-play. As the word suggests, people wear costumes of their anime character of choice then role-play the character, including his/her mannerisms and attitudes.

Excerpt from: Nanao’s Recearch - Air: Tono Miyagi

She posts the best cosplays I’ve ever seen, writes a bit about the character who’s being cosplayed, and gives credits to whom she got the� pictures from..! And then you can find more cosplays..! =3 Hehehe~

Have a visit in Nanao’s Research… If you think cosplays are for nerds, geeks, and dorks, this might nake you change your mind… (~’.')~

The Secret of Levitation

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

Ever wonder what it would be like to levitate? I mean real levitation, not some magic trick.

Apparently, Scientists have found the secret of levitation. I read it up in Yahoo, and here’s what the article has to say… (I removed a few bits and pieces so that it won’t be so long to read.

LONDON (AFP) - Scientists have discovered a ground-breaking way of levitating ultra small objects, which may revolutionize the design of micro-machines, a new report says.

Physicists said they can create “incredible levitation effects” by manipulating so-called Casimir force, which normally causes objects to stick together by quantum force.

The phenomenon could be used to improve the performances of everyday devices ranging from car airbags to computer chips, say Professor Ulf Leonhardt and Dr Thomas Philbin from Saint Andrews University.

Casimir force — discovered in 1948 and first measured in 1997 — can be seen in a gecko’s ability to stick to a surface with just one toe.

Now the British scientists say they can reverse the Casimir force to cause an object to repel rather than attract another in a vacuum.

Leonhardt stressed that the practice is possible only for micro-objects.

But he underlined that, although in principle it may one day be possible to levitate humans, that day is a long way off.

“At the moment, in practice it is only going to be possible for micro-objects with the current technology, since this quantum force is small and acts only at short ranges,” he said.

Their research was to be published in the New Journal of Physics.

Wouldn’t it be great? One day, people will be able to levitate. Of course, the article says the technology is still a long way off, and it’s still only a “possibility”, but it’s still nice to dream that one day, you can “fly”. :)
