But why would you want The Sims 3 when you can have 3 dim sims?– Speaking to my sister.
Painfully shy, Dirac would never say anything, unless asked directly. And then...– Michio Kaku (From the book Physics of the Impossible) The man he’s talking about, Paul Dirac, is one of the greatest physicists of all time.
Ben: How much were the earrings?
Melanie: Five dollars.
Ben: What a rip off!
Ben: Are they real diamonds?
Ben: That's even worse!
Now that's interesting...
“There are more pixels in the RED 617 Mysterium Monstro sensor (261,352,000) than there are rods and cones in both your eyes (126,000,000 x 2 eyes = 252,000,000).” If I remember corectly, the Mysterium Monstro is the new 6K ‘brain’ for RED’s Epic and Scarlet cameras coming out in the near future. What’s more, as amazing as 6K resolution may be, (6K resolution...
Mum: I saw some nice menswear at Myer this morning. I think you should have a look.
Ben: Hey, can't you just take the stunt dummy I made and see if it fits?
Mum: I'd prefer to take the original dummy.
More Benae Randomness
Renae: Have you seen 13 ghosts?
Ben: Nope.. I've never even seen 1 ghost. ;)
Renae: haha It's a movie you idiot! About these people who live in a glass house and it closes in and blood and guts go everywhere!
Ben: Oh yeah, there's a show on the ABC called The Glass House.
Renae: Really? Is it about Marijuana?
Ben: ...What!? hahaha
Ben: I don't know how I'm going to buy Christmas presents when I can't stand shopping. I'll just find a stick in the backyard and put googly eyes on it.
Renae: haha I used to make presents all the time! Once I made a jet pack for my brother out of Coke bottles!
Ben & Renae: hahahahaha
Ben: [Spinning around in circles with a Christmas reef over his head] See look! I'm an optical illusion!
Melanie: Oh my God Ben!
Ben: What?? Geez, you're so immature, Mel.
The Night Before Christmas →
A neat little poem worth checking out.
Ben: Pfft, if Mel had money she'd waste it on Bratz dolls or something.
Mum: [sarcastically] Oh yeah, I'm sure she'd go straight out and buy a Bratz doll car.
Ben: What, you can get a Bratz doll car!?
Why would you buy a 50 cent pick when you can just use a $2 coin??
Quick stop motion test →
I experimented with animating a few cars earlier. This came after going through my oldest laptop today and recovering some ancient stop motion videos I’d made as a little kid. Might upload them tomorrow.

What an absolute shame..
The second death to hit close to home in less than a month. What makes it worse is that he was the exact sort of person I wish there were more of in the world! He was such an awesome, caring, funny, clever, well loved guy. And I can say that without a single shred of doubt, even though I only knew him for such a brief period of time. I wouldn’t have even met him if it wasn’t for the...
Ben: The only thing my Mum's worried about with me travelling is that I'm going to fall in love with some girl overseas and decide to live there.
Renae: Hmm, I could just imagine you falling in love with some girl from Turkey or something.
Ben: Yeah, or falling in love with an actual turkey.
Melanie: Come on, tell me what you want for Christmas!
Ben: Umm, I dunno, maybe some pool stuff?
Melanie: Cool stuff?
Ben: haha, No, 'pooool' stuff.
Melanie: Oh, what kind of pool stuff?
Ben: Cool pool stuff?
Ben: L#### isn't very discreet about it. He'll just go around asking everyone if they wanna' have sex with him.
Renae: Did he ask you?
It’s been a rather awesome weekend. :) Yesterday I spent the day at Renae’s, where we had fun doing whatever and laughing about the most random things. Many, many ‘tumblr moments’ between the two of us which, as usual, I can’t remember now. I even [sort of] learnt how to play the drunken sailor song on violin, thanks to Renae’s excelent teaching skills. ;) It...
Last night provided a plethora of tumblr-worthy moments. In fact, too many, it seems, to actually remember and post the next day (i.e. now). But for nothing more than our own benefit, I will say that Jarrad’s seemingly ordinary question “Do you have a facebook, Ben?” stole the funniest-moment-of-the-night cake. I laughed until my stomach hurt. Iain rolled around in tears on the...
The Internet is like alcohol in some sense. It accentuates what you would do...– Esther Dyson
One of the coolest Robot Chicken scenes ever. It’s like an animated version of the action sequences I was so fond of creating with my own toy cars as a kid. :D Also, I’ll point out that the length of the full episode is exactly 11:38. ;)
Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to...– Plato (via lickystickypicky)
