    I've been working with the Vippu tutorials and I just had an epiphany. These boring boxes connected to spheres I've been drawing for the last week are actually the human body. This shouldn't be as surprising to me as it actually is, I know. But there is a difference between logically knowing something and comprehending something. I just flipped back to stare at the last eight pages of my composition book realizing the angles and such are actually better uses of perspective and volume than anything I've deliberately drawing.

    Felt the need to share, as you all are the reason I've got this far. :)

    My condolences as well, Mars. :(


    Also, gratz to DDV!

    Also, can somebody who is more up on nuclear power technology/has been reading more detailed news sources explain to me if that plant in Japan has some terribly out-of-date/not to code failsafe devices, or what?

    I appreciate that (at least, according to what I've heard so far), that it apparently does have safety measures preventing a massive, Chernobyl-type situation... but beyond that, you'd think the engineers would really try to sell their bosses on the PR benefits of taking very solid measures to make sure the buildings around the reactors don't suddenly explode in a dramatic fashion.

    Apparently the plants are not as modern as they could be- the newest designs wouldn't even suffer what they're going through right now.

    And one of the issues, allegedly, is the result of a rookie mistake. As far as I know things are iffy, but being handled well now and they shouldn't see any more issues.

    Granted every 20 min someone says "SHIT JUST GOT WORSE" and 4 min later someone replies "actually no, it didn't" so who really knows.

    Here's the thing (and this is just my weak understanding of nuclear reactors at work along with the piecemeal information I have):

    1. The coolant system for the reactor is destroyed. Like, it's fucked.

    2. Nuclear reactors require cooling even when they're shut down. I think this is called "freefall," (also known as decay). This is why the Japanese engineers have jury-rigged a system where they're using ocean water to cool it. From what I've heard, they are losing ground.

    3. Basically, if their system fails or they can't think of a new one to compensate, that reactor will melt down regardless of whether they shut it off or not. In short, they are still waaay in the bowels of the woods, here.

    But that's just my understanding. I know fuck all about this.

    Even if the reactor "melts down" the set up they have there won't be anything nearly as bad as chernobyl due to their containment systems and other things they apparently have.

    So was the design of the cooling system inherently flawed to begin with, or is it a case of it falling down/not being properly maintained, or is it a freak accident where like the 25 (or whatever) things they put in there to make sure nothing bad happened all failed at once?

    I suppose I could be more informed on this if I didn't get all my news pretty much exclusively from the BBC website, but I suspect I'd somehow wind up even less informed than I am now if I tried to pick up these details by wading through the cesspool that is TV news.

    No, but they're still fucked enough already. They don't need radioactive floodwater.

    Well, part of the issue is the 9.0 earth quake and tsunami- they made the usual cooling systems fail and, if that isn't "freak" occurance, i don't really know what else would be.

    I guess I just sort of assumed that nuclear safety engineers were a little more like the guys at the Pentagon who spend all day coming up with a military response plan for if Nicaragua decided to use a swarm of mercenaries in hot air balloons to try and annex Disneyworld, in that they have to have a plan (read: failsafe) ready to go for every possible scenario, regardless of how unlikely it may be.

    The reactors supposedly won't get to lethal levels of radiation beyond a mile or two around the facility even if they go into meltdown (with the majority of radiation decaying within a month). Not really good news, but better than it could be. The containment units seems to be working fine still despite the coolant failing.

    Just last week I was talking to this press lady who said that she can’t print my design because her flat press can only manage up to 10.5”, not 11”, but that she can crop 0.5” worth.

    I said no, nothing can be cropped. I suggested scaling it down proportionally, she said… “Yeah, we crop it down to 10.5”, that’s what I’m saying.” I explained to her that cropping and scaling are NOT the same thing. She said she understood.

    This week I got her prints. Guess what she did. She CROPPED 0.5”. I was so angry.

    True Conversation Between my Copywriter and my Coworker

    CopyWriter - “What is oil? Is it that black stuff that comes out of the ground?”
    Co Worker - “Yup”
    CopyWriter - “So who makes it?”
    Co Worker – “Nobody, it takes millions of years for the earth to turn something into oil”
    Copy Writer – “So what will they do when it runs out?”
    Co Worker – “Nothing can be done, this is why alternate renewable fuels is such an important topic”
    Copy Writer – “Oh, wow… do people know about this?”

    5 Minutes later, my co-worker is reading the news paper and says “Huh, look at this. The earthquake in Japan was so strong that affected the rotation of the Earth”

    She replies with “What is rotation?”

    I am shocked at the level of ignorance of this human being. I am without words to describe how frustrating it is to have this black hole of knowledge work with me on every single project.
