Babel Fish

Posted in Miscellania with tags , , , , on March 31, 2019 by MONSTERMINIONS

This is so bizarre to me. Jung coined the term “synchronicity” or a meaningful coincidence. How it might be meaningful to me I have no idea. Here’s the story—

Last night I picked up a 4-pack of Nordic lingonberry sour ale from a local tasting room brew pub “Speciation”. The ale had a vaguely familiar whimsical fish on the label.

This morning I was flipping through random crap on the internet and the BABEL FISH pops up. It’s the same freakin’ thing on the beer label! Obviously, the folks at Speciation are fans of the “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy”, but I’m still weirded out about the coincidence.

Sorry to hear about the passing of legendary Oak Island treasure hunter Dan Blankenship. He was 95. Dan garnered respect in recent years from layperson and specialists for 50 years of hard work, conveyed on History Channel’s Curse of Oak Island. Even during this season’s series his mind seemed sharp. RIP Dan!

Man, these guys are dropping like flies. King Kong was one of the greats and a terrific presence and showman.

Pareidolia Effect

I took this shot of a seed pod coated with a thin veneer of ice. As I was editing the image I noticed a strange alien-looking face embedded under the ice. This is the so-called pareidolia effect. Or is it?
