bomomo Word Trivia | The Steve Laube Agency Fun Fridays – May 11, 2012 Word Trivia “Stewardesses” and “reverberated” are the two longest (and commonly used) words (12 letters each) that can be typed with only the left hand. “lollipop” is the longest word typed with your right hand. The only 15 letter word that can be spelled without repeating a letter is uncopyrightable. No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple. “Dreamt” is the only English word that ends in the letters “mt”. The sentence: “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” uses every letter of the alphabet. The words ‘racecar,’ ‘kayak’ and ‘level’ are the same whether they are read left to right or right to left (palindromes). There are only four words in the English language which end in “dous”: tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous. There are two words in the English language that have all five vowels in order: “abstemious” and “facetious.” A “jiffy” is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second.

The Animator Relativistic Baseball What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light? - Ellen McManis Let’s set aside the question of how we got the baseball moving that fast. The answer turns out to be “a lot of things”, and they all happen very quickly, and it doesn’t end well for the batter (or the pitcher). The ball is going so fast that everything else is practically stationary. The ideas of aerodynamics don’t apply here. These gamma rays and debris expand outward in a bubble centered on the pitcher’s mound. The constant fusion at the front of the ball pushes back on it, slowing it down, as if the ball were a rocket flying tail-first while firing its engines. After about 70 nanoseconds the ball arrives at home plate. When it reaches the batter, the center of the cloud is still moving at an appreciable fraction of the speed of light. Suppose you’re watching from a hilltop outside the city.

Online | Amazing Banksy painting costume MAKE contributing illustrator Tim Lillis sent me pics of his friend George Schnakenberg‘s Banksy painting costume, and I’m totally having costume envy over here. Hands down my favorite getup from this Halloween. Here’s a comparison pic of George’s costume versus the original Banksy “Flower Thrower” painting: He did an awesome job of painting his clothes to capture the shadows in the original stencil, and getting the flowers just right: Add a little white face paint, and he’s good to go! Goli Mohammadi I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Contact me at goli (at) makermedia (dot) com. Related
