New Housemate

01 Apr

My Weighted Companion Cube moved in last week. After showing it around town we took some photos together. Here, it’s debating whether or not to go sledding in the last snowfall of the year (fingers crossed!).

Sadly, in the end, it chickened out. We went to my office for a bit, and it decided to read while I was getting my work done. It seems to have a huge interest in momentum, heat, and mass transfer. For some reason, it keeps asking me about conservation of momentum.

I tried to explain the Cauchy momentum equation, but it’s been sooo long since I thought about that stuff. We did have a productive convo about the most efficient way to cool high-powered Disk Operating Systems running Genetic algorithms.

Later, I caught Weighted Companion Cube playing Portal.

I think it’s about to euthanize itself. This is so meta.

    I say this with nothing but love and respect… It might be time for you to go out and meet some girls.

    Alternatively, please find a way to work “cubicide” and “tuna” into a single post.

    I’ve been meaning to respond to this for the longest time – way swamped with my Master’s Degree stuff…

    but love the cube! 🙂

    Didn’t know they made anything like that, but definitely going on my list of things that A) I absolutely must own, but B) can’t justify spending the money on (i.e., my birthday list)!

    They initially released them sometime in 2007, but they sold out really fast. Luckily when they released this wave, a friend of mine gave me a heads up.

    I have a secret dream of owning a weighted companion cube ball pit.

    I don’t know where you got your WCC, but mine isn’t as active. None of this playing with snow thing or reading Welty or playing Portal for that matter. I wish it would help me write my MEng paper. Unfortunately it doesn’t have quite a good background in polymers….but it tries to be helpful. It doubles as my desk pillow.
