Challenging Squirrels

How to Squirrel-Proof your bird feeder, sort of.

I love Mark Rober’s videos and this was no exception. Mark designs and builds an amazing maze for squirrels to test how hard a squirrel will work to get some tasty walnuts. I have a whole new respect for squirrels.

If I knew engineering school would enable me to make this sort of mischief I would have been all in.

This is far more entertaining tham most TV shows. Trust me.

I love how Netflix offers suggestions for my movie queue. Whoever designed the algorithm is a genius. I’ve found so many good picks or they’ve found me. The latest is Between the Folds, a documentary on origami of all things.

As a Japonophile I knew that there’s more to origami than the frogs and birds kids learn to make. Between the Folds shows artists and even scientists who use origami and explore new possibilities with paper. At just 55 minutes, the film explores how and why these Westerners got into origami. Their creations were beautiful and the process is often mesmerizing.
