Pretty cool, and it made me remember a girl I met at a park once, she was doing something sort of similar to this except with Fall leaves. She would clear a spot then use handfuls of leaves to layout a pattern. The patterns she made were smaller and simple but it blew my 11yo mind. She was this sweet-natured teen that encouraged me to help her make art. Thanks for the memory-jog.

Geomentric patterns are nice, but played out. Do a portrait.  Write weird shiat in that Futurama language.

I used to live in Logan, and often went up Logan Canyon to Logan Cave. Such exciting names in Mormon country!

In block letters.

Weird, but cool.

Dude, you can't call them "artistics" anymore.  They're "on the spectrum" instead.

There's great and obviously human landscape art all over the world. Elvis mown into lawns, rice paddies turned into colourful masterpieces, giant human figures carved into white chalk hills, into the Australian desert, the Mona Lisa done in toast.

But some crop circles are real and not made by the Hippies that show up to worship Goddess in them. And some fuzzy dots are super-advanced space and time faring technology, and not birds or white plastic bags.

Personally if I were to admit that 99% of such sightings had human and mundance explanations, I would believe that 99% of the "unexplained" sightings (or sites) were also explicable, but unexplained purely for lack of imagination or accurate observation and investigation.

And 99% of the 1% of the 99% explained phenomena would also be mundane, natural, in no way miraculous or a violation of naturalistic explanations that don't need to run to anything more obscure than it's a bird, it's a plane, it's some dipstick in a Superman costume sky-diving.

I want to believe, but I am just not the uncritical and gullible. I always think of more than two explanations. Nothing is black and white. Nothing is entirely 1 or zero. The probability line is a barbell with two circles at each end to represent the factc that nothing is certain or impossible, nothing is 0% or 100%.

This

He was just doing a grid search looking for parts of his ship.  Alien grids are more complex than our squares & rectangles.

Really enjoying the show so far.

There is a long sequence about Logan at the beginning of a Heinlein book. (I want to say Number of the Beast) When I first read it as a teenager, it was cool seeing my hometown in print, but that whole part seemed long and pointless. Several pages vacillating between taking their flying car to Logan or Elko, NV (where I also lived for years).

A couple months ago, researching an article, I learned that Heinlein had some disagreement with USU campus in Logan, right before he wrote that book. USU had booked Heinlein to speak, and he had agreed to speak for free on the topic of blood and folks donated blood to get in; but Heinlein charged $3000 to speak about scifi. But USU had advertised it as a sci-fi lecture, but didn't have the budget, and USU could not legally require people to donate blood to attend. They ended up having to cancel.

So Heinlein wrote about a book about somebody from Logan, whose house gets blown up.

Napoleon Dynamite was filmed in that valley, as well (in the Idaho half). They still haven't gotten over all the excitement.

Now that I have said my serious stuff, let's top and imagine aliens with snow shoes and touques.

You can imagine yours in Russia or Alaska or whereever, but I will imagine mine are Canadians and wearing Hudson's Bay blanket coats as well. And very big silly Newfoundland fisherman glove-mittens. Those are mittens with one or two fingers like a glove. Brillliant idea, that.

Logan? I think that is one of my niece's boys.

She didn't know we were related to the Logan family when she named him, she just fancied the name. I got my first name the same way:  Mothergoose had to choose a new name because her first and second choices were stolen by a cousin and a friend with less imagination. That is what my Mother used to say, but the first choice was a very common name and the other one was spelled differently, so she may be wrong.

Lots of WASP types use family names as first or middle names. You can see many examples from the list of famous American serial killers or university Presidents, both classes of people who tend to have three WASP names. In my family we usually give two middle names. One from the Father's ancestors and one from the Mother's ancestors, grandparents and great grandparents mostly. Nobody seems to care about ancestors further back except when the family constantly uses the same name, like John Gallup or Henry Adams. Another exception is very famous ancestors like Flora MacDonald or Queen Elizabeths.

So Logan was a very apt choice.

I never know what to say. It is so hard to know what's PC.

I went up the Canyon and hiked up a hill (mountain?) once, but didn't know there was a cave.  If I'd known there was a cave, maybe I'd have explored it.  Who knows, might've been more interesting than the local girls.
