00528 Day 61, Drawdio

Today I walked down a well trodden path.

But before I walked down the path, I didn't realise it was there.

I mean, it was there, I just didn't see it.

I think I was looking up at the sky.

But when I looked around I saw that, not only was I walking along this very clearly defined path, it had clearly been made by people wearing big clown shoes.

Then I looked at myself. I WAS WEARING CLOWN SHOES TOO!

Not only that, when I got to what seemed to be the end of the path, there was lots of little paths leading off from it in all different directions and all of them lead to bright, colourful towns where everyone wore huge trousers and red noses and drove cars with square wheels.

I stopped for a minute to think about what to do next.

That was when I saw the sign.

And the sign said:


WARNING:

YOU HAVE ATTEMPTED TO CONVEY MEANING IN A METAPHOR, BUT YOU ARE ILL EQUIPPED TO DO SO, AND HAVE FAILED.

PLEASE RETURN TO THE REAL WORLD WHERE YOU WILL FIND A MORE CONCISE AND INFORMATIVE EXPLANATION AS TO WHAT YOU HAVE MADE TODAY




So I just went home and made a Drawdio in order to explore the relationship between electrical resistance and sound using pencil, paper and a few electronic components (most notably a 555 timer chip).





Drawdio gubbins


Go to the Drawdio site and make one NOW.


Afterwards I went to get a drink from the fridge and slipped on a banana peel.
