After a few weeks with this Hex backpack I realized that I needed to rethink the way I carry things again. And so I came across this post on furoshiki squares onCarryology:
Before diving in and beginning the experiment, I had to familiarize myself with the various furoshiki folding techniques that were out there. Naturally, I found myself on furoshiki.com/techniques/. There are plenty of other resources out there to learn these techniques which you can discover via a quick Google search, this is the one I went with. You may love this one, or love a different one. We even posted a great infographic up the last time we discussed furoshiki. It’s all totally up to you. Keep in mind, almost any fabric will work.
The most important thing is to research the different methods for folding/tying different shapes/weights/sizes of objects in their different carry methods/formats, that are best suited for the specific application that is presented at that moment. And then to remember them all. For example, different methods would be used to carry one honeydew melon than 1,000 kidney beans. It is important to understand that your brain now becomes your backpack, and your messenger bag, and your tote, and more. The fabric is just fabric, a vehicle for the carry.

It’s a brand new week, which means it’s about time for a new crazy photo meme from Japan. This time those crazy kids, inspired by a new anime series based on the manga Attack on Titan, are playing with the age-old trick of forced perspective and staging awesome photos in which one giant student is grabbing or about to devour their classmates.
The show seems to have captured the imagination of Japan’s youth. Since late April, photos of “Pretend Attack on Titan” (進撃の巨人ごっこ or Shingeki no Kyojin gokko) have been popping up online. Using perspective tricks, this photo trend usually depicts teens pretending to hold or even eat other kids. There are also photos of teens “attacking” giant classmates. Over the past few days, the number of pics has really begun to take off.”

So, with all of these fantastic photo memes to play with, when do these students have time for class?
