…Synchronicity needs your help?

Synchronicity

The Synchronicity Project is a simple yet beautiful idea to “Share the Time and Environment. Photos and Reports of the Globe at Glance.”

Created by Jun Tsuzuki, it’s supported by participants who find the project interesting, and is free to join if you fit that single criteria.

To participate, simply take a picture of where you are at and what you are up to, regardless of what that is, at a designated time.

The designated time is chosen by Jun, and has either a neat and euphonious look (Examp: 11:11:11 on 11/11) or a time during which a historical event took place (Examp: 9/11)

The designated time is also based on the GMT, so your specific time might not match up with the perfect time, but that’s actually the point. It’s supposed to be a portrait of the world at a single point in time, though not necessarily the “perfect” point in time.

If the project interests you, and you’d like to participate, then you’d better find a camera quick, because the next time is January 1st at 00:00:00 GMT (December 31st at 04:00:00PM on the West Coast, and 07:00:00PM on the East Coast if you’re in the US).

What will you be doing?

…Your smile isn’t perfect?

Jessica Simpson Smile

Think you have the perfect smile?

Apparently scientists have done a test or two, and come up with the following guidelines:

  1. Bright white should be avoided. The Whiteness of the teeth should match the whites of the eyes.
  2. A smile’s ideal width should be no less than half the width of the face.
  3. Both upper and lower lips should be symmetrical on each side of the mid-line of the face.
  4. The top row of teeth should be dominant while very little should be seen on the bottom row.
  5. All teeth on display should be straight with no visible signs of restoration work.
  6. The teeth should diminish in size from front to back. (Those either side of the central teeth, the laterals, should be 61.8 per cent the size of the bigger teeth. The next teeth along should be 61.8 per cent of the laterals. The width of the central teeth should be 80 per cent of their height.)
  7. Very little should be seen of the gums. (To avoid a horsey smile.)

…Perfect breasts have a formula?

Victoria Beckham and Caprice Bourret - BreastsIn what must have been one of the most difficult and most painstaking research projects of all time, a cosmetic surgeon spent hours studying photos of topless models to determine the perfect pair.

Apparently, his findings indicate that the perfect chest isn’t about size. Instead, it’s all about proportion.

“The ideal is a 45 to 55 percent proportion – that is the nipple sits not at the half-way mark down the breast, but at about 45 percent from the top.”

So who came out on top?

Lingerie model Caprice Bourret, who apparently has the best of the breast.

And the worst?

It’s a sad day for Victoria Beckham, who apparently has “unnaturally round” mounds.

Tough job indeed.

…Your bacon sandwich isn’t perfect?

Want to know a tasty math formula?

    Bacon SandwichN = C + {fb (cm) . fb (tc)} + fb (Ts) + fc . ta

    Where N=force in Newtons required to break the cooked bacon, fb=function of the bacon type, fc=function of the condiment/filling effect, Ts=serving temperature, tc=cooking time, ta=time or duration of application of condiment/filling, cm=cooking method, C=Newtons required to break uncooked bacon.


According to scientists at the Leeds University, if you can follow the above formula, you will have created the perfect bacon sandwich.

How do they know? They spent 1,000 hours testing 700 variations on the traditional bacon sandwich to discover that

    Two or three back bacon rashers should be cooked under a preheated oven grill for seven minutes at about 240C (475F).
    The bacon should then be placed between two slices of farmhouse bread, 1cm to 2cm thick.

Who knew science could be so delicious?
