フョードル・ドストエフスキー 

 「…人間を野蛮で獣的にするのはむしろ、長すぎる平和であって、戦争ではない。…」

アレクサンドル・ソルジェニーツィン 

  「いかなる戦争も解決にはならない。戦争は破滅だ。戦争が恐ろしいのは、火災や爆撃のためではなく、何よりも、自ら思考する者すべてを、愚鈍の必然的な暴力に追いやってしまうことだ…」

"外見的立憲主義法としての帝国憲法のもとで、その運用は、立憲政治の伸長期から全面崩壊まで大きくゆれ動いたが、この間を通して、注目すべきことは、憲法典そのものには、まったく手がふれられることがなかった、ということである。"

Incredible Vintage Animated Gifs

Nearly 155 years before the first animated gif appeared in 1887, Belgian physicist Joseph Plateau unveiled an invention called the phenakistoscope, a device that is largely considered to be the first mechanism for true animation. The simple gadget relied on the persistence of the vision principle to create the illusion of images in motion.

The phenakistoscope used a spinning disc attached vertically to a handle. Arrayed around the disc’s center were a series of drawings showing phases of the animation, and cut through it were a series of equally spaced radial slits. The user would spin the disc and look through the moving slits at the disc’s reflection in a mirror. The scanning of the slits across the reflected images kept them from simply blurring together, so that the user would see a rapid succession of images that appeared to be a single moving picture.

Though Plateau is credited with inventing the device, there were numerous other mathematicians and physicists who were working on similar ideas around the same time, and they too were building on the works of Greek mathematician Euclid and Sir Isaac Newton who had also identified the principles behind the phenakistoscope.

'Tron' designer creates a real-world superbike
Lotus has a new superbike called the C-01. Designed by Daniel Simon, whose work you’ll know from Tron: Legacy, Oblivion, and Captain America, the bike balances the Lotus form of old with a decidedly modern finish. Although Simon is better known for his concept work, and the C-01 certainly looks like a designer’s wild fantasy, the bike will actually go on sale: the British company plans to produce 100 in partnership with German manufacturer Kodewa. Previously, the two companies worked together on a number of auto-racing projects.
