Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.
If you want coherent awesomeness, back up to yesterday’s post and read what people who are capable of coherent awesomeness have to say.

like popping little gluey guys as they slide into a series of distillation beakers
(Yeah, I don’t know either—must be a physicist thing).
Or building Fantastic Contraptions.
In this game, you take wheels, rods, magnets, and other objects from the top of the screen . . .
to build a contraption in the blue workspace that will deliver the pink ball to the goal space . . .
Sometimes you can even keep your contraption from falling over.
