Woodpile Bunny

Maximum surface area to radiate disdain.

Thanks, Sonya!

Wow! I don't know what I am apologising for...I just think that I had better and quickly.

.... Woodpile means it!!!

Is Woodpile his name or is this a wild bunny cousin who lives in somebody's woodpile? Either way, I am certain the blast radius of that disapproval bomb is going to reach me no matter where I hide!

It's the forest equivalent of the puffer fish!

I love a good surface area to volume ratio joke! Bunnies+science makes a great combo.

(waiting for one of Fleetie's amazing physics/math equations that expands on haley's comment. They are always hilarious.)

Fleetie said...

Well, in the case of a sphere, as I'm sure Haley knows, volume V=4/3.pi.r^3 and surface area A=4pi.r^2, so that the ratio V/A=r/3, which makes sense, since the volume is the integral of the surface area, with respect to r. (Or alternatively, A/V=3/r)

Now while it is true that Woodpile Bunny is doing a commendable job of emulating a sphere, other factors should be taken into account to get a more accurate estimate of bunneh volume to bunneh area.

For example, the cute bunny head and ears and legs and tail cause deviation from a true sphere.

More interestingly, there is the fluffy nature of Woodpile Bunny's coat. This fluffy disapprover does not have a hard surface like a sphere, but a rather ill-defined edge because of the millions of tiny bunny hairs.

Clearly this means that WB's surface area is going to be enormous, so that surface area / volume becomes near infinite, so that for unit (Disapproval per surface area) the Disapproval Density also approaches infinity, so that Woodpile Bunny approaches being a Disapproval Singularity, with all of the concomitant implications about the safety of space-time in WB's vicinity.

If a stoopid hoomin were to do anything to cause Woodpile Bunny sufficient ire, and puff up that fur any further, there is a very real danger that Woodpile Bunny could turn into a Disapproval Hole, and anything succumbing to the intense Rabbitational Pull and crossing the Contempt Horizon would never escape - not even Approval itself!

DO NOT BE STOOPID AROUND WOODPILE BUNNY!

Of course Fleetie, all of that extra surface area just means that disaproval can be delivered with maximum efficiency!

haley said...

haha the Contempt Horizon! That should be a movie.

I've only posted once or twice, but I'm a daily visitor and love all your comments. Starting with the incredible Poe creativity, this week has been priceless.
But, Fleetie, you have made me emerge from lurking mode--
That was sheer brilliance!
"Disapproval singularity"
"Rabbitational Pull"
"Contempt Horizon"
Well done, I say...well done indeed ::applause::

Gales of laughter over here! Fleetie's comment will go down in DR history as a CLASSIC !! "Rabbitational Pull"....priceless!!

Fleetie said...

Gosh, thanks!
