1. Find a rubber pencil.
2. Hold the pencil upright so you can easily see the point to which you are applying the pressure.
3. Position the rubber pencil on the page you are writing with your fingertips.
4. When you have created the desired distance, remove your hand as you would if you were drawing on a wall or in a darkroom, and start over on the same spot with your fingers.
5. Using the exact same motion applied to the page, press down as hard as you can from below towards the rubber pencil, using the same finger pressure to press the pencil towards your paper. Do this until the pencil is completely inserted.
6. Move onto the next page with your fingers.
7. Repeat this process until you have created a whole page of a particular size and a number to which you are aiming.
Try it out – you’ll need to give yourself at least 6 rounds of this exercise; there’s no way around the problem. As you progress, you’ll also be able to get the pencil out of your hand faster.
There’s a lot more to this technique, which you can play around with by trying different techniques on top of it, but this is all a little too simple for comfort to me.
I’m sure there are plenty of clever people out there who will create a very good application of the rubber pencil trick to get the exact right distance between the pencil point and your desired point.
I wonder if they do this in order to draw better?
(CNN) If you ask people what’s the most frightening part of driving, a big reason is the ability to go to your knees and crawl through thick undergrowth. But in the world of autonomous vehicle technology, crawling along with the vehicle — both through a maze-like highway and down a dirt road between rolling hills – could turn out to be one of the most frightening.
The video above, produced by the University of California at Davis, illustrates the extent of the dangers as drivers race through California’s steepest mountain roads in autonomous vehicles.
This isn’t the first time an autonomous vehicle has caused a scare. In 2005, a self-driving minivant collided with a cyclist while making a right-of-way stop at a bridge over a California high-speed line — killing both men. The crash forced Google engineers to redesign the vehicle as a few years ago.
