I am sooooo in the wrong line of work. These folks spent a serious amount of money to make some umbrellas operate robotically in time to “Singin’ in the Rain”. Now, stop laughing, I’m serious. Here – there’s even video of this dubious event for you skeptics.
First off, isn’t the whole umbrella/Singin’ In the Rain thing more than just a little cliche? Secondly, how do I get a job doing this stuff? I’m stuck doing stastical reports and building graphs of crap. Well, it’s not really crap, but the sample sizes are so small I can barely get an average, much less a standard deviation. I’ll let those of you who know less about stats google on those two terms. I’d much rather be rigging up “dancing umbrellas” for a living.
