Clearly that's Vegan/Vegitarian porn.

He must've eaten A LOT of broccoli.

I am the broccolis.

God dammit, i was going to post those.

At least it wasn't a dishonorable broccoli.

I have only one FJ item...


And its broccoli.

Damn guys, give it a try! It's more fun than it seems!

Oh my god it is actually quite amusing to look at broccoli.

Mesmerizing!

Thanks for reposting that for me

A BROCCOLI IS A NATURAL FRACTAL!

Romanesco Broccoli is an awesomer fractal.
User avatar #82 to #34 - arstya (01/19/2013) [-]
What is a fractal? Mind explaining?
#101 to #82 - pachecodos (01/20/2013) [-]
Fractals where first "created" as mathematical objects in the XIX s. But at that time they were just curiosities. Notable examples you can google.    
Sherpinski triangle: Infinite perimeter and zero area   
Koch curve: Infinite perimeter and FINITE area   
Cantor dust: this one has some interesting properties but then again, only mathematically interesting.    
   
They are created through ITERATION (you do something. Then do it again. Then do it again, etc...). For example in the shierpinski triangle you make a triforce out of a triangle. Out of the tree triangles left you make another triforce, etc...    
   
More complexely mathematical you can google Mandelbrot. You will see you can zoom any part of it and you will find yourself again looking at the whole picture.   
   
If you search for koch curve in the internet you will see it resembles vaguely a snowflake. Here is where the interests of fractals reside.   
   
Through the study of fractals we can understand natural things that would be classically complex. That includes,   
Anything with ramifications, some cancers, some mineral veins, the movement of some particles, etc...    
   
Another use, the mandelbrot image you have looked at is generated just from a formula and you can zoom at it all you want if the computer knows this formula you will keep seeing a perfect resolution image. If some images (like mountains, clouds, etc...) could be transformed into formulas. Then, if a videogame could run this formulas and show you the images you would get really quality images with less memory need.

So it turns into fragments that turn into little fragments and so on? Based on the images that seems right.
#103 to #102 - pachecodos (01/23/2013) [-]
You cannot tell how much you have zoomed in cause it looks the same. So your explanation it's right (although it's a simplification).

Mathematically it uses an equation where the solution is introduced again on the equation generating another solution. And by reiteration of this procedure you get your fractal.

He was reminiscing.

Doesn't make it less true

It looks like he is in Photoshop editing a photo of broccoli, that would explain it easily.

This wasn't a funny comment I'm sorry........
#9 to #2 - heldiggrisen (01/19/2013) [-]
It might be "food make-up" he's doing. Almost every food container or ad for food products are photoshopped to make the food look better. Either that or he 420'ed.

And here I am looking at a picture of a person looking at broccoli...

Well **** .

Hold up hold up hold up, isn't that normal?? I mean, its a typical thing to do, right?

Also, I have WAY too many broccoli pics!

Someone had to do it.

In b4 "Photoshop skills off the charts."

nice thumbnail
#91 - anon (01/20/2013) [-]
Maybe he is a graphics designer and studying the shape
#95 to #91 - fuckedbyapony ONLINE (01/20/2013) [-]
Hes at school though right?
#99 to #95 - amuzen (01/20/2013) [-]
which would be exactly where a graphics designer would be studying.

My first thought when I saw it is that he's a 3D artist and he's trying to line up his UVW's with the broccoli texture so that he can make a realistic broccoli prop maybe for like a giant broccoli tree in a game or something. I say this because it looks like he has it open in photoshop and if you were just going to stare at it would be easier to open it in window previewer.

Damn I took graphics design in school and didn't get to study any brocollis
User avatar #19 - MwMseeta (01/19/2013) [-]
This might also be because he is looking for Fibonacci numbers/ Lucas numbers in the spirals of the branches (1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55...)
