# Animation Log 5

I began animating today. Honoring the time-honored saying "a picture is worth one thousand words" (does that mean the saying is doubly honored now?), here is a screenshot, purportedly worth one thousand words:

...and with a stunning 1033 words, I conclude this week's blog entry.

Funnily the saying about pictures being worth a thousand words was written... in words.

I mean, shouldn't they at least have made a picture about it?

Technically, words are composed of letters. Letters are glyphs, and glyphs are pictures that have a specific meaning or represent a sound in spoken language.

That means that every letter is a picture. As such, the value in words of a word can be determined by multiplying the number of letters it contains by 1000.

That means that every letter is a picture. As such, the value in words of a word can be determined by multiplying the number of letters it contains by 1000.

So let's do a little math here:
Let's say we have a word w with n letters in it. The value of picture p = 1000w

or alternatively, p = 1000nl, l being the value of one letter, and n being the amount of letters in that word.

But if every letter were to be a picture (l = p), then p = 1000n*1000np

And then 1000n*1000n*1000np. And then 1000n*1000n*1000n*1000np. And so on for all eternity.

Since the function is recursive, it either means every picture is worth an infinite amount of words, which directly contradicts the statement that a picture if worth exactly 1000 words, and is therefore not a viable solution, or it means your theory is incorrect, and in this case I'm going to have to say it's the latter.

And this is why I hate stupid cliches...
