Today Doodle is consecrated to Raymond Loewy, master of the bullet train.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''

That's what that was! I saw it in the corner of a search results page last night, but didn't pursue it.

Incidentally, he wasn't merely the "master of the bullet train," but of all things streamlined, from automobiles to kitchen appliances to restaurants to corporate logos. as well as the interior of Skylab.

Sorry, i doesn't actually pursue my inquiry further than the fact the doodle was shaped as a bullet train.

Not a problem. It's just interesting that he was essentially the person responsible for the streamlined kitchen appliances that were all the rage in the '40s and '50s. You know, the ones that don't actually move, but look as though they can go nowhere really really fast.
