Each job symbolizes the state's most famous industry, and each lasts one week — just long enough for the 26-year-old to appreciate the labor and explore the region.
Since starting in Utah in the first week of September, he's been a park ranger in Wyoming, a corn farmer in Nebraska and a wedding coordinator in Las Vegas.
Last week, in Week 23 of his year long saga, he was a cheesemaker in southeast Wisconsin. He mixed ingredients, hoisted slabs of cheddar — and tasted plenty of his work.
It appears to show a 3-dimensional structure constructed of interlaced pencils (which would probably have had to be glued together rather than held together by gravity/friction).
There are four sets of 18 pencils each, with each set arranged as a hexagon, and the sets intersecting in different planes. Tattoo Jim said...
I'm guessing this was part of the government bailout meeting in congress. Just something about it say "another government project".
So, with no diagnosis, Barry felt he'd no choice but to 'muddle through' life. He finished school, got married, became a chemical engineer and went on to have seven children, now aged between 12 and 35. It was only by chance, three years ago, that he discovered the source of his problems. Barry suffers from prosopagnosia, a condition also known as face blindness - where patients cannot recognize the faces of others, even those very close to them. It's estimated as many as 1.5million Britons might suffer from the condition, although there are many different degrees, and many people do not realize they are sufferers.The condition can be present from birth, as in Barry's case, or brought on by head injury - in both cases it leads to an interruption to the brain's normal processing of data that allows facial recognition. This means sufferers are able to conduct a normal conversation with somebody, but will fail to recognize that same person's face minutes later. They spend life relying on other 'clues' such as clothes, voice pitch, mannerisms and whether or not somebody wears glasses to recognize them.
