BLOB

(Binary Large OBject) A database field that holds any digitized information, including text, images, audio and video. Also known simply as a "large object" or LOB, a BLOB may have a huge storage capacity. BLOB content is generally created once and viewed many times, and it is rarely edited, but it is occasionally deleted.

Generally Opaque to the DBMS
The contents of a BLOB are generally unknown to the database management system (DBMS) that supports them. An application must create and edit the content, while the DBMS stores it. Contrast with CLOB. See object database and relational database.

The blobs appear in a range of different sizes, preferentially at particular sizes, up one degree across (300,000 light years), each with different temperature deviations from the average 2.7 K.
Dave Whitehead took seven fish on an Orange Blob fished static on a sinking line.
The last important procedure of step 1 is ordering BLOBs in the final squareBlobList according to increasing distance of particular BLOB centroid (center of rectangle that surrounds a BLOB) from origin of binary image with coordinates ([x.sub.0], [y.sub.0]).
The model revealed that the direction in which the balls of fire are ejected flip-flops slightly from side-to-side - possibly due to a wobble in the accretion disk. The red giant is also obscured every 17 years when one of the blobs passes in front of it from Earth's perspective.
After clustering, clusters containing only single blob are determined to be noncoded targets directly, and clusters containing reasonable amount of blobs are determined to be potential coded targets, since a true coded target contains at least 4 reference points and limited amount of coding points.
Smaller blobs represent the games that aren't quite as easy or tough - Everton don't have a red blob of any size on their horizon until their trip to Anfield on January 28, while once Liverpool are over their festive trips to City and Chelsea, they have a relatively benign run until Arsenal come to town on February 8.
Four cops in Philadelphia first came across a huge blob in 1950 and their discovery led to the 1958 sci-fi film.

Lyman-alpha blobs are some of the biggest objects in the Universe: gigantic clouds of hydrogen gas that can reach diameters of a few hundred thousand light-years (a few times larger than the size of the Milky Way), and which are as powerful as the brightest galaxies.
Bombs are awarded for lines of six or more blobs, allowing gamers to do greater damage and remove more blobs!
