Science Explained!

Here is a funny that a friend passed on to me, since he knows I'm always interested in learning "new science"....somehow I'm thinking this just may not be quite right. Enjoy!

Back to School Science You Won't Believe... The following are actual submissions on a series of quizzes, tests, and essays.

"Nitrogen is not found in Ireland because it is not found in a free state."

"H2O is hot water, and CO2 is cold water."

"To collect fumes of sulphur, hold a deacon over a flame in a test tube."

"When you smell an oderless gas, it is probably carbon monoxide."

"Water is composed of two gins, Oxygin and Hydrogin. Oxygin is pure gin. Hydrogin is gin and water."

"Three kinds of blood vessels are arteries, vanes and caterpillars."

"The body consists of three parts - the branium, the borax, and the abominable cavity. The branium contains the brain, the borax contains the heart and lungs, and the abominable cavity contains the bowels, of which there are five - a, e, i, o, and u."

"Blood flows down one leg and up the other."

"Respiration is composed of two acts, first inspiration, and then expectoration."

"The moon is a planet just like the earth, only it is even deader."

"Artifical insemination is when the farmer does it to the cow instead of the bull."

"Dew is formed on leaves when the sun shines down on them and makes them perspire."

"A super saturated solution is one that holds more than it can hold."

"Mushrooms always grow in damp places and so they look like umbrellas."

"The pistol of a flower is its only protections agenst insects."

"The skeleton is what is left after the insides have been taken out and the outsides have been taken off. The purpose of the skeleton is something to hitch meat to."

I Wish You Enough

These sentiments were passed on to me by a friend, I've cut out the "story" that came with the email because I think these words are strong enough to stand alone:

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more..

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good- bye.

Rainy day

We are having a rainy day today. I've been a bit under the weather, I'm thinking head cold, my son is thinking "SWINE FLU". LOL! I love it when the "kid" becomes the "over protective parent".

So I was sitting back this morning and thinking of all the projects I've seem to manage to get going and thinking of the best way to organize them.

I have school projects and home projects and "teaching" projects which are different from my school projects.

Home projects:
tile floors
paint walls
assemble shed
design and make raised beds (I have four at least in mind)
finish moving

School projects:
Bluebirds and their defense
Bluebirds and their prey delivery
Bats and Fish
Rabies vaccine donations

Teaching projects:
grade all those exams and papers
decide on drawings

AND I really think I'm forgetting something!!!

As a most important note: I've added a link to a really GOOD blog with a LOT of useful info. This is just getting started but I am familiar with the guy and he knows his stuff. It's the "Freedom of the Hills" link over on the right. He is an excellent writer! And I'm hoping he puts his stories on there also.

take care!
