Did You Know That?!
Isaac Newton’s only recorded utterance while he was a member of Parliament was a request to open the window
I think that that is freaking hilarious…one of the most brilliant men in history only spoke up to say that he was a bit warm and would like to cool off….no profound thoughts..just “hey open that window, it’s freakin’ hot in here” I am glad that Newton wasn’t a complete know-it-all. I think that more “intelligent people” need to take a lesson…if your smart you don’t have to talk like a freaking scientist 24/7 no one likes to be around people who constantly talk down to everyone around them. Just sit back, relax and speak up if your too hot.
“The Mormon’s are Coming…The Mormons are Coming”
That is right kids…some nice young Mormon gentlemen stopped my by house to talk about their beliefs and drop off a Book of Mormon that I requested while in Salt Lake City, UT. I did some research before they came, so they didn’t really tell me anyhting new, but it sure is interesting seeing how they minister and spread their “gospel” I think that talking to people who hold extremely different beliefs than you can really help you learn more about your own beliefs and value them a lot more.
The backpacking trip did go well and the whole story is fully documented on my brother’s blog
I have to write one historical paper on a either a foreign film, director or actor…I think I am going to go for director…maybe Carl Theodore Dreyer. the other paper is a critique of a media artifact (movie, album, event, t.v. show, etc) I think I am going to do a movie…something really good…my current idea is Kramer vs Kramer
I would now like to say that if you ever become a manager of any sort of business…please treat your employees as equals, as human beings, as people with needs and lives outside of work…for more information please contact me.
