This was a truly moving video.  I’m not normally for country music (I prefer classical), but I was very moved.

Drunken Confession

27 04 2009

A drunken man staggered in to a Catholic church and sat down in a
confession box, saying nothing.

The bewildered priest coughed to attract his attention, but still the
man said nothing.

The priest then knocked on the wall three times in a final attempt to
get the man to speak.

Finally, the drunk replied, “No use knockin’, mate, there’s no paper in
this one either.”

Google and Googol

5 03 2009

I apologize for not posting in a while. There’s this wonderful Flu thing going around, and I was lucky enough to have won the lottery on that contest. Now, if I could only win the real lottery….

Anyways, I have an interesting tidbit about Google. I had a high schooler ask me what a googol was. First, I had to explain that a googol was NOT a search engine, but a math term, and the search engine creators made a word play on the math word Googol. Now, if you were to go to Wikipedia or some other source of information on the web (like there aren’t any…) and look up Google, it would take you directly to information about the search engine.

The real math term is spelled GOOGOL, and was coined in 1938. There are a couple of ways of expressing exactly what a googol is, but it’s basically the number one (1) followed by one hundred zeros. Mathmatically, we write this as:

10,​000,000,000,​000,000,000,​000,000,000,​000,000,000,​000,000,000,​000,000,000,​000,000,000,​000,000,000,​000,000,000,​000,000,000,​000,000,000

That is what a googol is. Its official English number name is ten duotrigintillion. But you already knew that, right? Now don’t get this confused with a Googolplex – that’s something different, but incorporates googols nontheless. But we’ll save that for another day! So go out and show your friends just how smart you are!





Penguin Awareness Day

21 01 2009

Hmm. Turns out, yesterday was Penguin Awareness Day. Now, we all love those little birds in their little tuxedos, and we love it when they waddle to the shore, jump in and fly through the water.

I just find it a bit funny that this day just happened to be on Obama’s inaugeration day……..A relation, perhaps?





Disrepectful??

16 01 2009

Okay, so now there’s news about Barak Obama not showing some respect for George W. Bush as he gave his final speech, and dined at some expensive place with 12 other people. In that respect, you can read the entire article here.

And just for those of you that don’t have time to read the whole article, this picture pretty much sums it up…
