Random Thoughts

---Dolphins might have better memories than elephants. I think this means we have to change that old saying.
---Hawaii is moving towards Japan at a rate of about four inches a year. Those thieves!
---Quint: to deliberately insult someone who is fishing for a compliment. And my new favorite thing.
---An animal control officer was found with 850 snakes in his apartment. I’m thinking he doesn’t understand the purpose of his job.
---Wait…pasty is a food? I only knew it as…something else.
---I’m surprised there aren’t more sci-fi works with titles that start with a Q. The letter just naturally lends itself to sci-fi, like X and Z.
---Whenever I get to hoping for humanity, I remember that there are still people out there who think Onion stories are real.
---“For each person, there is a sentence—a series of words—which has the power to destroy them.” Screw quint. THIS is my new favorite thing.
---“Scientists run dinosaur wind-tunnel tests”. They had dinosaurs and didn’t tell us?!!
---“Jon Gosslin threatens photog with gun”. Oh no! I scrolled down too far in my news feed and accidentally got into Entertainment “news”.
---I read a game review that claimed GTA V was ruined by “stubborn violence and sexism”. While the violence and sexism part is completely true, what did this guy expect the game to be about? If you’re going to protest the violence and sexism in GTA, go ahead and do it, but don’t act like that’s not what every GTA game ever has been full of.
---James Blunt was a captain in the British Army. Yes, that James Blunt.

---A guy actually computed what the difference is between a geek and a nerd. Apparently, a geek is someone who likes movies, television shows, and comics while a nerd is someone with interests in science and mathematics. I’m assuming this means the guy who made said computation is a total nerd.


  1. I'll have to write a Q book then.
    Are those scientists with the dinosaurs working for the government?

  2. But where does "dork" fit onto the geek/nerd spectrum?

  3. I had heard of pasties. I guess I read stuff about eras where they were more popular? That, or I watched too much Good Eats.

  4. The other kind of pasty is more fun. Particularly in removing it.

    Jon Gosselin hasn't done himself in yet? You'd figure he would have...

  5. There's nothing like a good Cornish Pasty.... But I think 'quinting' may become my new favorite thing too. I love learning new words like that.

  6. LOVE the last one! So, by reverse definition, someone who doesn't like movies, television shows, comics, science, or math is ... what? Cool? Yeah, he probably thinks so.

    And while it was recommended by a Welsh friend that I try a pasty while I was in Wales this summer ... I didn't. It looked full of calories to me, and something that would probably burn my mouth when I bit into it.

  7. I like it all. I'm not sure if I'm a geek or a nerd.

    Interesting stuff here.

  8. I think I corrected 'pasty' to 'pastry' in a critique once. Oops. :P

    Love this post. So much fun. :D
    Hey! Instead of 'Here's your sign,' maybe we should say 'Here's your onion story.' hahaha


Please validate me.
