Interesting, but not for individual posts

I'm off to the beach for vacation, so I figured I'd leave you with enough content to cover my absence. Now don't read it all in one place.

Worlds Most Expensive Home: This soon to be 27 story skyscraper in downtown Mumbai will cost $2 billion (more than three times as expensive as any other home ever built). Maybe most surprising, is that by demand, no two floors will be alike, in either design or materials used. Do you have any seemingly irrational quirks about you? Well your not alone. Here are some humorous examples submitted to the site:
-I would stand in front of a digital clock and make an equation out of the time. For example 11:34 could be 1 x 1 + 3 = 4. If I couldn’t make an equation, I would wait for the numbers to change to a time that would work out in an equation.
-I try to step over the same number of cracks with each leg. I will change my route (slightly) to make the number come out right.
-I have to eat snack food, like chips or pretzels, in increments of two, one for each side of my mouth. Personalize and create your own search engine with your own logo. Just type in any name you want. Born in 1936, there are quite a few things younger than John McCain: Nylon, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Velcro, Superman, the current nation of Israel, Polio Vaccine, Scientology, FM radio, AARP, both of Barack Obama's parents and 274,485,639 (or 91%) of Americans.

Students for Concealed Carry on Campus is an organization comprised of over 30,000 members, mostly students, who support the right of concealed handgun license holders to carry concealed handguns on college campuses. I especially like that SCCC supports states' rights, by pushiong for change at the state level, rather than at the federal level. I would probably agree with most of their positions. It cannot be coincidence that most shootings happen in places where guns are banned, like high schools, colleges, banks, etc. (shooters know there will be little immediate opposition).

  1. I'm trying to think of another reason why shootings happen in banks more than other places. Hmm... why could it be...


You are the reason why I do not write privately. I would love to hear your thoughts, whether you agree or not.
