The moon is slowly losing grip of Earths gravitational pull, and will be out of sight in 10 billion years. No problem though, the sun will burn out in 6 billion years, so we won't have to worry about it.

I learned a tune called Fasten the Leggener.

As for that hot pepper juice, yeah, I learned that myself. What I also learned about it is that even after washing my hands, there's usually still enough of it on them to burn my eyes, so I now handle the pepper with only my non-dominant hand, to lessen the likelyhood of getting that stuff in my eye.

there is no such thing as a pancake maker, just a non-stick pan. which cost 50 bucks apparently. waffle makers cost like 60 dollars or over.

the brother has never seen nightmare before christmas. this must be changed.

I learned that squirrels in my area can get BIG! 8O

I was startled today by one about the size of a prairie dog when it suddenly jumped up on a wall near me. I jumped and said "Oh!", freaking out the squirrel who ran away. Actually, I'm not sure who was more scared, me or the squirrel! :lol:

yes, squirrels are quite tricky. dastardly animals.

i have a fascination with bouncy balls. i like to go outside and throw them at the ground as hard as i can and catch them in the air. when you're doing this it's very important to throw the ball straight on the ground. never throw it at an angle or anything. today i learned how truly important that is. my nose is still quite tender.

cool

----------------------------------------------

Lets see...i learned that alot of people
have this sick obsession with asses.
Guess they like it when things are
full of s**t, i dont know and i dont
think i want to know. One of those
things that make mankind look even
less appealing then before, there
seem to be no end to it and hopeless
to avoid :( I`m off to take a shower,
haved to rinse of what i have read today
and burn my clothes.

* WARNING: Not for the squeamish! *

What did I learn today?

I learned that by mixing an anti-histamine with ibuprofin and two plates of spaghetti, I can keep throwing up long after my stomach is empty. :eew:
