Poor, Poor Miss Teen South Carolina

You have to feel sorry for her, but I mean really........

This is one young lady who doesn't have it together academically. The emcee states, "The interview is the make it or break it part of the contest." Hmmmmmm....can you believe she still came in fourth place?



Sure, one-fifth of the American population can't find the U.S. on a map because......they don't have maps!

In case you think she was just nervous check out her interview on the Miss US Teen website here. Of all the people in the world, living or dead, and she comes up with Lauren Hutton? And she's a star student...not in Algebra, not in Geography....she's a star student in Photoshop! Not much there other than responses that point to fluff and I'm going to use my looks for the rest of my life.

You may wonder where she came up with the words "Iraq", "South Africa", and "help the children"......These are code words the contestants are told will help them obtain a higher score with their answers. She should at least get a high score for including all of them even though her answer makes no sense.

Many people are using this video to comment on the state of public education....I'd rather discuss how this shows how low we have stooped culturally when a young lady such as this and those around her believe all you need is great looks to get ahead.

I'm sad for her. I hope this is a wake up call to the adults surrounding this beauty, and it should be a lesson to many of our young ladies out there.

Google Images....Thursday Thirteen Style

So, I was wondering....what would happen if you "googled" some tired overused word like "old".You would think images of old people, old buildings, etc. would come up. Not necessarily so.

Here are the top 13 images when I googled the word “old”. I included the blurb of text and linked to the home website.
Follow the links if you want to know what the rest of the text says, but you might have to really scavenge the site to find it.

In Case You Missed the Perseids....



From Wikipedia:

The Perseids are a prolific meteor shower[1] associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle. The Perseids are so called because the point they appear to come from, called the radiant, lies in the constellation Perseus. Meteor showers occur when Earth moves through a meteor stream. The stream in this case is called the Perseid cloud and it stretches along the orbit of the Comet Swift-Tuttle. The cloud consists of particles ejected by the comet as it passed by the Sun. Most of the dust in the cloud today is approximately a thousand years old. However, there is also a relatively young filament of dust in the stream that boiled off the comet in 1862. The approximate rate of meteors originating from this filament is much higher than normal.
The have been seen for over 2000 years.

Up, Up, and Away!


From Breitbarth....

One of Europe's largest balloon festivals was set for lift-off yesterday, with nearly half a million enthusiasts gathering to watch hundreds of balloons take to the skies -- weather permitting.

The annual Bristol International Balloon Fiesta takes place at the Ashton Court Estate until Sunday and is expected to attract between 400,000 and 500,000 visitors over the course of the four days.

Traditional highlights include the dawn and dusk mass balloon ascents, where over one hundred balloons of different shapes, sizes and colours will glide through the skies.

The Cast of Frasier Meets Star Trek

A New Version of the Periodic Table

Well, it doesn't look like the Periodic Table in my Physical Science class.

The caption with this image states: an alternate and updated periodic table, adapted from tables developed by Thomas Bayley, Jorgen Thompsen, and Niels Bohr. These lables depict symmetrical nature of the periodic law regarding the increase in intervals before periodicity occurs in every other period with the exception of the first one. Tie lines denote chemical analogies.

Huh? I’m glad these guys know what they are talking about.
