Did You Know…

That ice is considered a mineral? And it apparently is the least dense of all minerals. Diamonds being the most dense. Therefore, using this logic, kittens are more dense than ice and less dense than diamonds.

Oh, wait, getting ahead of myself. This week’s article for the City Wire is up. You can read it here.

Okay, back to what I was saying about kittens. They are dense. It has been a week with the kittens, and the cuteness is starting wear off. See how cute you think they are after you clean bloody diarrhea out of the carpet. It think that fostering kittens is like fostering toddlers. Toddlers who have no attention span, are bipolar, have switchblades for fingers, have no control over said fingers, and are, by nature, hellbent on the destruction of your favorite things.

There was a period last night when, after grating on my last sleepy/cranky nerve, I announced that all kittens would be temporarily banished to “Daddy Doesn’t Love Me Island”. Come to think of it, I think I dated a few girls from there when I was younger.

Did you know that the Thursday before Good Friday is sometimes called Maundy Thursday? It is also referred to as Thursday of Mysteries. Awesome. Have you ever wondered why the early church would name the day when their lord and savior was executed Good Friday? Doesn’t that strike you as odd? I mean, sure I can understand naming the day when he rose from the grave to fight evildoers whilst riding a motorcycle with wheels of fire a “Good” day, but not the day when he was executed. After rereading that last statement, I am fairly certain that I have Jesus confused with Ghost Rider, but anyway you get the point. Perhaps it has something to do with the belief that he died to cleanse the stain of human sin from the face of the Earth, thereby granting all of the people that believe he did this, access to eternal paradise. They pronounced this day as a Good day. That makes sense. Of course, by the same rationale, those who do not believe that by being publicly executed in a slow and horribly painful way Jesus cleansed the world of sin, will thereby be granted access to eternal damnation and suffering with lakes of fire and sulfur and brimstone. They were probably not thinking that, if this scenario plays out the way I just described it, Friday is a Good day.

Whichever way you look at it, I seriously doubt Jesus was up on that cross thinking “Thank God its Friday.”. I’m just saying.

Did you know that your body is 0.0000010% Silver?

Did you know that dried hemlock has a specific gravity of 0.40?

Well, enough of this silliness. I need to go to work. More soon. ~SC
