Poetry

What do you think it would sound like it dogs wrote poems? Probably something like…

Roses are grey,

violets are grey,

I can’t see colors,

and I don’t understand syntax or how to rhyme

Threadless Tattoo Challenge

So I entered another Threadless challenge. This one was to design a temp tattoo that they will give out to everyone at their annual “family reunion.” It would be totally sweet if you went here and voted it high so I could take the gold. Thanks! Also let me know what yo think!

 

Quick add-on: I made another design for this competition, check it out, and as with the last one, high scores are always welcome!

Everything is Possible

The human body is AMAZING! “Impossible” records are being broken all the time. Hicham El Guerrouj ran a mile in 3 minutes and 43 seconds. David Blane held his breath for over 17 minutes. No matter how ridiculous Olympic world records get, each year dozens of them are beaten by new athletes. Our bodies were so skillfully designed that we can accomplish nearly any task as long as we treat our bodies right. Everything is possible with training. Check out this video I came across.

You see these things and think to yourself, “Well I could never do that. That person is just good at it.” I think natural talent has a lot less to do with it than people believe. Not one of these people could do these things without training for hours, days, or even years. If you want to be able to do something, try it, and then try it again! Then keep working at it till you get it. You also have to go into it with the right mindset. Will power is half the battle. I don’t know about you, but I love adding to my personal repertoire of skills and abilities.

You could end up like this guy, and be good at all kinds of things. Or you could concentrate on one area and be like this unbelievable stuntman.

So what do you want to be able to do? Ride a unicycle? do a backflip? Swim the English Channel? You can do it. And I dare you to try.

Dude,

Wolverine could totally beat batman in a fight.

Erm… did I just blog that outloud?

Well now that I’m here, here’s a totally sweet picture to go with it.

Is it two Batmen or one Wolverine? This mind-blower was created by the awesome artist, Olly Moss. Click on the illustration to get to his website.

It just goes to prove that it takes two Batmen to equal one Wolverine. I rest my case.

I like it but I don’t like-like it.

Hey everyone, I just wanted to tell you the good news. This blog is equipped with a special feature that is gaining popularity. It’s called “commenting.” It allows readers not only to indicate if they “like” a particular post but also explain why they like it. This way the poster can gain useful feedback from readers instead of just seeing who “likes” it. I thought it was pretty nifty and a useful feature. You should try it out.

0h n0

Who’s bright idea was it to put the “O” key so close to the “0”(zero) key?

It clearly violates the Similarity Proximity equation. There is a direct relation between the two.

Proximity(P) = Similarity(S)

This graph shows it clearly.

By my calculations “O” and “0” should be on opposite sides of the keyboard. And yes that is the actual number of inches from the North Pole to the South Pole.



















On another note, “M” and “N” should also be farther away from each other. This statement was so similar to my previous one that I was forced to put it way down here lest I break the Similarity Proximity equation.

Potential

I recently came across this inspiring quote by Albert Einstein.

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

This is so true! What do you think of when you hear the word “genius”? You probably don’t think of yourself do you? I bet the first thing to come into you mind is something like this picture———————————-right here——->

Here is the dictionary definition of the word:

noun /ˈjēnyəs/
geniuses, plural

  • Exceptional intellectual or creative power or other natural ability
    • – she was a teacher of genius
    • – Gardner had a real genius for tapping wealth
  • A person who is exceptionally intelligent or creative, either generally or in some particular respect

As it says right there, intellectual OR creative power OR other natural ability. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to be a genius. Everyone has mastery of some subject or matter. Everyone has some natural talent or ability. Some are yet to be discovered but it is within everyone’s grasp. You just need to find it!

Will power and determination are two of the most powerful tools you own. All you have to do is use them!
