Why (2)

Some people seem to have one purpose in life: to make everybody hate them.


Stargazing & Mensa

As I write this post, I'm out here on the patio looking at stars. I just found the constellation Orion and the stars Betelguese, Rigel, Procyon, Pollux, Castor, and Aldebaran. Oh, and Venus is up.

On a related note, Google Earth needs to add a red tint feature to it so that people (such as me) can use it as a star chart without killing my night vision.

Today I was messing around on the Internet and discovered the Mensa Workout Quiz. I took it twice and got 21/30 the first time and 27/30 the second time. The computer that runs Mensa thinks I'd probably pass the Mensa quiz and get in! Just for fun, here's one of the trickier questions:

Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson.

This is definitaly one of the best books I've ever read. It's the futuristic story of a pizza delivery boy for the mafia who discovers a plot by the Earth's communications monopolist, L. Bob Rife, to take over the world... just weird enough to be totally awesome.

Origami Pics

Here you go. The silver ones are the ones I made, the multicolor ones I had to take from a book because my camera couldn't take good photos of the silver ones. Just try to imagine the multicolor ones all shiny silver.

Also, if you're getting into origami are even if you're already good at it, I recommend The Origami Handbook by Rick Beech - It's by far the best I've ever found.


I'm making a really cool looking origami project. I'll upload pics once I get it all put together.

Space Pics

I've got a bunch of cool pics of space:


If a girl hugs a girls, no one blinks unless there's dust in their eye or if their eye is dry.
If a girl hugs a guy or vice versa, people assume they're going out.
If a guy hugs a guy, people assume they're gay and shy away.
