They are so awesome and cute. My sister is fostering kittens for a volunteer thing, and I really don't want to give this one back... =D
P.S. How do you post multiple pictures in one post?
Just failed a Chem quiz. Shit happens.
On another note, I have just become addicted to reddit, which if you didn't know, is like 4chan, but with a condom. I just go on the funny page. =D
In other news, I have sadly discovered that our family will not go on our usual summer vacation this year due to unforeseen circumstances. Since this particular vacation is also my favorite one of all time, I am simply left... heartbroken. =(
Because I'm too busy to think of anything else to post.
I know it's probably really boring, and no one will read it, (I don't expect you to, really) I just felt like posting it.
If you could invent something, what would it be, and why?
The production of energy to power the nation is one of today's biggest concerns. Currently used methods of energy production include coal power, hydroelectric power, and nuclear power.
Coal power is the most commonly used power in the United States. That being said, it has many flaws. Coal is a nonrenewable resource, meaning that eventually the coal will run out, presenting a major problem. Additionally, the environmental effects that coal power causes can be devastating. The CO2 travels into the atmosphere, creating smog in the worst cases, leaving a city an unsafe place for anyone to live in, whether they wear the breathing masks to protect themselves from smog or not.
Hydroelectric power is another form of power the US relies fairly heavily on, damming almost every single river in the United States, most more than once as they progress on their way to the ocean. This provides clean, renewable energy for many cities, and also creates reservoirs for cities like Los Vegas that are in the desert and are in need of a source of drinking water. This energy, however, also comes with drawbacks. It is not reliable, subject to failing if there is a particularly devastating drought. The dams disrupt the ecosystems of fish in the river that have to swim up and down the river as their nature dictates. The lakes created also are not very efficient reservoirs for use, as their surface area as lakes are much greater than as rivers, increasing evaporation and loss of freshwater.
Nuclear power seems to be the next step for the US to get off of its dependency on coal. It is not nearly as environmentally devastating as coal, as the dangerous radioactive byproduct is very small, and is easily storable in warehouses where it will not affect the environment as much. However, it is not very popular in public opinion, as the danger it poses to society in the possibility of nuclear meltdowns and fallout should not be ignored. Nuclear power plants are also extremely expensive to build, so an all-out conversion to nuclear power is not even close to feasible.
Scientists and engineers are constantly searching for new sources of energy that are renewable, environmentally friendly, and reliable. If I were to join that workforce, I would try to create an alternative energy source by harnessing the power of the ocean, or oceanic power. Caused by the gravitational pull of the moon, the ocean's waves pound the shore 7 days a week; 365 days a year. From that constant motion, immense amounts of energy could be gleaned. The perks this type of power would have would be great. It would be a renewable source of energy, as it is all caused by the gravitational pull of the moon. It would be reliable, because the tides do not stop due to weather or other factors aside from something happening to the moon. There would not be an issue with finding space to put them, as any place where the land touches the ocean could technically be used for the generation of power. There would not be conflict with recreational beaches, as the steeper beaches are where the waves are most violent, meaning they are more likely to produce more energy, and all recreational beaches are as flat as they can be to make them safer. Foreseeing possible negative side-effects mainly would mainly be environmental effects. However, any change to the shore of an ocean would most likely be no less detrimental than the presence of the recreational beaches.
I would want to invent this sort of new power source because it would actually be practical and helpful in the United States' current energy crisis. As our current resources such as coal run out, we will need a new energy resource. If I am to be a good citizen, I should expend my time in order to provide the ideas and actions needed in order to allow the United States to progress without having to rely on something as flawed and detrimental as coal power.
No, not in a bad way, it's just I have not cried in a really, really long time, and it's slightly gratifying. When I'm done, it just feels right. I just don't usually cry over things. Movies, books, whatever, they make me really sad, but I never really cry about them. It's not a whole macho thing, cause I'm not that kind of guy, I just don't cry too much. So, I have been feeling like I should cry about something for about a month now, yet I don't cry about things. It's quite the predicament. Any suggestions aside for me to stop angsting and get a job? xD (Don't tell me to watch the Notebook)
You know, the word "epic" has really changed and morphed over the past few years. The connotation it has is so immense now. I realized this a little ago. I was talking to my grandmother, telling her about how The Dark Knight was an epic movie, but she didn't really get it. I guess for her, epic means dramatic, not really the extreme I have for it. For me, epic means the combination of all things that could leave you stunned and bewildered due to awesomeness, whether that be an incredible plot in a movie/anime/videogame, a really good romance in a story, a combination of terrible things that happen to a character to give them the shittiest life ever, yet they power through it. Epic is really just everything that is good in a story that makes you stop and admire the masterpiece that it is.
I feel kinda honored, seeing as how our generation has cornered a word. 60's has groovy, we have epic, but I think epic is better. That being said, I also think epic is the most incorrectly used word ever. (GEE GUYS LOOK AT MYZ EPICZ 360 NOSCOPEZ!11!!! OR MY EPICZ OWNAGES!!11!)
Roses are red
Violets are blue
I have a knife
Get in my van
...Annnd that's about the best I can do. Yet I have to write a poem for English that involves Carpe Diem by tomorrow. ='(
The level of indifference I have reached today cannot be explained. Today I don't really care. =D
What type of music do you like? What type do you hate? I'll be obtuse to start it off, saying I love screamo and any other sort of rock, but hate rap and country. GO!
