Virginia Tech Massacre

I'm surprised nobody in my blog circle talked about the Virgina Tech Massacre yet. Some guy decided to randomly shoot 2 people in a Virginia Tech dorm and about 30 more in a academic building, and then supposably shot himself as police closed in (according to the news). And that makes it the deadliest mass shooting in US history, outside of wars of course.

Let's take a brief moment and grief for all that died at Virgina Tech, and all their families whose lives have turned upside down due to the loss of a loved one.

Creatively Dissed



Those who know me know that I randomly ask women for the #'s or Emails, whichever seems convenient to me at the time. My success rate is usually about 50/50, half the time I get fake #'s or Email addresses.

This one I just got really "takes the cake". I met this girl at a seminar in DC. The Email address is written so sloppily that it couldn't be read, but the "@aol.com" part is written perfectly.

Kiwi Bird Flying on YouTube



So I saw this video on YouTube, and this kiwi bird. Kiwi birds can't fly, and this one spent its whole life creating a "horizontal plane" out of a cliff so when it falls down, it would know what it's like to fly.

I'm slightly confused about the ending: Did the kiwi bird die at the end of it, from falling down a cliff because it "fulfilled its life dream of flying"? Or would the kiwi bird be smart enough to do it where there's deep water at the bottom of the cliff, so it can stay alive, climb back up the cliff and do it over and over every day?
