American Idol Results

First guy to leave is.... Jason Yeager. Not a big surprise, he's a little campy.

First girl to leave is.... Miss Lushington - me and my mom both called this one. You have to really stand out, there is some good competition this year. You gotta make people wanna vote for you. She ran off the stage when she was done singing and hugged, crying David A.

Second girl to leave is... Alaina or Katie.. dun dun it's Alaina... awww. She did a really great job and has a good voice, she just didn't stand out enough to get peole to vote for her. It was sad she started crying and said "I can't sing" ugh, Imagine having to sing after that! Ryan gave her the choice of singing or not, she didn't want to but She did anyways and the other girls came out and stood behind her.

Last guy to leave is... It's between the two we were guessing. Luke and Robbie.. dun dun dun. And it's Robbie. "Just never ever felt real" - Simon. I just couldnt imagine who would have vo…

mmhmm

Peak Vitality:

http://www.peakvitality.org/

"We often strive for our peak of accomplishment: peak health, peak wealth, peak performance. The idea for this anthology came from a further question that is both simple but provocative: "What if we could exceed the upper limits of our performance?" What would happen if, rather than focusing on being physically well, we imagined ourselves physically vibrant? What would happen if rather than seeking 100% of the good that might come to us, we pushed past our boundaries, and pictured what 112% might look like? What would happen if we took our upper limits of vision as a baseline, rather than a ceiling? Could we be happier, more abundant, and healthier than our wildest dreams?

Studies in social science and human physiology indicate that each of us has a series of set points. We have a set point for how much pleasure we allow ourselves to experience, how much money we feel we're worth, how close we believe can get to God, and the …

American Idol - Girls Second week

70's themed. I think the guys did a better job last night. "Pretty fantastic, very good." - is what Paula said about the men. There really weren't any songs I liked, but the girls still did pretty good with them. A lot of the songs seemed really repetitive and boring but I think they still could have tried harder. It's like they are all just trying to get by to the next round instead of actually trying to do their best. I can't even imagine how hard it would be and how you couldn't be over thinking it. They just dont seem to be getting really really into the songs. There weren't any I would want to go back and listen to again, like I did last night with David haha.

Americas next top model, shocker

The first shocker of this season of Americas Next top model came at tonights judgeing. Coincidentally my favorite girl Kimberly, when getting her review at judgeing said she didn't really like fashion and wasn't interested in it, in response to Miss J saying she looked "bored on the run way." Tyra said that she just had to send 6 crying girls home that really wanted to be there -"and here you are in this place and saying that this isn't something youre passionate about"

Kimberly said: -
"I'm just being honest i dont believe in this whole, i need to wear designer out fits. I'm saying thats why. i dont find it interesting." Tyra replied - "Do you want to just go home." - "Yeah" "Alright go home. "

And with that Kimberly Walked out.

I can understand why. Fashion isn't for everyone, it's very superficial and if you're not really into it, it can be annoying. It's kinda like politics, where people fe…

Lion laying with the lam....no tiger with the piggies

Image
This tiger lost her cubs and subsequently her health started to decline from the depression it caused her. I guess they couldnt' find any baby tigers so they decided to put some baby pigs in there, with stripes on. I dont think the tiger really thinks that they are tigers, she just really really wanted some babies. "Never under estimate the power of denial."

She ignored the alluring scent of bacon and pretended the stripes were real. Ignorance is bliss in this case, especially for the piglets. I thought it was suppose to be the "Lion laying with the Lamb" but this is even more interesting.

He lived

Image
Caught by a traffic camera. The guy lived because he was right under the dent that the pt cruiser left in the subaru when it rolled over on him - avoiding being crushed. That's one lucky man. Well, guess he would have been even luckier had he not been hit at all.

CAT DIARY
Day 983 of my captivity.
My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.
They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit o…

Top 10 Men - American Idol

This is American Idol.
The second week for the guys and 70's themed. It was over all better than the previous week and better songs. I'm not really into rock that much, especially the stuff from before I was born. There are about 3-4 guys that are all kinda rock oriented and need to stand out more from each other. I sometimes find it hard to appreciate their voices in a rock song, so it's more dependent on their performaces. The judges got a long better tonight and were in a better mood than last week. Stand out performances were from David A and David Hernandez - who did an amazing job and looked great. He did really great things with his voice. And last and coincidentally best was David A who blew everyone away. When I was watching it I said he's going to win the whole show. Watch. - Low lights were Jason, he's trying too hard, and not enough at the same time.
Best comment came from Paula:"You are rediculous, i want to schwoosh you sqeeze you head off and da…

Election

There is so much propoganda going on lately. Hilary, Obaman, whoever the Republican ones are.


Who am I going to vote for?

No one! I honestly don't care. I don't really have anyone I would want to vote for - so why should I? It's our right, not our duty to vote.

I think it would be cool to have a women president. I think it would be cool to have a black president. I don't think it would be cool to have another republican president. I'm more for the weakest person to win because I think the people should take back more control of their country and not be so dependent on a single person's decisions. I dont think going to war was in our countries best interest, it was for oil and control - possibly retaliation (if Iraq actually did anything)

I think the whole party system has to go, it's so stupid. It divides people for no reason and forces them to pick sides - but aren't we all on the same side? While two sides struggle for control and the implimentation of th…

Stem Chin

" Scientists in Finland said they had replaced a 65-year-old patient's upper jaw with a bone transplant cultivated from stem cells isolated from his own fatty tissue and grown inside his abdomen. "
http://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireStory?id=4229380This is some of the best news i've heard in a while. Stem cells have the potential to cure all disease, re-grow limbs, give sight to the blind, and potentially even eliminating the age-ing process. They are basically the cells that can turn into any other kind of cell. Like how the cells a sperm and egg form go on to change into lung cells, brain cells, etc. We're just trying to figure out how to tell the stem cells to grow into what we want.

The controversy was that they got the stem cells from fetuses. Now they figured out other ways to get them. A lot of people think it's "playing god" but what's wrong with that? You're playing god more by driving a car and polluting the earth which could lead to a…

Acne

Zits suck. They can ruin not just a single day, but your entire life. Big ugly sists on your face - are definitley not a good thing - nor very attractive.

Some scientists theorize they come about to help you keep your virginity as you're going through puberty. They think they'll ward away any advances from potential mates.


Dermatologists say they come about because of hormones and an increase in oil production.

Why-ever they come about, they suck! I've dealt with them since I went throught he changes of life around 11 yo and even deal with them today. It's always been a struggle. For someone who's battled OCD they were constantly on my mind - and face for years. I've found the hardest part is the emotional havock they reek on your self esteem. Each night I would go to sleep in fear of waking up with a new friend on my face each morning. I would imagine that everyone I saw - only saw the flaws on my face - because they are the only things I saw on my face - all th…

The Shroud of Turin - By Da Vinci or Jesus?

Image
I just happened across a blog about the shroud of turin that I had left a comment on a few months back. Although i'm not the first to say that Da Vinci created the shroud of turin, I have found some new pretty compelling evidence. For those who dont know what the shroud of turin is, it's suppose to be the single most studied human artifact. When Jesus was crusified and later buried, they wrapped a cloth around him. This cloth was supposidly saved and preserved for 2000 or so years.

Obviously there really would have been a cloth that Jesus was buried with. It could have gotten some of his blood on it, in the shape of his face and body, and bones. But that's not the divine part. The shroud has 3d properties to it, it's essentially a 3 dimentional photograph. *This isn't my claim, this is what the people who have studied it found* I don't doubt this at all, it's obvious there are photographic/3d properties to it when it's inverted. (the blue version on the i…

Einstein: The Autism Connection

For those who haven't read my book, I theorize that Da Vinci had autism as well. In my next re-write i'm developing my own theory/ label for the condition that allows for these autistic people to be so gifted.

Basically trying to answer the question - What makes someone genius?

Nature/ Nurture/ Brain/ Education.

It's going to be called DBS, Distracted Brilliance Syndrome. It's like OCD, Autism, savant / all those mysterious brain abnormalities that can either disable someone or cause extreme levels of advancement with the right focus.

One thing they didn't mention in this video that I remember about Einstein that supports that he had autism was the size of his brain. When he died they examined it and it was larger than average. People with autism usually have a larger brain/ skull than normal too.

As for me, I've noticed that i've become a recluse lately. Like it said about Einstein in the video, there are certain points in my life where i need to be alone. I…
