Pencils, aside from erasers, are actually more permanent than pens. This is because graphite, unlike ink, is not water soluble and is vastly more lightfast (won't fade in the sun). Books and notes found in the wreckage of the titanic were completely lost if they were written in ink, but notepads and such drawn in graphite were reasonably readable.

Also; despite the more “technological” appearance of pens compared to pencils these days, pens actually predate pencils by several hundred (thousand?) years.

It is impossible for a child to be formed (Development through pregnancy) anywhere except for the uterus

There is a group of people in the US who are trying to get marriage outlawed

On average, marriages only last for 9 years in the US

In the area I live in, it is illegal to bang your head against a brick wall 7 times. However, if the offender does it more or less times, then the crime is cancelled



Until next time

Due to the fact that Fox knew that it's Fox Kid's segment was going to be phased out after 2003, they got lazy and left the third season of Digimon virtually unedited. This left blood, semi-nudity, mature themes, and many other things you wouldn't normally find in children's anime still there.

yeah, I knew this because I watched it then. :) it was awesome though…. just to see it not be dumbed down or something.

it still irates me when I see anime being dumbed down or watered down just for younger kids when it was actually targeted at spefic age groups and not any below that. for example, animes targeted at 10-13 years olds would get dumbed down in america to be suitable for even younger kids.

or when animes directed at 15-17 years olds (and is therefore more mature than animes directed at 10-13 yearolds) would be dumbed down to be suitable for 8 to 10-year-olds.

ARGH! it's just ruining the anime as an whole.
They did this for one piece…. Sanjii the cook smokes a lot in the anime. in fact you'd be hard pressed to not see smoke billowing about his head at any time…. but in the 4kids dub, they had him constantly suck an lolliop instead.

instead of portaying him as an man who has an addiction problem with ciggerates, they turned him into an man who had an oral fixation with needing to suck on things.

and to top it off they totally butchered the storyline… keeping only the one thing basic: Luffy wants to be king of all pirates. travelling to the grand line.
they changed everything else.

-Cats don’t always land on their feet.

-Cats can see in colour and they can see better than us in the dark, but they can’t see as well as us during the day.

-People who prefer “hot”, “spicy”, style foods do so because they have less sensitive tastebuds and so require greater levels of stimulation. And so people who actually enjoy “bland” food probably don’t ‘see’ it as bland, it’s just that others aren’t sensitive enough to taste it as they do.
(I find that an amazing way of thinking about food.)

-The first act of violent terrorism in 20thC Australia was perpetrated by two Turkish extremists who carried a bunch of guns in a baby’s pram and then used them to fire randomly into a crowd. It was something to do with WW1.

-Indonesia is the largest Muslim country (population wise).

-India is the world's largest democracy

-It’s impossible to be sucked under the surface by wet quicksand, but it’s still extremely dangerous and people are killed because of it (usually by incoming tides).

-You can disappear without a trace into dry quicksand.

-Gandhara, Buddha’s place of origin, is believed to have been in Afghanistan, not India.

-The terrorist group that pioneered the strategy of suicide bombing in the 20thC and has used it most often are Sri Lanka’s Tamil Tigers, (they’re Buddhists).

yet there are the rare cases such as this that indicates that it's possible for a child to be delevloped outside the uterus in other body parts.
