A few months back I was reading a book (Artemis Fowl, if you must know). To create a distraction so someone could do something (the details escape me) little Arty begins talking to someone about the theory of evolution. Once the task is complete, Artemis, who had been acting like a skeptic quickly agreed with the man to end the conversation. Once him and his bodyguard are able to talk freely, Artemis says something to the effect of "Yeah right, that theory has more holes than a dam made out of Swiss cheese."
I just realized if he had said the same thing about the Bible or something, people would be up in arms. There would be public mass-burnings of the book, Eoin Colfer's house would be vandalized, death threats would be made against him, and a host of other nasty things. But instead, hardly anyone knows about what he said. In fact, I can imagine Orthodox Christians with a look of smugness on their face as they read the page. "Take that, Atheists!" they say, "a fictional 15 year old genius has mentioned he doesn't believe in the Theory of Evolution. WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT, HUH?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!"
In fact, I bet some wise editor changed the topic of discussion for Master Fowl to the theory of evolution, just to aviod the trouble he knew would arise.
PS: Whoever can find a quote on the web of someone citing Artemis Fowl as a source to disprove evolution will earn my eternal love.
Complainatron is the girl that sits next to me in math class. Her favorite hobbies include:
Complaining about how stupid the class is.
Complaining about how gay the class is.
Complaining about how much she hates the teacher.
And various other things.
Luckily the friend she complains to was gone today so she was silent today, maybe she's DONE complaining.
I'm sure everyone remembers that whole "PMG MODSIES SINE ME SIGGEH!!!" fad. Well it's coming back. Slowly but surely people are saying outright "sine sig porfavor" or just faking that a mod signed their sig. These signs are subtle, but my experts are rarely wrong.
Period one, Biology: THE TEACHER IS CANADIAN HOLY :P!!! She made us do an assignment to supposedly learn about us, but with 200 students I don't think she'll try too hard to memorize what we put down.
Period two, Seminary: The teacher talks with a slight lisp, I hope I can get used to in. The class is full of idiots but they were pretty quiet. I think they know how rabid people get over religion.
Period three, Spanish: I have the same teacher as last year. I actually really like her.
Period four, Geometry: I don't really know much about the teacher or the class. We spent this period playing "Personality BINGO"
Period five, Language Arts: The teacher is slightly insane, but she seems okay.
Period six, Geography: The teacher has and endless supply of jokes, most of them lame. He says he can't get into the good ones until he's sure we won't tell our parents. D: He also made it clear he would offend every one of us by the end of the year.
Period sever, Band: Same teacher I've had since 7th grade. He's okay until he gets mad.
I thought I only had to do a test on a book for the first day of school but I was told I had to do a report so I typed up a report really quick and here I am.
[bragging]Even if I did do the report in an hour it's still probably better that 90% of the reports that will get turned in. THAT'S HOW FRICKIN' SMART I AM![/bragging]
School starts on Monday. I'm not really apprehensive about going back because I've been so BORED. I think most of my teachers are okay, and I'm top of the school. I was really busy at the beginning of summer but it quieted down very suddenly and the boredom set in.
IN CONCLUSION: School o school, mighty building of glass and stone, hall of education located on a street with a terrible name, I say to thee, BRING IT ON.
I wake up one day and look out the window to realize that we have 20 something pools in our backyard, instead of one (We don't have a pool at our house, and it is not a giant Victorian mansion like it is here). But it turns out that they're not new pools, but dams that Steve (as in Steve the ex-mod) has put up as the beginning of his "Massive siege of the internet."
My interpretation: I need to spend less time on the computer.
So I finally got my schedule for school (which stars next Monday). My classes go like this.
Language H (Honors, I don't know how many other schools do it like that, it's like AP)
As mentioned in the last thrilling installment of Scary Food's Blog, I went hiking for a few days. It wasn't very exciting and my feet are sore.
As we were driving home we stopped in Evanston Wyoming for lunch. I called my mom with one of my leader's cell phones and was surprised to find out that my parents each got a new car. I knew my mom wanted to get my dad a new car, but I didn't expect them to buy them so quickly. My mom's is a Ford Explorer and my dad got a Mercedes (A <_< MERCEDES!!!!) but I haven't seen his yet.
I went swimming today and while there some guy came up to me and the following conversation ensued.
Him: What grade are you in?
Him: Do you have a girlfriend?
And then he swam away.
I should note I have NO IDEA who this guy is, he looked vaguely familiar, but everyone does when they're wet.
I'm getting tired of people seeing something they can't do, and automatically assuming the person that did it has no life. Because no one is actually TALENTED at anything, they're just 40 year old me in their mom's basement with no social life.
