I might be a scientist one day, so yeah… I should write about that.

OMG, The World Just Ended!!

Or all the nutjobs were just proven wrong. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva has successfully collided its beams for the first time at world record speeds. The LHC has had a lot of problems and the collision of the beams have been delayed numerous times, but finally it was successful!

Some of the questions Cern hopes the LHC will be able to answer is how the universe looked just a millisecond after the big bang, if there actually is a so called “God Particle”, and how many chucks could a wood chuck chuck? Some of life and science’s big questions. I for one am excited, and hopefully some real cool things will come out of this big ass donut.

Here is the press release from Cern:

NASA Finds Life 600 feet Under Antarctica

This tiny little shrimp looking organism has been found deep down under Antarctica. The scientists found the amphipod when they lowered a video camera under the ice to, for the first time, explore the underside of the Antarctic ice.¬†Normally life should not be able to live under such extreme conditions, so this is quite the discovery. One of the scientists described their feelings about the discovery “We were just gaga over it,”.¬†Apparently that means they were very excited about the discovery since they put their poker faces on, rode on the drill like a disco stick, and just danced.

This is especially interesting to me since I’ve been to antarctica once. Yes it was this fishing trip my uncle Joe took me on. I remember it so well because we had to bring this long ass drill in order to get down to the water. And when it was time for lunch he had brought these great tasting shrimp, I remember dropping one down the fishing hole, it took such a long time before I heard… wait a minute… Crap.

Welcome To My Place

This post was originally called “Hello World”, and I guess that is quite an appropriate way of starting the first post of a blog. So without further ado, Hello World! I’m broadcasting from and to the internets today because I believe that I have something to say. Something that might interest you, something that might intrigue you. Or something that will offend you so immensely that you never want to come back and visit this web page ever again. It’s all in your mind, how you perceive the world, or even how you were raised. Either way, what I have to say is extremely important, and it will be said with my head held high.

Dear World… I am a homosexual. How big of a homosexual, you might ask. Well, a pretty big one, I would answer. Oh god, not another one of those gay blogs with pink backgrounds and gossip about reality TV shows, and celebrities, you might think. And I’m here to tell you that that is exactly what this blog is. Another gay blog with content that really doesn’t matter in the end. Who cares about how ugly the contestants on America’s Next Top Model was this season (they were pretty ugly actually)? Well, I’m here to tell you that gay people do. Why? Because gay people are a breed of their own, which is kind of funny since we’re not known to breed, but this breed is indeed a very special branch on the tree that is humanity. I’m sorry if I disappointed you with my skills in writing, I lured you in with an interesting opening, and then in the end this is just going to be another blog about stupid shit that only stupid people care about. Well… I guess I just fooled you yet again. Man, this blog already has more twists and turns than the average Lost episode.

Paragraph three, the end of the beginning. This blog will not, I repeat, WILL NOT, be another blog about celebrity gossip, or fashion, or reality TV. No, this blog will be about what I like. So what do I like? Let’s see, I like my hubby Rick, I like videogames, I like politics, I like technology, I like science, I like smart humor, I like music, I like amusement parks, and I like… like. If I like it, I can bet you that it will be found on this page at one time or another. If I like you, you might even end up here, who knows? But for now, I am the only one that will be here, but hopefully that will change soon.
