Dating A Tall Man

There is a new tallest man in the world.

He is 8 foot 1 inch tall. The Guinness World Records declared him the tallest man. (I still wonder if he is anatomically proportional).

He has mentioned that he is hoping his new fame will cause him to get a girlfriend: "I want to get married. It’s really difficult to find a girlfriend. They are usually scared of me."

Here is the link: Link

If you were asked out, would you avoid a date just because the person was 8 foot 1 inch tall?

Save the Penis!

Doctors are saying that the tolet should be left open to help the penises of young male toddlers.

Reason: Tolet seats are falling down on newly trained toddlers and reports on four boys (in Britian) between the ages of 2 and 4 to have over night stays in hospitals. One doctor says,

"As Christmas approaches many families will be visiting relatives and friends and their recently toilet-trained toddlers will be keen to show how grown-up they are by going to the toilet on their own," Philip said. "It is important that parents check out the toilet seats in advance, not to mention the ones they have in their own homes, and accompany their children if necessary."

So my question today is do you leave the seat up or down? If you have kids that a potty trained already did you ever have this problem?

The Holiday Spirit

In the spirit of giving many people give out whatever they seem to think others will enjoy, in some cases its right the opposite. They are giving out what they themselves didn't particularly care for, this is known as "regifting". Regifting is when you wrap up a gift that you have recieved at some point and decided that you didn't like it but someone you know will. So you wrap it up and give it to that person, they might even do the same thing.

There are a few "rules" that you should know about regifting:

  1. Do update the wrapping. One of most common regifting give aways (other than leaving the previous gift card attached) is to regift in the original, now crinkled and possibly ripped wrapping paper or box.

  2. Do keep track of who gave it to you first. Keep a small notebook of who gave you what, this way you don't give back a gift that you recieved to the exact same person. That is a just a problem/fight waiting to happen.

  3. Do have the courtesy to clean your regifts. Some hand-me-downs can be passed off as regifts if the packaging is intact, like the wine glasses you've belatedly decided to share with a loved one. Just wash the lipstick off the rim, okay.

  4. Don't give partially used gift cards. As technology pushes the envelope of regifting possibilities, the chance of looking like a ninny only grows. Don't give a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble that has $14.56 left on it. Would you give a pie with a slice taken out of it? I would hope not.

Does this make that gift any less special or is it just a good way to save some money and to actually allow someone to benefit from something that would otherwise be trashed? Do you think this is all in bad or good sport?

Expanding Our Horizons

Lately, I have been hearing some talk that many people believe that we should stop our searches/investigations through-out the galaxy and try to focus in on the issues here on our own planet. While I understand that we are going through some tough times here in the United States, I don't think that means that we should stop our investigations to other reaches or our universe. We need to understand other planets and other species before we can fully understand ourselves - at least this is the way that I see it. We don't need to give up the search for other live forms. What if something was to happen to our planet from to must pollution - not saying that it would be soon, however, it wouldn't hurt to look now. Imagine the idea of just hearing on the news one day that they have located a distant planet that could hold oxygen, carbon, etc. , to hear that we could live there! Nothing is impossible, nothing - it could happen at anytime. On the other side of the discussion, I do see how this could be taking up a lot of money, its not cheap to send a giant chunck of metal into space. I was reading up on the cost of a launch itself not for a spaceship but a satellite launch can cost anywhere between $50 million and $400 million. And an entire shuttle mission costs half a billion dollars (a shuttle mission could easily carry several satellites into orbit). This money could go to helping people here in our country, this money could help our several thousands of familys and friends get back on there feet. If not that it could go to helping the united states get "some what" out of debt to other countries by paying back some of the money that we owe.
Anywyas, my question to you is - Do you think we should continue the search through space or stop and take care of some money issues here?

Turn Around.

A few days ago I was told about this site, see I have been looking for a place to write down my thoughts and several questions - I have many. I don't like so much writing them down in just my journal because I want to hear some other solutions, situations, or answers. I can't have any of those if I just keep them to myself. I have a Myspace but its just so crowded with inmature teens trying to have there 15 minutes of fame. I'm looking for real answers from real people, not "OMG UR SO HOTT!" (The texting language should only be used for texting.)
