Sympathy For the Adolescence


You have to feel bad for elementary students.  I mean we spent our whole lives trying to remember the names of nine planets only to find out that Pluto was never a planet.  Now we have 40 planets.  Will elementary students really retain the names of all 40 planets?  Hard to say.  Heck I can't even recall all 44 U.S. Presidents off the top of my head.  Sorry kids but your chapter on the solar system just became its own book.  Like I said from the start, I feel bad.

An Update Worth Mentioning in 30 Seconds.


What is going through my head ATM:

  1. Holy cow we have 32 new planets all thanks to a technology called HARPS. Maybe all those UFO sightings do exist after all.
  2. This past week a boy who was believed to be in a hot air balloon put millions at a higher risk of anxiety after authorities revealed that the balloon was EMPTY. Later the family found the child hiding in the attic. Now there is a video game based on the count of events that never really happened.
  3. Congress is fighting to end the likes of the BCS. If you think about it, it clearly makes no sense to keep it. The BCS is financially limiting, vastly outdated, and incredibly illogical to the rise of College Football. Sure Obama is taking heat for concerning about the subject but I think he is preventing aneurysms from people trying to make sense of the BCS ranking system.
  4. I wonder if Derrick Rose is going to play in the Season Opener vs the Spurs because I bought tickets!! My website CHIKOREAN.COM is giving away two free tickets!!
  5. Onstar's '09 model now has the ability to turn engines off. Apparently a high speed chase ended safely after a GM car was stolen and tracked through GPS. Cool.
  6. I'm creating a new website, which remains to be a secret until it is finished. If you love basketball, you are going to love it!
  7. I find it hilarious that most company firms are beginning to Skype interview candidates for Round 1 of interviews. This saves companies thousands of dollars by not having to pay for the expenses of a candidate that the company is not interested in.
  8. It's amazing and uplifting that a woman's tooth brought her blind vision back to normal. Absolutely inspirational. Google it sometime.

Isn't this the truth?
