Words

Welcome to 2004. You like making conversation about what you think I like talking about, don't you? If our bodies are 70% water, why are we so solid? People like reading words a lot but don't like writing words too much. I think this is a form of laziness. Whoever was the person that invented men shaving their faces - screw you. If I wanted to change my hairstyle, I really don't have any idea what I want to do.

I find this interesting:

To figure out which eye is dominant for you, try this simple test.

Find something to use as a target on a wall about 10 feet away from you. You can use almost anything as an object to focus on.

With both eyes open, stick out your arm with your elbow extended and your thumb up.

Place your thumb so it appears to cover your target. Ideally, the focused object should be something that your thumb can cover.

Now, close your left eye then your right eye while watching your target.

Your target will be visible beside your thumb through one eye and hidden by your thumb through the other eye.

The eye that sees the thumb covering the target is your dominant eye.

Joke of the Week

Patient: "What are the chances of my recovering doctor?"
Doctor: "One hundred percent. Medical records show that nine out of ten
people die of the disease you have. "Yours is the tenth case I've treated;
the others all died."
