No, it’s not a new recipe from the Projectile Vomitting Is An Art Foundation, but the results of a teacher’s experiment gone wrong. A teacher, to demonstrate the body’s ability to break down acid in milk, had students drink large quantities of milk, resulting in 13 out of 45 students vomitting the contents of their abdominal pouches.
Parents are upset that this occurred and now the teacher is suspended from teaching until a verdict is reached on what happened. Apparently parents don’t appreciate first-hand experience for their children anymore as a teaching lesson. The teacher is getting support from the students though, even the ones that puked. After all, how many times do you get rewarded an A+ for puking?
I’m a big fan of the Atlanta Braves (Major Leagues baseball for those of you not in the know) and one of the most exciting player to come to the team since Chipper Jones joined is Gary Sheffield. Now I’m hearing stories that the New York Yankees, and his uncle, Dwight Gooden (another famous player), want to bring him over. As an analyst said last night, it’s hard to resist when the Yankees want you.
If the Braves lose Sheffield, then they may want to kiss hopes of reaching the World Series goodbye next year. The man is exciting, he’s superb, and he enhances a team tenfold when he belongs to it. If the media weren’t so anally trendy and jump on bandwagons so easily, Sheffield or at least Albert Pujols should’ve won the MVP, not Barry Bonds. The man hits a lot of homeruns, but that’s about it! Sheffield and Pujols does it all, defense, stealing bases, making everyone on their team better.
If the Braves lose Sheffield, the Braves just won’t be as exciting as they were this year. Here’s hoping they reach deep in their pockets this time around.
We all hate spam, unless you’re a spammer, then you love it. Why, you ask, do spammers love it? Surely they can’t make money on it since noone falls for it anymore, least of all you. That’s not entirely true though. Digest this: a spammer sends out 1.5 million emails within a span of 15 minutes, and out of that 1.5 million, in the worst case scenario, only 1% opens the email and think it’s legit and worthy of their time. You do the math. That’s enough right there to make any spammer enough money to fool him into thinking he’s doing his “job”.
Michael Pick has a post on his weblog delving even further into why spammers do what they do and why they aren’t going to go away anytime soon (as much as we’d love to tie them up to a tree and shoot them with BB guns).
