I read an educational article online about gears, and I learned about all the different types of gears. I was very bored and I was wondering about how they worked from something Masterforger said in the "What Grinds Your Gears" thread. I took a quiz after reading it and got 10/10, so I guess I learned well.

I learned not to wear flip-flops on a very hot day. I slipped on my own foot sweat and almost fell into the ivy.

That environmental science is the biggest waste of time in the world...the only reason to take it is because it is honors and therefore comes with a higher GPA

I re-learned, for the first time in 4 years, just how boring presidential debates really are. You know it has to be boring when the highlights of the event are Jim Lehrer's facial expressions.

I learned how to construct an M110 sniper rifle, mainly used by United States Army Marksmen. There are over 120 separate pieces that go into the rifle.

I re-learned that politics are a neccessary evil... every time I see a debate, or hear a politician talk, or read about all their good intentions... I shake my head and think that a politician's job is probably the closest thing to a modern con artist! Promise 'A', switch to 'B' and end up presenting 'C' to the people... *sigh*

How did you survive Ernie?! I would have died from the following symptoms:

Boredom
Stupidity
Brain Malfunction
and did I say stupidity?

I learned how the V-2 rocket ignites its fuel. Which is great, cause now I know how to build my model rocket.

I fell asleep. It saved my life.

I would have died from the following symptoms:


I would have only died of boredom, because the other symptoms would have required me to actually pay attention.

I learned today how amazing Billy Idol is. I had never seen any of his music videos and I was blown away by the energy behind every single one of them.
