Here's a poem that I found amusing,


A Cloning Poem

Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was slightly gray,
It didn't have a father, just some borrowed DNA.

It sort of had a mother, though the ovum was on loan,
It was not so much a lambkin, as a little lamby clone.

And soon it had a fellow clone, and soon it had some more,
They followed her to school one day, all cramming through the door.

It made the children laugh and sing, the teachers found it droll,
There were too many lamby clones, for Mary to control.

No other could control the sheep, since their programs didn't vary,
So the scientists resolved it all, by simply cloning Mary.

But now they feel quite sheepish, those scientists unwary,
One problem solved, but what to do, with Mary, Mary, Mary!

This is a video about a polar bear cub that see its reflection in the mirror and thinks it's another bear. I thought it was cute.

This is known as a Tardigrade or"water bear". They are microscopic with the adults only reaching 1.5mm. They belong to the kingdom Animalia and there are over 1000 different known species. For more information visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardigrada I found it very helpful.

My friend told me about this, and clearly it's true. The cellphones actually cook the popcorn when they are all called at the same time. It doesn't matter whether or not they're set on ring or vibrate, it still works. Just image what they can do to your head when you answer them!

??Sea Monster??

It took me a long time to find this site again, a friend showed it to me a while back, but I thought that it was the most realistic and believible pictures that I have ever seen. Even if it's not a sea monster, then it's a real rotting carcass. To see the pictures click the link.

.:*Phobias*:.

We all fear something, but a phobia is taking fear to the extreme. Mostly everyone knows some of the common phobias; Arachnophobia is the most popular. I myself am an arctophobe, which is the fear of bears, as my best friend knows quite well, and I know exactly what gave me that fear. The weird thing is that Pandas don't apply to my fear. There are even stranger fears out there: Barophobia- Fear of gravity, Chrematophobia- Fear of money, Chronophobia- Fear of time, Heliophobia- Fear of the sun, and my personal favourite Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia- Fear of long words. The last one is just mean, the person who have the fear would be to afraid to even say the name of their fear. That's the same as putting a "s" in the word lispe. In any case, you should visit the link to find more phobias and for future reference I'm not making fun of the people who actually have those fears, I feel sorry for them, I was just sharing some of the less commonly known ones. http://phobialist.com/
