Recently Acquired Knowledge

We all learn something new every day. Isn't it amazing that there is so much, uh...stuff out there to learn about that you can learn something new each day? Even then we can't learn it all, nor have we even begun to learn it all. Oh well. All I can say is take what you do know with you, and constantly investigate the universe to learn new stuff (deep thought for today). I learned something today. I can't think of what it is right now, but that's not what I want to talk about anyway. What I want to talk about is what I learned yesterday. What I learned is simple. It's not a secret to the universe or anything, however, it is very useful. This is the proper way to eat animal crackers...

1) Take a package of animal crackers and select, approximately, how many you would like to eat by reaching into the package and taking some out.

2) Separate the crackers into stacks, each species of animal in a different stack.

3) Arrange the stacks into alphabetical order according to the names of each animal.

4) Begin eating crackers from the stacks that have a greater number of crackers, starting with your least favorite animal and working up.

5) Once the stacks have an equal number of crackers, you may then proceed to eat them, again starting with your least favorite animal on up.

I'm sure you can apply this to many different foods, but I haven't learned that yet. Maybe that'll be tomorrow.

FREAK!!

That is of course a term of endearment. I think that is the greatest thing to ever learn.

By the way... you're weird.

Lindsay, I didn't know you read my blog. I am deeply touched. By the way, thank you for teaching me how to eat animal crackers. :)

This is crap! I can write a blog all about God or some issue of some importance and no one comments. You write about animal crackers and everyone comments. I am retiring from the blogging world.

Hey Melodie, maybe we should all comment to you on Mikey's blog. That way people would read it! :)

Animal crackers are bad for you. You should eat fruit and vegetables in this way.

Hey you punk,
Everyone knows that the correct way to eat animal crackers is to eat the head off first and then slowly nibble off their little legs. And then in one big bite, you gobble the rest of the body. You could combine the two ideas and have an extremely fun and LONG snack time! See ya! :)

You're so vain Mikey. This is like a "vanitas" blog

10/29/2004  
Blogger David said...

'Vanitas' as in the vanitas dutch paintings that used references to mortality to remind the viewer that the beautiful things in the paintings were only temporary?

10/29/2004  
Blogger Hinton said...

Yes David :-) Although I was focusing more on the vanity part of the compositions and not so much on the mortality part ;-)

And what's with Mikey commenting on his own blog? I mean seriously. That's like comment padding or something.

Comment padding, comment jealousy. What has the world come to?

Blogger David said...

Ming, the world is moving closer and closer to a utopian society where everyone has blogs. In which comments on these blogs will be the only measure of self-worth.

Hmmm...

I don't know about this comment frenzy. I mean, Sends is amazing (a stellular performance of a man, if you will), but let's not get carried away. I mean Melodie is a fragile flower; we should not be so quick to judge her lack of cemment-ability. She has feelings too, ya know!

Um, Comment No. 27... :)

You know that 28 is a perfect number...

Add up all of its factors, less itself, and the sum is equal to the number itself. 1 + 2 + 14 + 4 + 7 = 28

Yeah to comment number 28!

Thank you Micheal Fay. Comment #29.

Indeed, 28 is a perfect number. After digging up my old C code on the Speed supercomputer, I've calculated that the next perfect number is 496. Wonder how long it'll take it get there.

Well I don't know if this has anything to do with anything, but 31 divides perfectly into 496, 16 times...so yay for me!

I don't even remember what this post was originally about. But I do know a lot about the number 35.

OK I just wanted to catch up on what was going on.... I guess what I am going to read about is Animal Crackers! How the hell do you get 35 (well I guess 36 now!) posts on a blog about the proper way to eat an amimal craker???

All I have left to say is:
"Truely Brilliant!"

PS Duhhhh didn't anyone else separate them into their proper Domain, Kingdom, then Phyllum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and finally Species and then eat from there? I do!

Well I guess I'm a day late and a dollar short. I not really sure if that makes sense though cause I'm more like a month late and money really has nothing to do with this but let's just keep those fact to our selves.
