A Little Fun

The "check engine" light came on in my car a little while ago, and so I decided to leave my car at home the last time I was there to get fixed. I would then pick it up again a week later and everything would be perfect. Well, when I called my mom the next day for an update on what was wrong, she replied saying "I have some bad news."
Thinking, "oh man this must be some check engine light problem" I responded rather confused "what do you mean?"
"I'm going to need your car for another week."
"Why, what's the bad news?"
Apparently, Bobby had forgotten my car was in the driveway and backed his truck over it while leaving for work, in the process causing $3000 worth of damage. Hmm, well that's really interesting. I'll need a new hood, grill, headlight, and fender. Cool.
Well actually, it is cool, because I get to drive my mom's 1997 Subaru Outback Sport. I'm having tons of fun with the all-wheel-drive capabilities. In case this is mom reading, what I meant to say is that I'm glad I have all wheel drive because I feel so safe and secure. :)

I had some more fun this past Tuesday night at the Comedy Caravan. About a month ago, Momo decided that he would apply for a 3 minute spot there to do a little stand up act. Well, he did, and it was great although I think I lost about 5 years of my life due to second hand smoke.

A Tribute

It was sad driving home last weekend. Not because I don't like going home, but because highway 27 is being widened running from Alexandria down towards Grants Lick, and I'm sure eventually down past my house. We are very lucky to live a couple miles off 27, but it's still a gloomy sight to see one whole side of the road totally barren where many trees once stood. I feel really bad for all those people who live next to the highway because their house will soon have to be destroyed. I figure it's only a matter of time before the new widened road brings more development to the town of Grant's Lick, and what now is lush and green will not be anymore.

I thought I would make a tribute to my home while it is still beautiful. Ahh, there's no place like home.

Deep Thoughts

I've been thinking a lot about things lately...both times have been while I was doing homework. I'm not talking about my thought on how much steel a beam with a hole in it needs or how much water each person uses per day, but about...other things.

The first thing that crossed my mind was: I think I would rather be shot with a real bullet versus a rubber bullet. My reasoning was drawn from the movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. The Sheriff mentions that he would like to cut Robin's heart out "with a spoon." His not so bright cousin asks him, "Why a spoon, cousin? Why not an axe?" The sheriff angrily replies, "Because it's dull you twit. It'll hurt more." That pretty much sums up my reasoning right there. Now, excluding the fact that I get shot in any vital part of my body, I think I will come out ahead. :)

The second thought I had was when I was working on economics homework and was using the value of "e" (2.718281828...) . Now, this is a very mysterious number. It is obtained as shown below.
Now wouldn't you think the answer to this would be 1? The limit as n approaches infinity of 1/n is 0. 1+0=0. 1 raised to infinity equals 1. Shouldn't the answer be 1? NO! It is this mysterious number. It's like it popped out of thin air. And it is used to solve more things than I can think of or feel like mentioning. After thinking on this awhile, I realized that this number must be the key to the universe. Maybe if I study it long enough, I will find all the answers. Let me know if you figure out anything.
