    Current mood:Insomnia...
    Current music:The isane neighbor blaring Whittney Houston at 2AM Grrr

    Boring Facts
    Sleeeeep... gooootoooo sleeeep.... 3 .... 2.... 1.....

    Number of physicians in the U.S. = 700,000
    Accidental deaths per year by U.S physicians = 120,000
    Accidental deaths per physician = 0.1714
    Source: U.S. Department Of Health And Human Services

    Number of gun owners in the U.S. = 80,000,000
    Accidental deaths per year by handguns = 1,500
    Accidental deaths per gun owner = 0.00001875
    Source: U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms

    Apparently doctors are about 9150 times more dangerous that your typical American gun owner. Maybe this is why it's called practicing medicine.

    Think Christopher Columbus is a hero? Think again.

    If you thought Columbus had to convince people the world was round—you've been had by a writer named Washington Irving. In 1828, he wrote an extremely popular book about Columbus. He described dramatic debates and arguments where the magnificient Chris had to win over disbelieving, religious scholars who thought you would fall off the world into hells abyss.

    Actually, Aristotle proved the earth was round some two thousand years earlier pointing out the curved shadow it casts on the moon. By Columbus' time, people took it for granted. The real argument was over the size of the ocean—and his prediction was miserably short and the expedition would have soon failed within days had land not been sighted when it was.

    In other news, I'm incredibly tired.. bored.. and my neighbor insists on playing Whittney Houston LOUD over... and over... and over again. This is my next door neighbor, whos house is some 30 or 40 feet away? How would she like it if I blared shitty music when she tried to sleep? The same song... OVER and OVER again. Will she ever get bored of it? That's it.. I'm downloading polka music and pointing my speakers out an open window towards her house.

    If only I had earplugs... someone shoot me. You know what it is? She has her pimple faced, 20 year old boyfriend over. The music is turned up that loud so it can hide his screams as he sees her large framed, 40+ year old body undress. (shudders) I don't know whats worse, this music blaring or the horrible images that just flashed through my head. Help.

ewwwwwwww! WHY is a 20 year old and a 40+ year old toghether!? *shivers*

whitney houston is great :D IF it's not played over.. and over.. for a life time. I like the idea of pointing spearkers out the open window towards somebody's house, and blasting music at 2am. The only problem is that I'm most likely sleeping at 2am.

I KNEW THAT! I KNEW THAT! The earth is round because of the moon thing. *feels smart* *cough* Taking 2 astronomy classes this semester might be the trick.. but hey! I learned something from class! That's always good :D

doctors=evil. i hate doctors, and anything that has to do with the smell of the doctor's office.. *passes out*
