Beginning With Adam's Atoms

All the matter that makes up the human race can fit into a sugar cube.  This is because atoms are mostly empty space and if you crammed all the atoms in all human beings together -without any wasted space - the total wouldn't be any bigger than a sugar cube.

However, that sugar cube would weigh 5 billion tons!

Sultans of Swing Cover

I've seen some unusual instruments used in covers, but never before have I seen a Gayageum, a traditional Korean zither-like string instrument. Check out more from Luna Lee on her YouTube channel for more covers.

You'd have to admit, she's got Seoul.

The Martini Test

The Martini Test

You are a deeply emotional person. You are easily moved to tears and laughter.

Some people may accuse you of being moody, but you can't help that you feel deeply.

You believe that you know what's right deep down in your heart. You know your destiny.

You consider yourself a spiritual person. You often think about what your life means to others.

I Guess That's Why

He's called "The King of the Jungle". 

From today's trivia calendar: 

A lion sleeps for 20 hours a day.

And this one from last week - I didn't post it because while it's a natural thing, I did think it was a little inappropriate for my "G" rated blog:

(and especially considering the jokes I could have made about it)

Lions sometimes mate up to 40 times a day.

OK, I'm not great at math, but if a lion is only awake for four hours each day and in that time he's mating up to 40 times...no wonder he sleeps most of the day away.

Heat Wave - Martha & the Vandellas

One of the best rock 'n roll songs of all time.

Note: a bump from July '08 (and think that was a bump from a year previous - I *think* this is one of the first music vids I posted)

Why the bump? Because it's HOT here!

Another bump, even though it's not that hot today. I just like the tune.

How Happy Are You?

You Are 64% Happy

You are a very happy person. Generally, you feel content and that all is right with the world.

Occasionally, you have a down day - but you have the ability to pick yourself right back up.

In The Summertime - Mungo Jerry

In honor of the first day of summer.

This song makes me happy, but it also makes me sad that I can remember when it came out in 1970.

Other than it urging the listener to drink and drive - "have a drink, have a drive, go out and see what you can find" - it's a cool tune.

This was a "bump" from last year; I had posted the video on my Facebook wall earlier and thought I'd just come here and force it to the top of the page again. When doing a search, I found another, different version of this tune I had posted back in 2008.

Sorry, but it's a cool song, no matter how many times I post or bump it up!

The Weight - The Band

That's Heavy, Man

Every year, the Earth becomes about twelve tons heavier because of meteorites landing.

The First Thing I Ever Bought

Well, one of the first things I ever bought with my own hard-earned money. I also bought a bunch of fireworks.
From Top of Texas Gazette

I bought the album, not the girl. She looked even better inside the cover.

Angry Spam

This was in my spam folder this morning, and I'd have to say it's a novel approach to getting someone to click on a link.

I will obfuscate some of the cursing with hash tags / # # but I found it odd that the spammer did it with asterisks / *** on the "F bombs" they dropped. I mean...in for a penny, in for a pound, right?  Why do it on the F bombs but not the other equally offensive cursing?

The subject line was this: I WILL REPORT YOU. YOU PIECE OF S##T...F.U..

Like I said, it got my attention, more than "Remember me and the passionate night we spent together?" or "Grow It Larger!"spam I normally get.

Stop stalking me and my friend or I will report you. You piece of s##t, c##k-su##er douche. I do not know why you are doing this! You slept together once, only once. It does not mean anything. Have not you heard of hook up?  So, f*** off and leave us alone

F*** You.

How did I know it was spam? Well, if someone is THAT angry, they're more likely to come see you in person and punch you in the nose. Personally, I'd rather spend the night in jail than have my ISP ban me forever for sending out threats. Secondly, I don't know anyone named Riley Johnson. Third, if the spammer only knew how long it had been since I last had a "hook up" or slept with anyone "only once" (or at all), they'd not bother sending me any spam.

Plus, whoever it is Riley is with, he/she sure is cheating a LOT on him.

Color Me Smooth

You Are Smooth
You're the type of person who can get away with anything. People always like you no matter what.

You are totally irresistible. You can be as quirky, colorful, and wild as you want to be!

You enjoy taking risks, and you've made a few big miscalculations over the years. You're not afraid to mess up.

Your mistakes just give you character. People love that you're perfectly imperfect. You're happy with yourself, and that's all that matters.

Can You Hear Me Now?

Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, never phoned his wife or his mother.

They were both deaf.

And, in case you didn't get the rather insensitive joke in the title of this post, here's its origin:

...although he's since gone over to Sprint.

And a ToTG public service announcement:  if someone calls you and asks you a question or speaks very faintly and you complain they need to speak up and they "make an adjustment" and in a louder voice "Can you hear me now?", do NOT say "Yes." which might lead to them using that to change your long-distance service.   Some sources on the 'net say it's not a proven scam, but best to not take chances.  At the least, you'll be telling the possible scammer on the other end of the line that it's a working phone number. 

Personally, if I don't recognize the number, I don't answer.

You've Got Another Thing Comin'-Judas Priest

A "bump" because the original video had been taken down.

It's also worth a bump because it's such a kick-ass tune.
