{Sun, Mar 2926, '09}   Earth Hour ’09

Earth Hour is a global event to try to save planet Earth.  Today, March 28, 2009, turn off all your electronics between the hours of 8:30 and 9:30 pm. Together, we can make a huge difference! I’ll keep editing this post every so often when I have stuff to add, so stay tuned!

8:33 pm: I want to make a video or take a picture or something to remember this day later… but the camera battery is taking FOREVER to recharge! And my sister is in the shower and won’t turn off the light. And I can’t explain Earth hour to my grandma doing Tai Chi downstairs, so that light’s on…

9:06 Going for a walk (I hope).  I’m bringing my camera to do a 12 second challenge about what to do during Earth Hour. I also have a flashlight that can be recharged by shaking it. i’m going to play with it outside. 🙂 Aah, the open air smells nice…


{Tue, Mar 2457, '09}   Math and Science?

Some people say that math and science are the same thing. If that were the case, then equations solved in both would wind up with the same answer, right?

My friend and I were arguing about what H2O+H2O was. In math, it would be H4O2, which is what my friend said. I went with the science point of view, being that H2O+H2O would be 2H2O. We ran all over the hallway arguing about it, and explained it to every science and math teacher we came across. They all agreed with me. 🙂 But we were late for our next class (band). 😦 But we explained it to our band teacher and he said both math and science were different and had different answers for the problem.

But here’s another problem:

When you look at the sun for too long, you go blind. That means eye+sun=-eye, right? But if that is true, then is sun a negative number? Wouldn’t sun have to be -2eye? So then the sun is the opposite of your two eyes…

Comment if you have a good answer, because none of us get it.


Added tidbit, 4-29-10: I love “math” that doesn’t make sense. Here’s one of my favorite problems:

Pissed on=Pissed off. Therefore, on=off.

{Tue, Mar 1734, '09}   St. Baldricks

There is an organization named St. Baldricks, and what it does is raise money for children with cancer. They hold events near St. Patrick’s Day, and shave the heads of voulenteers who want to show their support. My school raised over twice as much as we expected (still counting, baby), and the best part is that it is all going to help kids.

Last night was the shaving ceremony. All the voulenteers left bald. There were guest speakers, comedy acts, clowns, bagpipes, everything! It was amazing, and I know it really helped.
