i knew some stuff about leatherback sea turtles because I had participated in the first Great Turtle Race in 2007
that was before I watched stephen colbert, so I was rooting for Billie (sponsored by the Offield Center for Billfish Studies). I told my dad (who had heard about it on the Colbert Report but didn’t think it was serious), and he joined in and backed Stephanie Coburtle.
By a neat coincidence, Billie and Stephanie Coburtle were constantly battling for first place. Billie won, Stephanie came in second (disappointing her human father) and a handful of the contestants decided to go somewhere else.
there was one kid who was pretty cool and started talking to me about sea turtles though
he saw my (~3-foot-long) sand turtle and asked if it was bigger than a real one because he had gone to the Waikiki Aquarium and seen their turtles, which were about a foot long. so I explained that the aquarium’s turtles were young’uns, and that leatherback sea turtles get to be a good deal larger (~6 feet long) than the one I made
We were at school and she started to casually drop in that she liked comics/games/”geek stuff”, at the time I was wearing an iroman shirt. Deeper into the conversation i found that she didn’t know what I meant when I was referring to anything about the characters. When I questioned her about it a few days later she admitted that she had really just said it to get to know me better.
We ended up dating and while we were dating she got really into comics, DC especially, and found out that she really did enjoy the things she first said she did. I took her to her first convention. She met another guy there and ended up breaking up with me for him.
I went on to discover I was gay and fucked her brother.
Moral of the story. Comics lead to sex in the most unexpected ways.
Dear (prof name), I was curious as to your position on the possibility of me doing our project on the examination of the different ways soil types and qualities can affect your excess corpse disposal activities. Sincerely, Soywroo (not a hamster).
P.S. this is definitely for the project and not for personal/business purposes
maybe something showing which types of soil is best for which types of businesses? building versus growing (and which kinds of growing)
I was thinking about doing something like that, but it’s hard to fit it all on a mug, and assuming the “target buyers” are people who work in soils, it’s not particularly useful or fun to look at while drinking your morning coffee.
If I were making a poster, I’d probably go with that, but mugs have to be a little different. Mugs are needy :/
I need to do a final project for a soils/land use class and it’s super open-ended and pretty much the only guidelines are that it has to be related to soils AND land use
I was thinking of making a couple of mug designs, such as:
a diagram of common soil horizons
what kinds of plants can be grown on certain soil types
which soils are best for burying a body in
but only the last two involve land use, I don’t know how hunky-dory the professor will be with the last one (plus, I don’t know much about it or where to find out more), and I really don’t want to make more than 2, so… any ideas on how I could show land use on a mug?
First Doctor:[Companions Katarina and Sara Kingdom die] [makes wonderful emotional speech about them before moving on]
Fifth Doctor:[Companion Adric dies horribly] [Talks about how they must move on and how tragic it is but that they must not mourn too long]
Sixth Doctor:[Believes Companion Peri has died] [Takes a few hours to mourn before moving on and attempting to save his life while on trial]
Tenth Doctor:[Rose is sent to another universe] [spends the next 2 seasons treating his companions like crap comparing them to Rose and how they aren't as good as her and being angsty and whiny. And only stops when he is able to see her again]
