& now, for our feature presentation...

okay, so...we suck. we haven`t posted theme tuesday pictures yet, which we are definitely aware of. but have no fear - we will get to them.

so why am i posting today? because...i`m in my biology class (yes, i took a science elective! :O) & i`m bored out of my mind. steph is here next to me - she has no other classes today - & we`re kind of bored & watching everyone ask really dumb questions...if you`re a believer in the whole "there is no such thing as a dumb question" thing, then fine - we`re listening to dumb people asking questions that are supposedly not dumb.

i am pleased to be the one to introduce yet ANOTHER segment on aSoS. (yeah, then again, i`m always the one who comes up with new stuff for the blog...but this time, it hasn`t even been run by steph!)

you know how people always say, "you learn something new everyday" ?
well, i can vouch that i do: ...the weather. definitely new everyday. & alright, it isn`t exactly something *new*, but it`s my way of validating the above statement.
are you like me? wanting something NEW for real??? okay, well...i introduce:
(yes, because jae is more than just clothes & music & sickness (yes, i am still sick. sigh.); she has smarts, brains, experiences!!!)

so what`s it gonna be like? well, basically, three random facts every day (yes, every single day). for sure, one of them will be a random fact about jae - an embarrassing story, a thought i had, SOMETHING, anything - that i think you might enjoy knowing. yeah, i`m baring my soul on the internet for your enjoyment. rip me to shreds. (not literally.)
the rest of the facts will just be things i find interesting.

the other thing we`ll be incorporating more is some kind of 'song of the day'. yes, we do post heavily about what we listen to, but we`ll post a song every day too.
in this way, at least, there will be a post every day (though not always laden with pictures; my apologies). FOR YOUR READING PLEASURE!

so today`s three facts:
i) i never found out that irons actually were hot until grade four (that`s age nine). yeah, i should have known from the steam that was coming from it - steam, i knew, was hot - but i never actually found out until one day i decided to press my pinky against it. next thing i knew? blister. not fun. took me til age nine to learn that. not too bright, i am.

ii) when counting in binary, the last number will always alternate between 0 & 1. the second last number will always be in the pattern of 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1...

[bonus: 0-10 in binary: 0, 1, 10, 11, 100, 101, 110, 111, 1000, 1001, 1010]

iii) in hexadecimal, the first six letters of the alphabet are used to represent 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 & 15.

[bonus: 0-20 in hexadecimal: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14]

[why do i have so many math facts, when i`m in psychology & not even taking any math classes? i had to help a friend with his discrete math homework, & ended up learning binary & hexadecimal for it.]

today`s song of the day: adele, daydreamer.
- i`m learning this song on the guitar (trust me, it`s easy to pick, but then to sing along with get messed up easily), & it`s stuck in my head because i`ve been listening to it over & over &`s a great song, just listen to it & LOVE IT!

okay, on this? i know there haven`t been many comments lately because our posting is sporadic, & we apologize for that, but we`re trying to get things back up & running.

kisses, love, hugs, facts, songs, amusement for all,

There is a quote that says something like,"If there are no such things as stupid questions, what kind of questions do dumb people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask a question?"
