Random thoughts #20: YouTube, kid problems & solar system


My brother was trying to voice-dictate a Youtube search for “how to defeat someone in wrestling.” This is what came out:

Kid: “I fell. But nothing hurts.” Well, that’s good.

Observatory – for looking at/studying stars from outside. Planetarium – for looking at/studying stars from inside.

I would stand in line for this
There’s always room in life for this

A kindergartener had studied astronomy in a summer camp, and it showed: “What happens if the Earth falls in a big black hole?”

Little girls discussing how hard it is to pronounce words like “spaghetti,” “certificate,” and “photographer.” Totally hilarious!

My sister: “I pocket-dialed YouTube and it’s playing a Joseph Prince video!” #howdoesthatevenhappen

Catching Fire!
Katnisss going back to The Games
Needs an ally to win, and here’s the next name
It’s Haymitch, victor of the last Quarter Quell
Could there be a better ally than him? Pray tell
He’s studied The Games the past 25 years
“I’ll save you Katniss” -Peeta volunteers!!!
-Studio C’s “Peeta’s Song” (most hilarious way ever to pick holes in the Hunger Games 😛 )

A convo among kids 10 and under on music consisted of the singing of snippets of secular songs and the following words. Taylor Swift. Michael Jackson. Wrecking Ball. Bruno Marx. “Really gross.” “Terribly inappropriate.” Parents, PLEASE keep track of what your kids are listening to.

Ahhh, the diversity of Southern California. White, Black, Oriental, Mexican, Indian, Middle-Eastern…it’s wonderful to see so many different people anywhere you go.

The brave heart never stands alone

Your random alligator fact of the day: “Alligators have even been known to survive freezing conditions.  They have been known to rise to the surface if the water is about to freeze, with their nostrils above the surface.  This allows them to breathe through the ice as it forms.  In extreme cases, they may get frozen to the surface of the pond for several days and then swim free once the ice melts.” 

“I never study.”
“Then how do you pass?”
“Just sheer knowledge.”

Finally got to watch Interstellar. Mind-blowing!

The T-shirts kids are wearing nowadays reflect what they’re getting taught. And I gotta say, we’re failing our kids by clothing them with these egotistical, self-centered, excuse giving messages:
“It must be the candy talking”
“The sarcasm is strong with this one”
“I tried being good, but I got distracted”
“Perfect princess”
“Sorry, I always win”
“Shake it off”
“Awesome is my middle name”
“Always looking good”
“I’m sassy, cool and sweet”
“Give me space”
“Even my swag has swag”
“Winning isn’t everything, it’s just what I do”
“My swag gets the most likes”
“It’s not that I forget, it’s just that I don’t care”
“Princess of everything”

The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein.
