Funny Monday!

Shamelessly stolen from Slowtwitch today....

He's on a break!



I didn't know whether to laugh or cry at this one....

I laughed at the bike picture. As far as Ms. South Carolina goes, it is embarrassing the way people are reacting to this. We really need to be a bit more humble :-)

It's not that what she said is stupid, it's just that the answer is soaked in irony top to bottom. US students have an utter lack of knowledge of the world around them. And I am not saying I was any better. It's the sad reality of the egocentric state of education in this country.

I bet you that AC Slater is like 'Yes, this is my kind of woman!"

I weep for the future of America. I think I was more annoyed that she didn't even try to answer the question after "many don't have maps".

Wes said...

LOL. I wasn't judging you :-) I was just reflecting on my embarrassment for her, her answer, and the same reasons you give for the edumacational system in this country. There will always be people who just don't care...

I heard that on the radio yesterday, on my way to school. AWFUL! Could she have made herself sound more stupid?

I knew you would be able to awnser my RLS question :-)

The pic you "borrowed" from slowtwitch reminds me of an old lady we rode by today. She was heading in the opposite direction on an old, steel, bike. It was all tricked out with lamps, racks, etc. She had to be about 80 years old. Awesome.

'Twas nice riding with you today. It's hard to tell you spend more time in scrubs than in the saddle these days....good thing for me, or I'd probably have been blown off your wheel ;-0

Cheers,
B

Oh, and in case you were wondering, dragonfruit is not one fruit, per se, but comes from several different cactus species that are native to Mexico, Central and South America. It is high in antioxidents, rich in Vit. C, fiber, and many minerals...but I wouldn't recomend it as a watered down sugar flavored beverage. Probably much better consumed raw :-)
