Just got up. It would be cool to have a PC by my bed at home (like I do here) so I could post any epiphanies I have had in my slumber. Unfortunately, there'll be none of those today. :-(
Allergies are killing me. Is there an ENT in the house? My eyes have been so watery that when I got up, they were crustier than a deep-dish, no cheese pizza. Arrrghhh, quoth the author.
Wow two weeks have gone by since the start-up of this blog. The last week has flown by faster than an unleaden swallow. And only two weeks 'til camp starts. You'll get an intro to the camp soon enough...
Oh yeah, that America vs. The World thing I wrote? The missing one was the annoyingly vague (to a foreigner at least) incriptions on much of our coinage. This was pointed out in the last RandomThought email by Steven Morgan Freeman. One would expect the number of cents each of our metallic pieces of currency to be printed clearly, right? Well, check out the penny: there's no Number 1 on it at all. Sure, it says "One Cent," but that won't be of too much help to a non-English speaker*. Worse still is the dime, which, believe it or not, does not say how much it is worth! All it says is "One Dime." According to Mr. Friedman, all of the coins he's seen from across the globe (he's quite a traveler, you know) have the Arabic number of their value. But ours are goofy.
