What are the worst things in life?
"Dad why are there good things and bad things?" The father looked at his song and took a breath. "Life is like a rainbow, you have to go through the rain to get the rainbow, Without the bad things, there can't be good things."
What are the worst things in life? Well, I think:
-A family member or loved one dying
-a broken heart
-when you find out your husband/wife has had an affair
What do you think are the worst things in life?
What about the best things in life?
-Family and Friends
And of course: The Internet! (Just Kidding!)
What do you think?

|"We base our Self value on certain things and feel like we're no good when we don't those things."|
Sometimes we base our Self-Value on certain things. Friends and Family sometimes can convince us what is "Important" and the better we are if we are or/and have that thing.
Some people place their self-value on how much money they have. Or if they have a lot of "Toys" (Cars, Tvs, Computers etc.) Sometimes someone will think they are better if they have more of the oppisite sex chasing after them. Some people think they are more important and better if they have certain things. If a friend bases their self value on certain things, you might too.
But, just think about it for a second.... Why is this important?
And we think if we don't have these things, we aren't good enough...
But, if we shouldn't base our self-value on these things and what we're worth on those things? What should we base it on?
Well, I think you should just try to do your best and life. And live it to the fullest, you shouldn't have to judge yourself if you don't have certain things, So your self value should really just be accepting yourself and for who YOU are. Not what YOU have.

The Teachers and principals act confident of their internet security, so confident they don't bother to check it. Well there is 500 students, who wants to sit at a desk all day and check all the website history. Besides: All the Bad Sites are blocked! You tube, Face book, You know it! Meanwhile we have students in Room 203 gathered around the small monitor watching a funny youtube video. Think again Teachers, your security may be easily bypassed. Kids these days know how to get around it!
The Worst One:
Lots of school networks have this "Security," this is the easiest to get passed. The Kids just have to type in a few words in google and BAM!
For some networks that block Youtube: Most students go to google type the name of the video and click "Videos." Which allows them to view the video without actually going to youtube.
Since certain URLS are blocked:
www.myspace.com A Student might type in myspace.com/profile/login or so on and so on.
So you may want to rethink your security blocks...

First lets go over the genes:
There is something called Dominant genes, that beat the recessive gene.
So: When a baby is born, genes from the parents come,
Say both of the parents give Recessive Genes, than the child will get that trait, but if one parent gives the child Recessive Gene, while the other gives a Dominant, the child will get the Dominant Trait,
In this case:
Dominant is Brown Hair, while Recessive is Blond hair. So, the point is there is less blonds and more brunettes.
So why does the media tell us Blonds have more fun?
Well, in movies, the blond girl is always the one that gets what she wants, is rich, has all the guys and so on.
So, this is telling women that "You will have a better life if you are Blond" So, since there is less Blonds, the Darker haired Women are more likely to get their hair dyed blond so they get this "Life."
See the point of the Blonds have more fun thing? The Point is hair dye=Money.
Because its also harder and more expensive to dye your hair blond, than it is to dye it darker. But if the media was really smart they would make it:
Reds have more fun! Since Red hair is even rarer.
To Let you know, the whole Blonds have more fun thing is a lie. Come on? How can the color of your hair determine how much fun you have?
For a list of Recessive and Dominant Genes:

Some say they have an odd shape, and the video of them chasing after children doesn't help with their image,
It took 40 people and 70 million pounds to make these mascots, It also looks like it was made by second graders, Which It was, kind of. The makers took drawings from second graders and put them together,
"the mascots have one eye (it's a camera lens to see the world) and yellow lights on tops of their heads (an homage to London taxicabs)," Yahoo
They have no race, gender, or feet, Its supposed to be some kind of "Aimed at everyone!" thing, not that everyone can relate to a One-Eyed Creature, that has a camera lens for eyes, likes chasing after children, and one has a weird blue patch....
On some articles, some people were commenting on the "Blue Patch" the monster has. And others were saying "Oh ya! We are so going to buy our kids some clothes with these monsters on them!"
In My opinion, these mascots were a waste of money. Look at the 70 million pounds that they are throwing out!
Its a "Anti-Virus" program that puts fake viruses on your computer. I had the unlucky encounter of this nasty virus.
You can't delete it, When you delete the shortcut it pops back up again, along with "WARNINGS!" Along with putting the fake viruses on, it also shuts down your other anti-virus programs, and when you try to remove its fake viruses, it puts more on. If this keeps going, the virus files will jam up your hard drive causing all your other info to be deleted.
Its also Fraud: It wants you to pay $50 to remove these fake viruses, it has put on itself.
But never fear! There is a way to delete this nasty Virus!
The program is called Malewarebytes, When I had this virus, this program cleared it all up!
So, you may want to download Mal ware Bytes if you have security Engine, or to prevent it!

Let us explore Kenya, In Pictures, because as they say "A Picture is worth a 1000 words!" A breeze blows, throwing fistfuls of snow across Mount Kenya which is cutting into the perfect blue sky. There is not much snow in Kenya, so the Mountain provides a rare sight.
Mount Kenya's snow covered peaks are visible from a dry Savannah, A tree provides a gray blanket of shade.
A Giraffe stands by some lush plants. Stretching its elegant neck to sneak a peak at some visitors. A white sand beach with Palm Trees shows the edge of beauty of Kenya.
An Elephant Proudly stomps in the dust. Mount Kenya is slightly visible in the background.
A herd of elephants, strolls through the lush grass. Little babies grip their parents tails. A leopard sits neatly in the Kenya sun, soaking up the hot sun.
The Summits of Mount Kenya are surrounded by a white mist.The Sun starts to set as zebras graze.
The red sunset announces the end of the typical day of Kenya.

From Jack the Ripper to Jimmy Hoffa, here are
10 of the most notorious cases yet to be cracked
Nothing haunts the mind and stirs the imagination like a real-life whodunit. Gory details, large sums of money or sexual overtones pique the public's interest, while authorities struggle, sometimes for decades, to crack the case. Who killed the beauty queen? Where is the body buried? How did the heist unfold? Such questions might never be answered, but here's a mystery resolved below: What are history's 10 greatest unsolved crimes?
Everyone knows who murdered five (maybe more) prostitutes during 1888 in London's Whitechapel district: Jack the Ripper. The mystery is his real identity. In 2002, crime novelist Patricia Cornwell concluded a $4 million investigation by fingering painter Walter Sickert. Other suspects include Queen Victoria's grandson Prince Albert Victor, royal physician Sir William Gull, and even "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" author Lewis Carroll, who most Ripperologists conclude was a weird guy, but probably not a killer.
The 1947 slaying of 22-year-old aspiring starlet Elizabeth Short, dubbed the Black Dahlia for her dark hair and wardrobe, unfolded like a film noir. In an empty Los Angeles lot, Short's body was found mutilated, sliced in two and drained of blood, all with surgical precision. The LAPD dismissed many suspects, including a handful who confessed, and never cracked the case. Several books have claimed to name the murderer, including 2003's "Black Dahlia Avenger," in which author Steve Hodel convicts his own father, a former L.A. doctor.
Another BECOME a millionaire trick from
1. Make money
2. Don’t spend all of your money
3. Save some money
4. Invest that money
What do you guys think of money? Why is it the main idea of the world?

"..we are pleased to report record revenues and earnings during the second quarter. This places us in a solid position as we enter the second half of fiscal 2006. Our robust second quarter delivered net revenue growth of 24% to $1.9 billion, net earnings growth of 27% to $127 million, and second quarter earnings per share of $0.16."Above is how much Starbucks made in 2006. Starbucks is the biggest coffee shop in the world.
A quote from Wikipedia says:
"with 17,133 stores in 49 countries, including 11,068 in the United States, nearly 1,000 in Canada and more than 800 in Japan" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starbucks)
WOW! Starbucks is for sure on of the leading Coffee Places.
Did you know Starbucks was this big?

You are walking down the computer software department of a store. You spot a program labeled: Norton. Its says it protects against viruses. You've probably heard of it before. You buy it and are confident that your computer is protected. That Norton will elimate every virus. WRONG!
Norton is not designed to destroy viruses. Its designed to warn you of viruses. While you think they are gone. They aren't.
When the screen says "Virus Blocked" Its not really blocked, and it doesn't warn you of all the viruses.
Now Imagine an ocean, now imagine a scanner. The Ocean is 40 feet deep, the scanner only scans 2 feet down. So only the viruses near the top are picked up and not the deadly spyware nesting near the bottom.
Here is what people say of Norton:
Norton is utter junk you even have to remove norton like a virus. Instead of clicking uninstall and clicking a button you have to do that plus install a norton removeal tool then use that tool to really uninstall it then uninstall that tool.
Norton is useless, such a resource hog.
Above are from a Computer "Geek" forum,
Computer Users suggest:
AVG~Picks up surface Viruses
SpyBot~Picks up spyware

Its Everywhere! Songs, Books, Movies, It all seems to be about Love. Is it made too much of a deal?
If we change the wording a bit, it would be: Is Love really this important?
Or Why do they make a big deal about it?
As Human Beings we long to be accepted, the media uses this as a marketing advantage. They can make you dress a certain way so you think you'll find love that way. (One strategy is showing a model in those clothes with lots of the opposite sex around her) and so on.
But Is it made too much of a deal?
Love is important
No one cares about money, the world, only love! We should focus on other topics!
Do you think Love is a too big of a deal?

Some say its Love. Some say to be successful. Some say just to live, some say God was bored and just made life.
But, What I think:
Life is complex. People are complex. Everyone is different. Therefore I think every one's point of life is different, Everyone lives a different life, I think the point of life is what you make it to be, If your goal in life is to become rich, than that is your point of life, if you want to love, than your point of life is to love.
I think most people have more than one goal, or point of their lives, We usually have multiple goals or "wants." People want different things: *Usually more than one*
Say, Susan wants to find love, she wants to become rich, she wants to publish a book. Those are her Goals or Wants. Therefore she made those to be her points of life!
That's what I think. But what do other people think?
“Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.”
“Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.”~Kahlil Gibran on love
Life is just a chance to grow a soul.~A. Powell Davies
The importance of life is to live it to the full~Unknown
"The Point of Life Is Love, Humans need acceptance which can only be fur filled by love."~ Unknown
What do you think? What do you think Is The Point of Life?
The Sight by David Clements Davies. By looking at the front cover you think this is your "Typical" wolf novel.
Truth is its not!
In the Shadow of the Carpathian mountains a pack of wolves seeks shelter from the Vicious weather. A Legend clings to them-a story of man and wolf, of power and death, The Sight has come into their world. They will never be the same again...
The Sight is a type of power, To control minds, see through animals eyes and see the future in water.
Out of 5 stars this book gets a 5. Its amazing! Pick it up!

So What COUNTRY invented the compass?
The Compass was invented in Ancient China somewhere in the 2nd century. In the 11th century the compass was used for navigation.
But, That doesn't make sense! Compasses are supposed to point to north therefore for navigation. But, what did Ancient China use it for all those generations.
Using my sources: (Wikipedia)
"The earliest Chinese compasses were probably not designed for navigation, but rather to order and harmonize their environments and buildings in accordance with the geomantic principles of feng shui. These early compasses were made using lodestone, a special form of the mineral magnetite that aligns itself with the Earth’s magnetic field.["
Did you always know that the compass wasn't used for Navigation?
In the 3rd century, an old book writes about people in china using compasses to prevent them from getting lost? Maybe, the use of navigation was discovered later on?
We know that compasses went from looking like this:
To looking like this:
