Pretty Wild Stuff.....Scotch Tape Xrays! - 10/23/08 06:35 PM
Did you hear about the discovery scientists made involving Scotch tape? It seems that ordinary Scotch tape, the kind you use to wrap packages, when unrolled can emit enough radiation to make xrays! It seems another scientist back in the 1950s came up with the concept, but was recently proved. They placed a roll in a small vacuum chamber and with a mechanical spool, unrolled the tape at the rate of about a foot every 5 seconds which is about as fast as if you were to pull a piece off and measured the emitted radiation with a geiger counter.

Is it Just Me? - 10/18/08 12:35 PM
Is it just me or is there something just not right about this wheelchair ramp? I just happened across this pic on the net and thought it was funny. Would love to know the story behind it. If it isn't a wheelchair ramp, not sure what else it would be. Doesn't look like it's been photoshopped or stairs added to the top. I'm sure there are guidelines about how steep and the length handicap ramps can be, but that doesn't make sense either.

Girl Bitten by a Snake in the Shower - 10/09/08 08:15 PM
Did you hear this story about a girl that was taking a shower and all the sudden a snake came out of the drain and bit her on the ankle and then slid back into the drain? Good gosh, are we not safe anywhere? By the way, the chances of this happening is very slim, so don't think about it when you take your next shower......or maybe you should? :-) Southmayd girl bitten by snake in shower Posted: 1:03 PM Oct 7, 2008 SOUTHMAYD, Tex. -- A 15-year-old Southmayd girl was bitten by a snake while taking a shower Tuesday morning.

Away From Home Freezer Tip - 10/07/08 10:28 PM
I was talking to a friend tonight after her and her husband returned from a ten day cruise and thought I would pass along a tip that might be useful. She indicated that while they were gone their electricity apparently went out because the alarm clock on their nightstand was blinking 12:00am. She was worried about the food in the refrigerator and freezer because she did not know if the electricity was off for just a few seconds or if it was off for days and then back on since they knew some storms came through during that time. They live (11 comments)
My Lysdexic.......I Mean Dyslexic Brain - 10/01/08 09:56 PM
I know this is a silly post but it did prompt me wonder if this is one of those regional things. I got a call today from an agent in Atlanta that was working with another local agent here to sell a home to a client moving to the Fort Worth area and wanted to set up a home inspection. She identified her self as working with the selling agent and wanted me to inspect the house. I thought to myself "hmm...selling agent.... I wonder why she is setting up the inspection for the listing agent? That's strange. After talking to (6 comments)
