London Bridge should have been made of tooth picks!

Today at our school we had a contest for the geometry class. They have been working on putting together wooden bridges made of tooth picks. The goal was to make a bridge, completey out of un-cut toothpicks and glue, that could support a large amount of weight.

I beleive that gap they had to cover was 11-inches. And each bridge had to have a hole in the middle to allow for the weight platform to hang from. The bridges then would have to hold every increment of weight for atleast 5 seconds, before more weight was added (The increment being 5 pounds).

 While the overall of the contest was entertaining because of the busting of bridges, meaning toothpicks going everywhere, the most entertaining was the first bridge tried. It was a marvelous peice put together by Sarah Thompson that was not only artistic, but also stable.

The bridge was able to hold well over 200 pounds, and show’d no signs of breakage. In this yearly contest, all the bridges are to be tried until breakage, but Sarah was alloud to keep her bridge in one peice because of the weight platform being unable to fit any more weight.

I really enjoyed watching this competition, and recomend watching it to students of the future~

Missionary Chapel

This week is missions week at our school. And this ment that we would be having Missions Chapel. A chapel in which we have missionarys come in and talk about what they are doing.

Missions Chapel this year was very very good. We had a family come in that were in the process of transitioning to a mission field outside of the country. They came in and told how they have had to leave behind the things/people they love and learn the culture of the place they were going.

The missionarys did a great job of presenting what and where they would be going. I feel greatly for them, and will be praying for them in the future. Remember to pray for the missionarys at your church and school. They are giving up a lot for the glory of God~

Modding my Phone – Verison KRZR K1m

I have just received my “Verizon Krzr K1m”. After reciving it I was very excited. I had a flash/usb cable and had been looking foward to adding songs, ringtones, and other media to my phone. This was gonna give me a chance to do what I had looked foward to in a new phone.

You see, I haden’t done any file transfer stuff before. I had some old, cruddy phone that had no bluetooth, nor usb port. I don’t even remember what type it was, just know, it was bad. Horrible camera, no music at all, no video, no features other then the basic call, voicemail, and other neccesitys.

 Anyways, the KRZR is cool, decent camera, extended video with some good zoom (sorry I don’t have the specific specs), and an mp3 player with EXTERNAL LED touch buttons, so you can close teh lid, and control the the flow from outside the phone. Some minimal bluetooth features.

Now I had my krzr, and I wanted to put some music on it, hurray, its easy take a flash cable, plug i in, and use WMP(windows media player) 10 to auto sync some music to my phone. I did it, hurry, space for 2 songs on my phone(I need to get a Mem card).

Ok, got that, enjoyed it for 5 hours, then I wanted more. I wanted ringtones, but WPM woulden’t allow me to put ring tones on. I didnt’ want to pay for an internet plan, and then pay for ringtones, that’s INSANE. So I started my internet search.

I came across several great sites (leave a comment, and I will go home and get the bookmarks) for modding the verizon krzr K1m. I got to it, and found a prog that allows me to access my phones filesystem through the USB port. COOLIEO, did it.

My phone is now loaded up with about 25 custom, FREE ringtones, I also got some batman logos to go for the background and front screen. I soon plan to overrite the version start screen with some neat batman animation, and also the open front screen verizon logo with some other batman logo thingy. It will be sweet!

I was also searching, and found that I could get free java games on my phone. But this would take some more advanced editing, which would void my warrenty, and potentially render the phone unusable if I failed. In order to get the free java games I would have to overwrite the verizon programming on the phone with an alltell programming. Meaning the phone would behave as if I bought it straight from altell, I would then go in and change a few files on the phone, making it connect to the Verizon service. By doing this, I would be alloud to run java, instead of the verizon installed “brood” software.

In the end, I didn’t do this. I have now added a 2 gig memory card to my phone, and will begin adding songs soon. I have a ton (around 30) custom ringtones on my phone right now. And as soon as I move the pictures & video & music to my memory card, I will be able to put about 70 more ring tones onto my phone! For somereason, the phone will not let me store ringtones on a memory card, and play them from there. Most likely a fault of either the Krzr, or of the verizon software. I’m guessing its the verizon software…

Presidents for Hire – Mike Hucky

First off, I hope any one who is reading this is interested in the future of America. And if so, and you can vote, you should take a look at the current canidates and their views. I used these sites, to find out information about differnt canidates. I don’t plan on downtalking any canidates in this little post, y’all can find flaws without me pointing them out.

Canidate List

Mike Hucky’s Specifics

Political Party,

I myself have a conservitive outlook. This conservitive outlook convicts me towards the republican party. Like most people, I have my differences with the republican party and if an independent were to run with my exact views in mind, then I would vote for him.

As for this year… Republican appears to be the way to go!

Issues,

I’m looking for several things in a canidate. Pro-life beleifs, a truthful relgious conviction, one who seeks to lower taxes, one who beleives in hetro marriage only, and one who looks to take care of immigration issues.

My pick,

So far, Mike Huckabee is the canidate for me. He has upheld an appearence of a man of character. He claims to be fully effected by his religious beleifs, which is truthfull. He is looking to remove ALL income taxes, which I think is a GOOD thing.  He looks to protect second admendment rights, good, I love having the right to defend myself against tyranny, small and great.

Overall, he matches up with my views on a lot of the issues. And out of the other canidates running, I beleive he is the best man to run the country over the next few years.

A hard basketball game last night~

Ah, a hard game last night. We played faith roanoake and wound up losing in the end by 3 points. The game was up and down all night, but we missed a few key shots, and had a few key turnovers that ended up causing our defeat at the end.

Oh by the way, I play basketball! I love basketball, I am 6’5 and enjoy playing anywhere on the floor. Can’t wait to play my next game tomorrow, that is, if school ain’t canceled!

 Y’all should come check out my games, here’s a link the the schedule!

Sched!

I gotta eat!

Hey all,

I have to follow the blog plan so here goes people-

Lately I have found myself really tired after stressfull advents, or sporting advents. Yeah it’s normal to be tired after such advents, but I find myself overly and extremely tired. This tiredness goes far beyond the normal scale of energy depletion and thus I have began looking into ways to improve my diet so that I don’t find myself so depleted.

Not only do I need the food for the energy, I like to eat. I love to eat, I eat almost non-stop. The problem is, I need to find a way to balence my diet. I’m a picky eater, and so balencing my diet may be hard for me. Who knows, we shall see…

 Not only will balencing my diet help me energy wise, it will help me in both the short and the long run. It will help prevent diseases when I’m older, and help my preformence with sports now. All these benefits have made me decide into looking into this diet balenceing plan.

I’ve looked up a few food guides on google, and also noticed an interesting article here on wordpress. The wordpress article is here: 10 things to eat! While a basic nutrients, and healthy diet guide are here: Healthy stuff! And a guide to athletic dieting goes here: Athletic Fooding!
