    On a non-cofveve level, this little video is just too good. What a great premise.

  2. I'm predicting that 'covfefe' is going to end up in dictionaries one day as an actual word with an actual definition. I predict it.

    covfefe - What happens to a word when auto-correct doesn't kick in when you expect it to.

    The day the first covfefe comment was posted to this thread, I did a search for the word on Amazon and found 12 pages of products, everything from quickly-made MP3 files to mugs, t-shirts, bumper stickers....I think it'll only end up a footnote in history, but who knows? It might gain more traction unexpectedly.

    Well, I wont be buying any mugs.

    Clearly, it was a strange thing to post, and clearly there are many who are more than eager to poke fun at Mr. Trump. I thought it was most likely a typo of the word coverage myself, but the WH has said it is a term used in the presidents circle, so it means something to someone. Personally, I think there are more important things to become concerned with than the Covfefe (which now I am sure must mean some type of covert poodle).

    Anyway, fun for a day, but a product line? really? I guess, good luck with that.

    One of the dorm buildings of my old college burned down yesterday. Nobody was hurt, but the building is a total loss. :(

    To Tweet, or not to Tweet, that is the question.

    Lol. :D

    I just published my second blog on my site. Thursday is blog day. I gotta say once I set up a calendar of deadlines I've gone from flakey writer, to disciplined writer. The last time I felt this proud...I can't remember. I've graduated college, I have a job, yet this feels better than both. I'm weird I know. :p

    Wasps are just a bunch of bullies who dress up as friendly and useful little bees. It's time for biologists to make a pheromone that causes wasps and mosquitos to fight eachother. Maybe that will distract both of them enough to leave me alone.

    I'm with you as long as they can be sure that Bees will be left alone.
    This week during some heavy rain, four Bumble Bees came in to my office and just hung around until the rain stopped. They flew around for a while then settled down on a Jammy Dodger I left out for them. When the rain stopped they buzzed off. Delightful!
    Scientists are working on how to make Mosquitoes sterile so they can't make little Mosquitoes. So maybe there is "a plan".

    I fully agree. Bees are delightful little balls of fuzz who work tirelessly to pollinate flowers and make delicious honey. They should all receive tiny little medals for their great service to everybody.

    I didn't know about the sterilization plane but now I really hope it will work. Not to sound like a maniac, but I think all animals can agree that a world without mosquitoes is a better world. What good do those tiny vampires do anyway?

    Edit: By the way, that was an adorable story.
     
  19. They say you can't read in dreams. I think that's weird; I have dreams about reading all the time. i can both read and write in my dreams.

    By read, I do mean i can clearly see and read individual words and letters. I can also write things down in my dreams. I sometimes do that so I'll remember it when I wake up.

    Yes, I'm a lucid dreamer, but it happens even when I'm not lucid dreaming.

    I post this because last night I dreamed I was reading a smutty fan fiction online--well, a fan fiction that sounded like a 13 year old trying to write something smutty, and not succeeding. I even remember the font type and size. (that is, I recognized it, but I can't remember the name.) I'm not really sure what it was a fan fiction *of*.

    1) Why do I have awesome dreaming abilities that everyone says shouldn't exist, and 2) why does my brain choose to use them for incredibly stupid things?
     
  20. But mosquitoes feed so many other creatures! What about the bats and dragonflies? What would they eat?

    ^I've dreamed about actually reading a book a couple times; one even had colour illustrations, but I didn't like how they didn't match up with what I was visualizing, so I made them change. :cool:
