the week begins on Monday, as Sunday is a day reserved to rest and recover from Saturday

the day begins when the Sun rises, and not midnight. often, though, it only begins when I rise and the Sun is up.

giving money to beggars is wrong. they use guilt to rob you, then spend that money on anything other than what they claim in their spiel.

weird dreams are the sign of a sick and brilliant mind.

spending time in Chit-Chat leaves not enough time for other things.

you guys iz funny, especially the duck.

The internet is funny. The Duck is a great cross referencer.

Ok, I know you are a writer of fiction, but this is seriously pushing the believability factor.

Chapel changes his uberbadge and microbadges so frequently that even those of us who are stupid enough to subscribe to him don't see all the configurations.

When the air finally gets cool in the evening with low humidity I will still have to keep the windows shut because of the damn cats and skunks in area having fragrant territory marking showdowns.

If you try to hang fourteen pound weights from your ears, they'll rip off.

(I believe only twelve pounds is required, but being an engineer in a past life, I like to factor in worst-case design scenarios.)

In the ongoing battle between objects made of aluminum going hundreds of miles per hour and the ground going zero miles per hour, the ground has yet to lose.

I had tried to change mine as frequently as Chapel. When he went with the Inglorious Basterds theme last month I had to change my badge to say "Lastest Craze" to poke fun at the frequency.

Someone from Chit Chat will try to disprove you on this. They'll even post pics to prove it (which since this is Chit Chat, will be heavily photoshopped.)

The rest I can take or leave, but these two, especially the first one, are true.

I hope you mean 47 Tons/in^2, not 47 tons pounds per square inch.

I'm going to go watch some IHRA Drag Racing this weekend, so I have a few cool weird facts about Top Fuel Dragsters that are true:

An average passenger car has 200hp. A top fuel dragster develops between six and eight thousand horsepower.

Top fuel dragsters use 20 gallons of nitromethane during startup, the burnout, roll back, and the actual run itself.

A top fuel dragster's supercharger, which is a pump that force-feeds air into the engine, requires 800hp to operate at full RPM. that's several times the output of a standard passenger car, just to spin the supercharger!

The wing on the back of a Top Fuel Dragster generates 12,000lbs of downforce at full speed.

A Top Fuel Dragster goes from 0-60 in less than a second, is doing 100 by the full second mark, and at the end of a quarter-mile is cooking along at between 300 and 340mph. The driver is subjected to 5g on launch, the same as a shuttle astronaut. He is subjected to 7g when he pulls the parachutes. The entire run is over in less than 5 seconds.
