Interesting stuff!

Posted in I didn't know that! at 11:55 pm by Olórin

Halo bloggers! Hope everyone’s having a cozy, warm and relaaaaxing weekend! Bleh I wish I am!! -_<

Anyway, I recently recieved a very interesting forward from a friend, I’ll share

what amused me the most!

  • Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair.  (lool 3asa maydahhin sha3arhum!)
  • Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history:

Spades – King David
Hearts – Charlemagne
Clubs -Alexander, the Great
Diamonds – Julius Caesar
(Didn’t know that!)

  • 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321  (Aaah math, I hate you!)
  • It is impossible to lick your elbow. (00; laish?!)
  • If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle. If the horse has one front leg in the air the person died as a result of wounds received in battle. If the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes. (Can’t wait till we travel again 3ashan atfalsaf 3ala whoever’s with me =D)
  • Q.  What do bulletproof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers, and
    Laser printers all have in common?
    A.  All were invented by women. (HARK HARK HARK!! FEAR US,LADDIES!)
  • It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride’s father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon. (Certainly didn’t know that!)
  • Try reading the following:

I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was
rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid Aoccdrnig to
rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr
the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the
frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a
taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is
bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but
the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig
huh?

  •  At least 75% of people who read this will try to lick their elbow! (I did!!)

Elizabeth I: The Golden Age

Posted in Misc. at 12:45 am by Olórin

Recently I went to Elizabeth I : The Golden Age..and i must say that it bewitched me!! i devoured my popcorn mn kithir ma indimajt! It’s been awhile since I’ve seen something as good as this movie!

The direction was so good it was a feast for the eyes and the soundtrack was simply beautiful I didn’t want it to finish! Thank god there wasn’t alot of terrible scenes I was worried about that 00; (just 2 or 3 only) so it was thoroughly enjoyable

The movie is sad in some ways and delightful in some but mostly it shows the hardships the queen faces everyday due to her title and obligations along with the circumstances the 15th century produced.

Elizabeth was an illegitimate child and a protestant and that stirred Spain..making it feel threatened by Britain. And of course the emotional turmoil the queen has when the smart and suave Raleigh shows up! I’ll leave the rest untold for those who wish to see it!

Highly recommended!!! ^^

Why is it called Bluetooth?!

Posted in I didn't know that! at 7:23 pm by Olórin

Halo!

Aaah weekend ^___^ ..even though I’ve got a truckload of homework
and presentations I’m glad the week’s over!

Anyway..does anyone know why bluetooth is called…bluetooth?

Well I found out by coincidence today:

A long long time ago..around the 10th century, there lived a Viking king..
He was blessed with the ability of bringing people to talk to each other and negotiate their problems..
he was so skilled that he was able to unite Denmark and Norway together!

Can you guess that king’s name? it was Herald Bluetooth!

lol I never expected it was named after a person..always thought it was because the waves were blue or tooth-shaped or something!
