    “Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair. ”

    HA! When I was around 30, I had my hair tested (it was kind of ‘the thing to do’ somehow back then) and I had to stop ingesting zinc because mine was SO HIGH.
    Honestly? I’m thinking zinc must drop quickly after 50 because I don’t feel quite that smart anymore 🙂

    Interesting but all not entirely true. Tungsten gets a patina but doesn’t rust either.

    This cancels the curse at the end.

    BY THE WAY…..am thinking about how Dr Seuss won’t be published anymore.

    Isn’t this BOOK BURNING OF THE NAZIS? They don’t agree so it has to go?
    The saddest thing, ever….

    I had to have a high school class read Huck Finn aloud and they were skipping the “N WORD”….I finally stopped and asked why…their teacher said it was more comfortable to not say it. (our school is about 1/4 Black, 1/4 Hispanic, a bit of Asian and White) I said clearly that I felt that was defeatist to not say it aloud because remembering where we WERE and where we are NOW is a good thing. I was kind of surprised I didn’t get parental feedback of negativity.
    The kids actually agreed.

    They also agreed once when we were reading a somewhat sexual account in that book…or some book, I can’t remember. I stopped the class and asked how many felt pressure to have sexual encounters when they’d feel a lot better, a lot happier and more ‘free’ if they didn’t.
    ALL but one raised their hands…boys AND girls.

    KID, thank you…I wish i’d considered teaching when I was young because, starting to substitute at something like 60 made me so happy…I LOVED teaching. Keeps you young, too! 🙂

    You’re so right…since Obama. Except Obama DID tout Dr Seuss before Seuss suddenly became insensitive! I feel so so so sorry for kids today; didn’t we all LOVE Seuss? Didn’t his rhyming help us learn to read sounds? SO SAD.

    SO UTTERLY RIDICULOUS.
    What could be wrong about TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, in which a white lawyer defends a BlaCk man against a false accusation? It’s the most wonderful story! And it’s gone, too.

    Unlike some people, I always get “new” information at Geeez. But I have to say that Kid is lying (again). Tungsten is a city in China. Statistically, Kid is lying about 2.20462262185 percent of the time.

    I can’t believe I’m saying this here but Greg Gutfeld DID say it on his show the other night so I guess it’s okay…

    He said Potato Head was an Irish sexual act.

    Fun!
    “Soldiers do not march in step when going across bridges” – which is why so many 7-8 story buildings were destroyed in the Mexico City earthquake. Not from proximity to the fault rupture, but from a vibration focused through 100 miles of a certain type of soil into a harmonic that affected those buildings. The vibration effect is powerful!

    To Kill a Mockingbird – again?? It ‘makes some people feel uncomfortable.” So does the bible. Oh well, I guess now we understand why it’s gone.
