"I'm a nun - I'm a penguin!"

(no subject)

hehehe i love this joke:

A teacher asks her class for an example of a "tragedy". One little boy stands up and offers: "If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a runaway tractor comes along and knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy."
"No," says the teacher," that would be an accident."
A little girl raises her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy."
"I'm afraid not," explains the teacher. "That's what we would call a great loss."
The room goes silent. No other children volunteer. The teacher searches the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"
Finally at the back of the room a small boy raises his hand. In a quiet voice he says: "If a jet carrying Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Laura, Jerry Falwell, Eminem, and Bill Gates were struck by a missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy."
"Fantastic!" exclaims the teacher, "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be tragedy?"
"Well," says the boy, "because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss and it probably wouldn't be an accident either."

yesterday i was in stats, and the prof. was talking about the bell curve. he was talking about the intelligence curve and how anything over 130 is genius. well, my IQ is somewhere in the 135-145 range (according to different tests, some online and some that psychologists gave me when i was younger). and some of my friends say i could be in MENSA (for people in the top 2%). i had also calculated that i was in the bottom 2% for height, and i thought it funny that i was in the bottom minority for height and the top minority for intelligence. then the prof. said something about people who were in the 2% area for more than two things were considered to be really abnormal (something like that). so i thought, "this is proof that i'm truly a freak!" i had to cover my mouth and hold my breath to keep from laughing. so yes, i'm a midget genius. hear me roar. hehe i love being me!

oh, and happy st. david's day. i don't know anything about it other than welsh people celebrate it. since i'm part welsh, i figure i should wish everyone a happy st. david's day.
