I spend a lot of time thinking about my place in the world. Imagine that people have been living for 150,000 years. I wonder what the world will be like in 100 years, 1000 years. It makes me feel much less significant.

Well this is my first post.

Today I spent the day writing about such things as Embalming Fluid, Cottage Cheese, Cheesecake, Boron, and Dominoes. I am only writing this right now because I was tired of writing about my current assignment, Gunpowder.

It reminds me of when I was a kid and I made smoke bombs. Mix a little sugar and potassium nitrate (saltpeter at the drugstore) and light it. You get lots and lots of smoke.

I wasn't able to Joggle today. It was too cold and I'm busy writing for the encyclopedia. In case you don't know, Joggling is the sport of simultaneously running and juggling. I have done 9 marathons joggling and intend to do 35 more. 44 is my favorite number (ruthenium is element 44) and that's why I'm doing 44 marathons.

that's it for today.
