Your complete personality profile can be described as 38.5% King/Queen, 38.5% Warrior, 15.4% Magician, and 7.7% Lover.*
Confident, competitive, and analytical, you are a fierce and steady protector of your friends, family, and all things you hold dear. You’re extremely ambitious, targeted, and determined—almost to a fault of being self-centered—and are an undeniable force of industriousness.
While you’re logical, orderly, and respect the rules like the King and Queen, you’re much more assertive and always ready to dive into action or conflict. Because you prefer to be somewhat isolated, you tend to have few very good friends, but these friends definitely count on you whenever there’s a task to be done with precision.
"Give up the battle to win the war:" Dare to be occasionally weak to be seen as "real" to others and find that enemies can become friends if you let them have a bit of the power.
Protective, orderly, and wise, you’re a disciplined leader and an excellent advisor who likes to make and play by the rules. While you prefer to oversee and issue commands without necessarily being the one to carry them out, you’re also very compassionate and nurturing—sometimes to a fault of being passive. A lover of learning characterized by wisdom, you enjoy giving advice and others often seek it from you.
At your best within the confines of your own “castle,” you prefer that which is safe, secure, and known. No surprise then that you’re most comfortable interacting one-on-one with those you love or want to know better, and that your confidence looses steam in new situations
Learn to let go, dare to dream, and take action without certainty about the outcome.
Fuck Yeah —- I couldn’t more excited about by up-coming trips, one next weekend and the other over the 4th of July. Two insanely great trips for me to look forward to. I hope to be moving to DC in a couple of months and who doesn’t love NYC? I just think both will help me to see what can be, what should be, and what I can be! I need a vacation from my current reality and a preview of “what could be” more than anyone could know! So what to do? Bring it on! Literally two of my favorite places in less than a month (if only London was on the list I would have hit my trifecta of fabulous) but until then all I can say is FUCK YEAH, bring on the adventures!
In preparation that next week brings loads and loads of rain to break this crazy-ass heat wave we are stuck in the middle of, I bring my version of a rain dance - lightning trivia!
· Your chances of being struck by lightning are 1 in 600,000. The odds of being struck in your lifetime is 1 in 3,000.
· Thunder is a shock wave that results from the quick heating and cooling of air long the lightning channel.
· The temperature of a lightning bolt is 50,000° Fahrenheit or four times the temperature on the sun’s surface.
· Florida, the “Lightning Capital of the World,” has more deaths and injuries from lightning strikes than all the other states combined.
· People under age 35 are 85% of lightning victims in the United States.
· Lightning strikes only one person 91% of the time.
· One in five or 20% of strike victims die. About 70% have long-term health effects after being struck by lightning.
· 70% of lightning injuries and fatalities occur in the afternoon.
· Sound is generated along the length of the lightning channel as the atmosphere is heated by the electrical discharge to the order of 55,000 degrees F (5 times the temperature of the surface of the sun).
· The maximum distance you can hear thunder is as short as two (2) miles and seldom exceeds twelve (12) miles.
· The average lightning bolt is 6-8 miles long and can easily travel 25 to 40 miles horizontally prior to turning downward toward the ground.
· It is almost soothing to hear the low rumble of thunder off in the distance as a storm approaches, yet the very sound of thunder indicates that you are in immediate danger. The forward and backward reach of lightning far outruns your ability to hear its thunder. When you hear thunder (even faint thunder) you are in danger of a lightning strike. When the leading edge of a thunderstorm is within 10 miles you are at immediate risk due to lightning’s out reach. In fact, many lightning deaths and injuries occur with clear skies directly overhead.
· Lightning can travel over the surface of the ground and through the ground. The ground surface can be lethal for up to 60 feet radius or more from the point of contact. In water, the lethal radius is about 600 feet from point of contact.
· The energy contained in a single lightning stroke can power a 100 Watt light bulb for 90 days, which is equivalent to 215 kWh (kilo-Watt hours).
· The energy released by lightning strikes can generate nitrogen oxides (from the un-reactive nitrogen in the air). These nitrogen oxides are beneficial for plants, as plants use these for growth
· Talking on the phone is the leading cause of lightning injuries inside the home.
When life hands you lemons, squeeze them into your vodka! So we have covered how much I hate Wilmington, and yet here I am. My friends keep coming and going with trips and adventures that leave me completely green with envy and yet here I am — with one change, instead of being “green with envy”, “lobster red” is a better description of my color today. You’d think I would have learned by now, my lily white skin can’t handle the sun, but throw me a couple of corona’s and I lose all ability to tell my skin is frying and in its place I like to believe it is tanning like all other beach comers. I unfortunately just go from lily white to lobster red and then back to lily white, a viscous cycle of curtly! So what’s the up side, while I am green with envy that others get to come and go , making lives for themselves worth living, I’m stuck in southern small town, suburban hell, at least my hell is beachside. So at least with my life’s lemons I can squeeze the lemons into my vodka and go pass-out on the beach – so suck on that!
Ok, let’s just all agree, that as far as athletes go, soccer players are by far the sexiest! Their bodies, their attitudes, their endurance – they could completely rock my world. And as if I needed another reason to watch the World Cup – here are 10 more reasons!
Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22 and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following is an open letter to Dr. Laura penned by a east coast resident, which was posted on the Internet. It’s funny, as well as informative:
Dear Dr. Laura:
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:
When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15:19- 24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?
I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?
A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this?
Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?
Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?
I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? - Lev.24:10-16. Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.
When I think about my childhood – I can’t possibly over look the importance The Golden Girls played! I loved them. They were the four smart-ass, witty, sarcastic ladies that gave me hope. They showed me that it wasn’t about the years in your life that matter, but the life in the years you should worry about, that families came in all shapes and sizes, and through it all girlfriends and a cheesecake could really solve any problem! They were the original “Sex in the City”, and for that, on today after we have lost yet another golden girl, all I can say is ‘thank you girls for being my friend!’
It is well established that white people like the past. Vintage clothing, history degrees, and nostalgia are just three examples of how white people show their love for by-gone eras. So when white people think about growing their own food they are reminded of pastoral images of farming, working the land, and growing whole natural foods for their family. This most positive viewpoint comes from the fact that white people have mostly enjoyed supervisory roles in agricultural production over the years.
But as more and more white people moved into cities, they lost their connection to working the land. In recent years, the most advanced white people have quit their jobs, moved to the country and opened artisanal dairies and small scale radicchio farms.
However, not all white people have the ability, or the trust funds, to quit their job and follow their food-based passions. Some white people have to get their fix by picking their own fruit.
Many of you might be familiar with the process of harvesting a crop, some of its more intense variations are often referred to as “migrant labor” and “slavery.” Under these conditions, laborers are expected to work extremely hard in order to live up to large expectations about their fruit picking output.
When white people harvests a crop it’s known as “berry picking” or “pick your own fruit.” Under these conditions, white people are expected to work leisurely with no real expectations and then they pay for the privilege to do so. In other words, berry picking is the agricultural equivalent to a private liberal arts college. It’s no surprise white people like it, because much like a liberal arts degree it feels like you’ve done real work when you really haven’t.
Of course the easiest way to turn a profit with this information would be to start your own fruit picking farm. But that is only looking at the small picture. It is well established that all white people enjoy doing manual labor under watered down and expensive conditions. So, if you are currently working in a job that requires intensive amounts of work, you should consider using that work space to create what is essentially an adult daycare for white people who would like to spend an afternoon learning how to use a loom or pretending to be a construction worker.
Note: if you encounter a white person who is actually good at manual labor they are either some kind of performance artist, writing a book, or the host of a show on HGTV.
