Kermit the Frog

Aug 31 2006 Published by under Your Inner Child

Even though it is a weekday and I tend to write serious science-y material on days such as this, I am putting this silly quiz here just to let you know that I am thinking about all of you and that I miss you all, dear readers.

You Are Kermit

Hi, ho! Lovable and friendly, you get along well with everyone you know.
You're a big thinker, and sometimes you over think life's problems.
Don't worry - everyone know's it's not easy being green.
Just remember, time's fun when you're having flies!

Schoolhouse Rock: Electricity

Aug 18 2006 Published by under Education, Streaming videos, Your Inner Child

Electricity at rest is called static electricity.
Like in the winter, wearing a heavy coat,
You get a shock off the doorknob.
Or you scrape across a carpet
And sneak up on your very best friend,
And zap 'im on the ear with a shock of-
Electricity, Electricity
Current flowing to and fro, makes a circuit of
Electricity, Electricity
Voltage is the pressure that makes it go.
It's pushin' uh... Electricity, Electricity...
Watts will tell you just how much
You'll be usin'
Uh... Electricity, Electricity

Yet another installment from the Schoolhouse Rock series.

Schoolhouse Rock: Interjections!

So when you're happy (Hurray!) or sad (Aw!)
Or frightened (Eeeeeek!) or mad (Rats!)
Or excited (Wow!) or glad (Hey!)
An interjection starts a sentence right.
Interjections (Hey!) show excitement (Hey!) or emotion (Hey!).
They're generally set apart from a sentence by an exclamation point,
Or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong.
Interjections show excitement or emotion,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah... YEA!

This episode is one of several that really sticks out in my mind.
