Whoa, it took two cute little froggies in a Goggle holiday logo to remind me that today is Leap Day! The day that only comes around once every 4 years, and brings the Summer Olympics and a Presidential Election with it. When I was a kid I was fascinated by the idea of someone having a birthday on this day, how your birthday could just go away 3/4 of the time...you could get a driver's license on your fourth birthday! Or drink when you were six! Hahaha! Amazing!
Query of the Moment
Dear Dr. Science,
Why is there always room for Jello?
The technical term for Jello, I believe, is 2, 2, 4 Trimethylpentane in a colloidal mucous base. Early attempts to promote sales of the colorful and somewhat tasty product failed to catch on, perhaps because of their slogan "There's always room for 2, 2, 4 Trimethylpentane in a colloidal mucous base." Then they hired a copywriter to coin a catchier phrase for the product; the rest is history.
Movie Quote of the Moment
"[on his appreciation of lesbians] Oh, God love them. They get so much done in a day, don't you think?"
--Jesus Christ in Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter, a low-budget Canadian indie musical/chop-socky flick. With lots of lesbian vampires. My favorite character name? "Mary Magnum".
