OK I confess I haven't done anything about a book review. I know... I know... I suck but we all have our shortcomings so don't go pointing any fingers at me bub. Instead I'm going to do a review of the kids movie "Up!" (Please I didn't add the exclamation mark I'm pretty sure that's what it's called).
OK it's a Disney-Pixar movie so you know that is gonna have that corny quality that rakes in billions for evil conglomerates.However "Up!" was pretty good compared to some other Disney movies and it was not as corny as I expected. I think the idea of an old man in his 70s floating away with his house tied to a gazillion balloons was cute and funny. There are two flaws I have noticed in most Disney movies which I absolutely detest:
Step 1 Hero/Heroine does something stupid at start of movie.
Step 2 Hero/Heroine does same stupid thing at the end of movie to fight evil bad guy(s)
The moral is always "Believe in yourself and you can do anything" or something similar.
Now "Up!" had neither of these which- come to think of it-impressed me. I think overall "Up!" was a good movie, Russell's childish enthusiasm and Alpha"s squeaky voice were hilarious.
I give it a 4/5 I think.

This just coming in: I got a concussion! AND I had momentary loss of consciousness. I got knocked out for the first time in my life. It was all very dramatic and tragic. But the best part is I don't have to go to school tommorow and I get to miss an exam. I owe it all to my little brat of a brother who was chasing me when I slipped on some water that HE spilled and didn't clean up. Ah how I love him.
Ps. U can't touch me I've got a medical certificate! IN YOUR FACE! IN YOUR FACE! To all u educationalists out there.

Ok here it is... What you have all been waiting for... It is... PAPER CLIPS!
The most common paper clip that we use was never patented but it was most likely made in Britain in the 1880s by "The Gem Manufacturing Company" according to Henry J Petroski.
Johan Vaaler, a Norwegian attained patents in Norway and in America for a less practical paper clip which used less wire as it did not include the last outer loop and one long side that the gem clip had. Heres what Vaaler's clip looked like.
Interestingly Norwegian patriots wore paper clips an their lapels during world war 2. This was not because Johan Vaaler supposedly invented the paper clip but because other badges were not allowed and the paper clip stood for solidarity and unity.
I hope this broadens all your horizons.

Here are the comics I liked this week. They are not in order, cuz that would be too much work.
This week I am doing it on Sunday night but next week I'll be doing it on Monday afternoon.
Has anyone ever tried programming stuff in Qbasic? It's funner than you might think. Granted u can't make any superstar programs or anything but you can make stuff like things where the computer asks u questions and depending on the answer you can get different responses.
Ps I know funner isn't a word so SHUT UP!
Pps U guys probly think I'm a freakazoid computer geek but you can't judge a book by it's cover.
Ppps I know it doesn't make sense so SHUT UP!
Pppps Ok I think that 4 p's is a bit overkill don't u?

I'm completely covered in science homework except I can't do any of it cuz I don't have the worksheet or the notebook or whatever. Hehe. I guess the poll is going pretty good but im curious who voted for who. Next time I make a poll I'm going to make it shorter. I only gave this one such a big time limit cuz I knew that It would take some time for people to come here and vote.Nothing else to say now g2g cya.
