I have often heard about the 7 wonders of the world. I have even heard reference to an alleged 8th wonder. But I have always been confused about what these wonders actually are. A simple Google search is usually sufficient to clear up these issues, but it only confused me more by giving me different lists of wonders for natural phenomena, man-made structures, etc.
So, since everybody else seems to have their own list of the 7 wonders, I decided I would come up with a list of my own. Here is my list:
My 7 Wonders
I wonder what the 7 wonders of the world are.
I wonder what Zombieland would have been like had it been made after the Hostess apocalypse.
I wonder where all the money I will ever make in my lifetime is right now.
I wonder how many Oreos I’ve eaten in my lifetime.
I wonder if the first person to have real-life super powers would be a good guy or a bad guy.
I wonder how many more “End of the World” or “Last day on Earth”s I’ll live through.
I wonder if this is even worth posting.
What are your 7 wonders? Also, if you can answer any of mine, I’d greatly appreciate it.
Company slogans are creative, fun and catchy. They are a clever way to get a brand stuck in the minds of potential consumers. But what are they really saying? By reading between the lines, we can see the subliminal messages these brands are telling us.
Have it Your Way. - “Don’t order something you don’t want.”
Used by Professionals - “At least two people who get paid for something use this product.”
Just Do It. – “Buy our stuff, come on do it, just do it, do it.”
It’s Everywhere You Want to Be. - “You wish you could be where we are”
The Happiest Place on Earth. – “We’re happy, because people come here and give us all their money”
Think Big - “Compensate.”
American by Birth. Rebel by Choice. – “American’s get to choose things.”
Used Worldwide - “We gave one of these to Phileas Fogg to try out for about 3 months.”
Never Stop Improving - “You’ve got a long way to go.”
Nothing Comes Between Me and My Calvins- “Go Commando”
What Happens Here, Stays Here. – “Your money is what happens here.”
Like a Rock – “We even tested how well our trucks float.”
This is just a sample of the many subliminal slogans out there. You can think you’ve found hidden meaning behind pretty much anything. What are some that you have noticed?
I’ve known how to gargle since I was a baby. The first time I gargled was probably the first time I ever spit up milk. Coincidence? I think not. Everybody knows how to gargle. It’s like one of those things that everyone knows how to do. We take a sip, toss our head back, put the rest of our body on pause and exhale. We all do it the same. But what if we are all doing it wrong?
Everybody makes pretty much the same noise when gargling. There are different pitches and frequencies, but there is no mistaking it as a gargling noise. But why do we make any noise at all? Making sound when gargling is completely unnecessary, but we all do it. Why?
I made the following video to test my theory. I asked about a dozen people to gargle some water on video. I didn’t say anything about gargling noises or why I was having them gargle, I wanted it to be a fair and unbiased sampling. Here is the result:
The Christmas season is upon us, and I decided it was time to take down the Lego Fish Tank decorations and put up something more festive. It took a long time to find a not-too-expensive nativity set that wouldn’t be ruined by water or hurt the fish. And when I finally found one, it floated. But with only a few holes drilled into the cavities of these figurines, I give you the Aquarium Nativity.
