    Re: "You Learn Something Every Day"

    My brother is going for becoming a Catholic Deacon, he just got approved for Acolyte.

    And that... "I am only a level 3 cleric and can take out level 2's and any extra ordinaries- but pretty much only good for drawing fire and exposing the enemy."

    I could have sworn an Acolyte was a level 4...live and learn.

    That although I love where I work..
    Just kinda hit strong tonight.

    I'm really disliking being a Glorified Shift Leader (middle management).
    Being held responsible for others goof ups, while castrated as to doing anything about their behavior. I've talked, begged, Barked, Written-up, etc... but with nothing as disciplinary action to take? What can I do? Sheesh.

    A dwarf planet orbiting beyond Neptune has been designated the third plutoid in the solar system and given the name Makemake, the International Astronomical Union said on Saturday.

    I never knew who Makemake was, before seeing this - I only knew the word as a lyric in the song "Kipu Kai."

    tee hee.

    i learned this morning about gold bond medicated powder's cultish following, esp in the *ahem* netherlands.

    the reason i found out about this is bcs the baby version of gold bond powder has become my choice as an antiperspirant substitute. some years ago, my armpits suddenly developed an extreme dislike for antiperspirants. i switched brands many times; tried deodorants instead of antiperspirants, and even used the rock for a month--all to no avail. eric suggested cornstarch. i tried regular johnson & johnson's cornstarch initially, then switched to gold bond baby powder. it was like the clouds parted and angels started singing. i've been using it for months now and had intended to post about it on the best purchases of the day thread and decided to do some online product research beforehand--which led me to my "airmen-love-gold-bond-powder" discovery.

    apparently, gold bond powder is popular with many men for its cooling, chafe-relieving, "humidity-preventing" properties. the tingling sensation (which doesn't happen with the baby powder version, so i'm unfamiliar) is seemingly addictive as well. it's been a go-to product for many in the military, as far back as the vietnam war.

    gold bond seems to be capitalizing on this with its rather amusingly euphemistic "powder my 'equipment'" ads.

    aw kani-lehua poor thing your kitty...

    today I learned that you should always use a recipe when you cook a meal, even if you've made it a thousand times. Also, I learned that pouring salt in dishes to even out the extra sugar you dumped in doesn't work.

    Next time, I'll leave the cooking to my hubby.

    things i learned today, and it's barely 1PM:

    1. if you have $10, a properly filled out application, and a picture ID like your hawaii driver license, you can get a certified copy of your birth certificate while you wait at the dept of health.

    2. the line to get a birth, marriage, or death certificate is twenty times longer than to get a marriage application.

    3. you can get your passport pic taken and your passport application filed at UH campus center.

    4. cafe kaila is a really nummy, pleasant place for breakfast.

    Today I read a sports magazine for the first time; the article in ESPN caught my eye about Colt Brennan. Interesting article! I happened to be in the "necessary" room at the time. (Oops! TMI!) Guess I learned you can't tell a magazine by its cover, 'cept this cover had Colt's picture on it.

    I learned today that I can DL the KSDL lesson streams for later (offline) viewing with the following command...

    Code:
    mplayer -noframedrop -dumpstream "`wget -O - 'http://ksmedia.ksbe.edu:8080/ramgen/dl/kulaiwi/high/kulaiwi01.rm?usehostname' | head -1`" -dumpfile kulaiwi01.dump -bandwidth 999999999999
    Now I'll have something to do during my 6 hour layover tomorrow in MSP. *AND* the quality looks way better than when I stream it with Realplayer.

    One of our state birds...the construction crane...has been perched outside my 19th floor window since I bought the place earlier this year. The crane is building a nest...a 42 story building across the street. What I've enjoyed seeing is the American and Hawaiian flags flying from the back end of the crane at night, illuminated by a spotlight. It's very dramatic against the pitch black sky.

    What I didn't know but recently learned from a friend is that illuminating the American flag at night is a law. How did I get so many decades into my lifetime without knowing that?

    My upcoming New Years resolution is to keep a daily journal of at least one, new thing I learned that day...something to pass along to my grandkids.
