Found in the Hatch Daily New Summary

Flatulence from cows and sheep is 25 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than CO2 from cars. Ruminants expend 50 percent more GHG than the world's transportation sector.
The good news: kangaroo stomach gas has no methane component.
Resolution: Replace cows and sheep with kangaroos

This made me laugh. So I thought I'd share it.

A Caution to Everybody

Consider the auk;

Becoming extinct because he forgot how to fly, and could only walk.

Consider man, who may well become extinct

Because he forgot how to walk and learned how to fly before he thinked.

'The main battles in life are to believe in the person and work of Christ on the cross. I mean really believe it - trust it, embrace it, cherish it, treasure it, bank on it, breathe it, shape your life by it.'
The best portion of a man's life is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love -William Wordsworth

I've not the faintest idea where I first found this quote, but it inspired a story that got me through almost every HSC Adv. English exam, so thank you William Wordsworth.

The Promised Periodic Table (Before I Forget)

What we Actually Need to Know

'The Bible-versus-science debate has, most regrettably, sidetracked readers of Genesis 1. Instead of reading the chapter as a triumphant affirmation of the power and wisdom of God and the wonder of his creation, we have been too often bogged down in attempting to squeeze Scripture into the mold of the latest scientific hypothesis or distorting scientific facts to fit a particular interpretation. When allowed to speak for itself, Genesis 1 looks beyond such minutiae. Its proclamation of the God of grace and power who undergirds the world and gives it purpose justifies the scientific approach to nature. Genesis 1, by further affirming the unique status of man, his place in the divine program, and God’s care for him, gives a hope to mankind that atheistic philosophies can never legitimately supply.'

This is Now my Wallpaper

Hooray, I reached 150 posts. However, I'm less fond of my recent ones than my old ones. I think I need to throw in a bit of actual thinking with all these little posts I've been doing.
So I won't promise anything, but I'll say that if I think about/remember to/get around to it I will try and write up something interesting to share. How does that sound?
Oh, a little picture to celebrate my 150 posts. =D

A word that is now too often under-used, at least around me.

I found some rocks a while ago that I thought were cool, so I'm sharing them with you.
