12 Meters

Sunday, October 03, 2010

"The whale shark has been known to grow to over 12 meters in length, however, it feeds primarily on small, even microscopic, plants and animals. For all its size and dangerous relatives, it is surprisingly docile and friendly in the water, though still a very large fish. It can be found in any of the equatorial oceans, and is a warm-water fish." - fast fact

First Jobs

Saturday, October 02, 2010

Fast fact of the day: "Brad Pitt, was born William Bradley Pitt on 18th December 1963. In 1985, he left the University of Missouri, some two weeks prior to his graduation, therefore not obtaining his degree in journalism. He aspired to be an actor, so he moved to Los Angeles, where he had several part-time jobs to fund his lessons. This included, dressing up as the chicken, 'El Pollo Loco', and being a chauffeur." I frequent a page called "First jobs of the rich and famous." Madonna worked at Dunken Donuts, and Mike Dell of Dell computers washed dishes for a Chinese food place.
P.S. Yea some days I feel like I have had to worst job tasks ever, then I gaze back at that. See the entire article at my journal. livejournal.com/user/child_of_dreams

Chord

Friday, October 01, 2010

Fast fact of the day: "The word chord is a shortened version of accord meaning harmony. An octave is the interval between one pitch and another pitch that is either double or half its frequency. Pitch is the perceived tone of a note. Timbre is the difference in quality of a tone between different musical instruments"

  


Giacomo

Thursday, September 30, 2010

Fact of the Day: " Venetian adventurer Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798) was an author, a scientist, a gambler, a preacher, a soldier and a spy, but he remains especially (in)famous for his countless love affairs. He provided a detailed account of his scandalous life among the royal courts of Europe in a 12-volume autobiography. Not surprisingly, these memoirs have always been a great source of inspiration for cinema and TV, although with varying approaches and results: in "Casanova & Co." (1976), we saw Tony Curtis as the hero of a stereotypical sex farce; in the sumptuous "Fellini's Casanova" (1977), featuring Donald Sutherland, Casanova was crudely depicted as a bored and elderly philanderer; and in Lasse Hallstrom's romantic comedy of 2005, Heath Ledger played a man in search of the true meaning of love."
