Pet peeves

Thursday, November 18, 2010

People who say muscle weighs more than fat....muscle DOES NOT weigh more than fat. A pound of fat weighs the same as a pound of muscle. Brings up the old riddle: Which weighs more, a ton of lead or a ton of feathers?
Uh, they weigh the same. (a ton)
Now if you want to say muscle weighs more **per volume**, that I can go along with. Place a half gallon jar filled with fat and a half gallon jar filled with muscle, my guess is the jar with muscle would weigh more. (let's try it with a rump roast and marshmallows) Muscle is denser than fat. Again, refer to the lead vs feathers. Feathers are fluffy, lots of air. I imagine a ton of feathers takes up a bit more space than does a ton of lead (heavy and dense) Well, unless you use one of those suck-the-air-out-of-everything
-bags. then it might be smaller volume wise.

....pickup truck drivers: Uh, if I can't see your headlights, YOU ARE TOO CLOSE!
oh, and the speed limit is the fastest you're supposed to go under optimum driving conditions. Pea soup fog not included in that. Neither is rain here in Texas. For the once every 10 years we get a dusting of snow, Texans please stay home. you DO NOT know how to drive in it. It's more slippery than rain. (Yeah, and it's usually the same pickup truck drivers who end up doing donuts on the Freeway)

...not being able to find what I need, be it in the rubber room, wally world or the supply closet at work. Right now my unmounted leaf stamps have eloped with a New York friend's die plate. I think they went to Niagara Falls. (Does Wichita Falls actually have a falls? Haven't found a spring here in Lytton Springs... don't know about Dripping Springs)

...when DH and kids are home and use up all the ice.

....popcorn at the movies with that fake butter melted all over it. Doesn't even taste like butter.
Think I've converted DH to unbuttered (yippeee)

...when my hands can't translate what my brain sees - craft/artistic wise. this happens more often than I'd like. really irritates the heck outta me. Sometimes though, it's out of my control (where DID those um stamps go?? I know they're in a 3 ring binder somewhere..My brain is not seeing the binder. It's black. Has 3 rings, plastic sheet protectors with hook and loop tape(HALOS system) holding the stamps in place. Cardstock in the sheet protector, stamped with each image.)
looks like I need to take a trip to Niagara Falls. It's a CONSPIRACY!!, I tell you. a conspiracy!

Guess I'll have to make Christmas cards instead...
