    Seniors, Do You Plant A Tree For Arbor Day? National Arbor Day is Friday, April 27.
    It’s a time to celebrate the wonders of nature,
    and to plan for an even greener future by planting and caring for trees.

    HELP: Should I Pick UMich Or Notre Dame? Okay, so I need to decide within 11 days! I would really appreciate it if you could provide your input on which school I should go to 🙂 I’m a mechanical engineering major (I want to focus on/minor in biology and either become a biomedical engineer or doctor).

    Michigan: less expensive (I’m in-state), ranked higher for engineering, better surrounding town, wider selection of opportunities; but bigger school (less attention)

    Notre Dame: I’m really proud to have gotten in here. I’d really feel like I was missing out if I didn’t go. I LOVE the campus itself (although South Bend isn’t exactly the funnest city), LOVE the dorm system (everyone lives in the dorms, they’re basically like sororities/fraternities), LOVE the food (haha, it’s just healthy & delicious), I’m Catholic and think it would be a great opportunity for my relationship with God to strengthen. The engineering program isn’t ranked as high, but–like Michigan–when I visited it seemed as though there were lots of opportunities for research/internships (plus, smaller school = more attention). Both schools have outstanding alumni working. Both schools have the excitement/spirit that comes with Division I sports. Kind of like the idea of going to a school where I really won’t know anyone from high school, haha. Oh, and only 2 hours from Chicago (my favorite city)!

    My twin sister is going to Michigan, for the record…it may be nice to branch out. Plus, Ann Arbor’s only an hour away from my house…I haven’t yet gotten my financial aid package from ND (expecting it this week), but apparently they give good aid. I expect it to cost more than Michigan–probably $10,000 more per year.

    Thanks in advance!

    Does Darwin Actually Think That Humans Have Evolved? Yes, it’s that magical time of year again when the Darwin Awards are bestowed, honoring

    the least evolved among us.
    Here is the glorious winner:

    1. When his .38 caliber revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach , California would-be robber James Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. This time it worked.

    And now, the honorable mentions:

    2. The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat cutting machine and after a little shopping around, submitted a claim to his insurance company. The company expecting negligence sent out one of its men to have a look for himself. He tried the machine and he also lost a finger.. The chef’s claim was approved.

    3. A man who shoveled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her.

    4. After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting from Harare to Bulawayo had escaped. Not wanting to admit his incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone waiting there a free ride. He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn’t discovered for 3 days.

    5. An American teenager was in the hospital recovering from serious head wounds received from an oncoming train. When asked how he received the injuries, the lad told police that he was simply trying to see how close he could get his head to a moving train before he was hit.

    6. A man walked into a Louisiana Circle-K, put a $20 bill on the counter, and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and fled, leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the drawer… $15. [If someone points a gun at you and gives you money, is a crime committed?]

    7. Seems an Arkansas guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided that he’d just throw a cinder block through a liquor store window, grab some booze, and run. So he lifted the cinder block and heaved it over his head at the window. The cinder block bounced back and hit the would-be thief on the head, knocking him unconscious. The liquor store window was made of Plexiglas. The whole event was caught on videotape.

    8. As a female shopper exited a New York convenience store, a man grabbed her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immediately, and the woman was able to give them a detailed description of the snatcher. Within minutes, the police apprehended the snatcher. They put him in the car and drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of the car and told to stand there for a positive ID. To which he replied, “Yes, officer, that’s her. That’s the lady I stole the purse from.”

    9. The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan at 5 A.M., flashed a gun, and demanded cash. The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn’t open the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion rings, the clerk said they weren’t available for breakfast… The frustrated gunman walked away.


    10. When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street by sucking on a hose, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor home near spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline, but he plugged his siphon hose into the motor home’s sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges saying that it was the best laugh he’d ever had and the perp had been punished enough!

    In the interest of bettering mankind, please share these with friends and family….unless of course one of these individuals by chance is a distant relative or long lost friend. In that case, be glad they are distant and hope they remain lost.

      This is a wonderful collection of foibles! Thank you! Now, to answer your question “that humans have evolved?”, I would change the tense and state that “humans are evolving”! From your list I would also speculate that we have quite a way to go to finish the job of evolution. After this posting, I almost hope that we never get there. With this nonsense going on we’re having too much fun to reach a bland and uninteresting “finally evolved” state.

    Does Anyone Else Believe We Could Achieve So Much As A Group Of People If Everyone Worked Together? Here’s my point of view. I got bored and wrote this.

    Me “If the human race learned how to coexist as one big nation, and not hundreds of separate countries, imagine the stuff we’d accomplished as a group of people. If each country shared their knowledge and resources together with each other and made more advanced technology, who knows? We could of been at Mars making settlements years ago. Or if everyone understood that everyone is the same. Your race, your sex, your culture, your religion, how you dress or look does not make a person. Just because you go to church and worship a God does not make you a good person. What matters is how you treat people day by day. How far you’ll go to help a family member, a good friend, or even some random hobo in Ann Arbor who you’ve never seen in your life. What if everyone had this mutual understanding with each other? But hey! I’m one out of billions of people that make up this small planet that we happen to call “Earth.” It’s impossible for everyone to agree with me, everyone has their own attitude, opinions, faith, and there’s not much that you can do to change that, which is a good thing. Not even .000000001 of our worldly population will read this, so why should I even bother writing it? I guess I’m just bored in school with nothing else better to do except write a long ass paper about my thoughts. I guess the best we can do is try and be the absolute best person you can on your short time alive on “Earth,” but everyone won’t understand this and people will continue to act the way they were raised or how their brains were programmed to act. If you beat your wife for your own dark, morbid, self pleasure, and think it’s right, so be it. If your best is being the scum of earth, that’s cool…. Hopefully you choke on your own vomit and die after a night of binge drinking with your loser ass, underachieving, women beating, waste of precious air friends. Or you abandoned your girlfriend after you find out she’s pregnant because you can’t handle the responsibility of being a father, so be it again. You probably saved that kids life anyways. My point of this all is wouldn’t it be awesome if everyone “got along?” No more turning on the news and hearing about some innocent ten year old kid getting shot by some worthless shithead. Like that story in the bible about Adam and Eve, everything lived together in complete harmony, nothing died, until Adam and Eve were manipulated by that snake that symbolizes the Devil to eat the apple (fruit of lies). After Adam and Eve ate the apple which also God told them no to eat they became mortal, women experience painful birth, everything alive can experience disease, all life have to work/kill for food to live, and their progeny would be stained with sin forever. Also they were forever condemned to burn in hell until God decides to let them out. Basically, what if today our life was like that? If everything got along, not necessarily immortal, but worked together to achieve certain goals that we haven’t done yet, and weren’t greedy about resources like “oil” that really our soldiers in Iraq shouldn’t be fighting for. The war in Iraq basically was a fight for some rich guys money, whose life is without any worries, their children can live a great life with all the money they want, don’t have to fight in a war and lose their lives just because they have relations with someone who ordered all this fighting. Green paper for a young guys life who’s been brain washed into thinking he’s fighting for our country? Don’t get me wrong, if it was WW3 and we have to fight for our world or some country is gonna take us over. I’d gladly die for my country. But not for a war like Vietnam or Iraq. Not everyone will agree with me, and not everyone will think as deeply as someone like me who is always thinking about stuff. What if? What if….

    Your thoughts do you agree?
