Which Superhero are you

I tried out a bunch of "which superhero are you" quizzes and the consensus seems to be superman, with a few votes for Mr. Fantastic or Spider-man. But if I really had a choice I would be the new Dr. Mid-Nite. He's awesome.

Your results:
You are Superman

The Flash
Iron Man
Wonder Woman
Green Lantern
You are mild-mannered, good,
strong and you love to help others.

One Day Closer to Paradise

Rodin's "TheThinker" is certainly a good statue, but I have always felt that what it needed to be truly great is to get rid of the statue and maybe drop a twig on the base that's left. Then it would really be art.

Some may disagree with that, but they clearly have no conception of modern art. In 2003 Martin Creed's "Light Bulb turning On and Off" (and that title pretty much describes it) won the prestigous Turner Prize for "making art out of almost nothing." This year, the Royal Academy did them one better by leaving out the art entirely. Instead they nominated the base for David Hansel's statue "One Day Closer to Paradise" , which had apparrently been separated from his sculpture of a head and was entered seperately. The head itself was considered too mundane. Considering this, what would you show up with to win an art competition in England? I'm thinking:
2007- bring nothing at all and say nothing. Let the judges interpret my work.
2008- Don't even show up.
2009- Nominate my brother who doesn't even do art.
2010- My possible children are artists/art in potentia. Truly they already represent the greatest and most cutting edge of modern art. Posted by Picasa

Hinged Fork

Simply Asia is now packing forks that come folded with a hinge in the middle.
Aaah, the wonders of modern technology.

Woodrow Wilson Rest Stop

Many people know that President Wilson came from New Jersey. Less well known is that he cost my school Lehigh a place in the Ivy League by inspiring the Princeton football team to defeat them in a decisive match. Booo.

The flower is the weed.

Here's a plastic plant, which somehow got a real flower growing in it, which would technically be the unwanted weed here.

Joyce Kilmer Rest Stop

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

This is just because I stopped at the Joyce Kilmer Rest Stop today on the way from Philly to New Jersey.

Molly Pitcher Rest Stop

I've been down in Baltimore recently studying with my twin brother, and I've built up a collection of pictures, so here they are.

Me at the Molly Pitcher Rest Stop.

Molly Pitcher as a nickname given to women who brought water to soldiers as they were firing cannons during the Revolutionary War. The most famous one, fought in the battle of Monmouth and when here husband was wounded took his place at a cannon. She was later awarded a warrant as a noncommissioned officer by George Washington. Apparrently there were several women who did similar deeds during the Revolutionary War and the record is a little confused, but the two top candidates are Mary Hays MacCauly and Margaret Corbin. Posted by Picasa
