    observers on Earth. Like all geostationary satellites, Syncom 3

    was placed in orbit about 22,00 miles from Earth, above the

    Equator and near the International Date Line. The 1964 Tokyo

    The Central Asian country came under British control in 1859,

    Despite trying several times to consolidate their rule over

    Afghanistan, the Afghan people remained hostile to British

    control and in 1919, King Amanullah declared Afghanistan to

    be independent from Britain’s protection. The declaration

    launched a war called the Third Anglo-Afghan War, which

    ended with the signing of the Rawalpindi Treaty on this day.

    The treaty granted Afghanistan independence from the British.

      Layer of propriety or germs? I call cooties!

  23. Bigotry and hate is born when one can not accept that others can have beliefs different than themselves.

  24. Homogeneous adj. 1. Uniform in structure or composition. 2. Of the same or similar nature or kind: “The corporation maintains tight-knit, homogeneous board members.”

  25. So the interview from last week was a no go... means it wasn’t meant for me. Not too upset... hope the right thing comes along soon.

      Too bad you didn't get it, but as you say something else will appear. 

  26.  just now I thought God wanted to spare me the torture of watching eclipse. Because  I was just about to post that I was going to start it and the power went out. 


    Devil must think I deserve it. Because the power came back before I could post about being Saved. 


    (" but you could have used your phone"


     read my other statuses, I'm not using mobile data for Twilight)

    1. BHopper2


      Only thing I can say about the Twilight series... Vampires don't sparkle in the sun. They burst into flames and die!

    2. VampireMystic


      I too prefer the traditional mechanics vis a vis vampires and the sun.


      However, it does present certain frustrations in plot planning. Especially if you have your fiendish heart set on a high school romance that allows scenes in classes. 


      So, if you need to break from the norm, durable diamond-like skin that twinkles in sunlight is a solution and a plausible source of secrecy. It is also a better evolutionary adaptation than solar exposure induced combustion. However, a nod to evolutionary biology is undermined by ignoring that jewels sparkle in all light. 


      It also works slightly better as a solution than a magic ring. I meant scientifically. Sigh. I take it back, magic rings rule. (Make for dubious birthday presents though)


      Although you'd think a lot more twinkle fairies would seek out the weather in Forks. 


      ( is there also a Spoons or maybe a Splits? Diverges?)
