Who Dunnit?

Who Dunnit is a game where you tried to figure out who committed a crime. We are going to be playing somewhat of a spin-off of that which  I would like to call who said it? This is supposed to be a fun activity where you figure out where each quote was from. The goal is to identify where each quote was from and who said it (i.e. movie and character). For example if the quote was "To be or not to be that is the question.", you would say it was said by Hamlet from the play Hamlet written by Shakespeare. Unless it is by someone very famous and renowned such as Shakespeare you do not need to say who wrote it. 

And now the quotes:

  1.  " Oh, you. You just couldn't let me go, could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You are truly incorruptible, aren't you? Huh? You won't kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness. And I won't kill you because you're just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever."
  2. "You shot him in cold blood and threw him off a roof. "
  3. "We're looking for some idiots with no future"
  4. "No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try."
  5. "You either give me what I need or this switch will stay on until they turn the power off for lack of payment on the bill. "
  6. "I like escalators because they can never break.  They can only become stairs.  There would never be a escalator-temporarily-out-of-order sign.  There would only be an escalator-has-temporarily-become-stairs.  Sorry for the convenience." 

  7. "More or less. Son, I'm sorry. They got us."
  8. "Listen. In order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings forty-three times every second, right?"
  9. "You know the cheese that comes with the nachos? Just the cheese."
  10.  " 'Ello, beastie." 
If you enjoyed this you can try my newest Who Dunnit?

Thank you for reading and please let me know what you thought of this. Please post your answers in the comments.

For some reason my article about procrastination popped into my head today, followed by thoughts about procrastinators in general. First off, one idea from my article popped back into my head which was that procrastination can be very helpful and beneficial, you just have to do it right. Then I began thinking about how everybody accuses procrastinators of slacking off and doing nothing while this actually isn't the case. We do not slack off, we just chose to do things that are not what other's think we should be doing. Like instead of doing the dishes, cleaning up our rooms, or doing our work (either for a job or for school), we are doing something else we feel is more important. For example, I should be working right now but instead I am writing this post. Now onto a bit of humor that I was thinking of. Even if you had someone who seemed to be putting absolutely everything off and was just sitting around, you couldn't say they were procrastinating and putting everything off. If you did, they could just respond, "I'm not procrastinating at or putting off procrastinating." 

I am interested to hear what you all have to say about my thoughts here as well as what I said in my article.

Thanks for reading,

My New Meme

For those of you who play Meme's please check out my new meme and if interested please play it: The Random Meme. For those of you who are not check it out and see what you think about them. If you have no clue what I am talking about, a Meme is usually either questions to answer or an activity of some sort to do on your own blog, then you post a link on the meme so others can see what you did. I am just starting Meme's but I have heard that they are fun and a good way to meet new people. To see an example of how meme's are used, and to view an interesting blog, check out The Social Frog

Thanks and I hope to see you playing,

Obama and the bird

Be careful how you criticize President Obama 
because if you are not careful he may flip you off 
too, even if you're on TV. Watch the videos and 
tell me if those count as giving Clinton and McCain the finger.

Alison Jae

Alsion Jae is probably the most popular writer and contributor on Triond. I've read a couple of her poems and thought they were great but have you ever wondered how she does it? How she became one of the most popular writers on Triond in just a couple months? I mean she only published her first article on Triond on August 11, 2008. I want to know what made her so popular and how she got so popular on not just all of Triond but on pretty much each individual sub-site of Triond. The other thing I want to know is whether anyone has actually interacted with her. I've never seen or heard of her sending people messages or commenting on their work, have you? 

If you have any thoughts about Alison or any stories about interactions with her please, please share them. Any and all discussions and thoughts about this would be very much appreciated.

Happy Mother's Day!

Hello All,

I just wanted to take a minute to say Happy Mother's Day. On behalf of the general population and myself, I would like to say thank you to each and every mother. You have all made a difference in at least one person's life, if not more. From birth till the end you are always there, looking out for your kids and making sure they are safe and ok. I hope this is a special day for all the mothers out there and that they enjoy this day made especially for them.

Thanks and happy mothers day,

The Million Dollar Homepage

So I was on wikipedia looking some information up when I accidently went to the homepage. Right when I was about to go back to the article I was looking at, their featured article caught my eye. It was titled the Million Dollar Homepage. After reading what it was, I googled the name of the creator and the first search result was The Million Dollar Homepage-Own a piece of history! which I promptly clicked to see what it was all about. Unfortunately all 1 million pixels have already been bought but I thought the whole idea and concept were pretty cool and extremely ingenious. 

One thing I found interesting is that the creator, Alex Tew, is from England but he still decided to call it The Million Dollar Homepage instead of The Million Pound Homepage. For more details, be sure to check out the FAQ page.

Hello everybody and welcome to my new blog.

You may be wondering why I am starting a new blog and the answer is because I wanted less structure. I wanted a place where I could talk about anything on my mind, or really anything at all, and get your feedback and I could not do that on my other blogs. My other blogs were each on one, solid topic, both of which didn't relate to what I wanted to do and were to limiting. 

To start off, I would like to thank all of my readers. You have been very supportive and given me some great feedback and for that I am grateful. Without you I definitely wouldn't have made it as far and I might not even be writing this now.

I would like to give a shout out to Erin Cree for being one of my great and supportive readers. She has shown much gratitude and has helped me along the way, both of which I am very appreciative of. Erin is a great story teller and I recommend you check out her work.

Secondly I would like to give a shout out to Fresh Writing. He is the one that got me started writing online and has been extremely helpful the entire way. He is probably my most supportive reader. Additionally, he is an excellent writer and I recommend you also check out his work if you have not done so already. In addition to his advice and support, he is co-writing Online Writing with me and his help and work there are very much appreciated and beneficial.

You can view their blogs, An uninspiring blog title, Take A Stand-Youth Voice, and Political and Intellectual Blog, along with many other enjoyable and interesting blogs in my blog list.

So thank you once again to Erin Cree, Fresh Writing and all of my readers.
