Monday evening study hall

I think we should repent for all our Friday and Sunday carousing, so that we can do it again this weekend with a clear conscience.

So welcome to The Universe 101.

Facts presented here need not be useful or true, or even interesting. They just need to build character. Or something.

Me first.

The opposite of absolute zero (0 degrees Kelvin) is Planck's Temperature, 10^32 degrees Kelvin, the hottest possible temperature. I'm not sure how they figured that out, but it sounds pretty danged hot.

i am desperately trying to find something to say that is not copy pasted


edit:
ctrl + alt + apple + 8 makes the screen go negative. This is good when your eyes are tired from reading articles.

^^For future reference, I'm not above copy paste.

Negative screen thingie...such a remarkably neato idea that it's amazing any of us boobs on earth thought of it.

I forgot to say that none of this will be on the test.

Here Pearl you can borrow one of mine, but do you have a spare giraffe I can use...I promise I'll give it back.

BTW kleenex started out as gas mask filters. I learned this is my highschool history class but I don't remember the year.

This is Indonesia's Rafflesia arnoldii, the world's largest flower:

If you've seen its picture before, you probably remember that it smells like rotting meat and is sometimes called the "corpse flower." What I like about it is that, in keeping with its overall ickyness, it's parasitic and lives only on a member of the grapevine family, Cissus angustifolia. It has no apparent roots, leaves, or stem, and it is pollinated by the flies that turn up looking for rotting monkey flesh. The hole in the center holds several quarts of hideously disgusting water.

Just in case anyone was looking for prom corsage ideas.
