Stirring Tea
I was absentmindedly stirring a cup of hot tea, when I got to thinking, "aren't I actually adding kinetic energy into this cup?" I know that stirring does help to cool down the tea, but what if I were to stir it faster? Would I be able to boil a cup of water by stirring?

  Wed. 11/13/13 9:23am Sam:

By stirring it you're just speeding up the process of entropy that makes the heat leave the tea. You are adding a trivial amount of energy, but that's offset by the fact that you're stimulating the process of heat loss. At least that's my take on it.

When in Montauk I collect and dispose of any plastic bags I find on the beach so's the sea turtles don't ingest. Evidently they sometimes mistake them for jellyfish. The resulting intestinal obstruction can cause the poor critters to starve to death.

Why does Ken keep saying dunkey?
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 9:58am Bryant:

The Donkey Step is a rare but unique dance style. This is only used by the slickest male cats in the club. When the time is right and such a pimp has the spotlight on him, he will begin to tap his right foot and from there on he will prance around in circles jerking his body around like a donkey galloping. This dance style seems to work in nervous moments and makes other males in the club fools while seducing any female watching this manly gallop. (Thanks, Urban Dictionary!)

You glance at this beautiful humming thing flying around you in the garden and just when you think is a beautiful humming it turns out to be a moth from hell! They scare the Jesus out of me. It's like those big birds they were once flying low around me under a tree in a tropical area. But they were no birds but flying mokeys from hell! Well, actually they were big bats that look like flying monkeys. Very scary.

HUMMINGBIRDS - i've only seen them twice, and 1 time was in wash sq park, years ago. now i'm wondering if it was a moth. [i heard ken's KICKSTARTER idea for tonight's 7SD. and i just thought of one. now to figure out its (low) cost.]
