IT'S FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Pacer's play tonight. They play Cleveland. Cleveland beat us by 30 points the other night. I blame Jamaal Tinsley. He's back, and we are losing. Go figure. Hopefully we will win tonight. We have had too big of a losing streak going on. The sad thing is we will still make the playoffs. At this point, we are only one game above 500. What's that about? Hopefully this new guy will give our team some chemistry.

Math...math is fun, but I think I am getting some sort of addiction to it or something. I mean, I am willing to actually sit down do math proofs for hours on end. What's that about??? Well maybe that's because I am taking some killer grad courses, and they require me to actually think. It's a tough job yo.

Last night, I was pondering zero. How do we know that zero is actually nothing? I was catching up with a friend, and this became the topic of conversation. I was telling him that I know the proof for why something times zero is zero (in a ring of course). He was saying that it is obvious because the summation of nothing is nothing. So how do we know zero is nothing? He brought up the point of negative numbers. How do we know negative numbers exist? They actually didn't along with irrational numbers and such. Did you know that the person who discovered that the square root of two was irrational "died in a shipwreck?" The Pythagorean clan didn't want that getting out. They expressed things in lengths so they didnt have to bother with irrationals. that's off the point. Still zero...a weird number...i do think...I never really have thought about it. Still, when I think of what zero is, I think of it as the additive identity...not as how did the concept of it being nothing come about? Let me know what you think...

proof that God exists...

So I took the GRE yesterday. It went pretty good. I'm glad to have it done. I have a few minutes before I go to linear algebra. I pretty much gave up on my homework so now I can post.

When I was in Arizona, I went and visited my mom's church. It was a little church where most of the people were over 70. My mom had me sing a duet with her. That was about as fun as you can get. Let me tell you. The old ladies are saying oh she looks just like her mother! Oh yes...that's definetly a great thing to hear.

Anyway the sermon was entitled three commonplace proofs that God exists. So I am gearing myself up to hear some kick ass proofs that God exists. Then he begins...

The first proof that God exists is life. Now how does life prove that God exists?? itself of course. Because there is life, there has to be a life giver... WOW!
Second proof that God exists is law. The way that law proves that God exists are the very laws themself. He then rips out some science...mentions gravity. Because there is gravity God exists.

The third proof that God exists is you see where this is going...

He then continues to tell us we can use this when talking to "the lost." If someone asks you how you know God exists...just whip out your commonplace proofs! It's so simple!

I don't suggest that any of you try this approach if you want to prove God exists. It's not very solid. I wish I could do math proofs like this. Let's see...

Prove that the sqare root of 2 is an irrational number...
proof: The square root of 2 IS a rational number!

Nope...doesn't work...

i know i know

I know I said I would give a full update today...but I don't have time. School was a bit crazy since I was gone last week. Plus, I am taking the GRE tomorrow, so I have been getting ready for it. Wish me luck! Arizona was good. The grand canyon was awesome. Have you ever been there? I can imagine being the first person to discover it...if it would have been me, I probably would have missed it and walked right over the edge. Ok...I will give more bits and pieces after I finish the GRE!

I am back from Arizona!

It was a long trip. I plan on sitting down tomorrow for a bit and writing all about it.

Peace Out

Greetings from New Mexico!


I am nearly finished with my cross country trek.

I went to the largest Mcdonalds in the world for lunch.

More later.

I'm going to bed.

Well kids...

I survived the whole wisdom teeth ordeal. I still am in pain...but it's getting better. I leave for Arizona go visit my mom. That should be fun. I am going to run in a mini-marathon on sunday. That probably won't be as fun. I am sooo not ready.

I started class yesterday...math math and more math.

I may not update while I am out there. I will try to if anything crazy interesting happens. I don't think anything will.

You know what's really annoying??? When you buy something, leave the store, get home and realize they left the security tag on your clothes. Then you have to go back to the store and get them to take it off. That's two trips for one stupid shirt. Why didn't the alarm go off so I would know something was wrong? So sometime before I leave to Arizona, I need to get back to the mall, get them to remove the tag, and get the shirt to my dad so my dad can mail it to my sister in Kuwait...ARG!

I'm back at work...

and it's a blast....the week off was nice.

Brian T. and his dad went to go get Playoff tickets for the Colts yesterday. His lottery number was the first one he became first in line. To those people who camped outside allnight...SUCKERS!!! He was the 648th or something to get a ticket. That's pretty he got his picture taken by all the news interviewed...his picture was on the frontpage of the paper...

Here is the story if you want to read it.

I went to the Pacer game last night. I am sort of pissed at them right now because they are playing absolutely terribly. They must have been pissed at themselves too because they were on fire. They ended up winning by 20 points. They only had one regular starter out there playing the whole game. That's the problem. We need to get rid of our starters. Tinsley and O'neil are inconsistent and of course there is Artest and he just is crazy. I like Foster and Jackson hasn't done anything to make me hate him just yet. If they would have lost last night...I may of had to right them off...find a new team to root for. They can't play with my emotions like that!

I laughed my booty off...

Tyannnanana posted this on her blog and I found it hilarious... basically because she thought of me when she saw it. If you have seen my dancing video...then you would know why she thought of me...

look at it...

I get my wisdom teeth out on is going to suck bad.

I mean really bad...I hate pain.

any advice?
