idk

As the title suggests, I don’t know what to do. I was thinking of making a cooking vid but then I thought I would save the recipe for when Riley and I do a cooking collab possibly.

So my March books are going well, and I’ve got to hurry up to fit in the deadline. Reviews for the books will come soon, so if you are thinking about reading them, hopefully that will help.

And now an interview with my little brother.

Q: What is your favorite type of coin?

A: Quarters. Well, pennies and dimes and stuff, they’re small, they don’t have a lot of value. And, um there are half dollars and others.. but they’re hard to find and you wouldn’t find a place to use them.

Q: If you could create one Pokemon, what would it be named and what would its moves/type be?

Well, its type would be dragon and fire, its name would be Tyrangue and um its moves would be Dual Chop, Dragon Breath, Flamethrower, and Overheat.

Q: If you could have any other name, what would it be and why?

I would be Adam because well Adam is just a cool name. It’s short, its not that special, but you also don’t see it all the time.

Q: What is your biggest regret in life?

Um, well *waits for 45 seconds* I don’t know.

And that is Eliot Watson, my co-host in the Nerd and His Brother whenever we get that done!

Let’s see….

I’ve got a boring homework packet just like Victoria and Riley.

OH! I have started guitar and Riley already posted about that you can check that out here.

Like for run on sentences!

And since Riley didn’t do a Dictionary Taboo, I will.

Dictionary Taboo:

Something some people can’t eat it, but makes delicious food like ice cream.

 

Also let me know if that was too easy or too difficult.

 

I’ll see you guys later and as I always say:

Did you hear Willie Nelson got run over by a car?

  1. hello. i must comment because i noticed that you hold a certain fondness for pennies and tHIS MUST GO.

    The cost to make a penny is about 1.5 cents (compared to the 1.43 cents it cost to make in 2015…). The Mint could save ~$53 million if it simply eliminated the penny, following the example of Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

    okay i will leave now that has been your daily fact of the day sorry for intruding goodbye

      • Very interesting article. I’m still sticking to my side, though, but it was nice seeing the other sides’ point of view. Thanks for taking the time to do the research. Often, people blindly jump into an opinion. Not many people take the time to research anything anymore.

        Here’s where I relay my journey of how I came to be anti-penny.

        This situation came into light when I was visiting the Smithsonian in DC. There was an exhibit titled “A Penny For Your Thoughts?” that listed the pros and cons of keeping the penny. A few months later, I came across this video: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77C47XYm_3c ((take a look at the comments too))] where John Green of the Vlogbrothers ((and John Green of The Fault in Our Stars, if that means anything to you)) discussed his virulent hatred for pennies ((also nickels)) in the span of less than four minutes of fiery passion. I was hooked. In my research on the topic, I came across this video: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSVfgnaF34c] where John Green ((the very same)) got the chance to interview President Obama to get his opinion on the elimination of the penny. No, he didn’t commit to changing it, but he still says some important things about the government in general, and there is an archived petition on the White House government page ((You can find the dead link on John Green’s Tumblr: [http://fishingboatproceeds.tumblr.com/post/10621994049/so-in-ap-english] Perhaps it’d be of interest to read his post as well. Apparently, the elimination of the penny was the topic for the 2008 AP Argument Essays…)) Also consider the fact that he ((Obama)) did once say, “Anytime we’re spending money on something that people don’t use, it’s something we should change.”

        It would be nice to get the petition back up. With Trump in office, we’ll have to start all over again, and I doubt he’ll be interested in such matters. However, it will lower the amount of money taxpayers will have to pay, and that seems to be something he could be interested in ((although I’m not too clear on his intentions at this point to be honest)).

        Thanks for hearing me out. I’m very passionate about these things, so I apologize for the long comment. Here’s to a possible future where we can live in a penniless ((and nickel-less, and dollar bill-less…)) world.

      • I agree totally with that view. I love vlogbrothers and I have actually seen both videos you mentioned. The president Obama one was actually quoted in that article I believe! And as from Trump, I will direct you to two John Green vlogbrothers videos. 1) my information diet and 2) trumps budget explained. The first one is about not letting the depressing world get to you and the second one is just more on what we can expect from our President (although as you said nothing is too clear right now or ever with him)

      • Fellow Nerdfighter? Awesome! And yes, I have seen both of those videos, and they were very helpful! Thanks for the encouragement.

        One more question: do you know anything about tuataras?

      • I regret to inform you I have no idea what they are. But the beauty of the internet is in less than 5 minutes I can become a tuatara expert. Also nerd fighters rock, hopefully I’ll be at nerdcon 2018

      • OKAY IM GOING TO GET REALLY EXCITED BECAUSE JOHN IS LEADING THIS REALLY EXTENSIVE SCAVENGER HUNT THAT YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN. GO READ THE PINNED COMMENT OF “YOU ARE HERE” AND THEN START WITH THE UNDERSTANDING TRUMP VIDEO.
