The Desolation of “Smog”: on pollution and ecology

Now, you people who are Tolkien fans such as myself will get this joke because of the latest hobbit movie, The Desolation of Smaug, which came out last year December the thirteenth. And for those of you who don’t get it, Smaug is a dragon. The Desolation of Smaug is the second movie in the hobbit, and as my mom says, Peter Jackson butchers the original stories from Tolkien literature. But that is beside the point. Smog is pollution. This post is about pollution. The Desolation of Smog is The Desolation of Pollution. Get the picture?

  Now, my mom says that someplace in China it is so Smoggy that they have a billboard up that shows what Sunrise looks like. I do not like those places and I wish they did not exist. Our beautiful Earth could be ruined sooner than we think, because of causes such as:

  • Pollution

  • Global warming a.k.a. climate change

  • Litter

And many other reasons. I think ECOLOGY (nature) should come before ECONOMY (money and all that). 

We need to preserve our precious and fragile Earth. It is beautiful (in most places). If you agree with me, please leave a comment after the beep.

A Breif Course on a Physicist’s birthday

On March 14, 1879, genius Albert Einstein was born!

On March 14, 2013, genius Albert Einstein will be turning 134!

Genius physicist Albert Einstein was a peace loving guy, although his theories led to the atomic bomb! His quote, “It would be a sad situation if the wrapper was better than the meat wrapped inside it” explains his choice of clothing. He wore wrinkled shirts, mismatch socks, pants that were too short, and had crazy hair!

The special theory of relativity, E=MC2, was his. E is energy, M is mass, and C2 is the speed of light in a vacuum. What it is saying is:

When a small amount of energy is converted to mass, a large amount of energy will be produced.

Albert Einstein is my favourite scientist. Then there’s Steve Spangler, then Marie Curie.

Scientific facts and such

Did you know that termites get flatulant after they eat? It’s true! Here are some super science facts for you! They’re all true!

Ever wonder why you get a runny nose? It’s because your body builds up more mucus to protect your lungs from bad things that you inhale, for example, dust, and other small particles. It’s really cool how your body does all these things.

If you’re feeling blue, here’s a fact for you! Your brain produces a chemical called oxytocin that can relieve stress! All you need to release it is a hug, or a handshake, or just think of someone special! Super convenient.

This fact is REALLY interesting. You have stomach acid n your tummy, and there is a layer in between your stomach acid and your stomach lining, but if that layer wasn’t there, your insides would be eaten up by the acid and you would die. Tragic way to die, don’t you think?

If you have any questions about science, know other interesting science facts, or just would like to chat, please leave a comment after the beep.
