(Caution: Let cool. The Truth May be Too Hot to Handle)
This December 6, we give a shoutout to an unsung hero, the microwave. Patented by Raytheon in 1945, the inventor, Percy Spencer, discovered that microwaves are ideal for heating food when he noticed a chocolate bar melting in his pocket while experimenting with electromagnetic waves!
I'll never forget the first iPod I ever owned. I remember holding the strange rectangular device in my hands, trying to figure out which way I had to run my finger along the circular menu wheel in order to scroll up or down. I probably spent hours fidgeting with the darn thing before I realized how to work it.
Once the hard part was out of the way, I could never listen to music the same way again. Forget CDs and tape players; my trusty iPod Classic could take my favorite tunes along with me wherever I went.
And, as if that wasn't great enough on its own, it even included a few basic games for me to play on long car rides! But we can't forget the other iPods out there--you guys are special, too.
I think mosquitos are absolutely horrible. You could almost say they're worse than bees, honestly. Just think about it: How many times have you been bitten by a mosquito, versus being stung by a bee? Chances are, the former far outweighs the latter.
These blood-sucking monsters seem to possess the demonic ability to track down any form of human life and attack it with their needle-like noses, over and over. Even bug spray sometimes wasn't enough to stop their evil forces in this 1995 thriller movie, but I suppose it's better to try and fail than to simply surrender to their itchy vengeance.
