Why the hell not?

I took this from Kender. I figure i could use a couple of suggestions. Plus i am too swamped to do the political stuff(later on tonight, i hope, we will get back to that). But anyway, give this a try will ya? First, recommend to me: 1. A movie: 2. A book: 3. A musical artist, song, or album: B. I want everyone who reads this to ask me three questions, no more, no less. Ask me anything you want. Oh, and if you don't want to write those suggestions of questions here in the comments section, then please e-mail them to me. I am game if you are! C. Then, I want you to go to your blog, copy and paste this allowing your friends to ask you anything they want. (Optional)

To mr. Anonymous,

Question 1: Have you been to the pyramids?
No, born and raised in egypt and never once visited them. Of course man i have been to the pyramids. duhhh!

Question 2: Do you think American popular culture is a carbuncle on the ass of Western Civilization?

I can see why you would think that, but trust me, it's nothing compared to the european popculture scene, or at least the german one. Their teen magazines have sections where 12 and 13 year olds can write about their first time having sex (the average age to lose it is 13 in germnay and 14 in austria) and boy bands are acceptable musicians by the male hetrosexual population. Trust me, the American pop culture scene could be far worse then it already is.

Question 3: Do you get beat up on regular basis when
people discover you are the Sandmonkey?

No one has discoverd me yet. I told 2 people who are my friends about this blog and they didn;t tell anyone. i am not even sure i am that known in egypt. Plus, they can;t beat me up. Me is tough!

Okay. Here's my kick at the can.

Movie: The Killing Fields

Book: A World Lit Only By Fire: The Medieval Mind and the Renaissance by William Manchester

Musical artist, song or album: Joni Mitchell (had to give you some Canadian content)

Question 1: Why is the sky blue?

Question 2: If a train leaves Toronto at 8:24 am, heading west at 98 miles per hour and another leaves Vancouver at 7:32 pm heading east at 78 miles per hour, what time is it in China when the trains pass.

Question 3: Why is Mona Lisa smiling?

Oops! Forgot the question mark on the second question. Here it is. ?

Question 1: Why is the sky blue?

The phenomenon known as Rayleigh scattering is responsible for that. It is the scattering of electromagnetic radiation by particles with dimensions much smaller than the wavelength of the radiation, resulting in angular separation of colors and responsible for the reddish color of sunset and the blue of the sky.

Question 2: If a train leaves Toronto at 8:24 am, heading west at 98 miles per hour and another leaves Vancouver at 7:32 pm heading east at 78 miles per hour, what time is it in China when the trains pass.

Provided there is actual railroads that would cover that distance (and the water) and that also happens to be parallel to eachother, the train would pass around 2:34 am the next day Beijing Time. if you doubt this answer you can check for yourself. :P

Question 3: Why is Mona Lisa smiling?

You should've seen what Leonardo was wearing that day.


Any other questions Louise? :)

Two out of three ain't bad. The answer to question 2 is: The westbound train derailed near Thunder Bay, so it's a moot point.

That's all the questions for now.
