1."When does HAL learn to program himself to be smarter  in a runaway feedback loop of increasing intelligence?


2.  Who was Srinivasa Ramanujan and why is his math still so crucial?


3. Are there really at least 26 dimensions as Einstein predicted?


4. Why are doorways so short in American homes?


5.  Who decided that studs where only 8 feet long?


6. Are green eyes recessive in California Desert Tortoises?


7. Does Somerset Maugham kill off all his lead characters?


8.How do we signal the Aliens to get their butts back here and save our bacon?


9. Why do people hide and ship tiny amounts of meat , trying to get them through customs?  What's the point?!


10. In my next life,  do I get to be a ballerina in the American Ballet Theatre?


11. Will the Monarch butterflies make it?


12. Is a baseball game shorter or longer if your favorite team is losing?


13. Was this list any fun to read?  I enjoyed writing it.


HAPPY T13!

    1. American doors finish out at 80 inches. And you can't believe everything you read on the internet, we have nine foot ceilings and our house was built in the late 1950's. The doors I'm going by are in Europe, the continental part. They have very tall doors, but then maybe the Danes started it. heehee. The Scandinavians are pretty tall people!

    1. Me also, Mia. I'm worried. At least there is a move to free up the rivers of useless, outmoded dams that killed off the salmon, and other fish, runs.

    1. Right you are Heather. Bees and all the other insect pollinators are in danger. I'll be around to read yours and all the other T13's this evening. I am nutty this time of year, even in the best of times.

  7. I think in your next life you get a chance to be anything you want. So I hope you get to be a ballerina, if that is your wish. And yes, this was fun to read!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it CountryDew. And, hopefully, neither of us have to come back to this circus and crapshoot because this time was a nightmare. I want to sing with the angels for a long LONG time. ;o)
