She wants to know what would happen if a synchronized swimmer drown, would the rest of the team drown also?
Oh yes it happens a lot. That is why each country only has one team to compete in the Olympics. They were thinking of placing life guards in the pool while training but test showed they would get caught up with the swimmers and drown also.
No one! Why you ask.... silly you. You never asked any questions. I can't give out an award to someone when they don't ask a question. Heck practically Joe is the only one who has asked a question and he has already gotten an award. Now its your turn!
So you wont ask me a question then I have to think of one for you..... lets see......... Oh here's one. What are your hobbies, I have a lot of them. Mine are bike riding, picture taking and as I have mentioned rocks. Those are a few of them.... Blogging doesn't count we already know about that one.
Now you do understand this is a "Ask" blog I want you to ask questions. They can be about anything you want. Yeah I know I'm begging but I'm really good at it huh?
Okay the oldest thing I own..... It could be this little guy right here. They haven't been around for a while? I caught him running across the floor a while back and asked him to stick around. (I also asked him to cut his hair and put some clothes on and you see how well that worked) Oh wait!I have this arrow head, its really old, I mean it may not have been that long ago that it was used but you see its made from petrified wood. So its like a million years old! (and makes it very rare) But no it's not the oldest thing I own.... but this is!
See I told you it was older than anything else I own, and you thought I was crazy.
Oh what is it you ask.... You don't know? Okay than I will tell you.
This is an ORTHOCERAS, does that clear it up for you?.... No?
Okay here is the story. This very primitive member of the phylum cephalopoda are similar to the ammonite. Orthoceras are the ancestral cousin of the modern Squid or Octopus.
If you understand all that well you have done as much research on it as I have. Really, I like things that are 400 million years old. Yep, I got you all beat on this one. I love fossils, I have a few that I have found on the coast, but they are no where near the age of this. I once had a tooth that had not been identified yet and was thought to be around 65 million years old. I will tell you all about that one some day on my "what ever I want" blog. There are parts of the story that can't be told on this one. But there it is. I bet you have older things than you think just sitting around the house. You know most rocks are as old or older than dirt... That's how old I am 10 days older than dirt!
PS, as I did my spell check I think I overloade the system. This is what it came up with. I will give the choices that struck me as funny. Orthoceras = Outhouses WTF? Cephalopode = Scalloped Ammonite = Amount
Now I want you to play, if you read this please play along.... I know you come and look but I want you to play... It wont hurt I promise *wink, wink*
Tell me what is the oldest thing you own. (husband's and wife's don't count you don't own them you just rule over them) Now what is the oldest thing you own, is it that lucky shirt you wear for you favorite team. Or something you got from your mother. Now understand I'm not talking how long you have owned it it could be an antique you bought yesterday. I want to know OLD here people OLD!
I will tell you what mine is and even put up a picture in a day or two when the two of you have posted yours!
