The Powers of Ten!

(No, it's not your imagination running away with you or a tumor pressing up against your cerebral cortex, but you might just wish that were true. It's the Amish Tech Support Blog A Day Tour, here at A Small Victory for DJ's birthday!)

First off, I'd like to apologize to the owner of the site I had told I'd visit today instead of A Small Victory. My excuse is an idiot. I'm working on de-idioting myself. I beg forgiveness.

Now, on to the subject at hand. DJ has just turned ten. Ten is a very powerful number, science-wise. If you don't believe me, then you ought to visit one of my favorite web sites that proves that ten is powerful: The Powers of Ten.

Now that DJ is ten, he has the Powers of Ten. Show him that site, Michele. Let DJ know he has the Powers of Ten. Get him to kick some bully ass with them.

You know, when I turned ten, it was on October 10th. Three tens! Very powerful! Powers that could be used for Good...

Or Evil.

I chose Evil. A bookshelf fell on me. I couldn't get it off of me.

That day, I discovered the Powers of Yelling Really Loud For Someone To Get This Bookshelf Off Of Me.

So, happy birthday to DJ, and watch out for falling bookshelves.

(Thanks to Michele for inviting me here to post on the Tour, and hopefully she'll post a bunch of things to get this to scroll off the page before too many people give her crap about how lame I was.)

I haven't looked at this one too closely, but it did have a list of 10 things for older kids. Looks like an OK site. Frohe Geburtstag, DJ!

I was fortunate enough to see the original short film of this over 20 years ago. It made a profound and lasting impression on me. Here are a few other links.

Happy Birthday, DJ.

Well, I do have a brain tumor, and it's pressing against my brainstem. And I've had a brainstem stroke as well.

But I haven't lost my sense of humor, and I enjoy reading your posts, so please continue.
