(Insert Superman Theme Song Here) It's SUPERGORE!!!

Al Gore is for sure something else, although, my term of choice would not be near the same as his own. First he was a statesman, then came the politician. Next thing we know he is supposedly the “father of the internet”. Shortly there after he is a world renown scientist and prophet. Now he is a poet. I guess, in his eyes, he is the closest thing the liberals can get to a renaissance man. Check out his “fine” poetry here.

Although the research is still in progress, there are some diseases that seem to have a good reaction to the mixture of honey and cinnamon. It is possible that this homeopathic therapy can cure things such as heart disease, obesity, bladder infections, and more. The healing properties have shown so far to be as effective or possibly more effective than your average drugs. Definitely something to look into anyways. Check it out in the article link below!

I’m not sure why, but for as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the weather. One of those things which have caught my attention the most has been lightning. Until a month or so ago, I was unaware that there was “upwards lightning” as described in the first article sited below. However, I watched a documentary on lightning about a month back on the Discovery Channel’s Raging Planet and toward the end they had some information on this phenomenon which is actually called sprites. I was, of course, hypnotized by this documentary and have been somewhat obsessed with sprites ever since. Anyway, here in the first article it makes it sound as though it has just been discovered, but it was actually first photographed by scientists in 1989. The second link is a video of sprites, and the third is a bit more information. It is very interesting and I thought maybe it would interest some other people out there as well.
