The Folks Who Gave Me Their DNA

from wikipedia: During the 1700s, Dutch microscopist Antonie van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723) discovered "animalcules" in the sperm of humans and other animals. Some scientists speculated they saw a "little man" (homunculus) inside each sperm. These scientists formed a school of thought known as the "spermists". They contended the only contributions of the female to the next generation were the womb in which the homunculus grew, and prenatal influences of the womb. An opposing school of thought, the ovists, believed that the future human was in the egg, and that sperm merely stimulated the growth of the egg. Ovists thought women carried eggs containing boy and girl children, and that the gender of the offspring was determined well before conception.
However you look at it - without these two getting together you'd be looking at an empty page right now.

random sentences.

Dancing cigarettes are harder to light.

Mediocrity is fine!

On Thursdays Velma Twinger always made time to chat with the older dolphins, even though their indifference to her night scrapbooking class made V feel somewhat melancholy.

I don't mind church services but i'd like them more if they just happened once every ten years as a reenactment.

Most people wouldn't even bother reading this sentence if they knew beforehand it was just going to end like this.

$13,457,601,882.13 is faster to write than thirteen billion, four hundred and fifty seven million, six hundred and one thousand, eight hundred and eighty two dollars and thirteen cents.

But as the crow flies, this sentence is even shorter.

The previous random sentence has little or no meaning depending on how the preferences on your computer are set, but as this blog is not about explaining itself and more about the fun-ness of words and image i would be remiss to not mention that 82% of art is rectangular.
