From laundry to movies to law of thermodynamics

There’s really nothing on my mind right now, but it’s been a while since my last blog, so I’ll try to write something.

So, okay, renxkyoko Iglesias here… musing 

I got this Stats email from WordPress. My stats figures are pitifully low since they include the whole 12 months of 2010. I started blogging in May 0f 2010 on Live Spaces. Live Spaces did not give stats figures, and it, in fact , decided to junk its blogging site and move all its bloggers to WordPress. I ” migrated” to WordPress on Oct. 1 , 2010.  Anyway……. I’ve made my own stats for the 3 month period , starting on Oct. 1, my first day here on WordPress, and this is what I have…. I average 24.6 readers a day. The most number of readers I had was on Dec.30, 2010, on blog entitled ” Last Random Thoughts Before the Year Ends “, with 91 readers and 28 comments.  Is that average of about 25 readers a day  a good figure or what ? (^__^) ” . In my first month of blogging here, there were days when I only had  1 or 2 readers, or none at all.  So , I guess my readership has improved.  But , frankly, I’m not aiming for great stats figures. I just want to write down my thoughts, 99% of which are totally random, and , I have to admit, boring. I mean, like right now, it’s 5:58 AM, and I’m actually doing my laundry, and while waiting for my clothes to dry, I decide to blog.  Now, I don’t know what I find more interesting at this moment,  blogging, or  staring at my clothes  getting cleaned in the washer .  At this very moment, believe it or not, I find doing the laundry more interesting. Why is that , you ask.  Well, I am thinking of how , with just a small amount of soap, and a little agitation, clothes get cleaned.  Common sense, right? Of course, it is.  Soap molecules get hold of the dirt, then are washed away by water.  But then, I’m always  thinking of a more complicated , scientific explanation than plain common sense, because, to be honest, I find science beautiful and fascinating.  Don’t worry, I’m not going into the hows and whys of it all. I’m just saying.

Washing and drying done.  \(^_^)/ Back to the mundane task of blogging.,……. 

Yesterday, I watched this movie titled Passengers starring Anne Hathaway and Patrick Wilson.  I don’t know if this movie is a thriller or drama…. maybe a little bit of  both.  I like the movie , as usual. Is it a good movie ? I don’t know.  I don’t analyze. I’m too shallow. Hahaha !  I mean,  I can watch movies with the most ridiculous, ludicruos and absurd plots, and  still  like them… like Invasion from Mars and The Blob kind of movie.  It doesn’t mean that I like ALL movies. I don’t like The English Patient and Shakespeare in Love kind of  stories, nor mob, Mafia and gangster type. Anyway, back to Passengers……. A passenger plane crashes, and there are a few survivors, including Patrick Wilson. Anne Hathaway is a crisis and trauma therapist, and the movie starts with Hathaway having therapy sessions with survivors of the plane crash. But then, survivors begin to disappear one by one after one survivor reveals he heard an explosion before the crash.  Hathaway  suspects there’s a cover-up going on and starts to investigate.  So, okay, I have to stop here before I give away the story. Suffice it to say there’s a surprise  twist at the end. The twist is not original , though. There are actually quite a number of  movies that have similar endings.  If you’re interested to know what the ending is, watch PASSENGERS.

By the way,  do you know why a car tire becomes hard and firm when we add air? Again, common sense, right ?  Air molecules have mass and therefore they  fill the space in the tire making it hard and firm, not loose.  But, there is a more scientific explanation for that and it has something to do with Entropy, the second Law of  Thermodynamics.  It’s the tendency of the universe to go from order to disorder. Or to put it more simply, it’s the tendency of molecules to disperse from confined space to less confined space.  The molecules so want to escape that they look for pathways, desperately hitting the walls of the tire. Now this hitting of the walls is the reason why the tire becomes firm and hard.

Wooo! I am almost done with God of War 3. I ‘ve already killed 3 main bosses.  Two more , then Zeus!

Wow. I managed to write something.

Well, this is all for now. Don’t get bored, okay? PEACE!!!

    Kick Zeus’s back side girl!

    Yeah, so people don’t understand how a flat tire works…It can be rather hard to blog at times, I have a big one in mind. LOL, I just want to see what people think of it, since you and I already don’t believe in the BS of 2012…later

  2. I found it easier to kill a greek god than solving a puzzle. It took me a while to solve one.

    Didn’t I have toilet paper as a topic on my blog? Hahaha What next? We need a life, Alex!!! LOL

    • No, I won’t stop blogging. My problem is I do have a very uninteresting daily routine. But, it looks like one course I’m taking now, Epidiomology , will turn out to be interesting, so, maybe I can share that here.

  4. I LOVE this. I often find myself staring at the washing machine and wondering exactly how clothes get squeaky clean with a little drum rotation. But obv, it’s more complicated than that!

  5. You are also adding more energy to the system when you add air to the tire. This makes the molecules collide with each other and the tire wall more often too.
