Bald bears

So I've been hearing that various hair related products can make certain people go bald. Hair straighteners and hair dyes mainly. I don't know if it's true, but I don't see why people would take that risk. Clearly they are working on their hair because they value hair that looks nice, but people that care how their hair looks are the ones it would be worse for in going bald. If I went bald I don't think I'd care that much. As long as I've got my beard I'm happy. Happy beard day by the way. Actually I probably would go the comb over and it would look terrible. I don't really care about that at this point though. I might when it happens. It will happen though. My ancestors are balding, on both sides of my family. I would like to do that rad thing with my hair that the Japanese men often do if I go bald. It might be called a top knot, I'm not sure. I'm definitely going to curse people who call me bald in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears will come out of the woods and tear up forty-two lads of their number. It would be especially impressive considering the lack of bears in Australia. Maybe koala bears... I like how many people like to say "They're not really bears!" I reckon they just crack down on the koala because Australia already has more than its quota of dangerous animals, and bears are dangerous so Australia can't have them. All our animals are small anyway. All the deadly ones are things like spiders and snakes. I want a big bear. Or a tiny monkey. Can someone please buy me a pygmy marmoset? Also a teacup pig so I can have my monkey ride a pig. It'd be so cool.

The Easter bunny and the weird guy at uni

Just read this:

"if the easter bunny isn’t real, how about this

my dad had a car accident when I was little from swerving to avoid hitting a rabbit

both him and the rabbit died

and from that day forward, I never got easter eggs on easter"

It didn't say who wrote it though...

There's a guy at uni who does gardening and stuff. I assume that he is employed by the uni to do it because he's there a lot. Sometimes he'll notice me go past when he's digging, or whatever he might be doing at the time. It's mostly digging. He doesn't seem to like me, he's got this glare that he gives me every time he sees me. I generally go back out of the uni the same way I come in and the times he's noticed me he always get a "Snake sighted in area" sign and points it out to me on my way home.

Hyundai excel's unhealthy breakfast

I placed some things of butter on a friend's car. It was about 175 ish, it didn't cover anywhere near as much space as I thought it would.

Edit: the car's owner took this photo:

I'm not good at making eggnog

Last night Le Tour de France started again. It was rad! It almost always is. There were a few people watching there, but everyone else fell asleep or left during it. There was an event just after the 20 km mark, a woman standing on the side of the road was hit by one of the riders and there was a major crash. I was annoyed enough at this woman, so I can only imagine how cut the riders would have been after riding for hours trying to stay with the pack. Stupid spectator.

We decided to make eggnog, but it wasn't very nice. We ended up making pancakes out of it, which was much more enjoyable.

I'm going away twice for a couple of camps this tour, so I might end up missing some of the stages. That would be pretty disappointing, I'm going to try to make sure I see all of them.

I also think I use too many commas. I don't really mind about that though.

I recently did a presentation at uni about the issues with teaching about the Indigenous Peoples' culture and history. I included a short clip from the movie The Tracker

Overall I think the presentation went well. I talked about how we can't teach something that we don't understand and the diversity of the Indigenous Peoples.

Also I have a mullet and it is cool and I don't care what you say about it.

Sometimes I see people and see similarities between them and other people I know, I'll say "Hey he looks like George Lucas!" or "She looks like Rowan Atkinson! Ugh..." and people will respond with something along the lines of "Whatever." or "No she doesn't... dare you to tell her. (Those examples both actually happened, and nobody told her.) Nobody seems to agree with my comparisons, I always feel amazed that nobody can see it. So tell me, am I crazy, or does Bear Grylls kind of look like Tim Allen from 20 years ago?I guess it's mainly the eyes that make me think they look similar, but nobody agrees with me normally, so I'm ready to be told I'm wrong. They are both good at surviving too, Bear Grylls survives incredible situations out in the wild, and Tim Allen somehow managed to survive 3 whole Santa Clause movies.

Hairy situation

I managed to get my hair caught in the window of my car driving on the freeway, that's a pretty good sign that I need a haircut soon. I was able to keep my cool and not crash into the people around me though. Actually I reckon it could make me safer, not only would my seatbelt stop me from flying through the windscreen in the event of a crash, but so would my hair that is caught in the window. That's going to come standard in most new cars from now on, but you should still ask to make sure, demand a hair catching window in your next car, for your safety and the safety of your family.
