Learning in Wonder

Do you read The Marginalian?  If not, I would highly recommend that you do.  There are always ideas that make me say, “Hmmm…wow…interesting, I had not thought about that in that way.”  Here is a tidbit that was posted and sent to me (yes, you should sign up for the free newsletter and donate, too).

From a child you can learn

1) to always to be happy;
2) never to sit idle;
3) to cry for everything you want.

From a thief you can learn

1) to work at night;
2) that if you cannot gain what you want in one night to try again the next night;
3) to love your co-workers just as thieves love each other;
4) to be willing to risk your life even for a little thing;
5) not to attach too much value to things even though you have risked your life for them — just as a thief will resell a stolen article for a fraction of its real value;
6) to withstand all kinds of beatings and tortures but to remain what you are;
7) to believe that your work is worthwhile and not be willing to change it.

Our Beautiful Earth

Let's take care of it, and each other.

Rotation of the Planets

 The earth takes 24 hours to rotate once.  OK, it's really 23.75 hours, but who needs to be exact...except during leap year.  But how about the other planets?

Glad you asked!  Take a look at this Tweet and learn about the rotation of the other planets.  Pay attention, too, to the direction of rotation.  Thank you to NASA and The Wonder of Science!
