Breakthrough on something, at least

Well that's kind of embarassing. 

After recovering from the food poisoning I had last night(I'm fine now, by the way.) I took a look at this blog and saw the post I made last night. Truth be told, I barely remember making it, and half of it is wrong to boot. 

First of all, there was nothing interesting about Lillith's dorm break-ins. They were solved by, surprisingly enough, the campus police - it was some frat boys wanting to get their hands on some women's underwear. I guess they belonged to the cross-dressing fraternity or something like that -as I can think of better stuff to steal in dorm rooms. 

Second, I did speak to Lillith again over Skype, but nothing in the conversation I want to share with the Internet - that shit is private, thank you very much. But I will say she does have a new beau, which makes me both happy for her and insanely jealous. 

There is a bit of good news I have in regards to that damned note that I got a few days ago. Robert suggested that I run it through a word-scrambler. And, 'lo and behold, it worked(I was, as usual, over-thinking shit again) and, thus, the note translated is:




...Aside from the bad grammar involved with the last words, I'm stumped to it's meaning. Either I've attracted the attention of crazed environmentalists who hate me taking pictures of trees and taking small quantities of soil, or the shit I've read online actually has some merit(the notes, insanity, and the bad endings?). Either way, I don't like it - but it's not going to stop me from pursuing my hobby. 

As per usual, I promised you people tree-facts, and thus, I have delivered! 

1. One of the tallest soft wood trees is the General Sherman, a giant redwood sequoia of California. General Sherman is about 275 ft or 84 m high with a girth of 25 ft or 8 m. I've been there, and I've seen it - it's a massive tree, even without it's main branch missing(it fell off in 2006). 

2. An average American uses about 750 pounds of paper every year, and 95% of homes are built using wood. That means each person uses the equivalent of one 100 foot tall, 16 inch diameter, tree every year for their paper and wood product needs.

3. A mature tree removes almost 70 times more pollution then a just-planted tree. 

Sad to say, but I'm running out of facts. I'll have to dig around the websites I use and find some.
