It is lighter than cotton, yet ounce for ounce it is stronger than steel. For decades scientists have studied the silk produced by orb-weaving spiders. Dragline silk-the strongest of the seven silks these spiders can spin-has attracted the most attention. It is tougher and more waterproof than silkworm strands, which are commonly used in clothing. The manufacturer of industrial fibers such as Kevlar requires high temperatures and the use of organic solvents. In contrast, spiders produce silk at room temperature, using water as a solvent. Furthermore, the dragline is also tougher than Kevlar. If enlarged to the size of a football field, a web of dragline silk could stop a jumbo jet in flight!

Not surprisingly, researchers are intrigued by the toughness of dragline silk. Scientists would like to exploit that property in items ranging from bulletproof vests to suspension cables for bridges. But replicating dragline silk is not easy, for the material is made inside the spider's body and the process is not yet fully understood.

Isn't it humbling to realize that a lot of smart people are trying to replicate what these tiny, little creatures in our basements can do naturally!

How different the world would be without birds! Their chirping, their songs, their varied colors and flight- all contribute to the beautiful variety of life. But how often do we stop to listen to and observe them? If you are a city dweller surrounded by the hustle and bustle of daily life and the noise of traffic, you may not even noticed the birds in your neighborhood. Even if you lived in the country side, it is easy to take them for granted.
But would you like to see your local birds close up?
You can do just that by means of a simple bird feeder in your backyard, places within range of a window. Then, all you need is a pair of binoculars and a camera with a good zoom lens- and a little patience! Have plenty of high-speed film at the ready and a good illustrated bird guide book for identification. Then watch, listen, and enjoy!

Sometimes I want to be like a bird, then i'll always fly away and move away. And yet I will always find my way back home, my home sweet home!

I had this weird feeling lately, I can't sleep at night. I crave for too much food, I don't like seeing bright lights, hearing sounds and every scent just lingers on. I'm scared when things like these happens, coz it only means one thing... I will see visions, visions that tells me my enemy is coming! And it did, my migraine attacks once again! I've been struggling with this painful enemy since I was 9 years old. The throbbing kind of pain in the one side of my head kills me for hours, and even for days. All I did was to lie down in my dark room while savoring the agony.
Oh migraine, my migraine!!! You are the only one capable of hurting me this way...huhu!

That's the reason why I haven't updated this blog for 4 days, I didn't even want to look at my laptop and think about turning it on. But I'm back! I'm fine now, though I haven't moved! Have alot of catching up to do...hayyyyy ...yawat nalang, hehe!

Thanks joanne for this "about mE" taggy tag... Haha.. facts about me...hmmmm...ok let me see... if there's something interesting or boring about me...hehe!

1. I am an OC (obssesive-compulsive). I'll loose my senses if my quirks are not done as it is,lol!

2. I can't eat something sweet and cold anymore....waaahhhhh! I have terrible tonsils!

3. I find it hard to make friends easily, reserved and intoverted, quite and mysterious..haha! Actually, it's really hard to get to know me, I'm a hard core to break. But to those who know me trulily, they will tell how crazy, silly and abnormal I am. Hey..I'm a good girl, hehe... I'm well-loved by those who truly know me.

4. I don't like beaches, oceans, or the sea. I find it soooo creepy. I'd rather be in the woods..hehe!

7. I'm very good at showing no emotions. That doesn't mean I'm insensitive, on the contrary I'm a very good observer, and my observations and theories are mostly tama... Responsive but not reactive, ganun ako.

8. Proud to be single since birth!!! Mabuhay ang mga mangkay....bwahahahaha!

Simple Rules:
1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

UnWeLcomed viSitor

Thursday, September 4, 2008

She arrived two days ago. Her presence gives me the weirdest feelings every time she's around. I'm always craving for something to eat, full yet hungry, starving yet full. I hate everyone around me, they seem to pissed me whenever she's around. I also feel so lazy and sleepy and tired. If my job will be done or not, I don't seem to care.

Why does she have to visit me every month??? The five days that she will be around are the ugliest days of my living. I can't think, I can't move, I can't have a good night sleep, I can't function!

But I know I have to deal with you all my life...or until I'm fifty,LOL!
Until then UnWelcomed Visitor!..hehe!
grrrrrr..I hate being a girl! toinkz!
