Day 374

1. Reading about a video game targeted to tween girls that was designed to teach them how to write computer code.  Researchers conducted experiments to test the effectiveness of the game, and during post-experiment interviews found that the girls felt “empowered” after playing the game. (Not to mention they learned a skill that will set them up for strong success in the future!).  So, so awesome.

2. Seeing little pops of hope in a run down, beat up part of town.  (Small works of public art; cleaned-up businesses; newly established charter schools and other civic projects…all promising signs.)

3. In cleaning out a bunch of files today, I ran across these.  I *adore* a good Chuck Norris joke; I hope at least a few of these make you smile, too.  🙂

  • When Chuck Norris smoked his first cigarette, the cigarette coughed.
  • Jack Daniel wakes up in the morning and complains he’s had too much Chuck Norris the night before.
  • Chuck Norris was denied auditioning for Mission Impossible, for obvious reasons.
  • Area 51 is Chuck Norris’ playground.
  • Chuck Norris threw a pebble once. We now call it Haley’s Comet.
  • When Chuck Norris jumps in water he doesn’t get wet – the water gets Chuck Norris.
  • Chuck Norris has never worn glasses. If he can’t see it, it doesn’t exist.
  • If Chuck Norris ever went on Jeopardy they would have to rename it Catastrophe.
  • Chuck Norris only works out once a year – that’s about all the gym equipment can take.
  • When anyone asks, “Who’s your daddy?”, the answer is always Chuck Norris.
