My Hobbies & Interests

  • My favorite music
    Anything, really. Spiritual music comes first, though. Then comes anything that resounds with my heart.
  • My favorite movies
    Way too little on the big screen. Way too much on Netflix.
  1. “Coming right up” is the response I get, lol. And it’s always better when it’s made by someone dear to you. (Don’t ask me to give you the data on that one.)
  2. There are so many people who can stand only Earl Grey when there are so many different varieties with different qualities. I wonder why that is.
  3. I imagine this boy must have been a pathological smiler, then...
  4. Sip or Slurp?

    Did he sip or slurp, tho?
  5. Maybe. Until you get a disease that can only really be treated with antibiotics, and it’s not available. It’ll toss us back to the Middle Ages. Same goes if antibiotics is used too much and resistance becomes prevalent.
  6. Today’s a very special day—it’s national pecan cookie day. And yes, it’s perfecly ok to observe it. If the body does not get enough zinc, it may have difficulty producing testosterone —a key hormone in initiating sexual desire in both men and women. Pecans provide nearly 10 percent of the recommended Daily Value for zinc. It would take 11,624 pecans, stacked end to end, to reach the top of the Empire State Building in New York City. Texas adopted the pecan tree as its state tree in 1919. In fact, Texas Governor James Hogg liked pecan trees so much that he asked if a pecan tree could be planted at his gravesite when he died. Albany, Georgia, which boasts more than 600,000 pecan trees, is the pecan capital of the U.S. Albany hosts the annual National Pecan Festival, which includes a race, parade, pecan-cooking contest, the crowning of the National Pecan Queen and many other activities. Pecan trees usually range in height from 70 to 100 feet, but some trees grow as tall as 150 feet or higher. Native pecan trees—those over 150 years old—have trunks more than three feet in diameter. Pecans in space: it would take a line of over 10 billion pecans to reach the moon! Would you go nuts for a refreshing dip in the pool? You’d need a lot of pecans—144 million to be exact—to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Pecans come in a variety of sizes—mammoth, extra large, large, medium, small and midget. They also come in several forms including whole pecans, pecan halves, pieces, granules and meal. There are over 1,000 varieties of pecans. Many are named for Native American Indian tribes, including Cheyenne, Mohawk, Sioux, Choctaw and Shawnee. Before a shelled pecan is ready to be sold, it must first be cleaned, sized, sterilized, cracked and finally, shelled.
  7. I hope the branch is made aware of this. They usually do not appreciate the abuse of our publications. Johan
  8. You're right. I answered a later question. And vlc is a good tool for many things, but probably not the best one for that, although you can do it, just one I had tried and had on my device. Johan
  9. The post was in response to how to stream over data. There are other, more specialised, apps for downloading files to play offline, such as VLC. Johan
  10. It's a setting you can activate in iOS by going to Settings > JW Library > Streaming and Downloading. Johan
  11. Some do, some don't. If it's required for good manners in your society, you probably should. If not, do as you wish, or what comes naturally. I found a post with all sorts of theories concerning the reasons some people extend that particular digit while drinking a beverage from a glass: https://www.quora.com/Why-do-people-extend-their-pinky-finger-when-taking-a-drink-from-a-glass Johan
  12. Cars in the NS?

    Living crocs (non-expired) can get a bit grumpy if you try to skin them. Johan
  13. I have two talents: I get up really early and I work really hard. I've also found that the harder I work, the luckier I get. Johan
  14. Special Convention 2018

    It's a shame, though, that you won't be going for fear you won't understand the program. You'll get the full program at your own convention. This is solely to encourage the brothers and sisters attending and make them see the rare unity we have. Johan
  15. New Iphone Release

    I've been trying Galaxy S8 and a number of other devices and they came across as very unrefined and unfriendly to use for me. The difference is big enough. Not to mention how hard it seems to be propagate updates, even security updates, to the various devices. Johan
