Today I was at the Park City Outlets and I was able to go in and see a BOSE demonstration. I was amazed at the technology. I now think I will never be satisfied with anything else ever again. I entered to win a system and I really hope that I win!! Now that I know what sound can be, the question is, can I ever be fully satisfied with normal movie or music sound?

It's that time again...

The time of year I decide to blog. I was talking with Annie now Weiderhold yesterday, and she made me feel guilty for never blogging, so here it is.

I wish I had adventures and stories to tell you all from the last few months of Spring Semester here in Provo, UT, but unfortunately all I have had time for is class and work. I have spent a majority of my life lately in a lab full of dead people, so, I will be telling you some of my favorite anatomy terms and also some interesting facts that I have learned!

Interesting Anatomy Facts:
  • Sunscreen does not actually help prevent skin cancer, it only prevents burning

  • When rubbing a baby's stomach, make sure to start on the right side and go left, otherwise you may cause them stomach pain

  • There are advertisements pasted all over pacemakers, which is strange since they are put inside of you and no one ever sees them

  • A heart murmer is a hole that we all have in our hearts as fetus' that doesn't quite close all the way when we take our first breath like it's supposed to

  • When your nose runs while crying, it's just tears coming out of your nose
  • When someone goes bald they're not actually losing hair, their hair is just changing from one type of hair to another
  • Never be around kitty litter when pregnant, it can cause birth defects or miscarriage
  • Being hydrated prevents: your brain falling onto the sharp parts inside of your skull, your kidneys failing, and kidney stones.
