Headless Chickens

>> May 30, 2007

Today I was wondering:

"Do chickens actually run around after their heads are chopped off?"
Well... I looked it up on YouTube.

And yes... they do.
And it's really funny, but kind of nasty!

My brother saw it in real life and he fainted.

Here is a link to the video. (note: not for the squeamish)


Gory, huh.

This comment on the video gives an explanation for this phenomenon... Although, I don't know how accurate it is. (it could be either wrong or right)
"As far as i know, the chicken as a whole complete organism is officially dead as soon as the spinal cord in the neck is severed. which would mean that any movement afterwards would just be reflexes/muscle spasms. but technically all the organs and tissue and muscle in the corpse is still alive they just aren't working together as a unit without the commanding presence of the brain."

The sun is not shining.

It hasn't really shone since before the swimming pool opened, and it still isn't shining! I want the clouds to go away. I want it to be warm so I can be cooled in the pool instead of getting frozen.

But I can't control the weather.

This is my initiation.

I really don't know what to write about. I have had several blogs. All failures!

I suppose I had better start with an about me.

I am the oldest of five. I live with my parents and siblings in a medium-sized house in the United States. My mom and dad are the best! I don't know how they put up with us. I am just about to enter high school, but I have never been in a school classroom, because I'm homeschooled. I have great friends from my various homeschool co-ops. I'm a Christian and proud of it!

This summer I'm in a play at a real theater! The play is, "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown!" Another thing I am excited about this summer is my church's mission trip to the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. Still another highlight of my summer will be Pine Cove! I get to go to Shores finally!

This summer will be very busy.
