It’s Mole Day!

Yup, you heard it here (or maybe at school). Yesterday was Mole Day! I wouldn’t even had known this if my sister hadn’t been doing a project having to do with this. I guess that in math there is something known as a mole. Mole=6.022x10_23 (six point zero two two times ten to the twenty third power). In other words, it’s a way of saying the really big number: 602,200,000,000,000,000,000,000. Mole.

Anyway, since the number in scientific notation is 6.022x10_23, and yesterday was 10/23, it’s considered mole day. So now if your parents say, stop going on the internet, it kills brain cells, just start saying that you learned about scientific notation and continue on in long complicated ramblings about it. :mrgeen:

Now for the normal part: Like I said earlier, my sister had to do a project for extra credit. She had to make a creative flag for a country that could have the word mole in it. For example, you could do a flag for Poland or Portugal. You know, Moleland or Portumole. Well, the country she chose was Guatemala. Get it? Got-a-mole-a. Me and my dad tried to persuade her to draw a picture of a smiley face with a big bead and a string (hair) on it. πŸ˜› She wanted to be boring and draw a picture of the actual animal mole :role: . Then, she changed her mind because she traced the picture to small. So then, she tried to erase it. There was still a faint outline though. πŸ˜‰ And then, she blew up the picture (figure of speech peoples) and redrew it. πŸ™‚ So her final picture on the flag wasn’t that boring. She had drawn a picture of a mole…that was pregnant. πŸ˜†
