Posted by Malou at 6/24/2008 02:35:00 PM
As I was reading the popular science magazine I found this new words on the word watch corner of the article. I love reading the popular science magazine which my husband ordered for himself but I find it really interesting and when he told me about the articles he read on it I go 'I know that story because I read it too."
He goes it is mens' magazine it's not for women, I replied "I prefer to read it because of the informations that feeds my mind and it's really interesting to learn new inventions that normal people make. Anyhow I posted here the new words from it.
