Worth Visiting

I came to realize certain things over the years.
  1. A lie is a lie no matter what color it is.
  2. Everybody wants your money.
  3. Assholes get preferred treatment.
  4. Laundry is forever.
  5. When you're a child, you think you can do it; when you're a teenager, you know you can do it; when you're an adult, you let somebody else do it.
  6. The unvarnished and holy truth that comes from an evening of exhilirating, sweaty fornication is like coming out into the light after being lost for years in a dark forest.
  7. Petting a cat and giving a cat attention lowers your blood pressure. Cats know this and expect to be paid for it.
  8. I wish I had done all the things I have been accused of.
  9. Meetings are punishment for doing a good job and working with incompetent people.
These are facts I remember that I've learned not to bring up in conversations because no one else is interested in them.
  • In 1960, the population of Los Angeles was 2,479,015. Barstow had 10,644. Blythe had 6,023.
  • Honeypot replete ants hang upside down and are filled with honey to feed the rest of the ant colony.
  • There's no such thing as the "Santa Ana" winds. They are santannahs, meaning a hot, dry wind. The winds do not originate from Santa Ana Canyon; instead, they usually originate from the Great Basin Desert, and as they descend from the mountains, they heat up.
  • A honeybee tears over 20 muscles to sting you, and that's what kills it.
  • Yucca brevefolia is also known as a joshua tree.
  • "Death Valley Scotty" did not own Scotty's Castle.
  • "Zzyzx," pronounced "Zee-zix," was spelled in an attempt to have no vowels, to sound like sleep, and to be the last word in a dictionary. It is located along Soda Dry Lake in the Mojave Desert.
  • In 1905, an engineering mistake diverted the Colorado River into the All-American Canal and filled a depression that became the Salton Sea.
  • When a cat is happy, its tail will stick straight up like a banner.
  • An apostrophe makes a possessive, that's why I write 1960s and 1970s, not 1960's and 1970's. The 1960s and the 1970s, or any other decade, don't possess anything.
