2. What a fucking week for news! The past 10 years have blown the shit out of a few "myths" our dumbass teachers taught us; magic, ghosts, energy creation, legalized pot in California, life on Mars, the Loch Ness Monster, and there's more (look at me brilliantly staying away from "perpetual motion"). Today, Thursday this week, we turn our attention to Indonesia, where scientists have unearthed a new species of tiny humans who lived as recently as 12,000 years ago. A whole race of little people, 3 feet tall and 55 lbs., they were eventually wiped out by a big volcano--that's also very cool. There is the possibility that these "hobbits" mixed with humans, too. I wonder what the present-day faeries in England think about all of this; maybe they'll be coming out soon. Naaa.
3. I don't have a 3. It was a good week with just the 2. Sorry; no 3. Hang on; maybe I can stretch one out here. The California docks gridlock: It used to take 3 or 4 days to unload a big cargo ship at the docks, now it takes 2 weeks. There aren't enough workers, and the machinery to unload them is scarce and old. Rather than hire more workers or get more equipment, they all just complain about how it's not getting done. Brilliant. Mega-retailers are going to be pretty pissed when they don't get their big pre-Christmas orders until February. Ha. I can't wait. Hey; what about 2 and a half? Shit.
2 and a half: From the creatively named land of water shortages and green golf courses, we have this; in Scottsdale, there is a dog obedience school named "Sit Happens". I want a t-shirt.
