Re: Oh Florida...

Some young cowboys in Prescott Arizona decided to save money on a motel room by renting spaces in the parking garage right behind Whiskey Row. Cops woke 'em up to charge them with DUI, charges stuck because they had access to their keys. As a friend of mine puts it, a person can get a DUI in Arizon...

Re: Massive brawn to go with our massive brains

Today's run was 80+ degrees, 70% humidity, and 70+ dew point (at 6:30 am, no less). I don't know if I've ever been sweatier. I definitely didn't get any wetter by jumping in the pool afterward. Wait, I thought you were in the desert in AZ? Those numbers seem off. For Arizona, I mean. Your humidity ...

Re: You Learn Something New Every Day

John Quincy Adams served in the US House for 15 years after being President. The only other ex-president to get similarly elected (although Senate, not House) was Andrew Johnson, but he only served for 6 months before dying.

Have you tried Honey Stinger stuff? The waffles are pretty good.
I have, and I agree. I like them on day hikes, but they tend to get smashed into tiny pieces on longer trips.

Guys. What if Trump fixes Obamacare by calling Congress "a bunch of doughy retards who wouldn't last ten minutes in the shoes of an average American worker."

What then?

I've never had a moon pie. I should try one on my next hike. Maybe one of those to substitute for one of the 1-3 snickers I eat daily while hiking.

Give it a couple years until it's more mainstream, then the two of you should take a guided psychedelic experience. One and done, professional guidance, no stigma about 'being a user', no hangover.
There's a peyote church in Arizona that does this. Pretty tempted to try it out.

Shoko Asahara and some followers, hanged-by-the-neck-until-dead for their involvement in the 1995 nerve agent attack in the Tokyo subway.

This is very strange to me; I was in college when that happened.
I was mostly surprised that Japan has executions, and that they're by hanging.

Re: Music for the Masses

Redneck Shit by Walker Wheeler Jr is amusing. It's basically taking "Piss Up a Rope" from Ween's 12 Golden Country Greats and making an album out of it. "Fuck You Bitch" is definitely the highlight. Pitch-perfect parody.

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

Only broke 110 once in June. That's not bad by Phoenix standards (especially since that's the airport reading and that's the hottest place in the valley). Supposed to be 115 today, though.

Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis. I'd say it lives up to the hype, although some of it is excruciatingly awkward humor. As a commentary on campus politics and higher education in general, I think some around here might enjoy it.
