Some things I've learned recently:
- Some mugs and cups are righthanded. They have the biggest and best design where it would be facing toward you if you drink righthanded, and only a smaller piece of the design (or none at all) on the backside--the side that faces toward you if you drink lefthanded. Since I'm lefthanded, you'd think I'd have noticed this a long time ago, wouldn't you?
- If you flush a kleenex with self-tanner on it down the toilet, the water in the toilet will be orangey brown for at least 15 flushes.
This August you'll be able to see something that no human being has seen in recorded history. I must thank Tim of The Irvins for bringing this to my attention. Bene D points out in the comments that this story is a hoax that's been circulating in email for a long time. So I learned less than I thought!
- Wasp larvae look just like the photo above. And they pulsate.
- July in the Yukon is a good time for painting, gardening, hiking, destroying wasps nests, reading and refrigerator poetry, but not a good time for serious blogging.
