Get back to work

Leading cash crop in America? Used to be corn. Now it’s pot. Between 1981 and 2006 domestic marijuana production increased tenfold. In 2005, that was twenty-two million pounds. Narco nation?

Quick. Name the highest city in the U.S. You are correct, it is Leadville, Colorado, which stands 10,152 feel tall. And you thought I was going to say Berkeley?

More questions? Why do women think musicians are sexy? Music doesn’t seem to serve any practical purpose other than getting laid. And that’s the reason musical ability survives today. Sort of like the peacock’s tail. You are wrong, jealousy has nothing to do with it.

BlogHer is an annual conference aimed at helping women earn more fame, fortune and influence on the Net. Research shows 14 of men blog and 11 percent of women. Of the 36 million who participate in the blogosphere each week, 15 million have their own blogs. Parity is spreading, slowly.

Every sport has its own lingo. But few are as quickly understood as mountain unicycling terms. Muni riders, as they are called while still living, say shindentations are the marks where rocks have punctured the fronts of their legs. Calf tracks, logically, would be the thin scars where the pedals have sliced into the back of their calves. There’s more but it gets too graphic.
