As a child, Beethoven made such a poor impression on his music teachers that he was pronounced hopeless as a composer. Even Haydn, who taught him harmony, did not recognize Beethoven’s potential genius.
Stephen Stills, who went on to join Crosby, Stills, and Nash, originally tried out to be a Monkee. He didn’t get the part. Producers felt that he was losing too much hair and that his teeth were too bad.
Oh look, one more beer in the fridge. If I drink it now I won’t need beer tomorrrow because I won’t have that one to get me going. Oooorrrrrrrrrr I can have it now and go to the store for another sixer and have JUST ONE MORE then have five to start this shit all over again. Or four tomorrow. Probably two. Maybe none.
The highest spot on earth is not Mt. Everest. If we define the “highest spot” as that which is closest to the moon, stars, etc., then Mt. Chimborazo in Ecuador is an incredible 1.5 miles higher due to the oblate spheroid shape of the earth.
Even if the 4/20 meetup doesn't happen, can we still visit? We're getting our enhanced IDs so we can travel to the Canadia! Promise me I'll at least get a boob honk!
Vansterdam 4/20 is going to happen. I’ve lined up a hotel with a nice view of downtown that is only three blocks from my place, mongrelmess/@theblessmess is setting up the twtvite, and all that’s left is finalizing a venue. That will be done once I have an idea of how many attendees there will be.
But please feel free to come up and visit any time!
