The crazy-straw sinuses of one particular dinosaur... It would be interesting to track the increase of oral herpes in states that have legalized marijuana. Vape pen sharing is not exactly the most hygienic of things... Hot Urine would be a good name for a punk band. Playing tonight - Hot Urine!...

You can take a shortcut with a fragile foundation of memorization, or building upon the steel frame of understanding." - Naval Ravikant...
