You can tell when countries don’t like each other when they rename the streets outside of each others embassies. The host country will name the street after a political dissident in the country of the embassy. Which is not just annoying to the embassy staff, but their neighbors, too. The embassy …

Many years ago, herds of wild trains thundered across the rails. Hunted for spare parts. Hunted for breeding-stock to make the model trains for enthusiasts’ basements. Hunted for sport. And the modern freight trains fill the rail schedules. So few trains out in the wild anymore. Sometimes, you hear …

The origin of the name Lazy Susan has been lost to history, but we can offer an educated guess that it may come from a hostess too lazy to pass the salt, pepper, and other condiments to her dinner guests. Some say that the Susan is, in fact, Susan Sarandon, who as a struggling actress worked as a …

Back in high school, rumor had it that Jenny and Fred would go under the bleachers and bump uglies. But rumors are rumors, and I knew this was total bunk. I’d eaten out Jenny a few times, and she had the prettiest pussy I’d ever seen. I’d blown Fred a few times, too, and his penis was a beautiful …

McDonalds used to only serve breakfast until five minutes before you got there. Now, they serve breakfast all day long. But not the entire menu. Most locations don’t have enough grill space for it all. So, one restaurant serves pancakes. The other makes hash browns. The one that does Egg McMuffins …

Never get an apartment near the parking lot. You’ll hear car alarms go off all night. Never get an apartment near the dumpsters. You’ll hear the clang of people throwing out garbage. Never get an apartment near the laundry room. You’ll hear people kick the machines and yell. Never get an apartment …

The Eighty-Five Chicago Bears. Greatest team ever. Heroes forever. But bodies, broken by battle, don’t last. Their commanders fall to dust. One day. Mike Ditka will die. And when he gets to Heaven. To face his maker. God will stuff him into a football. And hand him to Walter Payton. Who will run …

The cubit is the distance from the bottom of the elbow to the tip of the middle finger. This was an ancient Egyptian unit of measurement, along with the finger, foot, fist, and spam. But surveyors had different body measurements, so measurement was a somewhat inaccurate science. Standardization …

It’s fun to jump on the bed. Like a trampoline. That’s why we do it. It’s not fun to jump on the chair. Chairs break and fall apart. That’s why we don’t do it. It’s not fun to jump on people, either. They tend to scream and bleed and get really messy. But they break in to our homes. And jump on our …

When I was a kid, if you needed to get your teeth straightened, you had to get braces mounted on your teeth. Rubber hands and a headgear assembly controlled the tension, and every month you’d go in for tightening and adjustment. Now, you can get your teeth scanned, and they’ll 3-D print a series of …

What good is a bodyguard When you’re staring at a body on the floor? She smoked, she drank. She fucked around. She took pills, she shot herself up with all kind of shit. Tattoos to cover up the worst of the needle tracks. The scars. The bruises. Cameras everywhere, sucking it all in. The famous …

I wake to the smell of hot buttermilk biscuits. I open my eyes and see black silk. A blindfold. “Open your mouth,” you say. A piece of warm biscuit on my lips, my tongue. I chew slowly, tasting it. Dribbles of butter on my lips, my chin. I lick them off. Your finger, dipped in jelly. Grape jelly, …

Scientists at NASA wanted to send bees up in a rocket to the space station. They wanted to see how bees would react to zero-gravity conditions. Would their honeycombs change their geometry from series of hexagons to some weird, alien topography? Would their social structure change, where the drones …

Scientists talk about the gene pool. But they don’t talk about the lifeguard at the gene pool. Or how much it costs to hire a gene pool cleaning service. They come out and skim the dead leaves from the gene pool, and maintain the chemicals so that the water is clean and doesn’t burn your eyes when …
