    Here, they don't. Unless they have the money to get it blasted out.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    That sucks. That may hinder my plan to not get killed in the event of a tornado.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    The Basin rarely gets hit with tornadoes. We're well outside Tornado Alley. Besides, tornadoes require clouds and storms, stuff that tends to go north or south of us because of the meteorologic pattern caused by being in a basin on top of the caprock.

    To "testify" was based on men in the Roman court swearing to a statement made by swearing on their testicles.


    Hmm...I shall research this to ensure its authenticity.

    It seems to be more myth than anything. I think it's coming from the fact that only adult men were allowed to make a statement in court, only grow men have testicles, which they may or may not have been required to show. Guy 1: "Can he make a statement" Guy 2: "Yup, he's shown me the boys, he's been testified"

    There is an etymological link between testicles and testimony/testament, but there is no reference to the notion of cupping jewels when speaking truth. If the online source's surmise is correct, Booter may actually be closer to the truth.

    All males have a jewel bag, but the testicular glands themselves "drop" during puberty, yo.

    Yeah, was going to note that, but have a funny story to tell.

    I started to lose my hair very early on ("grass doesn't grow on a busy street" - my bald grandfather... one of 'em). This girl I was dating before Mrs. FW (obv.) was a night person. I'd been lamenting the final stage of hair loss as I was then about to finally buzz it all the fuck off (great decision, BTW), and she mentioned that maybe I could set my unconscious mind to work and re-grow my hair. All sorts of fanciful notions, that one had. Said people used such methods to stop smoking, lose weight, whatever. So I'm drifting off to sleep with that in mind and she's reading a music mag, and she cracks up laughing.

    "What's so funny," I mumble.

    "Oh, I was just reading this article about this blues musician, and I looked at the picture of him. Look at the guy's package... he has balls the size of onions! Why is it that old guys' balls get bigger?" So she's laughing to herself about the guy's enormous balls, and instead of going to sleep thinking about hair re-growing, I go to sleep thinking about... bigger balls.

    Not sayin' it worked.

    Not sayin' it didn't.
