Good thing! Chimps with "outties" tend to get picked on and ostracized by their bandmates.

I don't think an Outie is any different from, say, a Honda or a Ford.

My outies wheels fell off
and I can't swim
and my baby's on the other side

When I awoke this a mornin' the rain was a pouring down
I was gonna wed the little river girl
just over the bridge across town

Now I'm a runnin' up and down the river
and my nerves are driving me wild
Cause my outies wheels fell off
and, I can't swim
and my baby's on the other side

Oh rain oh rain stop fallin'
dark clouds hurry from the sky
The preacher and my bride are waitin'
and the weddin' bells are startin' to chime

I can't kiss and hold her
and it's drivin' me out of my mind
Cause my outies wheels fell off
and I can't swim
and my baby's on the other side

Yeah I got one foot in the river
one foot solid on the ground
I try to swim that ragin' ol' river
but I know if I try I'd drown

There's not a boat around me
they walked on out with the tide
Cause my outies wheels fell off
and I can't swim
and my baby's on the other side

Yeah rain oh rain stop fallin'..
Cause my outies wheels fell off
and I can't swim
and my baby's on the other side

You've got it all wrong, Ed!

Canadians say "out".

Scots say "oot".

Americans say "aaaowwwwwwwwyyyyt" (make it really nasal like a halfwit Ozark hillbilly and you get the full effect.)

The Canadians and the English are, in fact, the only English-speaking people who pronounce "out" the way it should be pronounced. ;-)

Go on, admit it - you've always wanted to haven't you? Perhaps not, but what if I told you that it's not just apes but those perennial favourites of enlightened humanity, monkeys, who have developed this enlightened way of devouring the humble banana? Yes, it's time we humans took that final step in our evolution - ironically by imitating our simian siblings! So, you ask, how exactly do I eat a banana like a chimp?

Chances are, if you pick up a banana with intent to eat it, you'll peel it by grabbing the stalk and ripping it downwards, then peeling down the other flappy bits. If that is your intention, stop now! Take a leaf (no pun intended) from the chimp's book. Basically, chimps eat bananas sideways, by bending the banana slightly (usually in the direction of its natural bend) until the skin splits, revealing the precious yellow inner. The fruit is then easily retrievable from its case, thus facilitating its transfer into one's mouth.

Why? WHY??

This is all well and good, but why bother? Well, let me ask you, why do you bother peeling bananas the way you do? As usual, it is all pure social conditioning! The way you peel bananas now is more work than the beautifully simple chimp method. Face it - chimps spend their lives surrounded by bananas, swinging joyously from banana tree to banana tree and eating bananas. They are banana experts! They know how bananas tick. Splitting the banana sideways in one swift action is not only much easier than peeling all the flaps from the top, but is also scientifically proven to greatly reduce the number of stringy bits you have to get off afterwards. Rigorous scientific testing has also proven this method to make the banana actually taste better!

As well as saving you precious life energy and producing a more pleasant eating experience, eating a banana like a chimp is less embarrassing than the usual, slightly phallic method. Plus, if you practise regularly, you get to eat loads of bananas! Bananas are good for you.

In early 2001, New Mexico's law making cohabitation illegal was repealed. The bill passed the Senate by a 26-5 vote, went through the House, and was finally signed by Governor Gary Johnson. The action followed charges against a couple living together in Los Lunas by the ex-wife of the man. The case drew national attention and was eventually dismissed in April 2000.

The law, enacted in 1963, made it theoretically illegal for couples to live together if they were not married. It had not been used for decades, however. The issue was last raised in 1987 and 1988 when a sheriff of Catron County and subesequently a reverend of Rio Rancho asked for it to be enforced. Their suggestions faded as they were told this was impossible.

The five senators who voted against the bill said they were doing so to strenghten families and marriage. They wanted the cohabitation law to be stricter, if anything.

Other states with such laws are Arizona, Idaho, Florida, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, Virginia, and West Virginia.

That's an interesting point you make about banana eating, Ed. I think the chimps probably have it figured right while we humans are, as you suggested, victims of social conditioning.

However, take note of this: Chimps are NOT monkeys! They are apes. Apes are not monkeys.

Chongo expects you to correct this misuse of language, and if you don't he will have you publicly censured for uttering specist statements on the Net. Be aware of that.

The only way I eat bananas is sliced, on cornflakes or rice crispies. For the potassium. And never more than 1/2 of the banana. Being a generous soul who values all sentient beings, I leave the rest for the fruitflies.

But then, I am not a monkey or a chimp. I am a child of MOAB.

Chimps nightime story

Hoover Dam (original name was Boulder Dam) took 5 years to build. It is one of the largest dams in the world at 726 ft. (221 m) high and 1,244 ft. (379 m) long. There are 4,360,000 cubic yards of concrete in the dam, powerplant, and appurtenant works, about 5 million barrels of cement. The hydroelectric capacity of Hoover Dam is 1,345 Mw.

When the dam was built, there were theories that the enormous concentration of concrete in one spot would throw the earth off its axis. If this happened, some of the smaller countries were planning to sue for reparations in the World Court.
About 20 years ago, the administrator of the dam decided he didn't like the bats that lived there, so he had them exterminated. Needless to say, it is now plagued by insects. Attempts are being made to bring the bats back.
Although Las Vegas is only a 45 minute drive away from the dam (and half the time is spent on slow roads), it only gets about 2% of the dam's power output. This is because, when the dam was built and power was being assigned, the city only had a population of 6,000, and the mayor saw no reason for the population to increase by any significant amount.
The dam was originally expected to have a service life of 1,500 years. Now that other dams upstream of the Hoover Dam keep silt from accumulating under the dam, the expected lifetime has doubled to 3,000 years.
Watching specials on The History Channel, you will hear that about 100 people died during work on the dam. The number is actually over 400, but because the government listed Carbon Monoxide poisoning and Black Lung as unrelated diseases, most of these deaths were not listed as occupation-related.
At the top of the Dam, there is a star map that gives the appearance of the sky at the time that the dam was completed, as well as a description of the earth's axial wobble, so that archaeologists of the distant future might be able to fix the time that the dam was built.
The Hoover Dam is the only US Federal Public Works project of its size that has (directly) paid for itself.

I worked at Hoover Dam for a brief time. Really strange job. Why they would hire a highly trained interpretive naturalist, someone who is expert in extemporaneous speaking about the natural or historic place at hand, and insist that she memorize a script and tell her not to worry about it when she asks for information about how the guts of the hydro plant actually works so she'll know what she's talking about, well, the time I spent there was shorter than this sentence.

The ratio of, or difference between, your arm-span and your height is your Ape index. If you have an arm span less than your height, you have a negative ape index. If they are similar, you are normal. If you have a wider arm span than you are tall, you have a positive ape index.

And the crowd began to forming

Another tie! Another spike!! Come and bring that hammer down!
And another steel nail found its home
In the cold and wintery ground.
Press on! Press on!! It's coming soon!
The village wives did pray.
As the gang worked down the final slope
To the thirty-two of Kay.

Then from over the mountains, back in the hills
There floated a strange new sound.
A lonesome drifting kind of song,
Like a timberwolf's sad moan.
It floated down from those distant hills
Where we'd spent those sweat-stained days,
And it cried as a ghost might moan, "Make haste!"
"Make the thirty-two of Kay!"\

The citizens watching down below
All froze with a look of fear.
They wondered at that weird cry,
And the children cried in fear.
And the men and women at the rail
Just doubled their speed once more.
For they knew the sound of the MOAB Train
Crossing thirty one five oh four.

They knew the hour was drawing near
When their work would win, or die
And they knew they had to finish that line
Where that mighty train would fly.
For she would not stop, she could not stop
Once she started the long, long grade
That led down from those towering mountain heights
To the Thirty Two of Kay.

Then the last rail settled into its bed.
The bumpers stood like soldiers.
The last sharp spike was hammered in,
ANd the crew boss yelled, "Now, hold her!"
Then out of the mist and down the grade
Came a blur like the break of day
As the MOAB engine and ninety cars
Rattled home to 32 Kay.
