    Here'a misconception: I am NOT Mexican! I'm ITALIAN!!!

    I cannot tell you how many times a day I have people come up to me who ask me questions in Spanish & I'm like "No habla Espanol" Actually, I am 1/4 Spanish; my dad's dad is from Spain, but the other 3/4 of me are Italiano! Capiche?

    It never rains in Wyoming in the summer.

    My father had us all believing that one until the rains came and the tent blew down.

    There's another one. Does anyone know why they do what they do? Is it some sort of sick animal "Simon Says" game they get them to follow after they munch on some funny mushroom?

    I didn't know the answer to this, so I looked it up. Here's what I found:

    Thanks, ajg113. I'm glad to know they don't need mental health care. They just made a wrong turn to migrate.

    Eskimos do not have multiple words for snow.

    There are two root terms for snow, as given in Schultz-Lorentzen's Dictionary of the West Greenlandic Eskimo Language (1927). Qanik means "snow in the air" and aput means "snow on the ground."

    QuinntheEskimo...I feel your pain. BORElando is quite possibly the worse place I've ever lived. I made one really close friend and will probably be able to handle a visit now and again. By and large, I reallllllllllllllllllly disliked the humidity, the flatness, and Mickey.

    Come on out to Colorado--we'll take you!
