They cower in dark corners and under box corners so each time you pick up…anything…you risk being her next victim. Good luck finding those devilish little evil doers, they’re the Osama Bin Laden of the spider world.

Sneaky snakes are everywhere. In the wood pile. In the tall grass on the Golf Course. In the desert sand hiding around that prickly cactus. As we learned in the movie City Slickers II, if you accidently squat on a cactus while doing your business, you could mistake that needle prick in the tush for fangs. Good luck finding someone to suck your ass if it really is a snake.

Lightning can strike from miles away. Use this knowledge if your boss is a real dick. The next time a hellacious storm is in the Borderland invite them out for a round of Golf at a course near the storm and say, “start without me.

Well…not just any water, the water of the Rio Grande.

This is not a Mexican water joke, look at the upstream runoff. That’s a lot of surrounding land with a lot of cow poop. Plus, think about all those upstream swimmers. When’s the last time you didn’t just pee in the river after your 6th beer?
