Of the four lands . . .

One is known for its castle envy and for the horses having a better union than the humans, who work there.

The castle there is 225% taller than that other castle.

As for the horses . . .

They work shorter hours than the humans.

They can be petted by the guests. Try doing that with a human employee.

And while the human employees can get subsidized accomodations and meals, the room and board for the horses is free, and it is all they can eat.

And if it gets too hot for 'em out there, they can be hosed down. Try doing that with a human employee.

The 2nd land (110) acres is known for its TV marathons. Before one building was built, the building's designers watched all 156 episodes of Rod Serling's "Twilight Zone"--twice. How would you like a job that pays you to watch TV all day long.

The 3rd land (260 acres) is known for its red Georgia clay. One of the buildings was made out 106,000 bricks. 106,000 handmade bricks. 106,000 handmade bricks made out of red Georgia clay.

The 4th land (500 acres) is known for its pooping animals and its recycling efforts. The animals poop out 1600 tons of poop per year, some of which is recycled into fertilizer. Thus, a gross of Trevor's undies. STAT! And I do mean gross.
And the milk jugs are recycled into the park benches you see. 1350 jugs to 1 bench. So, drink your milk. They need to make another bench.

Next time: 2 waterparks and a sports complex.

What is called a "French kiss" in the English speaking world is known as an "English kiss" in France.

 The first known transfusion of blood was performed as early as 1667, when Jean-Baptiste, transfused two pints of blood from a sheep to a young man

A new one, at that. How is it "unsportsmanlike" to push your own teammate ahead of you? Apparently, it has the potential to hurt your teammate's feelings, because he wasn't moving fast enough.  Lookingup

The lights in a news studio can get so hot that the anchors are often sitting in shorts under the desk, and it's an old trick for some to keep their feet soaking in a tub of cold water, to cool them off. Seriously.

It stands for "Wireless Fidelity". You know, like "High Fidelity" from the old stereo and audiophile days.

That's what the companies want to yo know, it's actually just made up, only until after the release did the phrase Wireless fidelity make sense.

Two waterparks

One has the world's tallest fastest free-fall speed slide and the longest family whitewater raft ride in the U.S.

The other has the largest wave pool in the U.S.

And you thought they had no sense of humor

Ketchakiddee Creek (kids' playarea)
Teamboat Springs (family raft ride)
Tike's Peak (another kids' playarea)
Mount Gushmore

One sports complex

15 diamonds that can be used for baseball or softball
12 tennis courts
6 indoor basketball courts
6 sand volleyball cours
4 fields for football or that other football "soccer"
1 fieldhouse for indoor volleyball and wrestling
1 track-and-field complex
and a partridge in a pear tree

Next time: all sports all the time

Quote
Vonlenska is the non-literal language that forms the unintelligible lyrics sung by the band on some songs,[49] in particular by Jónsi. It is also commonly known by the English translation of its name, Hopelandic. It takes its name from "Von", a song on Sigur Rós’s debut album Von where it was first used. However, not all Sigur Rós songs are in Hopelandic; many are sung in Icelandic.

Vonlenska has no fixed syntax and differs from constructed languages that can be used for communication. It focuses entirely on the sounds of language; lacking grammar, meaning, and even distinct words. Instead, it consists of emotive non-lexical vocables and phonemes; in effect, Vonlenska uses the melodic and rhythmic elements of singing without the conceptual content of language. In this way, it is similar to the use of scat singing in vocal jazz. The band's website describes it as "a form of gibberish vocals that fits to the music";[50] it is similar in concept to the 'nonsense' language often used by Cocteau Twins singer Elizabeth Fraser in the 1980s and 1990s or by Icelandic singer Björk. Most of the syllable strings sung by Jónsi are repeated many times throughout each song, and in the case of ( ), throughout the whole album.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
