One day a boy comes home from school and says, "Dad I need to know the meaning of hypothetically and realistically for school."
The father replies, "Go ask your mother if she would sleep with a man for 1 million dollars."
The little boy goes and asks and, sure enough, she says yes.
His dad says, "Okay, now go ask your sister if she would sleep with a man for a million dollars." He does and, sure enough, she says yes.
So the father says, you see son hypothetically we are sitting on 2 million dollars but realistically we are living with a couple of whores."

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World
begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.
My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.
As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.

the world... nutty.
