Not wise: Piling onto a bus with forty other geology students and driving into the belly of the Hurricane Fault just to get a whiff of the sulfur. I don't know about you guys, but given the recent headlines coming at us from Chile, Haiti, China, etc., I don't know if hanging out on fault lines is a wise course of action. (I didn't take pictures because I didn't want to give other students the impression that I was enjoying myself. You're just going to have to be satisfied with this gem from the World Wide Web, which looks nothing like the portion of the fault that we beheld.) Behold, the Hurricane Fault:
Sometimes children need to be punished and the usual beatings just don't cut it. Wisdom: Strap them into harnesses, attach them to bungee cords, and let 'er rip.

And if they still give you attitude, let Tess handle them.

Now, for your reading enjoyment, I present:

Wisdom Overheard at the Ironwood Swimming Pool

Macey: "Olivia! Don't hit the water with your eyes open or you'll go blind!"

...brought to you by this classic of American cinema:

Other notable Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken Wisdom:

Run away and join a travelling horse diving act. Your boss's son will be a hottie.

If you wrap your feet around the legs of your chair in an act of defiance, you can get pretty much whatever you want.

If a horse has colic you have to get wuter and oil into him.

It's okay if a guy says that word water "wuter," so long as he is handsome.
