I've been drinking too much IPA recently. I should switch to a stout or porter to balance things out.

In the case anyone has hemorrhoids, learn how to take crap correctly. You just can't push it out that hard. Let it out and breathe for gods sake...breathe. If it just can't got out...wait for the next turn.

you just can't force things you know?

Good point. Remember: it's not about pushing... more like letting go...

Warm air turns the water from rivers, lakes, oceans, toilets, elephant piss, DuPont waste lakes, or spitting cobras into water vapor that rises into the air. That water vapor forms clouds, which contain small drops of water or ice crystals (depending on how high the cloud is and how cold it is, or the shape of the cloud). Those clouds may or may not be directly above you.

As clouds rise higher, higher, higher and higher, the air gets colder, colder, colder, and colder. When the water vapor in the cloud becomes too heavy, it falls back to the ground, lake, ocean, river, or your nearby subway sandwich shop as rain, snow, humidity, or the balls of ice because of the gravity. Hurricane debris is distantly related to this process.

Rain Experiment

Ask your mom, dad, teacher, friend, spouse, neighbor, cop, or a fireman to help you with this experiment. (Do not try it by yourself!)

  1. Boil water until steam rises. (use regular fire or the appliance commonly found in households which operates electrically or with flammable gas)
  2. Hold a tray of ice about 5 inches or 12.7 centimeters above the hot, torrid, and blistering steam. Use potholders, flame resistant coveralls, or flame retardant uniforms to protect your hands from the hot, sizzling, and baking steam.
  3. Continue holding the tray until drops form on the bottom, get heavy and fall just like rain! (to be creative, add purple color paint to the water before freezing it in the ice trey. You will get purple rain as a result. Yep.)
