Yeah. The Chinese in China don't even know what fortune cookie is. It was the Japanese who brought it into the U.S., and if you go to this one city in Japan (I forgot where), you can find similar like fortune cookies, but with their own flavoring, like seaweed, etc. During the WWII when the Japanese were put into camps, the Chinese saw the opportunity and hijacked the idea and made it their own.

It's called the Y Bridge (can ya figger out why?) The story said Ripley's Believe It or Not refers to it as the only bridge in the world that you can cross and still be on the same side of the river.

Not so, you'll cross one river or another.

I have heard rumor that fortune cookies are sold as American novelty food.

The Fortune Cookie Chronicles, by Jennifer 8. Lee, is worth a read if you're interested in where fortune cookies, General Tso's Chicken, and other "Chinese" food staples came from.

Do not handle hot pepper pods for seeds, then take a leak. Without washing hands. Not all bad. First time I've felt heat down there in a long time.

Also, contact lenses.

I've learned to just always use rubber gloves.
