Elephants Are Heavier than People
It's a Fact

Some things are a matter of opinion. Is the café down the street a good place to eat? It depends, some like it. Some don’t.

Other things are just flat out true. For example, elephants are heavier than people. The weight of an elephant does not depend on your perspective. The weight of an elephant is determined by its size and by the law of gravity.

We can be confused about what is flat out true. For centuries people believed the earth was flat, and that the sun revolved around the earth.

What I Learned From a Dirty Chicken Leg

As a high school sophomore in Odessa, Texas, I landed a job as a part-time delivery boy. I was part of a teenage team of drivers for a fast-food restaurant called "Broasted Chicken." We had a small fleet of VW Bugs, and we delivered chicken dinners around town.

My first night on the job—and my very first delivery—was a minor disaster.

The chicken was packaged in flimsy white cardboard boxes, and it took practice to handle them properly. When I arrived at the customer’s address, just as I was getting five boxes out of the back seat, I dropped two of them. The chicken spilled out, and all I could do was grope around on the floor in the dark feeling for drumsticks and wings, which I put back in the boxes, hoping they would be alright.
