Important Science Thing I Just Learned

If, while walking the dog, you look to the west and see two bright rainbows, nested inside each other, it’s important to remember that rainbows form on the edges of storms and to realize that at 6:00 in the morning, in a place where weather come in from the west, a rainbow or two in the west, no matter who beautiful, means that you’re about to get rained on, so you’d better convince the dog to shit right now, because you don’t want to be in the car with her in the rain, because she’ll refuse to get out of the car and you’ll be stuck in a confined space with an animal letting the rancid farts of someone who needs desperately to “take care of business” but refuses to because of her fear of falling water.

(You’d think with the important resarch I do around here for the public good, there’d be a grant or two from some government agency I could get…)
