  1. I live in a small, Northern BC town that used to be a fur trading post. We now have a National Historic site here run by interpreters. Everyday, they have a hunting skills program, where they teach you how to use an atlatl. It’s pretty fun and not too hard to use, but it takes practice. I’m not sure it would have been all that practical to use for hunting in our dense forest. You need room to load that thing!

  2. I am Governor Jerry Brown
    My aura smiles and never frowns
    Soon I will be president…

    I will command all of you
    Your kids will meditate in school!
