Rooftop Drinking

Drinking and people watching go together. That’s why rooftop drinking is so popular. Drinking makes you feel big and powerful, and so does watching people from high above. They go hand in hand. It’s fun watching the pedestrians below as they scurry around like ants for your amusement while you sip your nectar and feel like a god. It’s better than drinking on a balcony because you are higher up and have a better view. It’s more exciting, it’s more exhilarating, it’s all about the rooftop. You feel the wind, you see the lights, watch the cars, and take in the sights. Just don’t get too rowdy because gravity still applies. People have been known to fall off roofs and splattering to the pavement can put a damper on the evening. It sucks, but it happens. Be respectful of the edge and you should be all right.

Walking Downhill

I live in San Francisco and don’t have a car. That means that I walk. A lot. San Francisco is famous for its many hills and I spend a lot of time walking up and down those hills. Walking uphill sucks. It’s tiring and it’s an involuntary workout. The only good thing about walking uphill is that you’ll eventually reach the peak and start walking downhill. Walking downhill is where it’s at. All you have to do is keep your legs moving and let gravity do all the work. You put some stress on your knees, but that’s a small sacrifice for flying down the hill at a pace that a professional speed walker would be proud of. You can cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time without wasting much energy. Your downhill pace should be called Lipton Speed because it’s so brisk.

Getting Every Last Drop From the Bottle

Things cost money and it’s important to get your money’s worth. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bottle of beer, ketchup, shampoo, syrup or whatever… if you paid for it, you should use it all up. Turn the bottle upside down, smack the bottom, do whatever it takes to get every last drop. Some companies want you to do this. These days Heinz even has upside down ketchup bottles with built-in gravity for maximum condiment efficiency. Getting every last drop from the bottle might make you seem frugal, but it’s better to be cheap than wasteful.

Gravity Hill

A gravity hill is a place where physics gives up and lets the ghosts fuck shit up. A car will in neutral will roll uphill, defying gravity and the basic laws of nature. Some people will tell you that it’s merely an optical illusion and that you’re on a slight downward slope even though it looks like you’re going uphill. Those people don’t know how to have fun. It’s more interesting to pretend like there is some supernatural or paranormal phenomenon at work. Even if you know that it’s just science, it’s still fun when common sense lies to you and things aren’t what they seem. Every town has a haunted house, but only a few places are lucky enough to have a gravity hill. Use the Google to search for ones in your area and check it out with a few friends (works best while stoned). Approach it with an open mind and have fun.
