He's lonely. He's Virgil. He's Lonely Virgil. It's why the internet was created.
Here's 130. This is Tendown 131.
1. The Thing I Learned This Week That I Did Not Know Before This Week
Ricotta? Not a cheese.
2. The Thing I Would Have Guessed Before This Week That Now I Know.
It's really hot.
Four major heat records fell in a stunning new climate report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on Thursday. The lower 48 states set temperature records for the warmest spring, largest seasonal departure from average, warmest year-to-date, and warmest 12-month period, all new marks since records began in 1895. While the globe has been tracking slightly cooler than recent years — thanks in part to the influence of now dissipated La Nina conditions in the tropical Pacific — the U.S. has been sizzling.

Well, you can.
5. The Book I Read on My Phone.
It's taken me all of a month with my new phone to have been relieved of my "books must be on paper" paradigm. I've changed teams. My apologies.
I also watched 3 four star matches this week:
May ROH Richards v. Steen 4 1/4
May DDT Ibushi v. Generico 4 1/4
June ROH Richards v. Edwards 4(the best TV match of the year)
June Chikara Young Bucks v. Taylor/Gargano 4
No more body switching movies. Even the not terrible ones are terrible.
Also, don't say "bucket list." You don't really have one.

10. In Case I'm Not Around For a Few Weeks...
Next Sunday I go to Phoenix for a two week training for the new gig. Just a couple of weeks later I go to Utah for a week for a seminar. So, if I'm largely dark for a month - y'all get some rest.
That's all for this time. I'll be back next time...if there is a next time....
