-Prettysenshi does not like heights, and is fun to tease about it

-Cookout rpgs are doomed to shortness.

-Aeridus' hair is possessed.

-Snugglepiles are not as fun in real life as they are in chat.

-I am not a good chair, because I fidget when I start to lose feeling in my legs.

-Danish candy is friggin' scary.

-In "rubber duck vs Legostar's crotch", rubber duck always wins.

-The St Louis Best Western Airport Hotel's doors are only effective against zombies with keycards if the doors actually shut. If you get a room that doesn't shut completely, you're doomed.

Prettysenshi is also mortally afraid of bugs.

Redwolf's 12' long tail is disturbingly soft and comfy.

K-Dawg only owns one sports jersey, and wore it to both cookouts.

Vorticus is not as fun to tickle as T-dot is to tweak.

T-dot is addictively tweaky. It's like having a toy ball that screams.

Maria and Michelle are, hands down, the cutest couple on the planet Earth.

Cortland is a better kisser than Vorticus.

Poker and Roleplaying become more difficult to do, the bigger the cookout.

• The removal of facial hair renders you totally unrecognizable.
• When in doubt, do a barrel role.
• You cannot kill a Rancor by shooting it. You just can't. Get used to it.
• K-Dawg is afraid of the Rape Frog, and for good reason.
• All picto-chat is good for is drawing penises

-In Linkara vs. Everyone, Linkara gets beaten up.
-People cannot agree on whether or not pizza should be organized by vegetarian and meat or if it should just be chaos.
-"Do a barrel roll!" is universally funny for any video game.
-Despite noble efforts, finding a tutorial on how to draw anthropomorphic fox faces is more difficult than it looks.
-I learned I can slap myself pretty hard when I realized after I left that I forgot to have Ryan taser me.

Indeed, you do, Aaron. Though I can see the similarity in our faces somewhat.

Army men are still fun, even after all these years.

The fun is in making fun of them, but still.

I learned that next year, we need nametags. Yay for being half deaf with poor short term memory! XD

I also learned that bleaching my hair turns me Super Saiyan. :D

Final lesson: All the girls on ComicGenesis are super cute. Even some of the guys. Hugs rule all. :D

I learned that the drug-sniffing dog at the part of the Canadian border where ahaugen works is a chocolate lab. :D

I learned lots of stuff!

Outside the Cookout: (airports)
- I always sit beside Japanese buisnessmen. I was on four planes. This CAN'T be coincidence.
- Elderly couples are always willing to explain to Canadians why the Chicago intercom has just said the airport was level Orange.
- Starbucks makes bad coffee, but excellent baked goods.
- American road signs use fractions. I still don't understand why they bother to write "Place Name - 1/4".
- My pants set of metal detectors. In the shins.
- If you dance in your boxers for the people at the airport while security is baffled by your pants, it relaxes everyone there. That or Americans find a Canadian doing a jig in boxers in Airport security amusing.
- I don't care what anyone says...American money looks like play money, and it's no wonder its duplicated a lot...theres no shiney stickers on it, or layered funny images...IT'S PLAY MONEY, I SWEAR IT!!

At the Cookout:
- All American food is Greasy. Even the Vegetables.
- 95% of Danish candy is likely carved from Plutonium.
- They apparently make green Legos now. They didn't when I was small.
- America has flavoured cream for coffee.
- People are willing to let me explore things, but they won't sleep in the same room as me afterward. Except the Norths. But they're whacky enough as it is.
- Ryuko had some kind of Japanese learning game for her Japanese Phoenix Wright game. It's neat to see games can teach too.
- American Mountain Dew tastes very different, and they have Red Mountain Dew...furthermore, their vending machines take dollar bills, y'all.
- Sincerely's knees are made of pure, unforgiving Justice.
- Uranium looks shocking enough, like a rock. Now I worry about the rocks in my backyard.
- It was hotter there in June than it typically gets here in August. It was comforting to know I could adapt.
- Laemkral and Ahaugen are the same. DO NOT DENY THIS.
- Some artists waste their lives and talent. Refer to the crazy old man who spent 19 years animating that obscure porno movie.
- Luke was supposed to be a midget, and George Lucas is most definitely Santa Claus.
- American stores sell the secret to my power. I was pleased.

- There's nothing friendlier than a wet Legostar.
- Vort is hella smooth on the dance floor, and is capable of wearing normal clothing.
- Having purple hair immediately qualifies you as a hair dying expert, and drafts you for all spur-of-the-moment hair-dying adventures.
- Beth Kolter should be re-dubbed "Hot Lips" Kolter.

I learned...

- That the Americans have NO taste in candy! 8-)
- That really many people are afraid of water...
- That even Ryan can be broken... (Thanks for proving this Aggie! )
- That you shall beware thrown swords!
- That Vorticus actually has hair beneath the hats...

And last but not least

- That the cookout was well worth the 20 hours of travel each way

-Oh god yes. Such terrible drinks. Never tried the bake goods.
-Because we think of miles in terms of fractions, since miles don't exactly work on a 1-10 scale like the metric system does. It's all sort of ingrained.
-You should see the new dollar bills with the giant heads of doom and slight color tint. They're even worse.
-Most things from fast food joints, catering, delivery, and restaurants are. Er...this is a lot, yeah. But individual households are another matter entirely and varies widely. The commercial world hasn't entirely caught up.
-Truth. I remember seeing it in a lot of the better candy stores, but I still prefer the cherry delicious red stuff to real licorice, much less salted licorice.
-we also have a wide variety of flavored coffees.
-We also have black/purple Mountain Dew.
