Thinker...

Today, we got a piece of spam mailed to us from the Institute for Brain Potential in "Los Banos, CA."

"Hmmmm," I thought. "I know that 'baños' is Spanish for 'toilet.' I really hope it's a different translation without the tilde."

So I Googled "Los Banos, CA" and the details box on the SERP (Search Engine Result Page) in the right column showed the beginning of a Wikipedia entry on the town, which read, "Los Banos, alternatively Los Baños, is a city in Merced County, central California."

Ohmigod, they named a town in California "The Toilets" (alternatively, "The Shitters"). Seriously?

And we received a promo from the Institute for Brain Potential... in The Toilets, California... furthering the theory that humans do their best thinking on the toilet.

I'll see myself out.
