From a gravitational standpoint, yes, all things fall. Well, maybe not ALL things. We’re kind of sure there are some things that never fall like…liiiiiike…hey…who do you think you’re reading, Neil Degrasse Tyson? This is The Mugly Truth! You know when we say, “ALL THINGS FALL,” we mean, “IT’S AUTUMN BABY!” Mhhmm. Yes ma’am. Yesterday was officially the first day of Fall (America)/Autumn (UK). We are so happy we actually pulled our sweaters out of mothballs (even though in Southern California “Fall” still means “Summer”).
We talk about some fun facts having to do with this time of year, as well as some pumpkin trivia. And because Kris (ok, surprise….me) is still sick, this blog is gonna be short. So to get straight to the point, here are some links to all (most??) of the things we talk about in today’s episode:
