Anthropologists believe Hawaii was originally settled by people who came from the Tahiti area about 600 years ago. I can see it now. People sitting around in Tahiti thinking “this place sucks, we gotta get the hell outta here.” So they paddle six thousand miles in primitive canoes braving turbulent seas, lack of water and not enough to eat and what do they find? Same thing, palm trees, beautiful beaches, majestic mountains and breath-taking sunsets. Just what were they expecting to find anyway? Cleveland?
I think Hawaii’s pet import rules are a bit too strict. A friend of mine was put under quarantine when he stepped off the plane after it was discovered he had several pet peeves.
I was talking to a surfer who was pissed off. He said he went surfing and that the waves were coming in sets, and while he only took one wave, he was charged for the entire set.
I cut myself pretty badly while shaving and the cut became infected and puffy which puffed up and distorted my face. Shortly thereafter, I was asked to move to Molokai.
I never locked my doors while I was living in Hawaii. Not because it wasn’t unnecessary, but I was just too lazy.
I used to live not too far from what is considered the wettest spot on earth, Mt Wai’ale’ale. So I was literally sleeping in the wettest spot on earth, which makes me want to call up an old girlfriend who always complained that guys never sleep in the wet spot.
Scientists are trying to determine why whales migrate from Hawaii to Alaska. Very simple. For tax reasons. Alaska has no state income taxes. Turns out that the whales have some pretty good accounts working for them. Its also rumored that quite a few of the whales keep offshore accounts.
