  • That's a bit like saying Red Rooster is a nature-made outcrop of stultifying glugburbia where wildfowl summarily disrobe and commit chicka-kiri, throw themselves into conveniently-placed geysers of hot oil, mysteriously jump out again, roll in the local salt-lick and hurl themselves into foil bags that tumble into the hubba-hubba greasewagons of slavering bogans at the drive-thru. This wondrous cycle repeats 24/7, despite the naturally fugly blue and red plastic sign being currently short of internal glow-worms during the nocturnal hours.

  • I think Quarries are some sort of nature-made ditch where a lot of rocks are taken from for building materials and such? I don't really know how this relates to Outliers though, unless my definition is totally off, which is very likely.
