The seeds of the Populus deltoides trees that are apparently someplace around here are attached to cottonlike strands known as seed hairs. The seeds detach from their trees and beeline directly to small depressions at the edges of paved areas, in a process known as dispersal.

On the internet you can find people misspelling Populus deltoides as "populous deltoids."

The boulders are stupid-looking but they're useful for filling up space in the foregrounds of landscape pictures. It's funny to think of a person making a specific decision to bring boulders to this place, but probably they're merely a city code requirement. A bird's on one.

Keep me out of Best Buy, I'd buy up the whole store, I love electronics, I tell everybody.
