This is one in a series of custom blogs I’m doing for my facebook friends. I asked if there was anything they wanted me to blog about, and I’m writing a post for each person that answered.
Danial asked for a blog about: The effects of grunion on the socio-environmental climate of Southeastern (and only southeastern) Tibet.
THINGS A GRUNION IS:
- A newspaper in Long Beach, CA
- A run, also in Long Beach
- A custom car operation in Phoenix, AZ
- An American submarine, lost off the coast of Alaska
- A bar in Manhattan Beach
- A Rugby club in Santa Barbara
- A general insult
- A tiny fish who’s mating habits are fascinating to humans as they occur on the beach at high tide during the summer, and mostly at night.
THINGS A GRUNION IS NOT:
- Native to any geographic location other than the Western coast of California in America and Baja California and Mexico
As for Tibet, it’s borders are currently in dispute, and could be a substantial distance of land Northwest of the Himalayas, or just a speck lost inside of them. So the location of Southeastern Tibet is kind of like Shrodingers cat. Nobody knows if it’s dead or alive – or more accurately, China or Other Thing.
Also, the request was in regard to the socio-environmental climate, as opposed to the more traditional concern of socio-economic. But I think that the two are at least loosely related in this instance. Since no one sells grunions, no one buys grunions. And since no one buys grunions, the likelihood of anyone getting grunions from the shores of the Pacific in North America all the way to any part of Tibet or China is highly unlikely, and possibly illegal. Therefore, as grunions have no distribution in Asia, they fail to effect the economy as a product. Consequently, they likely fail to effect society or the environment as well.
I tried to get a ‘man on the ground’ so to speak, but it didn’t work out too well.
If you would like to get in on this kind of awesomeness, be my friend on facebook and post a response next time I ask for blog ideas!
