😱 how can you not like ham...I like Enea and I like ham....picture perfect for me hahaha

I guess it’s more a European thing? We don’t eat ham like that in Ireland lol. It always weirds me out when I go on holiday and they have giant ham. You could kill someone with that ham!


We didn’t do too much research into this place, except that is was apparently the highest campsite in the Sierra Nevada. Arrived seriously carsick from the windy road, but we cheered up the next day when we ventured into town to discover it was a jamón (ham) town! It’s so dry it provides perfect jamón curing conditions, and god damn it’s some good jamón - Trevélez, Spain

Outside-of-the-Box Authority (5/13)

I have a few strange “tidbits” of things I know about outside of the stiff-collar academia universe:

  • Can identify movie scores of movies seen within the first few seconds.
  • Male Angler Fish fuse themselves in the skin of the female Angler Fish for mating purposes.
  • Cherokees and Muskogee Creeks were a matrilineal society.
  • Different methods of getting white clothes whiter.
  • How to make the perfect grilled ham and cheese sandwich.
  • The secret in making tomato plants bloom too well regardless of the black thumb I possess. And slightly more embarrassing;
  • I known that there is a 1 out of 8192 chance of getting a shiny pokemon and the different methods of getting one (first encounter of a shiny was a  Zubat–EW!)

Out of the seven points, I can explain the different methods of getting a shiny pokemon whether it’s a starter, a legendary (that hasn’t been shiny-locked), or a common pokemon throughout the game. Getting a shiny is extremely rare and difficult to obtain or find unless you received based on an Nintendo Event going in your region, received from a fellow trainer in a trade, or–like I did–stumbled around a particular area until one appeared. Two methods to get one yourself is to:

Fishing Chaining: often you would need to obtain a fishing rod of some sorts (old, good, or super) and a pokemon who knows the move Surf and preferably one that has the ability “sticky hold” or “suction cups” (Octillery is a good example). This pokemon with this ability needs to be put in the first spot for your team. A good spot to go to to boost your odds is to fish in a “tile” surrounded by your trainer, a rock, a unfishable tile (one you can’t surf or fish on) and the shore. Get a fishing streak going and try to avoid reeling in too fast or slow, the random “nothing is biting”, leaving the area or turning your device off.

Breeding: get the pokemon you desire a shiny for in two different regions (say one from France and yours from your region) and has to be from the same egg group or it will not work. Place into a Day Care Center. Receive the egg after 256 steps and take the time to hatch it. The chance of getting a shiny becomes a little greater when equipped with the shiny charm after complete the pokedex. This is also known as the Masuda Method.
