Second, is the rest of your story true?
It's all true. Well, not true in the fact that Coke is somehow morally superior to Pepsi, but true in the fact that as spoken by their president, it's considered prophecy (or was at the time), and it's stuck with me all of my life.
That geneology vault is up Little Cottonwood Canyon and is highly guarded. It's 600 feet into solid granite, and who knows what else is in there.
Beyond the giant magic salamander, my favorite is The Oath of Vengeance. Although some in the upper-echelons would have you believe that the practice has ceased (much like polygamy), I think it's fair to say that they are full of shit, and I'm quite sure that a certain recent presidential candidate has taken the vow. I know you may have preferred him to what we got, but please believe me when I say that you narrowly averted disaster.
