I realized this morning after seeing what is likely the best depiction of a beloved movie cast reunion ever(1) that anytime The Princess Bride is mentioned the immediate thought that enters my mind is the scene on the boat where Fezzik and Inigo Montoya are responding to each other in rhyme.

I know that title's a bit of a cliche but on the drive to Ohio this weekend I decided it's true for me.
I don't recall the specifics of what brought it to my attention but with 48 hours of reflection off and on I think it starts with this item:
1. Anytime I'm in a public bathroom, I check the valve on top of the urinal. In all my life, I've found each one is made by one of two companies: Zurn and Sloan(1). It's an obscure peice of Americana that ties the states together. As far as I can remember, I've only discussed this two times in my life. The impetus for this tenant of the code was a discussion with a high school friend, Tom, (2) who if memory serves likely made the discovery. The second time was with a pledge brother, Ryan, who really took to the idea and I know will check the urinal cap from time to time on his own.
(1) If I understood how to invest in individual stocks and not just mutual funds and the like, I think I'd invest in these two companies - they appear to have a stranglehold an industry that is needed everywhere. (2)I haven't seen or thought about Tom in years, last I knew he was studying law at UVA
