You know how sometimes hikers or kids get lost in the woods and end up dying of "exposure"? I think I know how that works after spending literally my entire Sunday on top of a cliff by the ocean in Pacifica. I feel like the sun beat me up. I put on sunblock, but due to what I'm going to have to call "application oversights" I ended up with some very specific burns on

- My left wrist near my watch
- My ears
- The hollow of my throat
- The sides, but not the back, of my neck

Plus I don't think my nose escaped solar onslaught despite repeated coats.

Still, it's not just the sun; just being outside for an entire day strains a dude. This is knowledge I have now, for the future. The knowledge exists inside of me.
