Located between a freeway and a grocery store, this is a great replacement for an urban teen recreation center. This is where Highlanders have stick fights, where 14 year old Hienas lose their virginity and suburbanites smoke cigarettes amongst the foliage. This is an ideal place to drop acid and boogie board when the El Nino hits. It can be recognized by it's often steep concrete sides (great for wall riding)and blocks with raw rebar sticking up that must be negotiated in order to drop in. It's official purpose is to drain the waste water from the city and grows the most invasive non-native plants around. Geographic Location: Sur de California y mas lugares.

Nov 27 Word of the Day
A stupid person; it refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area (wrinkles, creases, etc.) a brain has, the smarter the person is. Conversely, a person with a smooth brain (no wrinkles) has less surface area and would therefore be stupid.
That fucking smooth brain put his shirt on backwards again...

That smooth brain is dumber than a pile of shit.

One of the many large drainage ditches that crisscross the small rural town of Somis, California. Some of these narrow canyons are nearly sixty feet deep and are home to coyotes, rats, snakes, and stinging nettle. During heavy rains, the edges of these ravines are subject to mudslides which can sometimes result in the loss of farmland.
"Barranca" is the Spanish word for "ravine."
