This is not that important, I guess.

You've probably seen lizards doing pushups. (If not, here are some google links.)
But did you know that when you do pushups in Spanish, you're doing "lizards"?
Just wanted everyone* to know that.
Thank you, and have a nice day.

Hi, I'm reader #5. I'm subing for reader #4 who is out today. So why is Gila pronounced funny?

It's not very funny if you're the Gila Monster. Imagine being called a monster and you haven't even tried to genocide anybody.
Anyway, G before certain vowels (i, e, u) is (99% of the time) pronounced somewhere between "H" in american english and Ch as in Chutzpah.
