I Did Not Know That!

I did not know that
Did you know that...
  • 111,111,111 X 111,111,111 = 12345678987654321?
  • Did you know that during the middle ages, a slice of lemon was served with fish because it was thought the juice would dissolve any bones that were accidentally swallowed?
  • Did you know the word "tattoo" is one of the most misspelled words in the English language?
  • Did you know that when members of a choir sing, their heart rates become synchronized along with the melody and rhythm?
  • Did you know rockstar Alice Cooper used to babysit Keanu Reeves?
  • Did you know that from 1850 to 1940 marijuana was listed by the United States Phamacopedia as a useful medicine for nausea, rheumatism, and labor pains and was easily obtained at the local general store or pharmacy?
Did you also know that you could recover property that you left behind at a former tenancy?  Yes, you can.  For instance, say your mother's cousins aunt's mother's uncle twice removed became sick and he called you and asks you to come help him out until he recovers fully.  Being a dutiful relative, you break your lease and leave all your stuff behind in your rush to help.  Six months later you come back and you want to get your stuff but the landlord want's to hold it ransom until he gets the balance of the rent.  What are you going to do?

What I suggest you do is to go to your local county law library and take a look at California Forms of Pleading and Practice (Lexis), and look in Chapter 333 (Landlord Tenant), and look at section 333.93 (Request for abandoned property) and section 333.95 (Complaint to recover abandoned property after notice).  See?  Easy peasy.

The thing is, regardless of the problem(s) you face in life, odds are the good folks at your local county law library know where to lead you to help you find answers.  Yeah, we are that good.
