Hodge Podge Hai

Hodge Podge Two

Wrapping up my visit to Mỹ (the U.S.) and Canada, I thought I'd pass on a few things I've been collecting the past few months:

1)

Hang Son Doong is the world's largest known cave and I posted something about it at the end of my 19 May post. Now it's #1 on The Smithsonian's 21st Century Life List: 25 Great New Places to See! I'm especially excited because I booked a spot on the five-day expedition tour starting 9 February!

This page has more links about Hang Son Doong: Son Doong tops Smithsonian's list...


2) Here is a top candidate for most ironic t-shirt:

The t-shirt sported by the "gentleman" on the right says "Lower Taxes + Less Government = More Freedom." Uh-huh... I wonder this moron has a clue who pays the firefighters he's thanking? If he got what his shirt says he wants, he'd also get a HUGE multi-tens-of-thousands invoice for the firefighters' work in his Libertarian Utopia.

He should move to Somalia where every day they experience the reality of Ayn Rand's concept of a perfect society.


3)Random Hyperlinks of-interest:

The next post will be soon after my return home in mid-September...

Until then, stay safe.
