Behold! Hell has burst forth and legions of demons are looking for Dick Cheney, their long-lost uncle.
Ok, this is the result of a mining mistake in the town of Darvaz. The article says it’s in Uzbekistan, though this Wikipedia article says the town is in Tajikistan. It wouldn’t surprise me that there’s more than one Darvaz in the world. Anyway, this will certainly make arranging the vacation a bit more troubling for Expedia. Tajikistan isn’t within their purview, I’m afraid. You’ll need to explore other options, like Turkish Air.

“My CEO walked off with $41 million and all I got was this lousy T-shirt!”
Cute, methinks. A great example of the cynicism that most have of corporate America, even those who live within it, and rely deeply upon this system for their livelihoods. I wonder when corporate leaders will finally realize that they’ve overdrawn their credibility account and that few trust them. Perhaps it’s unjust that all are lumped together, but that’s the nature of things. All within that umbrella need to work together to build trust. First, they must realize that the trust isn’t there; that the relationship is damaged. Hearing executive after executive complain about the distrust and cynicism that they face shows how they just don’t get it. Interesting, really, how many leaders demand and expect trust, but are unwilling to earn it.

Exciting stuff for geeks like me. I’m reminded of the dreams of my boyhood, envisioning other worlds, imagining seeing the solar system up close. Silly, perhaps, but there it is.
I’ve been involved with World Water Day for several years. Colbert’s spoof on this is a delight.
Here's some insight into the strange things I waste brain-time with.
Why the 6 million dollar man didn't knock his head off the first time he sneezed?
Why Luke Skywalker's uncle and aunt didn't give him a different last name, or at least hide it?
How much time passed between Luke meeting Obiwan, and Obiwan's "ascentiion" on the Death Star. How was Luke able to learn do damn much in so short a time?
