Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Why I miss having the time to surf the Internet occasionally

Man, there's some cool stuff out there.

I really like Strange Maps, a blog that highlights ... well, strange maps. Recently they had a couple of cool ones:

Here's a map of the Hutt River Province Principality, an area 500 kilometers north of Perth in Western Australia that is a relatively old micronation. A wheat farmer declared his independence from Australia in 1970 and became Prince Leonard I. Australia, which recognizes its tourism potential, pretty much leaves it alone. Visit the web site, which includes a section on the navy of Hutt River. Odd for a landlocked "country" to have a navy, but what the hell.

Then we have this post, which tells about a woman getting an unusual tattoo. You can read about it at the post, but I thought I'd steal the picture because it's almost unbelievable:

Yes, it's a map of Hanover, Germany, in 1896. It's not done yet, either. Man, people are kooky.

I wish I had more time to dig up more wacky stuff on the Internet. You'll just have to settle for little bits and pieces!

I'm a sucker for US States Renamed For Countries With Similar GDPs, which came out after you posted.

ssshhheeeeeeesh... i can finally check up on Greg and make comments on his Blog.

I wholly agree with Roger. I am going to Ireland next week to visit friends, and I hope I hit it rich so that I never have to work again.

My ex-girlfriend's flat was at the top of the right shoulder-blade.

Happy days...
