Kvick Tänkare

The next time your special someone sings that Modern English classic to you, ask them if they’re aware of the serious consequences of their whim:

All Antarctica would be under water at this point. The north polar waters and the water over the vast, recently submerged territories in Siberia and Canada would be getting deeper. At the same time, equatorial waters would be getting more shallow.

Large land areas near the equator continue growing and join with each other. By now, nearly all of Canada, Europe, and Russia are covered by a northern circumpolar ocean.

Peter from the blog The Strategist has returned to blogging life with his observations during a month visiting Vanuato.  His blog is called ‘Archipelago‘.

Corona beer is vile and I won’t allow it in my house.  I apparently not only have good taste in beer but a highly attuned sixth sense for foiling terrorist plots.  Note to al-Qaeda:  You’re going to have to work harder to catch us at that little game.  Really, if you’re going to assassinate someone with beer spend a buck you cheapskates and get a nice microbrew.

EnglishRussia has some really cool illustrations for a children’s magazine.
