A Crap Shot
I've been sufffering a severe case of Mercator Projectionilitis while mulling over the Trans Siberian route. China appears bigger because its nearer to the equator and more central in the world map. China also appears bigger because we know its densely populated. This is relative to Russia which is approximately twice the size of China.
It makes a difference to your travel psyche; transversing through barren land when blighted with dysentery. Moscow-Beijing or Beijing-Moscow?
Since I like to mix' em up, the first thing I did today was to read spam. The count this morning was 112 (I trash them regularly).
72 were about some mortgage facility.
21 were about some stock tip.
15 were about getting your Green Card.
4 were about some hair loss product.
Whatever happen to "Gain 3 inches in length and producing harder and longer erections."?
Sheesh. The quality of spam these days.
