This Place Called Earth

The Boston Globe outdoes itself again with this photo montage of our fair planet, Earth. These pictures are like the documentary Planet Earth, except in pictures. After seeing them, it made me want to travel the world. I also learned that I haven’t travelled nearly enough. Check out the pictures here

All the pictures were taken by the world renowned french photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. He specializes in aeriel photography using subjects that span the entire globe. Can we say: coolest job ever?

Calling All Ugly Girls

In Austrialia, in the “beautiful” mining town of Mt. Isa, the mayor has made a call on all “beauty-disadvantaged” women to move to the town. He said that there are “five blokes for every girl” in the fair city. He urged women all over Australia with “beauty deficiencies” to move to the town because of a severe lack of females due to the local mining industry, which is primarily male-driven.


If you’re a girl who scored below a 6.5 on, this place may be for you!

The mayor, John Molony, has stood by his comments even in light of the rage expressed by the local female population. Go figure. Now if only there was a city where there’s “five girls to every guy” out there somewhere for guys with “handsome-issues” could go. Read the full story on Mr. Molony here.
