This Is Fine

I am coping by listening to 80s music by day and watching old episodes of Cheers by night.

Antarctic marathon

I can't decide if this is amazing or ridiculous.

I saw a tweet today of a woman with cancer running 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents. 7 continents? Did she set up a personal marathon along the Antarctic coast? No.

There is actually an Antarctic marathon and it's held annually at Union Glacier, a privately run tourist camp at almost 80 degrees south. It's serviced by Il-76s. You have to watch this video.

What's more, there is an outfit that will let you do 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents for 36,000 euros (which is much less than I thought it would cost). The itinerary:

18-JanArrive at Punta Arenas, Chile

Kimi in the military

He is speaking clearly!

Subaru SVX ad

Never seen this before. H/t Ramon/Ripituc.

It's Bottas!

Hamilton will obviously be the No 1 driver on the team. Any predictions? Will the other teams catch up?

Huell Howser goes to LA's Pink's Hot Dogs

He was a national treasure.

Eating the Globe: Bhutan

I got the Number 23, the Jashaa Maroo, at a Himalayan restaurant in Berkeley. The place has pretty good reviews. I got an Indian beer, served with ice cubes. I'm not sure if it's a cultural thing or if they were just trying to cool room temperature beer. We also got chicken momos (dumplings) and garlic naan, which were tasty. But my entree was sour and I'm not a fan of brown rice. I couldn't finish it.

Africa: Algeria, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Morocco, Nigeria, Somalia, South Africa
