Countries Where English Is An Official Language

english_l.bmp

So when you're choosing your apocalypse bolt-hole, you might want to consider which lingua the locals sprechen. And yes that little blue speck in Central America is Belize which speaks English thanks to its history as a British colony. Here's some info on fleeing retiring to Belize as an American. Of course there's also Guyana to the south, but it seems a little far from the US and a little too close to Venezuela. Next best options would probably be some of the Caribbean islands.

All in all English has been remarkably successful for a language that started off as a bastard tongue of German tribes, Vikings, and French noblemen on some island in the North Atlantic.


So Why Did Joran van der Sloot Kill Stephany Tatiana Flores Ramirez?
Well he's a sociopath who can't seem to take no for an answer. And she apparently played for the other team which makes for a deadly combination I guess. You know - he almost certainly managed to get away with Natalie Holloway's murder so all he had to do for the rest of his life was to just be normal and nobody could have touched him. But when you're abnormal, being normal is hard.

16-Year-Old Jessica Watson and Her Voyage Around The World
In a pink sailboat. She began her journey on Oct. 18, 2009 in Sydney, Australia and traveled 23000 nautical miles in 210 days eventually crossing the Pacific Ocean, the equator, the Atlantic and Indian oceans. Currently she is the youngest sailor to have voyaged around the globe without assistance. But as much as I admire her achievement, if I had been her father I would have vetoed this until she was at least 18 or 21 years old. And made sure she was able to repel boarders.

10 Bizarre Sexual Records (NSFW-ish)
At least two of these have been featured on the blog before. And a word to the M&Ms: No one likes a boaster. Especially not Ace's advertisers.

Don't Use Google maps If You're Committing a Crime in Louisiana
Because that will get you an extra year in prison. So I guess the lesson here is to use your smartphone instead of printing anything out.
