I wonder how long I’m going to bother with numbering these lists? Regardless, here’s this week’s stuff.
- Graham Hughes holds the world record for most countries visited without flying. How many? ALL OF THEM, plus a few wanna-bees. He made a video of 1 second’s worth of each country. And just in case new ones appear (South Sudan, for example) he also traveled home from the last one without flying so he can continue the streak if he needs to. His website is here.
- Think the abortion issue is a modern one? Hardly. This article discusses how we’ve been struggling with it for over a thousand years.
- Two roller-coaster related links appeared on my screen this week which is a clear sign that I should share them. One exists and has a gimmick at the top of the first hill and one hasn’t been built yet.
- Two amateurs are nearing completion on their scene-by-scene replica of Raiders of the Lost Ark. This is the story of their 33-year long project. Long article but definitely worth reading.
