7.12.13 … a whole host of things that really don’t matter … Including Hostess Twinkies (claimed by Georgians?) “You know, if you’re from around here, you’ve got to like Coca-Cola, you’ve got to like Lance peanuts and you’ve got to like Twinkies” … The Newsroom Season 2, July 14 … mindless laundry humor … real-life Skyfall Island via Streetview … and a tweet …..

Twinkies: Twinkies Returning to Grocery Stores  … July 15, if you care.

“You know, if you’re from around here, you’ve got to like Coca-Cola, you’ve got to like Lance peanuts and you’ve got to like Twinkies.”

And a few facts for you …

The Newsroom.

 humor, mindless:  i think I “need” this in my laundry!  Did you know that many children do not know what a laundry pin is?

Hashima Island, Skyfall 007 deserted island,  Google Streetview, Streetview:  Explore the illegal, real-life Skyfall Island via Streetview  … Hashima Island – Google Maps. This one is not on my bucket list … but its fun to visit via Streetview. :

Welcome to Hashima Island: once the most densely populated place on Earth (w/ 13k people per sq km), its population is now a solid zero, after being totally abandoned in ’74 and, for a time, forbidden to set foot on. And, while tour boats can now take peeps to the sliver of the island with no urban ruins again, getting anywhere close to the crumbling monoliths is strictly prohibited… Unless of course, you’re Google.

GOOGLE

If it reminds you of the island from Skyfall, that’s because it inspired the island from Skyfall (we mean the villain’s lair, not Great Britain).
