Former Honeymoon Capital of the World is now eerily abandoned

quote [ For honeymooners nothing was more romantic than the Pocono Mountains, in northeastern Pennsylvania. Now it's the Former Honeymoon Capital of the World as the resorts sit abandoned. ]

I remember people getting married, and talking about going to the Poconos on their honeymoons, and all I could think was "WHY?"

Did find it interesting that Eric Frein was holed-up there for a spell in the abandoned resorts. They currently all have the charm and ambiance of a row of abandoned meth-cooking trailers in the middle of the Mojave desert.

The secret trade in baby chimps

quote [ His black hair is ruffled and his dirty nappy scrapes the concrete floor as he crawls towards the familiar figures of the men who have been holding him captive.

The baby chimp, ripped away from his family in the wild, is the victim of a lucrative and brutal smuggling operation, exposed by a 12-month-long BBC News investigation spanning half a dozen countries. ]

Apparently there is a black market for baby chimps that I never knew existed.

Taiwan Scrambles Jets, Navy as China Aircraft Carrier Enters Taiwan Strait

quote [ TAIPEI ?

Taiwan scrambled jets and navy ships on Wednesday as a group of Chinese warships led by China's sole aircraft carrier sailed north through the Taiwan Strait,the latest sign of heightened tensions between Beijing and the self-ruled Taiwan.

The Soviet-built Liaoning aircraft carrier, returning from exercises in the South China Sea, was not trespassing in Taiwan's territorial waters but entered its air defense identification zone (ADIZ) in the southwest, Taiwan's defense
ministry said.

As a result Taiwan scrambled jets and navy ships to ?surveil and control? the passage of the Chinese ships through the narrow body of water separating Taiwan and China. ]

Please, please, don't be a diversion from Pissgate.

California appeared as an island on numerous 17th-century maps, and a 16th-century ?Map of the Arctic? by Gerardus Mercator included a colossal magnetic mountain at the North Pole. ]
