I once went through the Khyber Pass – well twice, actually, since I went both ways – and I was scandalized to find nobody was selling Khyber Pass t-shirts. It’s my right as an American to buy a souvenir t-shirt everyplace I go.

I gather you can’t see them at all, from any angle, unless you build an intrusive contraption and sell souvenirs.

These viewing platforms really annoy me. They are designed for people who take cable cars to the summit and who want the view without putting any effort into deserving it. They ruin the view and the mountain.

I’m w/Bas. Keep me on solid ground, please. I also have the vertigo problem, so that makes heights worse. My hubby & I recently visited the CN tower & I wouldn’t go NEAR the glass floor. I did, however, eat in the rotating restaurant! Yummy! :-) O Canada…

Welcome back Unca…sorta.. since you only sorta came back. I think a house party is in order for your house! Everyones house would be invited!

I hope Mr. Shotty can do as much damage as the GAU-8 Avenger cause I need to show Orlando “I Am More Feminine Than My VS Model Wife” Bloom the consequences of his actions.

Miranda Bloom…. such a travesty!!
