News, but not the serious kind
Seeing Libya, from surface to air!
Blog Guy, I could use some of your famous travel advice. With Libya being in the news lately I’d love to go see it, but I’m concerned about getting around. I’m not even sure how to get there. I’ll be starting my trip in Mexico, so I need to get…
From the Halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli? No problem. Libya is already building up tourism, and offers fast, efficient ways to get from place to place, using the thousands of unused missiles littering the country.
This happy family in the photo above is about to start their Libyan adventure, and they’ll see all the sights while cruising at a brisk 4,500 miles per hour. Sit down and buckle up, kids, we’re ready for takeoff!
That looks neat. Do they let you listen to your iPod on the flight?
I love it when you make science simple, Blog Guy. How about the airports? Is it easy to tell where flights are going?
They’re all going the same place. Surface-to-Air.
One other thing. Sometimes I’m a bit queasy when I fly. What if I lose my lunch while I’m hanging on to that missile?
That happens a lot, and it’s so normal there’s a name for it. You’ve heard of projectile vomiting?
