One advantage of living on Long Island (and for me personally, advantages of living here are very hard to come by) is the presence of large bodies of water open to kayaking and canoeing. Besides the obvious Long Island Sound and the Great Sound Bay, there are several rivers that can be explored by personal watercraft. One such river, is the Peconic on Eastern Long island. It originates near Brookhaven National Lab and lazily flows east, towards Riverhead and the crotch of Long Island and eventually empties into the Flanders Bay, which is apart of the Peconic Bay. This river has been on my list ever since I moved to Long Island but for variety of reasons (most of them bullshit excuses) never got around to it.

Začiatkom roku 2008 som sa s mojou mamou, učiteľkou na súkromnej Základnej škole Bellamos v Martine dohodol na vypustení dvoch travelbugov, cestujúcich predmetov, ktoré sa pohybujú po svete účastníkmi (hráčmi) celosvetovej hry nazývanej geocaching. Keďže sa mamina trieda volala trieda “Efraima Pančušiska”, boli travelbugy boli pomenované ako “Pipi Dlhá Pančucha” a “Pipilietko”.

Toto je záber na môj Garmin nüvi 205W pri kešovačke v Tvrdošíne. Kombinácia názvu ulice “Hríbiky” v Tvrdošíne so spôsobom akým Garmin interpretuje mapu Slovakia Roads skončila takouto srandovnou hláškou. Len pre informáciu dodám, že hríbiky ešte nerástli. This post simply makes no sense in English, only in Slovak.

This is an entertaining description of real geologists. I have no idea who authored this but I got a copy of this during 1998 excursion to Bulgaria (and it’s ore deposits). This article was posted on the wall in the chief geologist’s office in one of the many mines we visited that summer. It’s in particular offensive to geophysicists. Quite obviously I don’t identify with this pamphlet but find it funny nonetheless.
