Apparently nobody dies in Canada.

To be fair they are "Mostly Harmless".

I love the little caveat about meteors at the bottom. That's hilarious. Also, what the hell Swaziland?

Woah, I did not know that Zimbabwe was a hot bed for HIV. Went there last year on spring break, and I remember getting off the plane and then getting on it a week later. I hope my wife donates blood soon, so I'll know if I'm infected. Yikes, Friday just took a downward turn...
 
2012-04-27 10:07:39 AM
U.S. could have at least been heart attack or diabetes.
 
2012-04-27 10:07:58 AM
Zimbabwe, oh yeah.

They think sex with a virgin will cure AIDS. Farking savages, what century is it again?

You should go get tested at regular intervals anyway, not just after you fark your third hooker bareback.

meteor strike for antarctica? Really? I do see the note on this at the bottom, and get it is supposed to be funny ...but seriously I think maybe hypothermia, slipping on the ice, or falling into a crevasse would be more apropos.

/moldova sounds like fun

You realize HIV isn't passed like the common cold, right? If you had unprotected sex in sub-saharan Africa, you pretty much deserve what you get.

It wasn't like I was banging girls I met in bars. They've got this system there, run by the cab drivers, where you pay them money and they take you to safe places. It'd be a serious international crime if they were taking money and then giving you unclean women. $20 gets you a long way in Zimbabwe, by the way. It was like being a king for a week.

I think that faint whizzing sound you are hearing is the joke going over your head.

Since nobody has asked, I will.

Why in the fark would you go to Zimbabwe on spring break?

You just keep eating it, longing for the sweet release of death (or at least a good poop), which never comes.

Does "lawnmower" mean "illegal alien gardener"?

I wanted to use my frequent flier miles and that was the only destination with an open seat. I don't regret it one bit, though. If you like great food, beautiful women, and recreational drugs, then it's a complete blast.

How do you DO that? I mean, it's like a Maori folk legend, you don't even have any bait on the hook, you're just rubbing your own blood on it instead and end up pulling in legendary hauls with the stuff.
 
2012-04-27 10:20:17 AM
I see neither "Global Warming" (excuse me...."Climate Change") nor "Excess carbon emissions" nor "fertilizer run off" made the list.

Well that's a meaningless map....especially without explanatory text. How'd this get green-lighted?

Normally I ignore trolls, but I actually have spentmiles favorited as "Master Trollsmith". Once you realize what's going on, some of his more outrageous posts are truly beautiful. They are perfectly calibrated to be insanely inflammatory.

Someone's been paying attention, others, not so much. Everyone: do yourself a favor and click the star next to spentmiles's handle and select an appropriate color. You'll still see the reason that people are sent into a tizzy, but get the reminder that indeed, you're reading the post of one that likes to cause such reactions.

I'm not sure how I could die of "Female Suicide" in South Korea, unless some woman jumped from a building and landed on me or something like that.

Also... Japan gets "Old Age" but they don't mention the years of tentacle rape you must endure before you get there.
 
2012-04-27 10:28:40 AM
spentmiles is good because he tells stories about himself instead of focusing hatred on others.

Agreed. I had him ignored for a long time, but his stuff is just too great. It's just that much past the Poe's Law limit that I can really enjoy it.
