It's out just me, or is the answer always C on these Fark multiple choice tests.

But where can I get my child soldiers, conflict diamonds, gorilla filets, and syphilis from now?

At first I thought, "holy crap, an airport that takes large aircraft only had one fire truck." But then I remembered that I drive through some fairly rural areas where the volunteer has to go get the fire truck. If I am in a serious accident, I am just as farked as I would be in a plane crash in Sierra Leone.

All crashing airplanes will be diverted to the nearest body of water.

Spaghetti Westerns will never be the same without Sierra Leone.
I'll never get over his Macho Pictures.

Yikes, I'm flying tomorrow from LA to Chicago and I have a plane change in Sierra Leone.

I really hope they get that problem fixed in time.

Man, the things you will do for a $100 plane ticket....

Guess they won't be sending any more slaves across the Atlantic.


* Sierra Leone was one of the port areas for shipping slaves from the interior of Africa.

Hey no cheating on the quiz, keep your eyes on your own screen.

Is this because of the Sierra Leone viral video?

Sounds about right for Sierra Leone. About a dozen friends of mine have been there on service/mission trips to help at one of TWO hospitals in the entire country. My county in MI of less than 60K people has 4 hospitals and a country of millions of people has 2.

This is kind of sad in so many ways, but I do give them credit for making safety a priority (as much as it could be in this case) by not letting planes fly. No doubt there are places that would just cross their fingers and hope for the best.

I might be willing to pay for the repairs if the airport director, during a televised interview on this subject, would tell reporters that he doesn't know the lyrics, he just pounds the drum and does the Africa Face. Then does this:

"We are working very hard to fix the faulty gearbox system of the fire engine and to add to the fleet," general manager of the Sierra Leone Airports Authority, John Sesay, told Reuters.

Hopefully, the new one will have real siren.  The fireman are getting hoarse from having to make the siren noises themselves.  A horn would be equally welcome.

There is going to be a bath of blood.
