Welcome to my World of Wonderment

Our planet is a neat place, full of weird and unusual people doing weird and unusual things. One oddball thing I like to do is geocache. What other activity is there that makes people travel hundreds of miles to climb a mountain, wade a river, and fight a Bigfoot, just to be the first person to sign a piece of paper rolled up in a 35mm film canister stuffed in the knot hole of a tree? I can't think of any other sport that has such a great mix of technology and the wonderful outdoors. A lot of geocaches are placed in a beautiful setting, or hidden in a challenging or unique way, or in a historical setting. Geocaching allows the finder to share in some of the hiders favorite places, and along the way you get to meet some interesting characters, and occasionally learn something new. While this blog is primarily a geocaching blog, I also use this place to post the occasional funny video or weird news story, or as a platform to rant or rave about something I really have to share. But for the most part this website is about you, the weirdo walking around in circles, talking into your GPS unit like it's a phone, pretending your taking pictures of a phone booth to find find the tiniest micro-cache, or circling your car around and around a light pole in a parking lot trying to retrieve a cache without even getting out of your car.


Penn and Teller Burning the Flag

I know this is purely fiction (just like everything else Penn and Teller does) but it is classic Penn and Teller. They fictionally burn a flag, in the fictional White House. And I bet it probably still pissed a lot of non-fiction people off. I assume this is from the West Wing, but I have never watched it before, so I'm not sure.

This does address something that is a very fundamental right, the freedom of speech. If I want to burn a flag, then dammit, I will burn a flag. There is nothing more patriotic than burning your own flag.

Definitely the West Wing. I don't remember this episode, but I bet you're right about the angry people.

There were a lot of scenes in that show you would really like.
