Saturday Strangeness

In the country with the biggest obesity problem on the planet, 11,500 turn up to watch 2 people get weighed. I wonder how many burgers they got through between them?

A welcome relief from the election campaign, instead of talking about a posh bloke, Labour and what the outcome will be, we can talk about a posh bloke, labour and what the outcome will be.

The boxing match in LA will generate over £250m. You'd like to think that some of it would find its way to Nepal. I hope that some of the folk who spend £30-60k to climb Everest would think it more worthwhile to spend that money saving Nepali lives.

  1. Sadly, it appears that significant numbers of the Westerners trekking/climbing in Nepal have actually been private-chartering helicopters (that would otherwise have been used for rescue/food drop missions) to get them out of the country. They probably won't even have any small change left for the actual Nepalese.
