My mom sends me a bunch of email forwards. You know the kind: witty anecdotes, kids say the darndest things, pictures of people I don't really have any relationship with. Most of them don't do much for me. Occasionally, one slips through that is pretty cool. The latest one was one of the cool ones. It had a list of interesting geographic facts. I'll be reposting them in a series of micro-posts of the next few days.
