Consider the following pictures.
Do they inspire you to ask these types of questions...
Will anyone notice I'm absent from work because I'm trekking through
the glaciated mountains of Patagonia?
Would anyone really care if I don't bring back any t-shirts?
Why do the Australian Aborigines worship Ayers Rock?
What sort of mysterious rituals take place here at Uluru?
If I ask really nice, would they let me climb to the top and sleep in my tent?
Is there an organization who will pay me to conduct a scientific study on Aitutaki atoll in the
Cook Islands, to determine whether or not it's hazardous for a person to live long-term
in close proximity to white sand and azure water, suriviving only on fresh fruit and fish?
Were these really landing platforms for ancient astronauts, who flew around in triangle-shaped
spaceships, or were they built by thousands of naked Egyptians for a ruler with an ego the
size of 10,000 Hollywood movie stars?
How come nobody is home? Where did they go? How soon can I move in?
Are these anomolies on Mars really made by ancient humans who colonized Earth
100,237.4 years ago? How come one is wearing a stupid-looking helmet and looks vaguely
like some guy I knew in college? Why is the other face smiling?
