Here's something I bet you didn't know. The collision capital of the world is Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. Believe it or not, more cars are wrecked there per capita than anywhere else on the planet. It's so bad, most folks don't bother performing any routine maintenance on their cars because most cars don't last longer than a year!

Okay, so, my family (wife, daughters, son, kittens) may well think that I have nothing useful to say. And, despite the fact that I start some sentences with "and", they may well be correct. However, irrespective of the above, here's something you should...or, at least will, given that you'll continue on in this post, know...at one point in the recent past (something like the last 35 years), all native inhabitants of Papua New Guinea had TASTED HUMAN FLESH. I know, I know. It seems like the use of capital letters makes me no more reliable than the 867-5309 on a bathroom wall. Well, you'd be in your right mind to think so. I did, however, used to do business in New Zealand (that's right by PNG, btw). That is, until I got canned. Again. That's 2 for 2 in my last 2 jobs. So, there you go. Go ahead & decide if you want to believe my posting, or not.
