Recently I have been watching a-lot of Running Man, and this inspired me to come up with a new watermark as a parody of their original logo. I hope nobody starts issuing warning letters, its really just for fun!

Earlier this year, on 17th January during the festival of Thaipusam, Hindus gather to celebrate the full moon in the month of Thai. The Kavadi is a physical burden through which the devotees implore for help from the God Murugan.

On Thaipusam, devotees undertake a pilgrimage while engaging in several acts of devotion, such as carrying kavadi (burdens). The most basic form of burden may entail carrying a pot of milk, but piercing of the skin, tongue or cheeks with vel skewers is also common.

Eating Dirty Food as a Clean Eater

On Tynan

I'm sitting outside the Viking Museum in Oslo Norway. The museum is closed, but the little ice cream stand in the otherwise empty parking lot is still open. I'm on my third ice cream.

Eating ice cream in Norway is about as nonsensical as it gets. The ice creams are the crappy kind you find in freezer chests at truck stops. Norway is the most expensive country on the Big Mac index (and easily the most expensive country I've ever visited), so each ice cream costs around $4 US. It's not really warm here. Oh-- and I don't usually eat ice cream.

When I travel in new countries for short periods of time, say under a week, I allow myself to eat anything and everything. I do poorly with grey areas, so my diet is either 100% on or 100% off (although some things, like soda and margarine, are so offensive that I never eat them). It's usually 100% on, but I recognize that with two or three days in a country, my time may not be best spent scouting around for a decently healthy restaurant. Also, I'm pragmatic enough to know that a few days of eating crap food probably won't affect my long term health.
