There's a local taxi business that I've finally learned never to call on ever again. They are not only very rude on the phone and just hang up on you, but the cabs take forever to arrive and don't even care that they do. Today was the first time since early January that I called a cab and half an hour later they still hadn't come. They probably never did. I ended up having a meltdown and then I went on Google where I found many other people had the same problems I did and it mostly got one-star reviews. However, there's another local taxi business that got decent reviews so I *might* give them a try.

But really, you can't rely on anyone or anything anymore. Thanks to that cab I never got to go out and enjoy the beautiful warm day we were having. After my meltdown I'm too tired to even walk anywhere now. :(

A black hole the width of a nickel would have slightly more mass than Earth.

The Central African Republic is a very dangerous country for tourists to visit. Possibly even the most dangerous country in the world. From what I've read, it doesn't sound like a very good place to live in, either.

The piano Freddie Mercury plays in Bohemian Rhapsody is the same exact piano Paul McCartney plays in Hey Jude.

The first commercial telefax service was introduced in 1865, some 11 years before the invention of telephones.

Today I learned that I'm very vulnerable like everybody else around me.

Nope, as there has been a great deal of civil warfare as well as decades of corruptions and dictators..

Despite the name, there are no whales resident in Wales- as far as anyone has observed so far.
Maybe they only come out at night.

Australia is the only Western country in the world to not have a Bill of Rights.

With the amount of plastics in the world's oceans it would take close to several centuries to possibly clean it up

In Japan, Ronald McDonald is called Donald McDonald due to a lack of a clear "r" sound in Japanese.
