Thanks to Andre Tolme, now you will know that the capital of Mongolia is Ulaanbaatar, and that a par of 11,880 is possible. (Bonus golf link: Tundra Golf!)

Whenever you say "Ulaanbaatar", pretend you're a Klingon. It's fun.

I need a job that affords me more vacation days.

saw an article in the nytimes about this a few weeks ago, but it unfortunately is now archived and pay only. this one really captured my imagination.

Cool stuff. This is the kind of deliciously, wonderfully pointless thing that I wish I had enough free time to do.

I'm sorry. Does that article really say "bubonic plague-carrying marmots," or am I just hallucinating?

That's just a phrase I'd never expected to hear anywhere outside my own recurring nightmares, let alone at ESPN.

Very crafty of Tolme to have included a google tag like that. Search for bubonic plague carrying marmots and all you get is articles about Tolme. Nifty.
