^In Bhutan that is a fairly common decoration of cultural significance. Odd for sure by our standarrds, but it shouldn't be hard to find a lot more of them.

North Americans are so uptight.

That makes sense. I'm gonna get a sacred thread, tie it around my johnson, and paint a couple of pics on my house. Do you think my wife will mind?

A brief visit to one block of Greenmount Ave. in the Johnston Square neighborhood of East Baltimore.

Looks like he's nodding out (there was another guy in a close by block doing the same):




Next some excitement near the end of the block:




I thought the guy in the uniform was a cop, but then realized he was probably a corrections officer from the jail in the background on the left.




I've driven on Greenmount a couple of times, and it is an interesting drive.

Maybe it's just me, but this seems like a harsh "Time Out" penalty location.




I wonder how the little fella figured out how to get in there.

The Seaport District in Boston is rapidly going from parking lots to mid rises and it has created some funny instances where moving to a new street drastically changes what is built.

Before (2011)



Just around the corner

After (2014)
