Chernobyl

Abandoned Places, Google Maps, Links Comments Off

Chernobyl, Ukraine, Ocober 1995.
I have always been fascinated by the aftermath of the events that took place over 21 at the power plant outside of town Pripyat known as Chernobyl. On April 26, 1986 at 1:23 am a series of design flaws, human error and lack of communication merged resulting in the worst nuclear disaster of all time. The aftermath has caused the death of thousands of people, the abandoning of entire towns within 20 miles of reactor 4 and billions of dollars in clean up costs. Some people have been able to get into the exclusion zone with their cameras to show the rest of the world their results.

The first site I encountered years ago, Kidd of Speed was one of the first internet sites to show images of the area today. Their is controversy over the some of the details of her story, but her pictures speak for themselves.

The Einstein Puzzle

Fun Comments Off

Supposedly, Albert Einstein wrote this riddle, and said 98% of the world could not solve it.

There are 5 houses in 5 different colors. In each house lives a man with a different nationality. The 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same beverage.

The question is: “Who owns the fish?”

Hints:

* The Brit lives in the red house.
* The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
* The Dane drinks tea.
* The green house is on the left of the white house.
* The green house’s owner drinks coffee.
* The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
* The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
* The man living in the center house drinks milk.
* The Norwegian lives in the first house.
* The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
* The man who keeps the horse lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
* The owner who smokes Bluemasters drinks beer.
* The German smokes Prince.
* The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
* The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.
