Just a bit outside

Boy, this little news item is going to ruin a lot of vacation memories for countless people.

Apparently, everyone who’s ever had their picture taken here:

at the Four Corners Monument with their arms and legs splayed into what they believed at the time to be four different states was, actually in Arizona the whole time.

Seriously, I’d be a little pissed, but since I’ve never been I can’t get too wound up about the whole thing. Hopefully they’ll move the monument to the right spot.

Or at least put a sign up telling people it really isn’t where they say it is.

Haha. Yeah, *if* I'd ever been, I'd be upset. That's a pretty big oops though.

Thank you for providing my near-end of day chuckle.

I have a photo of myself standing on the Equator outside Quito...except it wasn't actually the Equator at all. The silly French scientists screwed it up, and were about 100 yards off.

that's funny... even though I didn't even know that this monument existed. I blame it on being an alien!

PS: no fun word this time

Liebchen - Opps is an understatement.

Fearless - You're always welcome.

Shannon - A hundred yards? That's not too bad considering the line goes all the way around the world. But it still takes a lot of fun out of the pictures.

Titania - My work here is done: I've increased the knowledge of a fellow human.

and I'll be forever grateful to you for that...
