Weather Sealed: The farthest point from a Micky Dee's.

"Between the tiny Dakotan hamlets of Meadow and Glad Valley lies the McFarthest Spot: 107 miles distant from the nearest McDonald's, as the crow flies, and 145 miles by car!"


Wikipedia: Shiva.

"In some Hindu denominations, Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva represent the three primary aspects of the divine, and are collectively known as the Trimurti. In this school of religious thought, Brahma is the creator, Vishnu is the maintainer or preserver, and Shiva is the destroyer or transformer"


New Scientist: The exploding internet.

"Internet traffic is growing by about 50% annually, with video and music streaming rising fastest."
