    On January 9, 1493, Christopher Columbus saw 3 mermaids and described them as "Not half as beautiful as they are painted". They were Manatees.

    Old style Greek licence plate on that car, I think: 1972-1983 style.

    Like Stott Hall Farm on the M62 in England: the house in the middle of the motorway.

    Quite sexist, ageist and racist. A woman, a 30 year old or negroid, nary to be seen.

    The real leader of the 'free world'




    But yes - most are still 'mature'-age men.

    (then there's Jacinda here, but she is another story on populism by any means)
