Titanic Nominations
1. Worst Souvenir I brought back some durian-flavored dodol candy from Malaysia. It’s like chewing a gelatinous cube of rancid, beef-flavored butter. I save it for my bravest—or most irritating—guests.
2. Worst Travel Plans The assignment: spend a summer weekend in Provincetown. The hitch: no one mentioned it was Bear Week. I’ve never been sexually harassed as much as I was that weekend.
3. Worst Airline Security Procedures Montenegro Airlines. At Podgorica Airport, I checked my bag and went to the gate, which was just a set of glass doors opening onto the tarmac. I watched as the baggage handlers unloaded all of the bags halfway between the plane and the gate. On the walk outside to the air stairs, I had to stop at the pile and point. “That’s my bag, now load it on the plane.” Not reassuring.
4. Worst Car Rental In San Francisco, our family rental car had a broken passenger seatback. When we tried to trade it in, the car rental agent somehow convinced us all their cars were like that. Every time the car climbed a hill, the seat fully reclined and I was left staring at blue, blue sky.

5. Worst Toilet Three words that strike fear into the heart of even the most seasoned traveler: Albanian gas station.

    nevertheless losing body fat. That is an average of
    over 84 plants per week, or about a dozen per day.

    Labor force participation rates increased from the mid-1960s through the 1990s, driven by more women entering
    the workforce, baby boomers entering prime working years in the 1970s and 1980s,
    and increasing pay for skilled laborers.

    Here are somne insightful quotes I like… Lemme know if you like them:

    “Imagination is more important than knowledge.

    “I, at any rate, am convinced that He (God) does not throw
    dice.”

    “The important matter is not to stop questioning; interest has its own reason for existing.”

    “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I am not sure about the universe.”

    “Falling in love is not at all the most stupid thing that people do
    – but gravitation cannot be held responsible for it.”

    “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.

    “Anyone who hasn’t made a mistake has never tried anything new.”

    “Try not to become a man of success, but instead try to become a man of value”
