Babies in Taiwan

posted by Martin Rubli at 14:55

Sometimes you have to be thankful for Taiwan's low birth rate. Some little kids here have to endure all kinds of abuse as I would like to illustrate with two photos recently taken.

This situation was just plain weird: The woman crossed the street using the crosswalk and then got right in line with the scooters waiting for the green light. She acted as if testing the effects of carbon monoxide on toddlers was the natural thing to do.

Google Maps and the mysterious case of the missing lake

One-dimensional lake on Google Maps

Interestingly enough the feature to report a problem has also disappeared. Perhaps a sign of Ostrich effect?

Anyway, until they get that fixed the ever-growing map on OpenStreetMap depicts the area more accurately:

Recently seen at a local supermarket chain ... cute bed sheets for your kids:

But then I took a second look:

Carcinogenic dyes and heavy metals - if that doesn't put you to sleep, what will?
