Couldn’t help but run across some great music researching for the cultural section of this infographic…

This 1985 hit from Soda Stereo is a little Talking Heads, a little Kajagoogoo; plus, my limited Spanish seems enough to comprehend its themes of boredom, an unfulfilled relationship, and also something about video porn. You will have this song in your head for the rest of the day.

And watch No Lo Soporto’s tribute to the most significant air-travel-themed Twilight Zone story of all. But it was all a dream… OR WAS IT? (Yes & no.) The English safety announcement for ‘Avi NLS’ should be adopted by other airlines.

Not to mention this perfect quote from Jorge Luis Borges about that 1982 conflict between Argentina and the UK over useless (except to puffins) real estate: “The Falklands thing was a fight between two bald men over a comb.” Good one, JLB.
