Today’s Top 5

As he grew older,

Narcissus became increasingly short-sighted.

98 ... 99 ...

100. Well, that's enough push-ups for today.

Stream-sippers

We stream-drinking hikers of the 1950s always carried a cup on our belt. There was a stainless steel one with handle designed to slip under your belt for the purpose.

Drinking Problem

Thought it was kind of odd he didn’t use his hand to cup some water. But then I spotted the cigarette!

Watch out!

There's snakes under those rocks, Indy!

Yum!

Come for the hiking, stay for the giardia!
