Wednesday Afternoon No-Fun Link


For some the trip will become a nightmare. A number of vacations are ruined by one or more of the following: drugs, alcohol, disorderly behavior, and preventable accidents.

That's the U.S. State Department warning potential spring breakers about the horrors that await them once they deplane. Here's my favorite part:

Because standards of security, safety and supervision are not the same in many countries as they are in the U.S., many young persons have died after automobile accidents, after falls from balconies or into open ditches, by drowning in the ocean as well as in hotel pools, and in water-sports mishaps, among others.

In other words, we can attribute those drownings, balcony tumbles, and ditch deaths to insufficient foreign "standards of security, safety and supervision."
