What’s Up With The Uturuncu Volcano?

What’s 20,000 foot high, lives in southwest Bolivia and is blowing up like a giant balloon? If you said a volcano, you’re spot on, now run!!!!! Scientists have been scratching their heads trying to work out why the area below and around Uturuncu is rising so fast. From current calculations the magma beneath the volcano is growing at about 27 cubic feet per second which is 10 times faster than normal magma growth. Oh by the way did I happen to mention the Uturuncu volcano is surrounded by a series of dormant supervolcanoes, which means if for some chance one of them erupts it will make Mount St Helens look like a burst pimple. Modern civilization has never witnessed a supervolcanoes fury and scientists are just praying that Uturuncu isn’t forming into one because that would give Mayan believers cause for celebrations!

Want sauce with that?

Butch Cassidy Was a Machinist from Spokane

Hands up who friggin cares if Butch Cassidy survived the 1908 shootout in Bolivia and actually returned to the US to live out his final years? Hmm, thought so! Anywho, a Utah book collector does and he believes  that William T Phillips, a machinist from Spokane, was in fact Butch! Seriously! If you give two hoots you can read the rest of the story here otherwise carry on as you were!

Cassidy and Phillips

Have You Seen This Man?

OMG, somehow Bolivian police were able to track down a suspect in a murder investigation from what has been described as the worst friggin photo fit in the world. After a taxi driver was murdered a witness drew a picture of what she believed the suspect look liked. The childlike drawing drew snickers from the public who many described as looking like the scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. The image was even broadcast on the Bolivian news making it an instant YouTube hit. Despite it’s simplicity police claim it has helped them catch a suspect. But in yet another bizarre twist, the Bolivian law, which doesn’t allow suspects to be identified, blocked it with….you guessed it…that friggin photo-fit.

Recognise him?
