    Anyone who takes a job in Afghanistan or Iraq needs to factor in getting killed, maimed or abducted.

    I heard this place got shutdown shortly after the abduction. Don't think we'll hear much about it anymore.

    It's no accident that despite all my time in the Caribbean I've never gone to Trinidad.

    Somebody has to do it. I have in the past applied for jobs in both of those countries.
    True story. One evening in the Arctic I was waiting for my connection flight. The faces of the passengers who have just arrived looked like they have just seen a ghost. The fuselage under the belly of the plane was ripped off in flight. Within minutes in the cold dark night, I was on the plane trying to get home. Dangerous is relative. The mind and body adjust to make the situation normal. I can tell you stories of walking in - 60 degrees in zero visiblility, wind gusting up to 80km/HR a bad move is a certain harsh death.
