Re: salar de uyuni: I want to go!

It seems like it would be an incredibly cool place to go see.
I remember some guy telling me about when he went, and he had the genius idea of walking out on it barefoot. Of course since he was walking on salt crystals it hurt like hell.

I know I have a bunch of good ones, but there's only one that I can remember off the top of my head right now. My Comp Sci teacher said this at the beginning of class a couple moths ago. "Ok, guys. I'm an idiot! I want you to forget everything I've ever taught you!"

BBC started their take on Robin Hood last year with a 13 episode season, which I loved. I've always been a big fan of Robin Hood in general. Then a few days ago I realized that they were 10 episodes into the second season and started watching again.

Who else is a fan?
