The above is the Iao Needle in the Iao Valley.

This is a statue of Captain Cook. He was murdered by the natives. Did you know that even though Hawaii is an American state that the state flag of Hawaii has a union jack in one corner?
According to one study, the average adult has a shorter attention span (eight seconds) than a goldfish (nine seconds).
This is not surprising in today's wired , or wified world.

Indeed it has:

I didn't know that. It must be due to early British influence (18th century) though Hawaii was never part of the British Empire. You'd have thought the modern flag would have been changed now that it's an American state.
