    Great, another stupid person chimes in. Stupid people would be much more tolerable if they could only spell and punctuate their drivel!

      Because people are ignorant and irrational, not to mention uneducated and simply want to get a rise out of others; and not the good rise at that...

    It's incredible how little some people know about Peru and other countries and cultures. This Country seriously needs to invest in a better school education. One that includes geography and cultural studies as part of its curriculum. No wonder there are so many ignorant and intolerant people around. What a shame.

    hilarious thread.

    True about thermal swing – just look at the devistating effects on buildings: spall. Not so bad here in Hawaii. We just have that darn volcano that shakes us around occationally.
