National Monument Theft

One of my favorite places in the world is White Sands National Monument. It is one of the few places I've been which I find to be stunningly beautiful.

Here's a fascinating fact:

Some of the more active sand dunes in the park are moving in a northeasterly direction at up to 30 feet per year.

Do you know what this shocking statistic means? Well, I'll tell you ...

The distance from White Sands National Monument to the Canadian border (in a general Northeastern direction) is approximately 1900 miles.

1 mile = 5280 feet so ...

1900 x 5280 = 10032000 feet

10032000 feet divided by 30 feet per year = 334400 years

WHICH MEANS (are you ready for this?):

In the year 336, 408 AD, White Sands National Monument will become the White Sands Canadian National Monument!

Thieving bitches. Give us back our monument!!

  1. Frankly, if we can get Canada to take the Dakotas and maybe Wyoming as well, it'll be worth it.

    Now, what can we use to bribe Mexico to take Texas?

  3. I don't think there's any bribe large enough we could give Mexico to take Texas.

  4. The reason why you think that White Sands is so stunning is because it is in the most spectacular state of the nation. It's a state that also produces astoundingly desirable men.

  5. And I thought that you were sad that Canada stole me.

    Another thought: I think Canada is in need for some white sands.. enough with the white snow already!
