Somehow I Knew Col. Sanders Was Mixed Up in This...

Rachel, NV.

In the deserts of Nevada you'll find the small little town of Rachel, NV.  It is best known as the jumping off point for exploration around Area 51 and is home to the Little A'Le'Inn.  It is also home, mysteriously, to a giant-assed painting/mural of Col Sanders.  Why?  Is the Col part of some great alien-fried chicken mystery?  Was one of the secret ingredients from another world or even possibly alien meat? Nope, apparently it's an advertising stunt.  KFC wanted to have the first ad visible from space, and they apparently got it. You can read more about the ad here.  And you can look up the Col yourself on Google Maps by clicking here.

Unusual and Wacky Hotels

Wow, we're in desperate need of posting around here, so we'll make an "easy" post by linking to a list of some of the world's most unusual hotels.  I particularly love the cave hotel in Turkey and the most odd to me, for some reason, is the Capsule Hotel in Japan. Why does it remind me of the Seinfeld episode where Kramer kept some visitors from Japan in his large oversized dresser drawers?
