It Makes Me Feel Good

...To know that there are 10 to 100 cargo ships out there proudly flying the flag of Outer Mongolia. And of Switzerland. It just appeals to me.

The Republic of Turonistan, while land-locked, boasts the world's seventh-largest registry of ocean-going commercial passenger vessels.

This is according to the authoritative reference, "Jane's Flags of Convenience of the World".

-10 refers to less than 10. Less than 10 includes 0. Also it may include less that 0 if they sail any where near Somalia.

The Swiss won America's Cup. The yacht race, you know. The winner hosts the next race. Unless they do laps around Lake Zurich NASCAR style, I don't know how they're going to pull this off.

The Swiss. Great maritime country, whoda thunk? Well, Jamaica had a bobsled team, so hey.
