The world's worst airport


And the winner is... Juba International Airport (JUB) in South Sudan.

Caption for graphic above: "As photography has been banned in South Sudan, we present you with an artist's rendering to show you the current state of Juba Airport."

From Sleeping in Airports:



Sleeping in Airports' list is 20 airports long: read the reviews and rejoice in the fact that you're not in any of them right now.

Unless you are....

Above, the contents of an email I got from YouTube on Tuesday.

Long story short: As of February 20, they're stopping monetization of my videos.

Reason: as of that date, channels like mine must have at least 1,000 subscribers and at 532, I fall far short.

On the brighter side, I make about $5/month from YouTube so it's not as if I won't be able to buy food for Gray Cat.

You screw them into the bottom of your running or hiking shoes or boots.


Bonus: removable.

From the manufacturer: "The recommended installation pattern is 12 spikes/shoe — 3 on each side of the forefoot and 3 on each side of the heel. Depending on size of shoe or type of foot strike, users can customize installation for best traction."

Might be worth a flutter to try them out with some old unused shoes.

Here's an really in-depth review comparing them to plain old sheet metal screws.


Set of 32: $19.99.
