Philippines Tourism Bureau Says, "Our Bad."

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

I am not sure I want to ever visit the Philippines. It looks beautiful, and all the Filipino-Americans I know (all…two of them) are pretty decent people.

Written by Musashi on . Posted in WTF

Biologists have located a species of monitor lizard on Luzon in the Philippines. Dubbed ‘Varanus bitatawa’, the critter sports gold spots and is apparently a vegetarian.
