From the dank smatterings of the Wiki-Void:

ABSURDISTAN

“Absurdistan is a term sometimes used to satirically describe a country in which absurdity is the norm, especially in its public authorities and government. The expression was originally used by Eastern bloc dissidents to refer to parts (or all) of the Soviet Union and its satellite states. Today, the term is most often reserved for Russia and states formerly in the Soviet sphere of influence which have retained Soviet-style authoritarian governments, such as Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, or Belarus.”

CHAMPAWAT TIGER

“The Champawat Tiger was a female Bengal Tiger shot in 1911 by Jim Corbett. She was allegedly responsible for 436 documented deaths in Nepal and the Kumaon area of India mostly during the 19th century.

“After having killed over 200 people in Nepal she was driven by the Nepalese Army across the border into India, where she continued her activities in the Kumaon District. She was so bold that she roamed the roads outside villages, roaring and terrorizing the villagers and often trying to break into huts.”

DAVID ICKE

Alex Jones, despite having previously expressed concerns over Icke’s theories, now says he agrees with 99% of what Icke says and has David Icke as a frequent guest on his show.”

HELL’S CANYON

“Hells Canyon is a ten-mile wide canyon located along the border of eastern Oregon and western Idaho in the United States. It is North America’s deepest river gorge at 7,993 feet (2436 m) and the most important feature of Hells Canyon National Recreation Area.

“The canyon was carved by the waters of the Snake River, which plunges more than a mile below the canyon’s west rim on the Oregon side and 8,000 feet below the peaks of Idaho’s Seven Devils Mountains range to the east. Most of the area is inaccessible by road.”

HUMAN ECHOLOCATION

“This ability is used by some blind people to navigate within their environment. They actively create sounds, such as by tapping their canes, lightly stomping their foot or by making clicking noises with their mouths. It can however also be fed in to the human nervous system as a new sensory experience. Human echolocation is similar in principle to active sonar and to the animal echolocation employed by some animals, including bats and dolphins.

“By interpreting the sound waves reflected by nearby objects, a person trained to navigate by echolocation can accurately identify the location and sometimes size of nearby objects and not only use this information to steer around obstacles and travel from place to place, but also detect small movements relative to objects.”
