I was talking with one of my sisters the other day...

...and we were discussing how no matter how old you get, some things will always elicit giggles.
Things like Uranus. Things like "penal colony." Things like blue-footed boobies. Things like the grand champion of things that will always be funny, Lake Titicaca.

And then I happened to be reading about what the ISS got photos of today.
And then I died.
Seriously, the placenames are silly enough. But...
(Or maybe we're just 12.)

Lake Poopo, Bolivia (Lake Poopo is a small lake near the southern end of a long, elevated basin in the Bolivian Andes known as the Altiplano. The Altiplano extends from the relatively moist region of Lake Titicaca south-southeastward to the large, bright playa of Salar de Uyuni. Poopo is subject to significant changes in size and color related to the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) cycle. The ISS pass was in mid-morning and expected to be clear.
