帆船石
Taiwan

由社頂公園沿新開闢之道路南下約4公里,在海岸珊瑚礁前緣,可見到一巨石矗立於海中,遠望似艘即將啟碇的帆船,因而得名,近看則像美國前總統尼克森的頭部令人發笑。 船帆石高約18公尺,係由附近台地上方滾落至海邊的舊期珊瑚礁石,因其岩質較附近之初期隆起珊瑚礁堅硬,故能長期屹立海中,由台地上方可見到它巨大的珊瑚礁岩即為明證。 船帆石四週已規劃為國民旅館、停車場、野外育樂用地等,鄰近的香蕉灣昔為捕鯨基地和鯨魚處理廠,目前已無任何設施遺留。可見由於人類無盡的貪婪,使得鯨魚在臺灣南部幾近絕跡,再也不能偶見鯨魚噴水的奇景了。

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
