Those who know me have often heard me use the phrase, Same Planet Different World. It basically means that even though we share the same phyiscal place in the universe our ways of thinking are no where near the same. There are TV shows where people travel the world to eat fish eyes and scorpion tongue, shows like that really illustrate the point I'm trying to make. My theory also gets helped out a lot by that nut job that runs North Korea and now  President Kurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, whose name would be worth a million dollars on Wheel of Fortune by the way. The Turkmen leader wants his nation to have a beauty pagent, not for its lovely ladies but for its horses!

President Kurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, who enjoys sweeping powers in this desert nation of 5 million and is known for his deft horsemanship, said national beauty contests for the ancient Akhal Teke breed should be held every April.

So do you think you have a pretty little filly at your place? This might be the opportunity you have been looking for to showcase her stuff! Okay it's a strange story but what the heck it takes all kinds to make a world, even if we do have to share the same planet.
