High Adventure

Today’s BBC is running a promo of forthcoming documentary titled, Top Dogs: Adventures in War, Sea and Ice.

The setup: A foreign correspondent, a yachtsman, and an adventurer travel through war-torn Afghanistan, sail around Cape Horn, and trudge deep into the Arctic Circle–each man in his element during one journey and dangerously out of it during the other two. It was Afghanistan, though, that required all three men to go through a “Hostile Environment” training course, which entailed, among other challenges, staged kidnappings. And then there’s this nugget:

Difficult, certainly, sometimes dangerous and often daunting, but always enjoyable. Even when we heard that the Taleban was organising an ambush for us on our way back from the Tora Bora Caves.

Also from the BBC, the weirdest headline you’ll see all day.
