Re: Numbies

Very intersting Numbies awards.

One cannot but feel concerned for the safety of the "Chief of fools" Chris Turney.
In interview scenes in his office we see that part of his equipment for this expedition is apparently a "Solar Topee".
Still, at least it did not have corks on strings hanging from the brim.

But somehow I find this a rather curious item as it is so often associated with the old colonial British and not something one would naturally associate with an new age "scientist"/Australian "explorer/adventurer"........
