Did you know that there's a blood red waterfall in Antarctica?
Or that in northern Canada there's a lake full of frozen bubbles? (Ironically, the bubbles are highly flammable)
"Hidden Beach" is its name, though it is also known as "Playa del Amor": Beach of Love.
By random chance, a series of unlikely coincidences (like the fact that after two million years, the water of a hyper-salinated lake that was trapped under a glacier has managed to escape through a fissure and oxidize as soon as it hits the air) have conspired to give us something unusual and fascinating.
There is a line in the deliciously ironic Wes Anderson film "The Royal Tanenbaums" that my husband and I love to quote. It's not central to the plot but it perfectly conveys the personality of one of the characters, Raleigh St. Clair (played by Bill Murray), a famous neurologist. When his teenage test subject spectacularly fails to replicate an arrangement of blocks, Raleigh gleefully chuckles and exclaims "How interesting. How bizarre!"
The answer to the Fraser Simpson clue is pretty straightforward. To "run up" is to incur, and "IOUs" are debts. But what really baked my noodle was the definition that Fraser Simpson supplied to the word "incurious": without interest. Do you see what I mean? A word that means "to have no interest" can be broken down into two words -- INCUR+IOUS -- which more or less means "to have interest".
Besides, who could contain their excitement at a discovery like this one? A naturally occurring language paradox sitting right there in plain sight.
How interesting. How bizarre!
