Travel tips -- heh, heh, heh

File this under Duh: some airline brain figured out they can load a plane faster by boarding window seats first. Good deal but with predictable consequences. Those passengers take up all the overhead luggage space.

Looking for an unspoiled vacation backwater? Think Culebra. The hour-long ferry ride from Puerto Rico will set you back $2.25 (this is not a typo). Laid back? A sign on a vendor’s cart reads: “Open Some Days/Closed Others.” Take me there.

Mark your calendar for the first Friday of every March. That’s high season for witchcraft and magic in Catemaco, Mexico. Officially, the International Congress of Witches. No, the festival did not form the basis for the movie, “First Wives Club.” Settle down.

Ohmygod! Two guys out in Hawaii think misguided scientists are on the verge of unleashing DefCon Five, Doomsday, Black Friday and Halloween all at once.

Their lawsuit claims scientists at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) are “ready to produce, among other horrors, a tiny black hole, which they say could eat the Earth. Or it could spit out something called a ‘strangelet’ that would convert our planet to a shrunken dense dead lump of something called ‘strange matter.’

Run! Where?
