Lions And Tigers And Downtown, Oh My!

The government of Southern Sudan has announced plans to remake its capital cities into the shapes found on their state flags, so from the air they’ll look like a giraffe,¬†rhino, and even a pineapple. They’re talking to investors hoping to convince them to kick in the $10 billion it will cost, not a small amount when you realize the government’s 2010 budget was only $1.9 billion and more than 90 percent of Southern Sudan’s population lives on less than $1 a day. While officials think the idea shows they’re using their brains,¬†many think it’s actually more like the other end of the animals that will be represented.
