Little Hawaii facts (paca)

1. There do not appear to be squirrels in Hawaii. Mongooses, yes.

2. It's rare to be able to go faster than 30 mph on a Hawaii road due to traffic. And yet you can rent a Ferrarri if you like. Somehow, though, saying, "I can clock 0 - 30 in 2.6 seconds," just doesn't have a ring to it.

3. The Hawaiian islands actually stretch all the way from Hawaii to Midway. The newest island is already forming to the east, south-east of Hawaii. It will be a few hundred thousand years, however, before it emerges from the ocean.
