Didn't see this one coming, but we got some visitors from Macedonia for the first time in the past week. Macedonia, of course, was part of Yugoslavia but became independent when the shit hit the fan there in 1991. It is landlocked, bordered by Kosovo to the northwest, Serbia to the north, Bulgaria to the east, Greece to the south and Albania to the west. The capital is Skopje, which in 2002 had a population of 506,926.
Far more relevant for me, of course, is that Macedonia is the homeland of Alexander the Great, who conquered the entire known world when he was like, 12 or something. Really young. he died at 32, having conquered essentially the entire known world. Dude was a military genius. So thanks to the folks from Macedonia dropping by, even if it was a spam bot seeking porn (I don't know that it was, but still, we would welcome them all the same).
