Has the world yet solved the problem of how the hell to even say "Eyjafjallajokull" without burping?

The volcano probably set up the whole oil spill thing to keep us distracted.

Evil genius.

And yet no mention of Nashville being underwater. If it was a poor minority area of the country as bad off as Nashville, I am sure there would be some coverage. But, that is just the straw man in me talking.

Weird that you'd think there was no coverage... I was watching tv today and it was pretty much an even split between oil spill/times square jagoff/nashville... they even talked to lame-ass musicians about how their equipment was destroyed in the flooding.

Also, people are drowning in Tennessee. But as I read elsewhere, it's not "terror-sexy" like the failed car bomb in NYC or "eco-sexy" like the oil spill, or even "hot lava and ash-sexy" like the volcano, so people pay it no mind.

How much do you want to bet that Christians panicking about the coming of Armageddon will do more damage than all the natural disasters combined?

One sixth (^) of Nashville's population is African-American. Sounds like a "minority area" to me. Or did the flooding only take out the white neighborhoods?

Ah crap, read the wrong page. Those numbers shouldn't have made sense, but it's late and I'm running out of caffeine.

Here's (^) the correct page. And I think my point still stands, unless the flooding did somehow only take out white neighborhoods.

USA to England next week-a delay from the last blow-up. Why do I get the feeling I'm not going...again?

What oil spill?

If the ash lands on the oil it will pave the ocean. Then we can drive to the Caribbean!

What if the oil slick migrates all the way to Iceland and the "magma" ignites the oil slick. It could be the greatest AW of all time.

There you are, in all your hot pink glory!

Don't worry about the oil - somebody was gettin' freaky out in the Gulf and, after exploding, knocked over a really big bottle of Astroglide

Bubblegum Tate: The Year Without a Summer (new window)


Um, did you read the article? There were numerous factors that led to the Year Without a Summer, not just one volcano. Several volcanoes erupted at the level of our Iceland friend. Plus the main eruption of Tambora made this one look positively tiny by comparison. And solar activity was unusually low that year.

This may have an impact on weather, especially late this year and next year, but it won't be a worldwide catastrophe. So chill.

Things are definitely heating up... Hopefully all the evangelical assholes will be raptured away soon.

That's some "not sure if serious" trolling in the comments after the article.

THIS IS JUST AN OPINION!!!
God Doesn't Make Junk
I'm quite sure the Earth can take care of it's self if we would just fix what we have done. Volcanoes are suppose to erupt to put ASH back into the Atmosphere so the Earth can cool when it needs to. It is a living thing because it really propected it'self erupting the volcanoe in Iceland and then turned toward it's Enimy and left a WARNING cloud of ASH right over top of it. It's suppose to do that in simutanius places around the Earth where volcanoes are located but we caped them around the US. So we could rob them of the GEMS,DIAMONDS, GOLD, SILVER, COAL, COPPER, ALL PRECIOUS METALS, ARTIFACTS and BASIC MINERALS, they made with their BRIMSTONE. And we caped the volcanoes to send the oil to other places threw the oil vain located under the volcanoes.For money the root of ALL EVIL. We also put a bunch of housing around them. So TAX PAYERS could pay for the mining of the volcanoes. Where did all this money go . Housing is losing money? If NIBIRU is coming for us then maybe we should try and help our planet fight back. By building our Atmosphere which propects us. And stop robbing the Earth of it's minerals put them back. Let the volcanoes erupt around the world. Help Protect The Gift GOD Gave Us.
