tetsoushima: dj_spanmaster: jxb465: JohnAnnArbor: FrancoFile: What mall is that in?

Any mall, I think you'll find.

Every.
Single.
One.

Taunting you with carbohydrate taste goodness and diabetes-inducing glazing.

Nope, not one of the three malls in my area has one.

/They are lame malls.

They're only in the east half of PA; and at that, only one in Scranton, all the rest in the southeast.

Sounds like you guys are hanging out at The Dirt Mall.  Say, would you like a chocolate-covered pretzel?


Ha! No. Thank god, no. I live in Tallahassee; it's all Google-fu.

I've never understood why an eruption is described as an "explosion." Or why nuclear weapons tests are compared to eruptions in terms of energy released.

Good question.

Volcanic eruptions are just magma geysers of varying viscosity.

They don't normally release their entire eruption power in a single supersonic shockwave like a bomb.  I think reporters get excited when they see giant eruption clouds and blown-down forests, and don't consider the mechanisms by which these things actually happen.

I'm an attractive male in a relationship for a decade now, but I can probably get a weekend pass.  I'll have to ask my boyfriend.

Get ready for a couple cooler-than-average summers.  This crap's going to be up in the stratosphere for a few years.

That's a cooler-than-average ash cloud, in that it resembles both Elvis Presley *and* Godzilla.

Isn't it an "explosion" in the same sense that toothpaste "explodes" onto my toothbrush?  

Always thought an explosion was a really quick exothermic chemical reaction.  Not piping hot mag-ma (pinky to mouth) being squeezed through the crust.

Geologist farkers?


It is an ejaculation
