Downtown Boston is where you learn to drive with no farks given.  If you can brake it there, you can brake it anywhere.

I doubt it, Boston combines 7 signs at a rotary with constant construction and detour signs. For my 40 years of driving.

Yay that means I'm as destructive as a volcano.
Ha, and they used to say I was only as bad as a bull in a China shop

OK, so this is an interesting article if you can find the salient bits within.

Results showed that warming and ocean acidification associated with the immense volcanic CO2 injection to the atmosphere was already fatal and led to the extinction of marine calcifying organisms right at the onset of the extinction. However, the CO2 release also brought further consequences; with increased global temperatures caused by the greenhouse effect, chemical weathering on land also increased.
Over thousands of years, increasing amounts of nutrients reached the oceans via rivers and coasts, which then became over-fertilized. The result was a large-scale oxygen depletion and the alteration of entire elemental cycles. "This domino-like collapse of the inter-connected life-sustaining cycles and processes ultimately led to the observed catastrophic extent of mass extinction at the Permian-Triassic boundary,"

This is probably what happened to planet Spaceball's air as well.

Also, CSB I learned to drive in Maine, went to college in MA. Going home I was like a madman behind the wheel until I figured out that I could dial it back to semi-rural driving again. Sorry everyone.

I also have to add that this is one of the prettiest fossils I've ever seen. I'd like to see it fully exposed from the surrounding rock, and I'd pay to have it done, too.

Be careful, you might get a closer look than you bargained for....

I've lived in DC, Jersey, SoCal and Chicago and vehemently agree with you.

One question. If we manage to add a catastrophic amount of CO2 to the air, will some other species 300 million years from now call it volcanic?

So it looks like Alien's H.R. Giger "borrowed" from the fossil record:

Just like John Williams borrowed from "a" fossil record:
