Tell you what, in keeping with Gray Coyote's thinking, I'll let you have Kilauea instead, in the high rent district. Then we might even convince someone from 'Reno 911' to charge you with 'aggregated vesicular basalt'.

It's a life sentence breaking up the big rocks into small ones.

Shame on you, Simon! You should be gneiss to Rhino. He's not full of schist. Granite he doesnt have a Fourney bone, but igneous is bliss...

A volcano is just an average mountain with hiccups. Surely you can do better than THAT!. :mrgreen: Maybe a meltdown at San Onofre? A suitcase nuke at the Reno Airport? Ebola at the Human Carcass Wash? :mrgreen:

Actually, unjon, I have five or six different types of hard hats, being the safety promoter that I am.

First off, there's the standard MSA-approved polyethylene hard hat. It's a general use hard hat It stops or deflects most debris. This is the standard issue, and mine is lime green since I'm involved with highway work (that's the new color these days)

Second, there's the brimless hard hat for people involved with mast control on a rig. You gotta see up to see any potential problems falling down rapidly your way.

Next, there's the hat that takes a light on a clip and is attached to a rechargeable 12V battery. Standard mine safety wear. You wear it (AND your self-rescuer) any time you go underground.

The cowboy hard hat is MSA-approved and is miore a fashion statement than it is protection in my opinion.

Finally, a wide brimmed STEEL hard hat. You wear that one anywhere around gas flares, or firefighting.

I am a man of many hats both hard and soft.

EPA and the Corps are more or less rendered ineffectual by the exceptions to the CWA that the Department of Agriculture has.

This nut job is acting like taxpayers are stupid to pay for waste water treatment. He wants to do away with it wholesale. We don't need more republifucks saying this out loud. I realize a lot of politicians don't give a fuck about shit, and they've done everything they can to make the CWA a nice wall hanging, but to be outright hostile to treatment is scary. Maybe all his bluster will get some attention on enforcement of fed standards. I just hope the idea doesn't catch on or we could be looking forward to a pandemic. I wonder what Ottawa has to say about this development.

We'll hold you to that as a further measure of your credibility.

I still say no chance. Look at http://www.usgs.gov, and you might learn something about real hazards. And the DATA that backs up predictions. Anything else than that, you're just blowing hot air and wasting the oxygen supply.

Stories like this make me thankful I don't have any children whose future I have to worry about...

CBS News:

The apocalypse has a new date: 2048.

That's when the world's oceans will be empty of fish, predicts an international team of ecologists and economists. The cause: the disappearance of species due to overfishing, pollution, habitat loss, and climate change.

The study by Boris Worm, PhD, of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, -- with colleagues in the U.K., U.S., Sweden, and Panama -- was an effort to understand what this loss of ocean species might mean to the world.

...

"This isn't predicted to happen. This is happening now," study researcher Nicola Beaumont, PhD, of the Plymouth Marine Laboratory, U.K., says in a news release.

Remind me to be dead by then. I don't eat fish myself, but I do not want to live through widespread famine.

Wait, I am a fish, and therefore will be dead.
Good.
