SCC Blog - Science Edition

Did you ever read something and think to yourself, "Hmm. I just saw something like this not to long ago." And then it slips your mind until something happens to bring it all back? We were reading this article about Vancouver Island moving 3 millimeters TOWARD Japan in the last few days. This is a complete reversal of its usual drift toward the east and could hint at a BIG earthquake in the coming months or years (up to 200 years). Or it could mean nothing. But the day before, we saw this article on CNN about a 100 square mile bulge rising almost an inch and a half a year in Oregon.

That's a pretty large movement of earth - and that triggered a memory of an article a few years ago about the Yellowstone Caldera in National Geographic Magazine. A quick search reveals this recent article about the last time the Yellowstone Caldera blew up. It left a crater 30 miles by 50 miles in the ground - that's about 7 times as big as the entire city of Chicago. Combined with the recent Pacific tsunami activity and such, hmmm.

How do you prepare for something like that? Maybe we shouldn't read as much as we do - we get nervous. But that's ok, we'll forget it tomorrow unless something else triggers another thought. Ignorance is bliss we suppose.

I'm sure if there is an earthquake under Yellowstone in the near future, somehow Pres. Bush caused it.

Nah... KARL ROVE will secretly have hardbody blowhard male whore 4 hire Jeff Gannon plant TNT in Old Yeller so Bushie can respond to the rocky mushroom cloud and look "Preznintdentural" again by nuking some middle east sand into glass in retaliation... (Rove is going to the pokey soon enough anyway so what's the traitor got to lose?)

Or maybe the drilling in the Alaska Natural Wildlife Reserve will be the thing that sets all this mayhem rolling- kinda like digging in yer belly-button too hard- everything is connected after all... ow... owww.. KA-BLOOEY!!! Fire in the HOLE!!!! ;-) We RED-LINED THIS SUCKER!!! Holy naked George Kennedy covered with leeches!!! IT'S NOT NICE TO FOOL MOTHER NATURE!

At least all these storms spinning furoiusly into the Gulf "pocket" are good for one thing: they've helped keep the Neo-Con-Creeps from starting that planned second or third war front in Iran or Syria to stop our poor soldiers from REALLY being spread as thin as one packet of jam on two Texas-sized pieces of toast! Maybe G-d's calling longtime bowling broadcaster Chris Schenkel back home is connected somehow- can the Lord have gotten into bowling big-time recently? (Carmine Salvino might want to get his affairs in order- sounds like Schenkel might need a color commentator!)

If there's any karma at all in life then this Hurricane Rita will blow away Dubya's ill-gotten WACO ranch along with the stumps, armadillahs and tumblin' tumbleweeds! Maybe then he will be able to relate to the little guy for once! Halliburton will then get paid big-time to import Saddam's Palace back to Waco so "W" can finally live like the Secret Sheik he really is!

Fuck him. He gets on here and acts the fool constantly. Took some time away from the gay rodeo to post did you O'Grady?

Hmmmm.... Bars close at 4 am. A bunch of goofy posts from O'Grady appear between 4-5 am under numerous threads under various names. You might want to do a little self inventory there.

Hey @nal @ttraction- WaZZup?!

Thanks for logging me again.
Sounds like you took care of my "self-inventory" all by yourself- thanks! I'd look in the mirror if I was you, my #1 fan! Do you get any kind of credit in the index for your endless stalking? I sure hope so... what a dreary waste of time otherwise!

And c'mon now- admittedly sleep is short with the early start these days- but even I don't dare go to work on only an hour's schlafen, silly troll. You must be projecting your predilection for spirits on me hon- I'm just not that into it! Those wacky pre-dawn posts were merely part of my pre-vocational morning constitutional, mein schtalking schmerz! I lovingly tapped out those posts out while on the crapper with my laptop- simulaneously squeezing out a few lumpy brown nuggets for you as well. (Though I'll never tell if I washed my hands after!)

Sorry I keep accidentally flushing- I'm sure you've been meaning to sneak in to do one of your surrepticious bung-loaf-analysis on my by-product... I'll remember to leave the tootsies for you next time, troll! A little sad that the turds are usually bigger (and apparently smarter) than you'll ever be- but you're cool with that now, right? All that hard-fought inner peace you repeatedly display in this venue... you're my zen-master-baiter, that's for sure!

So self-inventory was the key for you, huh?! Super- let me know if too many days go by without a post, and I'll "throw ya a sh*t" so you can do what you do best- inventory myself for me... (besides frightening the general public with your "brilliance"!)

Thinking of you infrequently (during flatulence and after I see you log my posts here...)

- Your SchAdEn-freude
