Some more good news

So much is going on in the world, I hardly know where to begin. Alternative medicine suppliers have had an unexpected nationwide-run on all types of iodine, in anticipation of radiation poisoning. The failure of Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuke took us totally by surprise and has freaked everyone out. This has been the unexpected catalyst of the sudden requests; we never expected it and didn't plan for it. For my part, I've been reminding everyone of how right I was in opposing nuclear power back in the wayward 70s, and loading up on nori. I figure it can't hurt.

And I've been talking to my customers, as always.

I guess you all know that the Left Behinders are out in force, what with wars and revolutions and rebellions all over the Mideast, as well as probable-meltdowns and the infamous year 2012 approaching. It's the end of the world as we know it.

Along these lines, I thought yall might like to see the First of the Four Horsemen, spotted in Egypt (on European television), whilst bored newsreaders jabbered on. I guess they didn't see it? (One wonders how anyone could miss video of the imminent apocalypse.)

Go to 1:25; they helpfully rerun it in slow-mo a few times, for your edification.

Now, see, if it hadn't been a WHITE horse, nobody would have noticed.

There are many explanations of this video, with copious details about glare and lens-reflection, etc... but of course, many people have their own explanations. And I get to hear all about it. But you know what?

I feel fine. :)

Okay, that's a bit freaky, lens flare or no lens flare.

I'm looking forward to hearing more on the idodine frenzy. Ughhh, and just when I was FINALLY about to make a rainbarrel this year! Damn!

I'm not running for iodine yet; I figure others who are actually closer to Japan need it more than I do. But mmm-mmm, nori...

I grew up on the idea of the Rapture. The longer I've been removed from it, the more I hate it. The very idea that God would sweep up His fan club, permitting them to point and laugh like Nelson Muntz, and leave everyone else to pick up the mess! How arrogant and sickening!

But the world was always about to end. It probably won't this time, either. So sorry to disappoint God's fan club once again...

Gah. That firehorse. It's like the Gas Station Ghost all over again.
As for rainbarrels, surely one could just wait a month or so for the half-life to do its thing?
