Still, there's a limit to how close to an active volcano people are willing to live, so the really hot zone (in both senses) would not be as direct a threat to people or livestock.

Tell that the millions in Mexico City, right under the "Popo" volcano or Seattle, not far from Mt Rainier.. If/when those blow, those cities are in deep kimchi... Of course, those pale in comparison to the Yellowstone caldera.. if THAT one blows, at least the western part of the USA has a BIG problem....

I love KDE, running it on all of my Linux systems, but WHO THE HELL comes up with these names? Nepomunk?? Baloo?? Silly names.. One thing: I see a PPA for Plasma 5 for KUbuntu.. umm.. how about for those of us who gave up Ubuntu and moved to the "mothership", namely Debian?? Would like to try Plasma 5 on my Debian Jessy laptop... but sure don't want to hoze up the current Plasma 4 install....

A lot of bank are now asking you questions when you withdraw a larger amount of $$$. They claim its the gummint making them... IF for some reason, I still did business with banks, my reasons would be "Nunya Bidness"... Thankfully, all of my accounts are (and have been for years) in a local credit union... Banks can kiss my a$$....

that the Feds have an honest to god propaganda news agency working INSIDE THE US

Yeah.. there sure is.. Its what *was* the "4th Estate", then later, the "Mainstream Media"... It's now become the "US Department of Propaganda".. Herr Goebles, Hitler's propaganda minister would have been soooo proud at how far America has come to towards what Der Fuerer was working for....

The U.S. will always be at war now, until the government is bankrupt. Should have listened to Eisenhower.

Umm.. hate to break it to you, but the U.S. government *IS* bankrupt.. The world just hasn't called us on it yet.. If you don't call 17+ TRILLION DOLLARS in the hole, and not to mention an uncountable number of trillions in unfunded "entitlements" bankrupt, I don't know what to tell you... And yes, we certainly *should* have listened to Eisenhower, the last somewhat honest president.... I'm not a (R) and I'm DAMN straight NOT a (D), I'm a FUCKIN' AMERICAN, AND I'M PISSED!!!

Yeah.. but the shuttle had the gummint butting in.. all of CONgress making sure their home turf got a piece of the shuttle "pie".... In the case of SpaceX, its Musk and his stockholders.. and I'm not even sure how many "stockholders" SpaceX has, as I'm pretty sure its not a publicly traded company.... If ANYbody can do what he claims to be planning, I bet Musk can...

Yeah.. THIS!! I'm an Independent voter in Nevada, up until the middle of BushyJr's second term I was a life-long Republican.. The Republican party has gotten so FAR from its roots, I couldn't remain a "member"... Since I am no longer a Republican, I'm prohibited from voting for ANY candidate in our primary yesterday other than the non-partisan races, like Judge, Sheriff, etc.. This is a crock of SHIT, so I now do not vote in primary elections.. There were several Republican candidates for state and national office that I'd loved to have voted for, but the State of Nevada has seen fit to prohibit me from voting for them, unless I attach a label to my name.. I'M NOT A REPUBLICAN NOR A DEMOCRAT, I'M AN AMERICAN....
