Bah, real nerds pick up the phone and shout bits into the microphone and then wait for the response!
That looks just like an enormous... WANG, pay attention!
Unless you consider the astronaut's hopping footsteps to be repeated controlled landings until the last few steps when the left the surface...
BLEVEs usually occur when a pressurized container is heated (usually by fire). The LNG may stay liquid at cold temperatures and atmospheric pressure, but if the container is heated, it will pressurize and boil and can cause a BLEVE just as LPG would. Water can cause a BLEVE if heated sufficiently. Also heating has the double whammy of boiling the liquid and weakening the steel, both making BLEVEs due to fire more likely.
You are correct, it likely wouldn't go off like a bomb or a fertilizer plant since there is no oxidizer for it. You wouldn't likely get one big rupture anyway, just a leak that would spew out high pressure natural gas which would rise pretty quickly. With an ignition source you'd probably end up with a very nice flare that would slowly enlarge the hole until either a BLEVE or the vessel ran out of fuel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiling_liquid_expanding_vapor_explosion
I will admit, due to the lightness of natural gas, the flare would go upward and make a BLEVE unlikely, but it is still a risk depending on the configuration of the vessel and the location of the flare. Even if the natural gas doesn't all burn, the expansion of the boiling liquefied gas is enough to destroy the whole vessel and probably eject the material miles away.
Ok so Hawaii has one... What about Alaska? Oh wait, aside from a few sections of controlled access highway (in Anchorage, Wasilla, and Fairbanks), Alaska is expresswayless. Technically the roads are still funded through the interstate system, but they aren't exactly highways. From Wikipedia:
Currently, all Interstates in Alaska are unsigned  and are not generally referred to by their highway numbers. In fact most Alaskans are unaware of those numbers.
Most of the lengths of the Interstates in Alaska are not constructed to Interstate Highway standards, but are small, rural, two-lane, undivided highways. Title 23 provides that "Highways on the Interstate System in Alaska and Puerto Rico shall be designed in accordance with such geometric and construction standards as are adequate for current and probable future traffic demands and the needs of the locality of the highway."

More for the life in the air and on land than the stuff in the water. A spill of LNG would boil pretty rapidly and gas off primarily methane into the atmosphere. Methane is lighter than air, so it would quickly rise and lead to an increase in the greenhouse effect until broken down. GLOBAL WARMING ALARM!!!
Unless there is an ignition source... In that case, BOOM!
The libertarian ideal is "move everything to the individual level" but failing at that we attempt to get it to the local level, and failing at that, the state level. Basically the smaller number of constituents to politician ratio, the more power the individual has.
Changes in CO2 concentration were also too small to detect in early history too. Are you saying that because it's too small to measure that it's insignificant?
Yep, that's the real attitude that sparks debate. The science is settled. Sit down and eat it you deniers you!
Point number 0) in your list should be: The amount of light coming from the sun is not constant and cannot be predicted nor affected. Disagree? Please explain and show your work.
There are many rewards for feeding the starving poor. Norman Borlaug is probably the biggest winner in that respect. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_Borlaug
Monsanto catches a lot of crap nowadays, but is greatly interested in increasing agricultural production. Sadly most of the gains we've made recently in increasing crop production have gone to stupid things like ethanol production which would go away under capitalist circumstances, but I digress.
I think he's trying to say that Fox News is one of the very few conservative biased news sources whereas the liberal biased media sources are so common the average viewership of each individual station is less than Fox News on the whole. Which isn't really supporting any actual argument at all, merely pointing out that a population spread into more groups generally causes smaller groups.
Capitalism rewards giving people what they want. Hard work has nothing to do with it, nor luck or cunning. Marketing can affect what people want, but at the end of the day you make money by exchanging goods and services with people. If nobody wants it, you aren't going to make money. Please note that what people say they want is not necessarily what they actually want.
Right, you have to fire people in the public sector to allow the private sector to grow.
