I am advocating that May 22nd be declared International Point-and-Laugh Day. Not just for this year, but forever to remind folks of all the apocalypses that never happened because the world doesn't work that way.

-- Steve won't labour too hard against gullibility, though; he's learned Canute's lesson, much to his embitterment.

I could get behind that.

I read that one of this guy's followers is a young woman who'd planned on becoming a doctor, but instead gave it all up so she could go travel the road with him.

This makes me happy. I do not want someone that gullible being a doctor.

But the geothermal earthquakes are a feature! All we have to do is upgrade the building codes along the entire West Coast, sink geothermal wells along the fault lines, and change the pattern of quakes from rare-but-devastating to frequent-and-small and get low-carbon power.
