It's a rare earthquake that gives you any warning! Every single one I have ever been in was just suddenly happening, and by the time I realized what it was, it was all over.

Ron Holzwarth 6 years, 11 months ago

A massive meteor strike. But, maybe that wouldn't be a bad way to go, because I would have no idea what had happened.

In that case I hope that every single day is like reliving the worst imaginable natural disaster (imagination is key because it's all in your conservitarded heads).

Better take some precautions with some tin foil hats because he's going to be president until 2016. Enjoy!

Unless the Republicans come up with a viable candidate pretty quick, I'm afraid you're going to be right.

Natural Light. Have you tasted that cat pi$$? Just shoot me . . .

Woke up suddenly this morning dreaming it was raining golf balls. Oh, sure, I'm covered, but with my insurance it costs me $494 more per year for the same coverage as . . . .

As it turns out, the sun will not explode. It takes a star four times as massive as the sun to eventually go supernova. It's comforting to know in 6 billion years the sun will simply fizzle out like a cheap sparkler instead of expanding to the orbit of Uranus and turning the earth into a giant toasted marshmallow.

At least that is this weeks current scientific theory . . . I'm going with it.

How you holding up Casey? Have you decided how to get back at Whitney for leaving you with this bunch? I suggest four or five sparrows in the top drawer of her desk. And keep a camera close by. The reaction when she opens that drawer will be priceless . . .

"Exercise science major" Merrill will be on here pasting articles on the benefits of excerising in the nude, maybe even a picture or two.

The one where the giant dino-lizard climbs out of a thawing iceberg and breathes fire on the city.

Hoards of Killer Bees and Fire Ants would be bad.

Nobody likes a smartass, nobody . . . but it depends if you are smarter than all, or just some. At times you only have to be smarter than those that berate you.

Billy Redden, the banjo pickin' kid in "Deliverance" is now 55 years old and is cook, dishwasher and part owner of the Cookie Jar Cafe in Clayton, Georgia. He did not know how to play the banjo when he appeared in Deliverance. He does now.

I survived Hurricane Camille in 1969 at Keesler AFB, Biloxi, MS. Survived 2 Typhoons on Okinawa in '70. Blizzards in Idaho and here, massive duststorms in Nevada and Calif. Fallout from the Mt. St. Helens eruptions in Idaho. (shoveling ash from the yard). Brush fires in Idaho and So. Cal. Several earthquakes in So. Cal. When we moved here from San Diego five years ago, the tornado watches terrified me. Now I have thunderstorms tornadoes under control. guess it's got to be asteroid strikes, next. CCG!
