Bear in mind the Japanese earthquake was the fifth largest quake ever recorded. The Japanese are handling the situation, and I've seen quotes from people in Tokyo that the Western press coverage overstates the hysteria there. The fact is, there was no meltdown in spite of the seriousness of the event, and the Japanese are getting on with their lives ... Disneyland just reopened in Tokyo.

Any day now, the Yellowstone supervolcano could erupt or an asteroid could hit Wilmington or one of a thousand other disasters could occur. We all choose whether to live our lives in fear, or to take acceptable risks and move forward. For me, the nearness of a nuclear power plant is at the bottom of my list of things to consider when I move somewhere ... hurricanes on the coast would be a much more significant factor in considering Wilmington, along with job availability, cost of living, crime rate.

Very wise of you Vasily..... as a matter of fact, since you mention it, I am in the market for an asteroid warning system at this very moment, I'm not having much luck though, it doesn't google.

You are correct Ms Donym ..... the asteroid disgronifictors' functionality matters not at all, its' presence at the picnic was really just to comfort the lovely Laura and of course my main man Leeroy.

Besides, if NASA has not been able to accurately track incoming asteroids, what chance do we have, as amateurs, of workin' the %@*&% thing anyway...... I see its' true function as an oblisque at the center of the picnic with everyone just sitting around and staring at it in amazement and wonder..... much like the cavemen sat around looking at the very first campfire and throwing some freshly butchered Brontosaurus ribs on the fire just to see what might happen.

Well, you are correct once again, I believe the menu will have to include some ribs along with the sausages....... Bronto ribs may be tough to find though..... may just have to settle on some domestic porcine product.

BTW.... I would address you lovingly as "Suey".... but it reminds me of the hog calling contest I attended one time a few years back.
