Mimi's Nightly Open Thread

Where else could I post my complaints about you all ?

All I wanted to say is that if I were the God of the people, I would just assassinate everyone, who uses an abbreviation.

Abbreviations' usage should be outlawed and penalized with the death penalty.

Since we have a witch doctor among us, I have become a bitch nurse and a Hitler clone. That's how powerful our resident witch doctor is. I told you so. Beware of the witch doctors.

Be well, this site has become unreadable and/or unbearable to me. Sadly so. But as I am never a logically acting person, I read it and bear it bravely nevertheless.

Shit is always fertile and full of things that make us sick. Ask all of the resident physicians here. We all became sick.

Hope you heal all.

Abbreviated from your last line ; ).

I agree that it can be frustrating, but death-penalty worthy, IDTS (I don’t think so). Look at it this way, you can make up your own meaning which sometimes might even be better than the literal one.

Covid and climate catastrophizing will straighten me out. You know me best. I am going all exaggerating when stressed out.

Sorry.

Stressed out: Hawaiian volcanoes are heavy

I am. If you feel inclined to do so, read the article for yourself. It is just too much stress for me to try to summarize its content in my own words. Thanks.

Why not let nature deal with it as it does volcanically.

USGS Says Some U.S. Volcanoes at Risk of Erupting

The USGS has posted an Orange code and Watch alert for one volcano and a Yellow code and an Advisory alert for six volcanoes they’re tracking across the country; USGS says these volcanoes are “exhibiting signs of elevated unrest above known background level.” The volcano with the highest alert code is Great Sitkin in Alaska; just days ago, the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) raised its color and alert codes up to Orange and Watch. The six with the heightened level of alert of Yellow / Advisory include the world’s largest active volcano, Mauna Loa, and Kilauea, Gareloi, Semisopochnoi, and Cleveland. While Mauna Loa and Kilauea are both on Hawaii’s Big Island, the rest under the Yellow code are in Alaska.

Within the United States, the USGS tracks 169 potentially active volcanoes, most of which are in Alaska. Alaska is home to many volcanoes, though; there are more than 130 volcanoes and volcanic fields which have been active within the geologically young last 2 million years. 50 have been active since the mid 1700s and AVO studies those too. Another place famous for its volcanoes is Hawaii; on the Big Island of Hawaii, Kilauea, Mauna Loa, and Hualalai are considered active and potential threats, however none are erupting as of today. Kilauea did start a fresh eruption in December 2020, but that eruption came to an end just weeks ago. The Hawaii volcanoes are monitored by the Hawaii Volcano Observatory (HVO) while the Alaska volcanoes are monitored by the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO.) In addition to the AVO and HVO, there are also the California Volcano Observatory , Cascades Volcano Observatory, and the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory. Each of those additional volcano observatories within the USGS are monitoring volcanoes in their respective regions. At this time, none of those other observatories are reporting unusual activity or signs of anything more than background noise for now.

Carl Bernstein: Trump is a 'war criminal'

In labeling Trump a war criminal, Bernstein specifically pointed to his administration's response to the Covid-19 health crisis and the January 6 Capitol riot. The journalist said it's important to look at the "tens of thousands of people who died because of his homicidal negligence in the pandemic" and his "fomenting a coup to hold on to office." Trump put his own electoral interest above the health of Americans "as they were slaughtered in this pandemic," Bernstein added.

Bernstein has been a very vocal critic of Trump. In February, following the Capitol riot, he told CNN's Anderson Cooper that he considered the ex-president to be the "first seditious president in our history."

me thinks he is.

and Obummer before. The US is a war machine whose economy is dependent on fossil fuel and military destruction. We will reap our just rewards...in fact looking at weather events we already are.

is not to mean there are others as well. Just as they all sing the same song, each of them sounds a little different.
