In some ways I'm kind of sorry that our volcanoes here in the PNW produce ash instead of lava.
(Being on the receiving end of a volcanic ash-fall is a royal pain. It happened here in Beaverton in 1980, and if it never happens again in my lifetime that'll be just fine with me.)

Care to see something that will turn your stomach? Metafilter wishes Chelsea Manning a happy birthday, and calls him a "hero". (And a "patriot".)
(OK, to cases: Manning's name has been legally changed. Manning's sex has not been. But God help you if you use "he" or "him" to refer to Manning on Metafilter; the TransLiberationFront will swarm you.)
I was thoroughly disgusted and posted this:
I can't believe this post. Manning is a traitor and should have met a hangman's noose.
As you might imagine, it was deleted by the mods.
The liberals at Metafilter, like all American liberals, pride themselves on being tolerant and inclusive. In practice, what that means is they tolerate you if you agree with them, otherwise not. I mostly ignore hot-button political threads, but this one I couldn't let go by, even though I knew my comment wasn't going to survive.
At Metafilter, anyone who hates the US and does something that damages it is a hero. (They idolize Snowden, too.) I shouldn't let it get to me, but once in a while it's just too much.

When I see pictures of Obama these days, the word that comes to mind is supercilious.
Except that it isn't strong enough. Maybe hypercilious or megacilious.
With chapter 700 (which, it has to be admitted, is an amazingly long run).
Fairy Tail is only at chapter 407; I hope it keeps going for a long time.
UPDATE: Naruto was about an apprentice assassin (a ninja). 700 chapters; did he ever kill anyone?

RandomC got around to watching Twintails and was inspired to Shakespearean heights.
