Good News

Good news includes all the things which make us happy or otherwise feel good. It can be personal or public. We never know when something wonderful will happen, and when it does, most people want to share it with someone. It's disappointing when nobody is there to appreciate it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our joys and pat each other on the back.

What good news have you had recently? Are you anticipating any more? Have you found a cute picture or a video that makes you smile?

In today's Oh Shit alert ...

 ... a large fissure has appeared near Yellowstone.

Well, that would be one way to stop global warming.  O_O

Theoretically, the chance of a cataclysmic eruption is low.  But these are the same monkeys who think the Earth is always slow because it is big.  It isn't likely to erupt, but it could.  The fact that Yellowstone has been fidgeting  for a couple decades makes me uneasy. 

The fact that humans have been drilling, dumping, and generally tampering with the environment also means that things can change -- like, say, the 4000% increase in earthquakes in Oklahoma.  It's kind of like playing Jenga; you move one thing and the whole tower collapses.  Only we're standing on the tower, and if it collapses, we all die.
