2 Random thoughts/questions...

One is completely evil and I'll admit that...

1 - Do you think Michael Schaivo is somewhat grateful to the Pope for dying. It totally takes the heat off him?

2 - And I'll admit to my ignorance of the earth's subsurface. But, we pump out all this oil or natural gas or whatever, why doesn't the earth collapse in those sections and take you know, half of Texas with it? In my mind oil veins are kind of like these big under ground lakes of oil. When you suck the oil, wouldn't the land collapse... kind of like when liposuction happens and the fat is sucked out and the skin gets flattened? Am I complete idiot for even thinking this way? :)

1. Anyone with bad press is glad when someone else takes the limelight regardless of the circumstances. Unfortunately it seems that even the Pope can't take the light of Michael Jackson these days...

2. A little bit of land loss in TX might not be a bad thing. If your theory is right, and lets keep our fingers crossed that it is, let's keep it our little secret...

First of all, holy crap. The comments window actually "popped up" today. Will wonders never cease.

1. I agree with previous commenters on this one.
2. How spooky. I was just having this conversation with my colleagues at the bar last night. We focused mainly on the Middle East, but losing a bit of TX is something to hope for. Fingers crossed!

If it's anything like The Wrath of Khan (and I can't stand Star Trek), then hopefully the whole surface of Texas will be terraformed for pretty birdies and crawling thingies instead of the current sloth in residence.
