Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, December 09, 2019

A webcam set up on New Zealand's White Island volcano shows at least one group of tourists were inside the crater moments before it erupted and blanketed the area in a massive ash cloud. A crater rim camera owned and operated by New Zealand geological hazards agency GeoNet shows groups of people walking near the rim inside the crater, where white smoke constantly billows at a low level, in the hour leading up to the eruption at 2:11 p.m. ... Several people were killed and injured with others reported missing after the eruption.

You need to try harder to not be such a vile person.

Thanks for the advice, but I'm perfectly comfortable with my current level of vileness.

Looks like the entire island erupted.

This is what the Darwin awards were created for. Seriously, going in the crater of a volcano that erupted less than 20 years ago is almost like playing Russian roulette.

Okay. Since we all understand it as a scam to preserve the ever-diminishing coal industry, what would you have them spend the money on? Something green? Geothermal is ever-present whether it's harnessed or not.

Gaia has takin' a crap...no trees left to make the paper, nor nary a leaf of grass
she stands there befouled with humanity clung to her ass
if we would just listen we could hear her meditate o'er the turd
about her decision..."it's time maybe now, to thin out the herd"

mine is observation and contemplation and not mean't to be assessed as an invitation

and as far as your suggestion.."give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach him to fish etc.". why suicide, it's more fun to hunt.

--.."think "boy how stupid can you be??? Then if they did die... how many would be promoted....it's time maybe now, to thin out the herd"

GOOD... usually the heard;s that tend to go are the rich among us... if any survived, they just get on their private jets and fly back to brag about their latest adventure at corporate cocktail parties...

ALL journeys have exactly the same end. It's only the conveyance that fosters dispute.
