    Better hope it does not spread to China - you might have to buy Ridgid wrenches again. The Harbor freight virus.

    Its on its way to England for a secret mission to make it our next state.

    - For past crimes against humanity
    - To teach us about health care and building cute villages
    - For us to teach them how to speak an intelligible language
    - For us to teach them to build a motorcycle that doesnt leak oil
    - For Them to show us how to stay out of wars until the last possible minute

    Hillary will be the temporary queen. Donald Rumsfied will be King.

    And by the way Fukushima DID MELT DOWN so maybe we should change the thread title...

    The job IS done, japan just needs a few billion yards of concrete to cover it all up with. I think a Brit invented the best variety, so lets allow them to donate it.

    Now comes the question...

    Over there we can't exactly call it "China Syndrome" so if they can't get the meltdown under control...

    Do we call it "USA Syndrome?"

    Actually if you go to the opposite side of the earth it should land in the South Atlantic off the Brazil Uruguay border...;)

    Burglarized is not a word.

    It is quite amazing what an average person can forget on a boat.

    They certainly weren't our brightest and best.

    But they did like God more than most.

    Considering the quality of healthcare at jamestown, and the tools of warfare, it was an essential dream. The Inquisition helped a bit too. Made a lot of people taller.

    Millions of tons of debris that washed into the ocean during Japan's catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in March — everything from furniture to roofs to pieces of cars — are moving steadily toward the West Coast and raising concerns about a potential environmental headache.

    Well.....there goes our clean beaches.

    I wonder if a good rice cooker will wash up? I could use a good rice cooker.
