Out of the Blue

Happy National Lobster Day, an annual crustacean celebration. I will not be joining in on the festivities, as I am just not a seafood person, aside from the occasional crab cake. Wait, I take that back. What better way to celebrate lobsters than by declining to eat one after boiling it alive? I hereby declare myself the unofficial chairman of National Lobster Day. Just try and claw the title away from me.

Lobster are delicious.
I've watched my mom buy and boil them. I've had them in restaurants. I've cooked them. I've had them with green eggs and ham.

Maybe. I had doubts about it the first time I tried cooking lobster, but the fact is they are extremely alien and faceless and unintelligent. I generally try to trap and release bugs that wander into my apartment, but if that’s not feasible, I’m also okay with killing them: I found my response to killing a lobster was exactly the same. I had spent money and was about to have a delicious meal, ergo into the boiling water goes the weird sea bug. If the water is at a rolling boil they die in well under ten seconds and don’t have a developed enough brain to experience suffering, just an instinctual pain/danger stimulus response.

In contrast I don’t think I could slaughter a chicken, cow, or pig unless the alternative was starvation, and even then I’d feel bad about it.

A bit of a segue, but I had to take care of my brother's pet python for several months. One day I was bringing home a mouse for him to eat from the pet store, and when I got home I found that the rodent had chewed it's way out of the box and hidden somewhere in my van on the drive home. I looked for it for a half hour with no luck.

Then I kicked myself for being an idiot. I got the python, and tossed him in the van and went inside to make myself dinner. Came back to the van an hour later, and the python had a nice little bulge in him. So I assumed he found the mouse.... that or he had swallowed my tire jack.

He probably had a great time hunting for his own food for a change.

Cool pet. Never thought snakes had personalities until I took care of him.

back in the late 80s I was stationed in germany. Friday night was the rat run when we would nuke the autobahns back to holland for the ferry. Remember that most autobahns are two lanes. I had a kawasaki gpz900 and was fully wound out many times (about 160mph) and things still overtook me. I cant remember the fuel capacity but i often hit reserve in holland and tended to fill up there.

You dont realise at 20 how dangerous this was really and I did that most friday afternoons and most monday mornings.

As for dangerous volcanoes, fuji would like a word with you. Its danger zone was reviewed in 2018.

Videos of fru-fru houses built close to active volcanoes or in known flood zones, and then gettng over run with lava or water, always give me a certain Darwinian flavored chuckle.

Just wanted to plug cooking lobster at home. It's super easy and not at all intimidating once you actually go and do it. It's also kind of hilarious if you happen to get an energetic lobster because they will try to fight you despite their claws being rubber banded shut. Just grab the sucker by the tail with tongs and dump him head first into boiling water: when the shell is bright red, it's ready to eat. You're not gonna feel bad about it: it's just an overgrown sea bug.

True. But certainly less crazy than the fools rebuilding multiple times in the Mississippi River flood plain...

Mount Vesubius is regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world because of the population of 3,000,000 people living near enough to be affected by an eruption, with 600,000 directly in the danger zone, in the most densely populated volcanic region in the world.

"See Naples and die". Mmm, you certainly have a risk.
Plans should also include nearby Naples since an explosion could send dangerous burning ash and pumice as far as 12 miles (20 kilometers), endangering more than 3 million people and wiping out the city of Naples if things went really wrong.

No booze shortages here. I suppose that's one time it's advantageous having the government control acquisition and distribution as they buy in bulk. Of course we get screwed with luxury taxes on the supply end however. A bottle of table wine that's $5 anywhere else on earth is $20 here.

The volcano erupted after a weeklong buildup of seismic activity.
The Canary Islands Volcanology Institute reported the initial eruption near the southern end of the island, which saw its last eruption in 1971.
