Big!

Just a quickie post to show a totally cool picture that warms my science-y heart. Here is a picture of the ash cloud from Mt. Redoubt taken from a geostationary satellite that is over Asia. That is freaking enormous!

Bite me, Bobby Jindal. (I know, I know, that's a gratuitous snark, but I couldn't help myself.)

Bobby Jindal can kiss my lily white ass, too.

And we like that you indulge in gratuitous snark. Don't ever change.

Picture is marvelous, Jindal is a tool, snark was appropriate.

Nathan said...

What Eric said. LMAO.

A friend in Anchorage wants to invite Jindal to tea on her patio among the ashfall - lapsang souchong (smoked tea) by choice. :)

Any snark regarding Jindal is not gratuitous.

Cool picture!
