Amazon turns a profit. About time, Dammit. Actually, I say good for them. I love shopping with Amazon and I'm happy to see things swing their way.

Just heard on the news "Scientists are warning that the lava is very hot."

News Flash! The lava flow, previously though to just be incredibly cool is 'fucking hot as hell'. Experts are now warning citizens to avoid prolonged exposure to the molten rock, lest scalding occur.  8:00:00 PM  permalink   Add a comment
