VOLCANOES, ARABS, AND JEWS, OH MY!!!

Y'all heard about Yellowstone National Park having a series of pretty strong quakes as of late? YEEHA! Exciting and troubling news to scientists, who are a bit concerned that the volcano right underneath this natural national gem might blow its top perhaps sometime in the near future? YIKES! Have you any idea what a tremendous catastrophe that would be for that thing to go off? It'd be worse than a nuke being detonated really! From my limited knowledge thanks to The Discovery Channel, it's not just a volcano, it's a SUPERVOLCANO! Such an explosion would be loud enough to be heard across the United States and cover most of the country with falling ash/dust that would be deadly. The sun would be blocked out for months! Hey, we can't control nature, but let's pray/hope this most powerful force doesn't decide to show off its potential anytime soon. Mt. St. Helens would look like a walk in the park!

What am I going to do with Israel and the Arab world? Why do you people over there keep killing each other like this?! The fighting just never stops here! WHY?!! WHYYYYYYYY???!!! Okay, I'm being a bit melodramatic here, but I just don't get it. Yes, after the suffering of WWII, the Jews took this seemingly boring patch of land and it's now this really cool developed civilized country, but the claim is these poor Arab people that were already there were just thrown out and pushed aside, treated worse than animals. What a spectacle! I'm not anti-Semitic at all (I love you Howard BIG-NOSED Stern), but I often ask myself if Israel doesn't go too far at times?! Just this past week, certain hardcore Orthodox Jews here in the States were actually protesting Israel's current invasion of Gaza. WHOA! I'm not anti-Arab either. As a matter of fact, I have been with many Jewish and Arab men, and yum...ER. UH... OOPS! Anyway, why was Hamas firing rockets into Israel like that and hiding in that school? BOTH sides are so mean/nasty to each other at this point and my co-worker was explaining to me that the Jews and Arabs come from the same bloodline anyway and crap, all the way back to Abraham! Religion and this volatile Holy Land area are so migraine-inducing that I cease to even try to figure it all out anymore, but it is fascinating to just witness/observe this all take place. This is a dangerous conflict that could spread like wildfire throughout the region and turn it into an even wider war. Attacks on Jews in Europe are sadly increasing.

But boy, people really do hate the Jews! I can categorically tell you I don't, but this kid's show aired in Palestine is disturbing and a real hoot to watch at the same time. I actually laugh out loud at stuff like this. Farfour, my new favorite cartoon character:

You've gotta lay off the cable channels for awhile.
All this doomsday stuff isn't good for you.
And besides, it's all irrelevant cause we'll be wiped off the planet from the zombie wars coming very very soon.

You know I read this post yesterday in school and I had no idea. Man, you are bringing me down. I think you should take A Lewis' advice (and if you don't I may have to).

You can easily spend all day worrying about everything! I stopped worrying about the big earthquake...when it happens it happens. I mustadmit, volcanos do freak me out tho.

u should have heard last nights coast to coast.. you would have laughed your ass off.. it was SO doom and gloom.. the guy described what would happen if theres a hiccup to our "fragile planet" during 2012.. mainly.. when we move towards that "plane" during the solar flare asteroid or planet bump.

I kept wondering what state I would fly to.
