"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

Will They Sink Her?

This is all pretty damn terrifying.

Jack Crow said...

In the long run, I think methane clathrates are the real fucking hell story - but I believe I understand your sentiment, Ethan.

All the same, in case I'm (predictably) wrong, what is the "this" to which you refer?



Ethan said...

Just the thought of people knowingly heading towards an Israel that has said that next time they're going to hit harder. I can't even imagine having the bravery to do that.

And methane clathrates, hoo boy yes, but I wasn't trying to say that this is the most terrifying thing that's going on right now. Just one item out of many.

Jack Crow said...

Yah, Ethan...knowingly heading into the breach. Some courage, that.

Sorry about the misunderstanding, too. Wasn't trying for an "outscare." Just easier to put the other stuff in perspective if I keep the methane clathrates at the top of the list.

Ethan said...

No misunderstanding; no need to apologize.
