Someone Else's Thought For The Day

Austin Bay on Nuclear Power

I can hear the fear-mongering ancestor of the Deep Left Fielder in a cave, oh, 60,000 years ago. "Don't burn that log, Bay. You will anger the tree nymphs, and they will destroy us."

What are your questions on this block of instruction?
