Steam Escaping!

thanks rich... and other LARP geeks

You may have already heard....but, in case you haven't....it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person which almost went un-noticed last week. Larry La Prise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at age 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the casket. They put his left leg in... and then the trouble started.

Steam Escaping!

big fire

There is an oil refinery burning on staten island.. its been going since 10 o clock apparently. I have no links since the news websites are pretty much crap, and i have no pics beeks my digicam is at home on my desk.

Prelim reports are saying it was an accident caused by a barge unloading. If by accident they mean "someone starting a whole lot of oil on fire or blowing something up to start a whole lot of oil on fire", then i think they are right.

Bloody online media is burying this.
